LOOK UP IN FAITH

We can calmly take our concerns to God because he is as near as our next breath. This is the reassuring lesson from the miracle of the bread and fish. Jesus told his disciples to do the impossible: feed five thousand men, plus women and children. The disciples responded, “Send the multitudes away, that they may go into the villages and buy themselves food” (Matthew 14:15 NKJV).

Now you’re not facing five thousand hungry bellies, but you are facing a deadline, a loved one in need of a cure, a spouse entwined in temptation. And typically, you’d get anxious.
