Be Careful Who You’re Counting Out

Be Careful Who You’re Counting Out

by Steven Furtick

 

 

God fed the multitude through the meager resources of a child who wasn’t even included in the original count.

The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children.
-Matthew 14:21

Jesus didn’t feed 5,000 people with five loaves and two fish.

He fed a crowd of people that numbered 5,000-besides women and children.

But in those days, the women and children typically weren’t part of the headcount. Therefore, we typically refer to this incident as the feeding of the 5,000. Actually, it was more like 20,000, at the very least.

With this in mind, isn’t it remarkable that the ingredients for the miracle came from a little boy?

Another of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, spoke up, “Here is a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they go among so many?”

-John 6:8-9

God fed the multitude through the meager resources of a child who wasn’t even included in the original count.

God likes the unlikely.

When He looks for someone to use, He often looks for the under looked.

He calls for the youngest son, who wasn’t even worth bringing in from the sheep field from the perspective of his father and older brothers.

Be careful before you count someone out.

They might be the channel of your miracle.

And if you’ve been counted out lately, don’t worry.

God often hides His provision in places where no one else would know to look for them.

Man looks at the outward appearance. But God looks at the heart…
