God provides

I get frustrated with the disciples when I read in the gospel of Mark how they questioned Jesus' ability to feed the 4,000. Jesus had already fed 5,000 with only 5 loaves and 2 fish. The disciples had already witnessed this miracle of multiplication and provision. How could they so quickly forget and doubt?

Well, do we do the same thing in our lives? Do we forget how God's hand has been on our lives; how He has delivered us; how He has provided for us? When the going gets tough, do we question God's ability to deliver us and provide for us?

We serve and follow the God of the universe who is full of love for His children and who is completely able and capable. We have no need to doubt or to fear. "God will meet all our needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus."
