April 1

“Jesus took the loaves, and when
He had given thanks He distributed them to the disciples,
and the disciples to those sitting down; and likewise of
the fish, as much as they wanted. They… filled
twelve baskets with the fragments of the five
barley loaves which were left over by those
who had eaten.”
JOHN 6:11,13

The issue is never what we have or what we are doing, but rather, do we have the Lord’s blessing?

With the Lord’s Blessing we have Infinite Supply. Practically speaking, it means instead of trying to convince the Lord to bless what I want to do or what I think needs to be done, I should find out first what the Lord wants to BLESS and do THAT instead. Remember, “He Himself knew what He would do.” (John 6:6). Thus, we pray, “Not my will, but Your Will be done; not my kingdom, but Your Kingdom come.” And then we enjoy the Lord’s Blessing on our work.
