Question of the day: Okay, Let's be clear. I could write about this chapter and nothing else every day for a year. The first thing that happens is a great crowd is hungry. 5,000 men reclined in the grass at Yeshua's instruction. What did they eat?
Answer: They ate 5 loaves and 2 fish ... and at the end there was more than when they started. In fact, there were 12 baskets of leftovers! How did that happen? It happened because Yeshua gave thanks. John 6:11 "Then Yeshua picked up the loaves. And having given thanks, He distributed bread to everyone who was reclining. He did the same with the fish, as much as they wanted."
How does that work? It's a miracle, but I would like to add some perspective to it. What God does, is done with such power that it keeps on being done. God sets things in motion and by His power, what God sets in motion defies the laws of physics; it stays in motion. The food that was blessed by Yeshua kept on giving, and giving, and giving.
This is why I believe there is never a shortage in the kingdom of God. Psalm 34:11(10)b "... those who seek Adonai want for no good thing." We are the children of God. Matthew 7:11 "If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!" Yes, our inheritance is to stand on God's Word. Philippians 4:19 "My God will fulfill every need of yours according to the riches of His glory in Messiah Yeshua." God will supply all your needs, but I hope you like fish. It's what's for dinner.
