Do it again
Mark 8:16-21 (MSG)
Meanwhile, the disciples were finding fault with each other because they had forgotten to bring bread. Jesus overheard and said, “Why are you fussing because you forgot bread? Don’t you see the point of all this? Don’t you get it at all? Remember the five loaves I broke for the five thousand? How many baskets of leftovers did you pick up?” They said, “Twelve.” “And the seven loaves for the four thousand—how many bags full of leftovers did you get?” “Seven.” He said, “Do you still not get it?”
Isn’t it ironic that one minute the disciples are in the midst of amazing breakthrough and experiencing the most extreme of miracles, and then soon after that they find themselves in lack?
Oh, while it’s happening they can believe. They can see the bread being passed around and not ending, never running out. It just keeps going and feeds all those people. Not only that, there are leftovers!
Suddenly they find themselves in the same situation, however this time they just need to feed themselves. They forgot their lunch and somehow they don’t expect God will come through.
Did they forget what Jesus has just done? Twice? Or do they just not believe He will do it again? Clearly they were not thinking with a spiritual mind but a logical, humanistic one.
Jesus can do it again and will do it again! He may not do it exactly the same way, but have faith, start expecting for it again.
The fact that He did it once is a guarantee He can come through again. He wants to bring abundance again, He wants to heal again, He wants to break down bondages again.
So if you find yourself asking for a miracle He has done before: reflect, wait, expect and believe He will do it again!
