John 6:7 Philip answered Him, “Two hundred denarii worth of bread is not sufficient for them, for everyone to receive a little.”
Now we have to look back at the verses before to see what it going on here. Jesus was testing Phillip by asking what they were going to do about the crowd, Phillip did what most of us would, answered to the best of his ability. He forgot to think about Who he was standing in front of. So many times I believe that God speaks to us through others, asking if we have have faith to get a job done, and we just look literally at what is in front of us, and not the whole picture with Jesus' arms wrapped around the scene. We need to realize that anything is possible with God, and there are times that He choses to use us and we need to look to Him. We need to get our eyes off of what is in front of us and look at the whole pictures. God wants to do great things, and it's high time that we believe that He wants to use us to do it! Listen for your question to come, and think about your answer before giving it - look and see the potential for God to show off!
