Matt. 14:20 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.
Infinite supply, infinite is the one word that is incomprehensible. How can there be an infinite supply? I can’t understand it but His eternal attributes were glimpsed in the ministry of Jesus. There was the unprecedented water into wine, the mind numbing walking on water, the strange stilling of the storm. Who could ever forget the net-ripping, boat sinking catch of fish. Just when the disciples calmed down from one demonstration of God’s glory, there He was again, defying the odds and shocking everyone who happened to be there. The feeding of the multitudes grabbed all of the disciples attention. He was now bringing them into this arena called infinite. “You give them something to eat.” As they struggled to find food, they came across the little boy with the lunch. This was all they had, they were about to discover the infinite displayed in a little boy’s lunch. I have to say it again, infinite supply, how can there be a supply of anything that is limitless? Charles Spurgeon spoke about this infinite God who loves to display His glory.
“But this is the point that I want to show you: the power that multiplied the bread and the fish,and fed the thousands, had not come to an end. Their power to eat was exhausted, but not Christ’s power to feed; for when they had received to their utmost capacity, there was yet more to follow. The people were sharp set that day, the mountain air made their appetites keen, and their long fasting put a razor edge upon them; yet when they had all eaten to the full, great baskets were brought, and these were filled; in the one case twelve, and in the other seven of them. There is enough for each, enough for all, and still remaining for future needs. The infinite Worker reveals His infinity by His unstinted bounty, His unmeasured liberality.”
That is the amazing truth about God’s supply; enough for each, enough for all, and still ample supply for future needs. I am trying to let this soak into my head, He is and has more than enough for each of us in every circumstance. He is and has more than enough for all of us in every circumstance. He is and has more than enough for all of our future needs. Now I get it, that’s why the children of Israel in the wilderness were only allowed to gather enough manna for that day. God is a continual flowing fountain of provision. We are being taught to depend on Him everyday. There is sufficient grace available, there is infinite grace available, we are to drink it in each day.
So what kind of challenge are you facing today? Is it bigger than infinite? Take whatever you have, put it in the hand of the Lord, stand back and watch the Infinite One display His glory.
