"Late in the afternoon the twelve disciples came to him and said, 'Send the crowds away to the nearby villages and farms, so they can find food and lodging for the night. There is nothing to eat here in this deserted place.' But Jesus said, 'You feed them.' 'Impossible!' they protested. 'We have only five loaves of bread and two fish. Or are you expecting us to go and buy enough food for this whole crowd?' For there were about five thousand men there. 'Just tell them to sit down on the ground in groups of about fifty each,' Jesus replied. So the people all sat down. Jesus took the five loaves and two fish, looked up toward heaven, and asked God's blessing on the food. Breaking the loaves into pieces, he kept giving the bread and fish to the disciples to give to the people. They all ate as much as they wanted, and they picked up twelve baskets of leftovers!"
So this is a famous passage out of Luke 9 about the feeding of the 5000. Before this there is the story of the disciples going out and performing all sorts of miracles healing the sick and preaching to the villages in the surrounding area.
Have you noticed that before? They just got back from healing a bunch of sick people and performing miracles in the name of Jesus and yet this is "impossible"? The disciples didn't get it and missed out an an opportunity to be used in more miraculous ways. Jesus handled it and fed them all, but do you think it's any coincidence that there were 12 disciples and 12 baskets left over? Point made.
You realize don't you, that this is what Jesus is saying to us today: "You feed them." It's not metaphorical. It isn't flippant. It's expectant. "You feed them."
Don't miss out on being the conduit for the miraculous. Trust that even though the task is perhaps monumental, God is asking you to do something. If you don't, He'll likely get it done, but you'll miss out.
What is God asking you to do? If He's asking, you're equipped.
