Warrior Wedsnesdays: Blessings Beyond Your Expectations
Do you know that God wants to bless you with more than you need and with more than you could ever want? Mark chapter 8 demonstrates how God blesses far beyond our needs and desires.
Many of us have heard the story of Jesus feeding a large crowd with a few loaves of bread and a few fish, but did you know he preformed this miracle twice? He fed a group of 5000 with five loaves of bread and a group of 4000 with seven loaves. One of the most amazing parts about the story is there was food remaining!
Jesus speaking to his disciples asked ,"When I brake the five loaves among five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? And they said, Seven. And when the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? And they said seven." Mark 8:19-20 This shows that after Jesus had fed both groups there was still baskets full of food. There was more food than the people could eat. Think about that for a moment, Jesus provided enough food to feed 5000 people and still have baskets of food left over! That is a lot of food! Not only did God meet the need of the crowd but he exceeded the need.
When you are going through a trying situation remember God WILL bless you with more than you need or could even want. He blesses far above our heart's desires! Have faith and believe!
Stay Blessed and Continue Warring for Christ!
