And the day began to wear away; and the twelve came, and said unto him, Send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages and country round about, and lodge, and get provisions: for we are here in a desert place. But he said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they said, We have no more than five loaves and two fishes; except we should go and buy food for all this people. For they were about five thousand men. And he said unto his disciples, Make them sit down in companies, about fifty each. And they did so, and made them all sit down. And he took the five loaves and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed them, and brake; and gave to the disciples to set before the multitude. And they ate, and were all filled: and there was taken up that which remained over to them of broken pieces, twelve baskets. (Luke 9:12-17 ASV)
When you feel weary and worn, where do you turn?
How easy is it for you to look to what you have given up for Lent for satisfaction? Does what you have given up help you rely more on Jesus or look to him in any way?
How have you seen God meeting you in your places of want and need?
Have you experienced a “desert” place during your Lent period?
How did The Lord meet you there?
