There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?
Note 3 at Joh 6:9: Notice that Jesus didn't just turn some of the stones into bread (as Satan had tempted Him to do in Lu 4:3). We find only one instance in Scripture where God created a supply to meet a need (Nu 11:21-23). Usually, the Lord simply blesses what we set our hands to do (De 28:8; 1Ki 17:12-16; 2Ki 4:2-7, and 42-44). The resources were totally inadequate to meet the need in this instance, but when the Lord blessed it, there was more than enough. When in need, we should seek God's direction for something to set our hands to and then trust Him to bless it (De 28:8) and multiply the results of our work. But one hundred times zero is zero. Many people have missed their miracles because they never took that first step of faith and used what they had. This young lad was certainly credited with part of this miracle for offering what he had.
