My pastor shared about the story of Jesus feeding the 5000 today. Rather than running away from the daunting task of what to do for these 5000, He lifted His eyes up (John 6:5) and saw the crowd. He saw their needs, both physical and spiritual, and fulfilled them. Sometimes we want to just ignore the problems around us, the seemingly impossible tasks ahead of us, but when we give what little we have and just trust God, He does amazing things.
My foes are many, they rise against me. But I will hold my ground. I will not fear the war, I will not fear the storm. My help is on the way, my help is on the way. Oh, my God, He will not delay, my refuge and strength always. I will not fear, His promise is true. My God will come through always, always. I lift my eyes up, my help comes from the Lord.
