Psalm 119:89-176;
1 Corinthians 8


"Then Jesus lifted up His eyes, and seeing a great multitude coming toward Him, He said to Philip, "Where shall we buy bread, that these may eat?" But this He said to test him, for He Himself knew what He would do. Philip answered Him, "Two hundred denarii worth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may have a little." One of His disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, said to Him, "There is a lad here who has five barley loaves and two small fish, but what are they among so many?" Then Jesus said, "Make the people sit down." Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand. And Jesus took the loaves, and when He had given thanks He distributed them to the disciples, and the disciples to those sitting down; and likewise of the fish, as much as they wanted. So when they were filled, He said to His disciples, "Gather up the fragments that remain, so that nothing is lost." Therefore they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves which were left over by those who had eaten"
John 6:5-13 (NKJV)

We often forget that this young lad could have refused to share his meal; after all, how was he to know that his five loaves and two fish would be miraculously multiplied to feed eighteen thousand people?

The young lad sowed his lunch as a seed so that thousands would be well fed. He may not have fully understood the nature of the upcoming miracle, but he obviously had over time come to develop great faith in the supernatural abilities of Jesus.

His five loaves and two fish were the miracle seed that God needed to do this miracle. Every provisional miracle requires a God-ward side and a man-ward side; man provides the seed, while God provides the miracle multiplication and creation factor.

Ask God to reveal to you the nature and quantity of your miracle seed, and then sow it in faith and great expectation. Remember that "seedtime and harvest shall never cease"; if you sow in faith then you'll surely reap your harvest of miracles. Amen!

Prayer & Confession of faith
My God is able to multiple my seed! As I sow in faith and great expectation, I know I will reap a great harvest of miracles. Hallelujah!
