Fresh Hope – 16th October 2017

Many times we are in need of an answer to prayer and even a miracle. At those times, it’s important to remember the goodness and faithfulness of God. “If He’s done it before, He will do it again.”

In Matthew chapter 14 there is a big need. 5000 men plus women and children need food and Jesus feeds them with just 5 loaves and 2 fish.
Just one chapter later there’s a similar situation, 4000 plus people and a little more food this time, seven loaves of bread.. and Jesus performs another miracle.

Yet in verse 33 of this chapter the disciples are asking “where can we find enough food to feed all these people?” Hello! Haven’t they just witnessed a similar miracle, one with more people and less food? Why are they doubting and asking how it can possibly be done?

Whatever your need today, don’t focus on it – focus instead on the faithfulness of God.
Whatever miracle you need, don’t focus on that need, focus on the miracle working power of God.
Whatever your problem today, don’t focus on the problem, instead focus on the Almighty power of God.

You see, we would think the disciples were stupid here, they’re actually with Jesus and witnessing His miraculous power first hand, yet they’re still doubting!
We are so like that at times.

Failure to see God’s past goodness will limit your faith for your future miracle.

Remember – if He’s done it before, He can do it again!

Rise up in faith today and get ready for your miracle.
