Matthew 15:32 – The Lord’s Provision

Matthew 15:32
32
Then Jesus called his disciples unto him, and said, I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint in the way.

-The Lord in His mercy shows great compassion for these people who have traveled so far just to hear Him and, in doing so, He gives us all a great spiritual lesson. Even though this verse is talking about physical food, Jesus knows better than anyone that “man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” (Matthew 4:4)  The Christian walk is long and hard and is not to be taken lightly, but just as with the multitude here in Matthew 15, The Lord promises to provide nourishment and sustenance from His Word to every single person who follows Him.  Where there is no bread the people may grow faint, but “where there is no vision, the people perish.” (Proverbs 29:18)
