"These all died in faith, not having received the things promised, but having seen them and greeted them from afar, and having acknowledged that they were strangers and exiles on the earth. For people who speak thus make it clear that they are seeking a homeland. If the had been thinking of that land from which they had gone out, they would have had opportunity to return. But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared for them a city." Hebrews 11:13-16 So many who never got to see the earthly fulfillment of God's promises (though I have zero doubt that their current heavenly position has them regretting that), and who despite the temptation to let that deter their faith, they continued to maintain that earth wasn't their home anyway. They saw their alien status and didn't hide from it. How could they have possibly done such a thing?? Their belief in both God's existence and His kindness convinced them that their permanent home existed too and that because He was good, so was the place He was preparing for them in heaven. It would have been easy to use the escape route of wishing things could go back to how they used to be, but they had LET GOD CHANGE THEIR DESIRES. Their desires had been purified and clarified to wanting something better (Psalm 37:4). They fixed their eyes on the permanent and their desires followed. And the sweetness is that BECAUSE their desires were godly, God delighted to be associated with them and made them a city worthy for His people. Lord, stir our affections toward You today; change what is faulty in our thinking and broken in our hearts so that our desires might be in line with Yours. Amen.

"By faith Sarah herself received power to conceive, even when she was past the age, since she considered him faithful who had promised." Hebrews 11:11 Sarah's faith believed when the worldly odds were against her, when all evidence was to the contrary. She experienced the grace of God through the gift of her son, but that wasn't her only present. Oh no. She got to know her God better, that He was not only some kind of generous Giver but that He was powerful enough to do humanly impossible things. Her faith in this God put her heart in the proper position to receive what He was holding out to her. After years of not hearing the pitter patter of feet in her home or the infectious giggle of one she could call hers, her faith could have turned to bitterness and disdain at her God, but it did not. That's not to say she didn't struggle in it as clearly the situation with Hagar or the laughter at the announcement of the good news shows, but she is COMMENDED here in Hebrews. Perhaps it was because her faith was such that she didn't see her God as holding out ON her but holding on TO her. Oh what a heart-renovating truth! God saw such faith and rewarded the way she clung fast to Him! Yes, Lord, may our hearts cling so tightly to You today, choosing to believe You when our circumstances look bleak. Thank You for being so worthy of all of our trust.

Set your table in John 6:1-15 Bon apetit! APPETIZER: Lots of people were there, near the sea of Galilee, and while Jesus could have ignored them all, He chose to see them. He chose the use the situation He was in as an opportunity to teach his followers a truth nugget that would have eternal implications. He begins with a question in verse 5: “Philip, where are we to buy bread, so that these people may eat?” Or in other words, “how are you going to provide for these people?” Do you find yourself asking that question? I do even as a single woman and have often felt that worldly pressure of “how AM I going to make arrangements for all of my earthly needs?” Philip, the realist, responded from the physical perspective, or what we affectionately and perhaps even WRONGLY call reality: there was no way that even someone whose pockets were oozing money that all of those people would get fed. It was beyond Philip’s comprehension. Andrew, the surveyor, made the effort to assess the actual assets, but only came up with a meager lunch. He must have realized right away how foolish he sounded to even offer up the sparse contributions since he quickly corrected himself with a question (v. 9): “What are they for so many?” Their efforts at solving this ginormous problem proved futile; their failure to provide for the people (including themselves) probably felt frustrating. How often do you attempt to be your own husband and provide for yourself when that is NOT YOUR JOB? MAIN COURSE: Now, Jesus had a plan all along, even while they were trying to figure things out: “He said this [that earlier question in verse 5] to test him, for he himself knew what he would do.” (v. 6) What a wise Teacher Jesus was and is! And what a moment of his divinity and his humanity both on display at once! He graciously revealed his step-by-step plan one instruction at a time to the disciples. In order for the Son of God to show off His ability to provide, the first step was for the people to sit down. They couldn’t persist in meandering about; they would have to pause if they hoped to see His provision first hand. And the disciples were going to have to encourage the people to do so. This was a wise instruction by Jesus because that posture put them in a better position to receive the blessing that was coming their way. They may not have even known that Jesus was going to feed them. But they had to be obedient first. Are you scrambling and scurrying to provide or sitting and seeing the provision of the Lord? Next, Jesus took what He HAD. What an example! He knew that it didn’t ACTUALLY matter how small his resources were because He knew how big His God was/is! Not only was He not intimidated by its small size, but He didn’t let it hinder His thankfulness! Do the 5 loaves and 2 fish that He has given you seem minuscule compared to the size of the provision you are in desperate need for? When was the last time you were thankful for what feels small to you? Thirdly, Jesus “distributed them to those who were seated” (v. 11). He acted in faith and trusted His Father to provide for every single person there. I don’t know if they were seated in rows or not, but imagine the disciples moving those baskets as an usher does the offering at church. Did they wonder each time they sent the basket down the row that the next time they saw it, the basket would be empty ? By the tenth row, did they start to actually believe there would be enough for everyone? How ENDURING is your trust? Is it easily shaken at the first sign of something going “wrong”? Do you really believe that Jesus will totally and completely provide for all your needs? Or have you bought into the lie that your Father is a partial provider? DESSERT: The people’s appetites were totally satisfied to fullness (the only way Jehovah Jireh works is completely), and Jesus gave His last instruction to the disciples: Collect the residue, all those scraps of bread left behind, to ensure that nothing was wasted (v. 12-13). The God of the Bible wrings out His many resources well. Everything belongs to Him and He uses every last drop for His glory and our good. Are you fully satisfied with His provisions? What is one resource that you see Him using and not wasting?
