  • As a matter of fact,Deuteronomy said:
  • 00:00:49.929 --> 00:00:50.763

  • 00:01:11.951 --> 00:01:13.286
  • Shows a tremendous hungerfor the Word of God.
  • 00:01:13.286 --> 00:01:14.120

  • God will alwayssupply your needs.
  • 00:01:17.490 --> 00:01:20.693
  • supply your needs.And the Bible said that when
  • 00:01:20.693 --> 00:01:22.462
  • And the Bible said that whenthe disciples told them
  • 00:01:22.462 --> 00:01:23.596
  • the disciples told themhow they weak they were,
  • 00:01:23.596 --> 00:01:24.664
  • how they weak they were,how hungry they were,
  • 00:01:24.664 --> 00:01:25.899
  • how hungry they were,the people hadn't eaten,

  • the people hadn't eaten,and they were concerned.
  • 00:01:27.300 --> 00:01:28.334

  • 00:01:28.334 --> 00:01:29.969
  • Jesus said:"They need not depart."
  • 00:01:29.969 --> 00:01:31.404
  • "They need not depart."They don't have to leave Me.

  • They came for the Word,but I can give them Word
  • 00:01:34.040 --> 00:01:35.642
  • but I can give them Wordand bread.
  • 00:01:35.642 --> 00:01:36.910
  • and bread.And Jesus said to them,
  • 00:01:36.910 --> 00:01:38.545
  • And Jesus said to them,"What do you have?"
  • 00:01:38.545 --> 00:01:39.913
  • "What do you have?"Point number one,

  • the miracle always beginswith what you have.
  • 00:01:44.584 --> 00:01:45.552

  • 00:01:45.552 --> 00:01:46.920
  • When you recognizewhat you have,
  • 00:01:46.920 --> 00:01:50.089
  • what you have,then God can multiply it.
  • 00:01:50.089 --> 00:01:52.759
  • then God can multiply it.It's not in what you don't have,
  • 00:01:52.759 --> 00:01:54.627
  • It's not in what you don't have,you have to recognize --
  • 00:01:54.627 --> 00:01:55.562
  • you have to recognize --notice the pattern
  • 00:01:55.562 --> 00:01:57.230
  • notice the patternthat Jesus is showing us.
  • 00:01:57.230 --> 00:01:59.098
  • that Jesus is showing us.He's saying, "The first key
  • 00:01:59.098 --> 00:02:01.201
  • He's saying, "The first keyto receiving My provision
  • 00:02:01.201 --> 00:02:02.068

  • or facing,is recognize what you have."
  • 00:02:09.242 --> 00:02:10.677
  • is recognize what you have."Because when you recognize
  • 00:02:10.677 --> 00:02:11.878
  • Because when you recognizewhat you have,
  • 00:02:11.878 --> 00:02:14.414

  • then God can multiply it.And the Bible said that it's
  • 00:02:15.848 --> 00:02:18.451
  • And the Bible said that it'sironic that they did not count
  • 00:02:18.451 --> 00:02:20.420
  • ironic that they did not countthe women and the children.
  • 00:02:20.420 --> 00:02:22.155
  • the women and the children.I think it's very ironic,
  • 00:02:22.155 --> 00:02:24.123
  • I think it's very ironic,because the one that they didn't
  • 00:02:24.123 --> 00:02:26.726
  • because the one that they didn'tcount was the one that God used
  • 00:02:26.726 --> 00:02:27.927
  • count was the one that God usedto bring the miracle.
  • 00:02:27.927 --> 00:02:30.496
  • to bring the miracle.No -- they counted 5.000 men,
  • 00:02:30.496 --> 00:02:31.864
  • No -- they counted 5.000 men,and in their mind, they said,
  • 00:02:31.864 --> 00:02:32.932
  • and in their mind, they said,"The women and the children
  • 00:02:32.932 --> 00:02:34.567
  • "The women and the childrendon't count."
  • 00:02:34.567 --> 00:02:35.768
  • don't count."But notice something about
  • 00:02:35.768 --> 00:02:36.569
  • But notice something aboutyour God.
  • 00:02:36.569 --> 00:02:38.137

  • 00:03:47.206 --> 00:03:48.608
  • Jesus then givesa strange command,

  • Do you know how longthat would take?

  • 00:04:26.579 --> 00:04:30.650
  • Because sometimes,the best miracles take time.

  • the best miracles take time.Sometimes, we need to understand
  • 00:04:33.019 --> 00:04:34.587
  • Sometimes, we need to understandthat God's best miracles
  • 00:04:34.587 --> 00:04:36.589
  • that God's best miraclesare not driven by need
  • 00:04:36.589 --> 00:04:39.192
  • are not driven by needor necessity or hunger.

  • That's why the Bible said:"You have need of patience,

  • 00:12:39.071 --> 00:12:41.874
  • Now, here's a big point aboutthis little lesson.
  • 00:12:41.874 --> 00:12:47.279
  • this little lesson.He -- God is a good Chef,

  • He -- God is a good Chef,and He's very good at math.

  • 00:12:56.922 --> 00:12:58.224
  • And, when He cookedfor the children of Israel,
  • 00:12:58.224 --> 00:13:00.659
  • for the children of Israel,and He did, He spread a table

  • the Bible said, for 40 years,they had nothing to eat
  • 00:13:04.430 --> 00:13:07.032
  • they had nothing to eatexcept what God personally
  • 00:13:07.032 --> 00:13:08.534
  • except what God personallyprovided for them
  • 00:13:08.534 --> 00:13:10.269
  • provided for themfrom the bakeries of Heaven.
  • 00:13:10.269 --> 00:13:12.905
  • from the bakeries of Heaven.Every morning, when they got up,
  • 00:13:12.905 --> 00:13:14.473
  • Every morning, when they got up,there was something called manna

  • how many people are comin'and they know how much stuff
  • 00:13:23.749 --> 00:13:26.252
  • and they know how much stuffthey're gonna need.

  • 00:13:29.788 --> 00:13:30.923
  • So, when he would provide foodfor the children of Israel
  • 00:13:30.923 --> 00:13:31.724
  • for the children of Israelin the wilderness,
  • 00:13:31.724 --> 00:13:32.424
  • in the wilderness,he would give them
  • 00:13:32.424 --> 00:13:35.728
  • he would give themjust enough to eat that day.
  • 00:13:35.728 --> 00:13:37.429

  • No leftovers.None.
  • 00:13:38.464 --> 00:13:39.765
  • None.Matter of fact, if they didn't
  • 00:13:39.765 --> 00:13:41.600
  • Matter of fact, if they didn'teat all their meal for that day,
  • 00:13:41.600 --> 00:13:42.568
  • eat all their meal for that day,they couldn't store it up

  • they couldn't store it upfor the next day.
  • 00:13:43.502 --> 00:13:44.536
  • for the next day.If they did, the Bible said,
  • 00:13:44.536 --> 00:13:45.537
  • If they did, the Bible said,it had worms in it,
  • 00:13:45.537 --> 00:13:46.906
  • it had worms in it,because God was teachin' 'em
  • 00:13:46.906 --> 00:13:47.740

  • 00:13:50.276 --> 00:13:52.211
  • on Him every day of your life.So, here's my point:
  • 00:13:52.211 --> 00:13:53.412
  • So, here's my point:When God cooks,
  • 00:13:53.412 --> 00:13:54.313
  • When God cooks,He knows how many people
  • 00:13:54.313 --> 00:13:55.781
  • He knows how many peoplehe's cooking for.
  • 00:13:55.781 --> 00:13:57.583
  • he's cooking for.And He knew, if He wanted to,
  • 00:13:57.583 --> 00:13:59.084
  • And He knew, if He wanted to,He could've just supplied
  • 00:13:59.084 --> 00:14:01.253
  • He could've just suppliedexactly enough meal
  • 00:14:01.253 --> 00:14:03.088
  • exactly enough mealfor the 5.000 men,
  • 00:14:03.088 --> 00:14:04.356
  • for the 5.000 men,and He knew how many women,
  • 00:14:04.356 --> 00:14:05.724
  • and He knew how many women,He knew how many children,
  • 00:14:05.724 --> 00:14:06.859
  • He knew how many children,and it would've been enough
  • 00:14:06.859 --> 00:14:10.362
  • and it would've been enoughto feed everybody, and stopped.
  • 00:14:10.362 --> 00:14:13.399
  • to feed everybody, and stopped.He knew the exact number,
  • 00:14:13.399 --> 00:14:15.367
  • He knew the exact number,but He purposely designed it
  • 00:14:15.367 --> 00:14:16.302
  • but He purposely designed itso that there would be
  • 00:14:16.302 --> 00:14:18.537
  • so that there would beleftovers.
  • 00:14:18.537 --> 00:14:20.839
  • leftovers.Jesus could have been precise,
  • 00:14:20.839 --> 00:14:22.775
  • Jesus could have been precise,He could've stopped
  • 00:14:22.775 --> 00:14:24.710
  • He could've stoppedon the last person.
  • 00:14:24.710 --> 00:14:26.011
  • on the last person.In His mind, He knew when
  • 00:14:26.011 --> 00:14:26.779
  • In His mind, He knew whenHe got to the last person
  • 00:14:26.779 --> 00:14:28.514
  • He got to the last personwho needed to be served a meal,
  • 00:14:28.514 --> 00:14:29.448
  • who needed to be served a meal,and He could've stopped,
  • 00:14:29.448 --> 00:14:31.116
  • and He could've stopped,but He kept on breaking off
  • 00:14:31.116 --> 00:14:33.652
  • but He kept on breaking offmore than was needed.
  • 00:14:33.652 --> 00:14:38.257
  • more than was needed.He chose to give them overflow.
  • 00:14:38.257 --> 00:14:39.625
  • He chose to give them overflow.Don't you ever let people
  • 00:14:39.625 --> 00:14:41.727
  • Don't you ever let peopletell you that God
  • 00:14:41.727 --> 00:14:45.130
  • tell you that Godjust wants to give you enough.
  • 00:14:45.130 --> 00:14:46.432
  • just wants to give you enough.God doesn't just want

  • God doesn't just wantto give you enough.
  • 00:14:48.467 --> 00:14:49.868
  • to give you enough.That sounds real religious,
  • 00:14:49.868 --> 00:14:51.103
  • That sounds real religious,when people say that.
  • 00:14:51.103 --> 00:14:53.739
  • when people say that.But the truth is, God does not
  • 00:14:53.739 --> 00:14:55.908
  • But the truth is, God does not-- His name is El Shaddai,
  • 00:14:55.908 --> 00:14:57.443
  • -- His name is El Shaddai,not El Cheapo.
  • 00:14:57.443 --> 00:14:59.545
  • not El Cheapo.El Shaddai means in Hebrew
  • 00:14:59.545 --> 00:15:02.481
  • El Shaddai means in Hebrewmore than enough.
  • 00:15:02.481 --> 00:15:04.383

  • A God whose nameis more than enough
  • 00:15:06.018 --> 00:15:08.721
  • is more than enoughwill never stop at enough.
  • 00:15:08.721 --> 00:15:10.022
  • will never stop at enough.David said,
  • 00:15:10.022 --> 00:15:12.725
  • David said,"My cup runneth over."
  • 00:15:12.725 --> 00:15:15.094
  • "My cup runneth over."He is a God of overflow.
  • 00:15:15.094 --> 00:15:16.328
  • He is a God of overflow.He doesn't just want
  • 00:15:16.328 --> 00:15:18.197
  • He doesn't just wantto give you enough.
  • 00:15:18.197 --> 00:15:19.865

  • He wants to give youmore than enough.
  • 00:15:22.134 --> 00:15:24.103
