No Easy Answers

There are no easy answers to your spiritual life.

You have a purpose and you are to pursue My way.

Each person has different talents and abilities.

You are an ordinary person.

I do not ask you to achieve goals beyond your limitations.

However, little is much in My hands.

I want you to recall the miracle of the five loaves and two fish.

They multiplied until there were twelve baskets of food left over

after the multitude had eaten.

Christianity began in a humble stable and on a cruel cross.

Men in power were afraid of an itinerant teacher

who had no worldly possessions.

My disciples had nothing either.

Yet, Christianity became known in all parts of the world.

Christian principles change lives, even countries.

Stay true to My Word!

Do not be concerned with the world’s opinions and ways.

 “As the heavens are higher than the earth,

so are my ways higher than your ways

and my thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:9(NIV)

When the disciples distributed the loaves and fishes they were only each given a small portion. It is entirely probable they never saw more than what they held in their hands until the task was finished and people had eaten their fill. Faith pleases the Father. The full picture of what He has accomplished through our obedience and submission to the place and time where He has put us will only be seen when the race is finished.
