344 Honouring the Creator

“Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, (Jesus) gave thanks and broke the loaves” (Mark 6:41).

The Complete Jewish Bible says that He made b’rakhah, the traditional blessing for the bread. The version of the b’rakhah used before meals today is most likely much the same as the one He used. It acknowledges the source of supply and returns thanks to the Creator. Could this be the secret to miraculous supply and teach us an important truth?

We always talking about Jesus feeding the 5,000, which He did, but this prayer would indicate that He turned to You as the source of supply. It was by the power of the Spirit in which He lived and moved that He accessed Your provision. He was not seeking glory for Himself in the miracle but pointing to You. Whether we are distributing material or spiritual bread to others this is surely an important lesson for us. I try to do it by using italics in these reflections, Lord. Is that valid?

As long as the source of the food is from Me, My Spirit will make sure it is satisfying and accomplishes its purpose in lives that are open to receive it. And don’t grieve at the misprints and human errors! My Word is a sharp sword that can cut through any barrier.
