Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world. John 6:14
I was recently reading this verse in my devotions. It is talking about the miracle of the feeding of the five thousand. I found this verse very applicable to what I have seen here in Peru over the last two months. When you see the vast amount of people that are all around you and need the Gospel it is easy to begin to think that there is no way that these people can be reached. However, reading this verse helped me to realize that we must look to the power of God in this situation. In the Bible, there was an impossible problem and Jesus solved it. If I look at amount of work that needs to be done here in South America it is impossible for us to reach these people with the Gospel. However, I need to remember that God is the one that is working. He is the one that saves. He is the one that will get the work done and I just need to obey Him.
