They all ate and were satisfied.

"He fed them with the finest wheat
and satisfied them with honey from the rock."  (Cf.  Psalm 81 (80): 17 RM)

"For I pass on to you what I received from the Lord himself. On the night when he was betrayed, the Lord Jesus took some bread  and gave thanks to God for it. Then he broke it in pieces and said, “This is my body, which is given for you.  Do this in remembrance of me.”

In the same way, he took the cup of wine after supper, saying,“This cup is the new covenant between God and his people — an agreement confirmed with my blood. Do this in remembrance of me as often as you drink it.”  (1 Corinthians 11: 23 - 25 NLT)

I am the living bread that came down from heaven.  Whoever eats this bread will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.”  (John 6: 51 NIV)

When you ask God for a favor, ask Big. Ask with bold and confident expectation.

 "Jesus replied, “Have faith in God [constantly].   I assure you and most solemnly say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea!’ and  does not doubt in his heart[in God’s unlimited power], but believes that what he says is going to take place, it will be done for him [in accordance with God’s will]."

"For this reason I am telling you, whatever things you ask for in prayer [in accordance with God’s will], believe [with confident trust] that you have received them, and they will be given  to you."  (Mark 11: 22 - 24 AMP)

Ask Jesus for Mercy. Be Merciful. Completely trust Jesus for Mercy.

Confidently trust Jesus for Mercy.
“Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Mark 10: 47 NIV)

"Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”  (Mark 10: 48 NIV)

“What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him.
The blind man (Bartimaeus) said, “Rabbi, I want to see.”

“Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.”  Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road."
(Mark 10 : 51 - 52 NIV)

By redeeming us, Jesus has strengthened the bars of our gates and granted peace in our borders.

"Realizing that you were ransomed from your futile conduct, handed on by your ancestors, not with perishable things like silver or gold   but with the precious blood of Christ as of a spotless unblemished lamb."  (1 Peter: 18-19 NABRE)

"Since you have purified yourselves by obedience to the truth for sincere mutual love, love one another intensely from a [pure] heart."  (1 Peter 1: 22 NABRE)

I will sing to the Lord who has been bountiful with me.

"Then Peter began to speak up. “We’ve given up everything to follow you,” he said.

“Yes,” Jesus replied, “and I assure you that everyone who has given up house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or property, for my sake and for the Good News,   will receive now in return a hundred times as many houses, brothers, sisters, mothers, children, and property — along with persecution. And in the world to come that person will have eternal life." (Mark 10: 28 -  30 NLT)

Is money threatening the salvation of your soul?

"Looking at him, Jesus felt a love (high regard, compassion) for him, and He said to him, “You lack one thing: go and sell all your property and give [the money]to the poor, and you will have[abundant] treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me[becoming My disciple, believing and trusting in Me and walking the same path of life that I walk].”

But the man was saddened at Jesus’ words, and he left grieving, because he owned much property and had many possessions [which he treasured more than his relationship with God]."  (Mark 10: 21 -  22 AMP)
