Matthew, Mark, Luke & John: Session 21

            In this study, we cover 2 scenarios that give us a whole lot to think about concerning how to overcome impossible and undesirable situations in our life. The first scenario involves Jesus feeding 5000 people with 2 fish and 5 loaves of bread. The other scenario involves Jesus walking on water and Peter joining him! While these are obvious acts of a supernatural God, we often overlook what Jesus required of his disciples in order for these miracles to take place. Jesus required 2 things: (1) that his disciples follow his directions whether they made sense to them or not and (2) that they focus on HIM and HIS abilities, rather than focusing on the circumstances. Simply doing those 2 things is what led to 5000 people being fed with 2 fish and 5 loaves and it's also what led to Peter walking on water in the midst of a storm. The formula is very simple and yet it's easy to forget amidst all our many distractions. If your needs are greater than your resources, or if you're experiencing storms in your life that you'd like to rise above, then you might want to give this podcast a listen.
