Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
But He said to them, “You give them something to eat.” – Lk. 9:13
The disciples were panicked. They looked to Jesus for a miracle. Thousands of people have gathered to hear Jesus preach, and they were hungry. So the disciples asked Jesus for help. But Jesus gave them a surprise answer: “You give them something to eat.”
You see, Jesus had already given the disciples His power and authority:
Then He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority… – Lk. 9:1a
So they didn’t need to come to Him again and ask for the same miracle-working power and authority He had already given them! They didn’t need to come to Jesus and ask for help doing what He already told them to do. They just needed to trust that the same Holy Spirit who moved through Jesus would move through them.
Stop asking God to do things He already delegated to you. Heal the sick (Matt. 10:8). Preach the Gospel! Declare blessing over your finances. Proclaim healing over our country and the world. You have the power and authority of Jesus! Are you going to use it?
Father, thank You for trusting me with power and authority. I want to glorify and honor You in everything I do! Help me to step out in boldness like never before, in Jesus’ name!
