I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now continued with Me three days and have nothing to eat. And if I send them away hungry to their own houses, they will faint on the way… ~ Mark 8:2-3
Who says Jesus does not know what you are going through or the things you are waiting for to happen? Who says He has forgotten you or that He is not presently working on your case? Sometimes it feels like you are all alone when His help seems far in reaching you, but our text is a reassurance that Jesus cares deeply for you.
Jesus is not an absentee Father or Friend Who bails when the going gets tough for His people. Notice the text says, ‘He felt compassion for the people….’He knew they needed food, but He first fed them the Word which is more important than bread!
He waited to bring them the breakthrough on the third day because He knew they hadn’t exceeded their elastic limit. But it is possible that there were men and women who may have gone home before the 3rd day, before the breakthrough happened. People who faint and throw in the towel before the breakthrough comes.
Don’t give up on God, He cannot withhold good from you, He has prepared the best for you. Let the lies of the devil not tell you otherwise or wear you out. Rather wear the devil out as you wait expectantly & enthusiastically till your breakthrough comes.
Psalm 30:5b, Proverbs 24:10 & James 1:17
Pray for the grace to walk by faith not by sight, to believe the best about God no matter the situation.
Ask and receive strength not to faint or throw in the towel before the breakthrough comes.
