John 6:7 – Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little.
Jesus had just finished teaching great multitudes. Hoards had followed Him to hear Him preach and be spiritually filled. But, the listening crowd had not eaten all day. As their spiritual hunger was quenched they forgot all about their physical hunger. When the disciples brought Jesus news of this, they began to be worried. Thinking practically, they thought that they did not have near enough money. They worried about the logistics of feeding such a large multitude. But as they worried, the King of Kings sat next to them ready to work a miracle.
It is easy now to laugh and realize the foolishness of the disciples’ ways. It may seem obvious to us that the disciples did not need to worry, but we do the same ourselves. Though Christ is with us all the time, we still worry about money and other things. But, like the disciples, while we are trying to think practically and solve problems on our own, the King of Kings is right there beside us ready to work a miracle. Whatever your particular situation, don’t worry. Have faith in Christ. He will work it out.
