Your debts and seven loaves of bread

IF YOU have debt problems, think of seven loaves of bread and two fish. A crowd of 5,000 men, their wives and children, making the crowd about 15,000 to 20,000, had been listening to Jesus talk in the wilderness. On the third day, the disciples of Jesus told Him that He should send the crowd home. But Jesus was concerned that the crowd would be hungry because they had been following Him for three days and had finished all the food that they had brought with them. The disciples replied that there were only seven loaves of bread and two fish. Jesus then held up the loaves and fish towards heaven and thanked God for His blessing. Thereafter He broke the bread and the fish and told the disciples to put them in twelve baskets and to distribute the bread and fish to feed a crowd of 20,000 men, women and children.
How can you feed a crowd of 20,000 with seven loaves of bread and two fish? The disciples must have thought that Jesus had lost His mind. Nevertheless, they had faith in Him being divine and did as they were told. Lo and behold, the baskets were continuously replenished with bread and fish until each and every one of the 20,000 were fully fed! This event shows that Jesus loves us so that He does not want us to be hungry, and, if we rely on Him, we rely on the infinite source of abundance. His disciples had asked Him to send the crowd home. It was Jesus who said that they must be hungry and should be fed, instead of being sent home hungry. It was also Jesus who said that “A thief comes to steal, kill and destroy. But I have come that they may live and live life abundantly.”
If you are worried that your debts destroy you financially, pray to Jesus because He cares for you and loves you, hence He will surely provide a solution to free you from debt enabling you to be productive again. He cares that the crowd of 20,000 is hungry and should be fed. Thus, He must also care that you will be free of your debt problems because they prevent you from living life abundantly.
And He has promised us that He has come so that we may live and live life abundantly! The solution to your debt problems may come in the form of Federal law that provides you with a fresh start in life with a Chapter 7 discharge of your debts. If you qualify, you can wipe out all of your debts while keeping all of your assets subject to exemption laws. For instance, if you owe $100,000 of credit card debt, and another $200,000 of business debts, you can wipe out all $300,000 while keeping your house, your cars, your furniture, your retirement and bank accounts. You may even be able to continue operating your business depending upon certain conditions. Your income remains intact. Thus, you continue doing what you do to make money, keep most if not all your assets, but you are free of all your debts. In a Chapter 13, you get rid of the 2nd trust deed on your residence assuming the current market value of your house does not exceed the balance of your first trust deed.
The miracle of the multiplication of seven loaves of bread and two fish is only one of the many miracles that Jesus performed to prove that He is the Son of the one true God. Aside from this, Jesus walked on water while the boat of His disciples were being tossed by stormy waves, changed water into wine in a marriage celebration in Cana, Galilee, resurrected the dead child of the widow of Nain , resurrected His friend Lazarus who had been dead for several days, healed the cripple at Bethesda. And He resurrected three days after his death on the cross! He is truly the Son of God!
