A REMOTE LOCATION                                                          Mark 8:1-13

And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19)

Tristan do Cunha Island is famous for its location. It is the most remote inhabited island in the world, thanks to the 288 people who call it home. The island is located in the South  Atlantic Ocean, 1,750miles from South Africa – the nearest mainland. Anyone who might want to drop by for a visit has to travel by boat for seven days because the island has not airstrip.

Jesus and His followers were in a some what remote area when He produced a miraculous meal for thousands of hungry people. Before His miracle, Jesus said to His disciples (“These people”) have already been with me three days and have nothing to eat. If I send them home hungry, they will collapse on the way” (Mark 8:2-3) Because they were in the countryside where food was not readily available, they had to depend fully, they had nowhere else to turn.

Sometimes God allows us to end up in desolate places where He is our only source of help. His ability for provide for us not necessarily linked with our circumstances. If He created the entire world out of nothing. God can certainly meet our needs – whatever our circumstances – out of the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19)

PRAYER LINE: Dear God, thank You for all that You have provided through, Your Son, Jesus Christ. Your Son Jesus Christ You know what my needs are. Please reassure me of Your care and power.


We can trust God to do what we cannot do.
