DCLM Daily Manna 17 January 2022 Devotional By Pastor W. F. Kumuyi — Little Things In God’s Hands

TOPIC: Little Things In God’s Hands

TEXT: Matthew 15:32-39

32 Then Jesus called his disciples unto him, and said, I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint in the way.

33 And his disciples say unto him, Whence should we have so much bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a multitude?

34 And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven, and a few little fishes.

35 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground.

36 And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave thanks, and brake them, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.

37 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets full.

38 And they that did eat were four thousand men, beside women and children.

39 And he sent away the multitude, and took ship, and came into the coasts of Magdala.

KEY VERSE: “And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven, and a few little fishes” (MATTHEW 15:34).


Quite often, we focus on our personal inadequacies, the talents and abilities we lack. We neglect our little endowments and gifts, and conclude that nothing worthwhile can come from us. As a result, we give up easily or become discouraged. We forget that God does not work by the enormity of our spiritual or physical possessions, but by His own sovereign power.

Jesus had been in a retreat with His followers. After three days of going without food, He became concerned about the wellbeing of the people. He would not send them home on empty stomach, “lest they faint in the way”. He turned to His disciples to inquire about their stock of food. They promptly informed Him that it was not much, just seven loaves and few little fishes. How could this possibly feed thousands of people? But Jesus was not looking for a large store of food; He had the power to multiply few loaves into a large provision for multitudes.

Quite amazingly, everyone in the crowd ate to their fill, leaving seven surplus baskets of the remnants of the food. Beside women and children, there were four thousand men in the gathering.

God does not need our help to do anything for us. He only demands that we believe in His ability to do anything we may require to live fruitfully. Our faith is the key that unlocks His supernatural works. It enables us to believe that God can do anything. Whatever the situation, He “is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think.”

Little things become great in the Almighty’s hands.

Acts 7-8
