Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 83

83. He asked this to test him for he already had in mind what he was going to do (John 6:6).

When Jesus asked Philip where bread could be bought to feed the multitude before them, he already knew. He could already picture stunned expressions, baskets on top of baskets, the strong smell of abundant fish in the afternoon sun and bread crumbs littering the ground. He knew, but Philip didn’t. All Philip had as a resource was himself, and the available answers weren’t sufficient. Sometimes Jesus tests us in this same way. He allows an overwhelming circumstance so that he can ask, “What can we do?” Truth is, when God is in the “we,” there’s nothing that’s impossible.
