Do you know that Jesus is the ” MASTER OF REMINDER “? As a result, we are so blessed, all because we are so doubtful and forgetful at times. In reality, no matter how often Jesus met the very needs of those came to Him, yet after witnessing miracles, His first disciples still failed to understand the great meaning the Lord wanted them to remember.
On a journey across the Sea of Galillee, the disciples realized they had forgotten to bring bread and were talking about it. ““Jesus, being aware of it, said to them, “Why do you reason because you have no bread? Do you not yet perceive nor understand? Is your heart still hardened? Having eyes, do you not see? And having ears, do you not hear? And do you not remember?”
(Mark 8:17-18 )
Then He reminded them that He fed five thousand people with just five loaves, and the disciples had collected twelve more basketful of leftover pieces, and another instant when He fed four thousand with seven loaves, they filled another seven baskets with leftovers. Then He said to them, “How is it you do not understand?” (Mark 8:21)
Our Lord’s miraculous provision for our physical needs always pointed to a greater truth – Let’s be reminded that our Lord’s great love and provision not only for our physical needs but more for our spiritual needs, which we must never take for granted! God bless
