Genesis 26:1-35; Job 32:1-33:33; Matthew 13:44-14:12

And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do. John 6:6

Whenever you face something overwhelming, rest assured that the Lord already knows what He is going to do. Yet, because of His gracious nature, the Lord is always inviting us to be involved in His work. The disciples on this occasion were tasked with feeding thousands, a job well beyond anyone’s ability. Not only did Jesus want them to come up with ideas on how to feed the masses, He also wanted them to organize the event and execute it. But Jesus knew what He was going to do. What’s He going to do in your impossible situation? —Shane Johnson

All things are possible to God; to Christ, the power of God in man;
To me when I am all renewed, in Christ am fully formed again.—Wesley
