Daily in Your Presence - Dec. 13

Day 348


Taking the five loaves and the two fish

and looking up to heaven,

he gave thanks and broke the loaves.

Matthew 14:19

My child, what's in your hand? When I once asked Moses, I turned his rod to a serpent and back again. I once asked that question of a little boy and multiplied his offering of five loaves and two fish to feed over five thousand men and their families. Whatever you have in your hand is what I will take and use, My child, to feed others and to multiply My kingdom's work. Trust My resourcefulness. What seems little to you is all I need.

Lord, You took a lump of clay and created man. You turn a desert into a springtime garden and dig a well from a mirage. You feed thousands with only crumbs. My "I think I can't" turns to "I know I can" when I look at Your resourcefulness, Lord. You're amazing.


A king deserves a royal prize, beyond all earthly measure,
I'll give my heart, and nothing less — the highest of my treasure.
