The miracle I need

Yesterday, we talked about the confidence that Christ had, the confidence that we learn from Him as we pray.  Maybe it isn’t a prayer story (per se) but John 6 is the same lesson.  Phillip is playing Eyore.  “Here is a lad with 5 loaves and 2 fish, but what good is that with this huge crowd?”  He is not hopeful, but it does not take him long to realize his mistake.  By focusing on the limitations rather than on the Lord, by ignoring Jesus as the main factor in any equation, Phillip makes himself a captive to a fear.  I wonder whether I see this mistake when I am making it.  Today, as I pray “For thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory”, I will look long at the Lord rather than at my problems.  Maybe that is always the miracle I need. Et tu?
