according to the Word

But his servant said, “How can I set this before a hundred men?” So he repeated, “Give them to the men, that they may eat, for thus says the Lord, ‘They shall eat and have some left.’” So he set it before them. And they ate and had some left, according to the word of the Lord.
2 Kings 4:43-44

A prophet's servant
sent to feed
one hundred hungry men
who came in need
to the prophet's den

had twenty small loaves
of barley bread
some roasted grain
all he had on hand
could never feed all of them

But Elisha said
the men would eat
to the fill
and there would be
an excess still

God's Word decreed
the food was more
portions than one hundred men
and it was so
as God said

Doubt sees circumstances
insists there is no way
a prayer could be heard
or trust what God would say
yet He saves us according to His Word

Faith believes God
Who does so much
for His servant's faith
His providing touch
will keep them in His way
