Can you imagine the faces on the disciples when Jesus told them that they were going to feed the 5,000 people? Especially when He wanted to go on with the idea when they only had five loaves of bread and two fish. That's just crazy! It seemed like an impossible thing to do - in fact, it still seems impossible. Yet, after Jesus blessed the food they fed all 5,000 people and had left overs! They didn't just have left overs, they had 12 baskets of left-overs. It was almost as if Jesus made sure that each one of the 12 disciples would have to pick up and carry the basket of left-overs back to Jesus. Could you imagine bringing a basket of left-overs back to Jesus after telling Him that they would not be able to feed the people?
I cannot explain how Jesus did that, but I believe He did it. This is because faith requires me to set aside what I've experienced and what I can do and accept that God can do whatever He wants. I believe that He created the world so that means that I have to believe that if He wants to do something new that we've never seen, He can. In fact, Jesus addressed this issue with someone who was wondering if Jesus could do something that would require a miracle. Mark 10:27 gives us Jesus' reply, "Jesus looked at them and said, 'With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.'" All things are possible with God!
What seems impossible for you? Do you believe that all things are possible with God?
