Twelve ministers boarded a flight in Miami for New York. Shortly after takeoff, the plane encountered a terrible unexpected storm. The people onboard became frightened as the aircraft bounced and shifted with the currents.
One of the clergymen called to a flight attendant and said, “Tell the Captain that everything will be okay because twelve ministers from Miami are onboard.”
Politely excusing herself, she phoned the Captain with the news. A moment later, she returned to the minister and said, “The Captain asked that I tell you that he was honored to have all of you on board the flight. But he also asked that I tell you that he would rather have four dependable jet engines.”
Jesus, our Savior, was a miracle worker. He specialized in accomplishing supernatural things for God through ordinary people and ordinary things. What He did then He can do now. Neither He nor his power has changed. What was then, is today, and will be forever.
When He fed the five thousand, He used the lunch of a small boy to feed the hungry crowd. He took that small insignificant gift and accomplished one of His greatest miracles. The lesson in that miracle for us? No one is ever too young and no gift too small for God to accept, bless, and use to accomplish great things that will honor Him.
Prayer: Father, may we realize that it is not the size of our gift that mattes, but our willingness to allow You to do great things through us. Give us willing hearts. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture For Today: When the people saw him do this miraculous sign, they exclaimed, “Surely, he is the Prophet we have been expecting!” John 6:1-14
