SCRIPTURE READING | JOHN 6: 1-13
When the multitude came to Jesus, He asked Philip where they could buy bread to feed the multitude. The question on how to provide bread was thrown to Philip, but in the end, Philip had no meaningful answer besides his calculations that were eventually discarded by Jesus. The first person who Jesus gave a chance to provide solutions gave an answer that was not meaningful.
Notice that when Philip gave his calculations, Andrew showed up to tell Jesus about the lad who had five loaves and two fishes. Andrew was not asked any question, but when Philip’s answer failed, he rose to the occasion and provided an answer that saved the day. Philip was asked a question he could not answer, and Andrew volunteered an answer.
Friend, when the ‘Philips’ of this world do not give you reasonable answers, God will raise an ‘Andrew’ for you. When life throws questions at you and you have no answer, God will raise people who will give you strategic information that will move you forward; God will bring insightful men your way, and they will give you information you may not have asked them for. God will bring you men whose ideas will move you forward.
Andrew even wondered if the five loaves and two fishes would make any difference. He didn’t even have enough confidence in the information he gave, but it was insightful information. God says, the ‘Andrews’ of this world may not even know the worth of the information they are giving to you, but they will give it anyway. Their information will help you hit your target.
Your ‘Andrew’ may not know why he will give you strategic information, he may not know why he will offer help you did not ask for, your ‘Andrew’ may not know why he will take your matters personal, but God will raise you that ‘Andrew’ that will help your destiny.
DECLARE WITH ME
Helpful and insightful men with strategic information are coming my way, in Jesus’ name!
