DIVINE INVOLVEMENT

“Now the Passover, a feast of the Jews, was near. 5 Then Jesus lifted up His eyes, and seeing a great multitude coming toward Him, He said to Philip, “Where shall we buy bread, that these may eat?” 6 But this He said to test him, for He Himself knew what He would do.
7 Philip answered Him, “Two hundred denarii worth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may have a little.”
8 One of His disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, said to Him, 9 “There is a lad here who has five barley loaves and two small fish, but what are they among so many?”
10 Then Jesus said, “Make the people sit down.” Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand. 11 And Jesus took the loaves, and when He had given thanks He distributed them [b]to the disciples, and the disciples to those sitting down; and likewise of the fish, as much as they wanted. (John 6:4-11, NKJV)
Divine involvement simply means participation or association from above.

Involvement means:
To contain or include as a necessary element

To be a matter that concerns somebody

To make somebody take part in an event or connect with something

Understand the following:
There is no minimum or maximum when God is involved—

“Elisha said to her, “What shall I do for you? Tell me, what do you have [of value] in the house?” She said, “Your maidservant has nothing in the house except a [small] jar of [olive] oil.” (2 Kings 4:2, TAB)

“Never forget that small does not mean useless.”

How men categorize little or much is different from how God understands it—
“As Jesus sat facing the temple offering box, he watched how much money people put into it. Many rich people put in large amounts. 42 A poor widow dropped in two small coins, worth less than a cent.
43 He called his disciples and said to them, “I can guarantee this truth: This poor widow has given more than all the others. 44 All of them have given what they could spare. But she, in her poverty, has given everything she had to live on.” (Mark 12:41-44, GWT)
“In any situation that you face, ensure that you seek the mind of God.”
Even if you categorize what you have as little, it is much when God is involved—
“She said, “I solemnly swear, as the Lord your God lives, I didn’t bake any bread. I have one handful of flour in a jar and a little oil in a jug. I’m gathering wood. I’m going to prepare something for myself and my son so that we can eat it and then die.” (1 Kings 17:12, GWT)

“Just give God what you have and stop worrying about what you do not have.”

With God, whatever you have is always enough with a sincere heart—
“Then he found the jawbone of a recently killed donkey. He picked it up and killed 1,000 Philistines with it.16 Then Samson said, “With the jawbone of a donkey, I’ve piled them in heaps! With the jawbone of a donkey, I’ve killed a thousand men!” (Judges 15:15-16, NLT)
“The challenge with man is placing what we have at his disposal”
You need to know how to operate when demand outweighs supply—

“I know how to get along and live humbly [in difficult times], and I also know how to enjoy abundance and live in prosperity. In any and every circumstance I have learned the secret [of facing life], whether well-fed or going hungry, whether having an abundance or being in need. 13 I can do all things [which He has called me to do] through Him who strengthens and empowers me [to fulfill His purpose—I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses me with inner strength and confident peace.]” (Philippians 4:12-13, TAB)

“Never have a crumb mentality but a more than conqueror mentality.”
Sometimes God puts you in a position where you are overwhelmed so that you know your frailties as a human to depend on him—

“And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation[a] of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever. 14 The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.” (Exodus 14:13-14, NKJV)

“Your frailties is a confirmation of your humanity and the superiority of Divinity.”
You have to be complete in Him before you can serve your gifts to another—
“For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; 10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.” (Colossians 2:9-10, NKJV)

“To operate in a deficit, you must realize that though there is a deficit but you are not deficient”
