Feeling Like You Don’t Have What it Takes?

Jeff Cavins

Do you ever feel like you don’t have what it takes to do God’s will? Today, Jeff shares some scripture verses that show God’s provision in our lives, and how he can do great things with little gestures of faith. 

Snippet of the Show

“Jesus called you to be his disciple, and he made that decision knowing that whatever you brought to the table, he could use.”




Shownotes

Mattew 14:13-21: Feeding of the Five Thousand

“Now when Jesus heard this, he withdrew from there in a boat to a lonely place apart. But when the crowds heard it, they followed him on foot from the towns. As he went ashore he saw a great throng; and he had compassion on them, and healed their sick. When it was evening, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a lonely place, and the day is now over; send the crowds away to go into the villages and buy food for themselves.” Jesus said, “They need not go away; you give them something to eat.” They said to him, “We have only five loaves here and two fish.” And he said, “Bring them here to me.” Then he ordered the crowds to sit down on the grass; and taking the five loaves and the two fish he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. And they all ate and were satisfied. And they took up twelve baskets full of the broken pieces left over. And those who ate were about five thousand men, besides women and children.”

Galatians 6:7-8

“Do not be deceived; God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption; but he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.”
