God is Stretching your Faith!
GOD PAUSE: You and I both know that the lifestyle or path of a Jesus follower involves faith. But sometimes faith is a little hard to describe or understand. So God gives us pictures or stories in the Bible to help us. And one of those is when Jesus was about to feed the multitude. John 6:5, 6 says “As Jesus sat down, he looked out and saw the massive crowd of people scrambling up the hill, for they wanted to be near him. So he turned to Philip and said 'Where will we buy enough food to feed all these people?' Now Jesus already knew what he was about to do, but he said this to stretch Philip's faith.” Dear Papa, you are stretching my and my friend's faith. You already know what you are going to --- and how. But you want to involve us in the process. So we will do our part while we trust you to do yours. Amen and amen.
