Things just don’t add up whenever God is in the details of the human mind. Please make a mental note that the following Scriptures required obedience and faith before each miracle occurred. God uses ordinary things to create extraordinary feats.
At the wedding in Cana, Jesus instructed the servants to go and fill six empty vessels with water; in obedience, they went. On the way back, the water changed to fine wine, befitting for a king; (John 2:9-10).
In John 9:6, a blind man desired his sight. So Jesus made a mixture using dirt and saliva, He applied it to the man’s eyelids, and immediately his sight was restored.
On another occasion, a deaf and mute man received a double miracle because he believed. First, Jesus placed his fingers in his ears and then spit and touched the man’s tongue; both ears were opened, and the man’s tongue was loosed; (Mark 7:33).
Jesus also taught the principles of sowing and reaping in Matthew 13:8. He said, it’s possible to sow a seed and reap a harvest, some 30, 60, or 100 times the size of the seed that was sown. The miracle happens when you believe that you can receive the blessings that God has in store for you.
“Whatever you have in your hand, however small or insignificant it may seem, if you give it to God, He will use it mightily.”
And lastly, we have the parable of “Five Thousand Fed”, found in John 6:9-14. Jesus went up a mountainside and sat down there with his disciples. This was the time of the Passover. Following Jesus was a crowd of 5,000 people. His disciples were concerned because they did have any food to feed the people. However, there was a little boy who had five barley loaves and two fish for his meal. Jesus told the people to sit down and he asked for the loaves to be brought to him. He gave thanks and distributed to the people who were seated. He did the same with the fish, everyone ate as much they wanted. There were 12 large baskets with pieces from the barley loaves left over.
The moral of this parable is “Little is much when God is in the details!” Give God your offering, whatever you have, your gifts, talents, or sacrifice. It doesn’t matter how small or insignificant they may seem, God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above all that we can ask or think. Christians should expect God to meet their needs because that’s a promise, and He wants to lavish His children with spiritual blessings, even to overflowing.
“God is in every detail!”
