Just Sit Down and Let Jesus Do His Thing!

"Have the people sit down" (John 10:6)

This was Jesus' response to the disciples doubts about Christ's ability to feed the crowd.

Jesus had told his disciples to find enough food for more than 5,000 people who had come to hear Him teach. Andrew had found a small amount of food, but wasn't sure it would do much. The disciple's were stressed that they could never find enough food to feed everyone.

Jesus' simple response to have everyone sit down was all that was necessary.


Sometimes, we're so busy running around that we don't allow Jesus to do his thing. We are, like the disciples, doing everything we can do to "make things happen", but we don't realize that things will happen when HE MAKES THEM HAPPEN!

This command is a good reminder to us that it is good sometimes to simply sit and be patient.

Take some time to just sit down and allow God to do His work in you.
