Faith needs exercising // 07-10-19

“As evening approached, the disciples came to him and said, ‘This is a remote place, and it’s already getting late. Send the crowds away, so that they can go to the villages and buy themselves some food.’ Jesus replied, ‘They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.’” Matthew‬ ‭14:15-16‬ ‭NIV

What an impossible demand from Jesus! How could twelve people feed the thousands that were there? Jesus knew tho‬‬, that in order to build their faith, their trust and confidence in Him, it needed to be exercised! You cannot develop muscles that are bigger and stronger without exercise and it’s the same with faith! When was the last time you put your faith to work? When were you last in a seemingly impossible situation where from your viewpoint you just didn’t have enough and you had to rely on Jesus? Lord, help me to see these moments as the faith growing exercises that they are, and build me into a faith-filled and faithful disciple of Yours, Amen 💪🏼
