You are Invited

‘Here is a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they go among so many?’  John 6:9

Today you are invited to consider what you may be holding back from God because you don’t think it is good enough?  Is it a talent, a skill, a home, a few coins?  How do you feel about offering it to God?  How do you think the child felt?  It was his lunch.  He could go hungry if he gave it.  How do you think he felt that evening, when he had seen a miracle happen with his small picnic?  How would you feel if God took your small talent, skill, your home, or the few coins you have and multiplied it so that it blessed many people?  Talk to Him today asking Him what it is that you have that He would like to use.  Ask Him to help you to release it to Him.  How strong is your trust in Him that He will not leave you bereft because of your gift?  How is He reassuring you?  What action is He asking you to take?

May God bless you as you give Him whatever you may be holding back – and may your faith grow stronger as you see Him use it for His glory.

About Mandy Hackland

My love in life is to encourage others to deepen their relationship with God. I write devotional material, stories and small group studies with that in mind. I live in South Africa and also love spending time in the bush, bird watching and walking. I do live in the city but make the most of the green spaces that surround me.
