Bible Study & Devotional Day 56
Written By Torrie Slaughter
🔴 Food Desert
Guiding Scripture: Mark 8:2, “I have compassion for these people; they have already been with me three days and have nothing to eat.”
In Mark 8:1-10, Jesus demonstrates once again that He is a new Moses. Providing food in an isolated place and feeding over 4,000 people is reminiscent of the Israelites wilderness season. We’ve read Exodus and know the many ups and downs the Israelites faced spiritually, physically, and mentally. Vacillating between doubt, fear, and surrender, we watched as they made decisions that would compromise the covenant.
What Did We Learn?
- God’s Word is everlasting, and He is a God of order.
- Action speaks louder than words, and we watch as Jesus continues to feed those who have faith.
- The disciples took inventory and brought what was available to our Lord.
No matter where we are or what we experience, Christ provides. What may seem like a significant problem only requires obedience. Follow God, and He will provide. When we experience chaos, confusion, doubt, or feel overwhelmed, ask yourself: who do I believe Jesus to be? Whose leadership am I following?
