And that is the reason we have to put it in God`s hands, yes it was Jesus that they gave the five loaves of bread and two fish to, but as you read the text, Jesus did not rely on His own power although He could have, but He was showing us what we must do to take the little we have and turn it into an abundance. He looked up to Heaven and Heaven looked down on him, What Jesus could not do in his humanity, He looked up to the power source and got connected to the one that could do the impossible. When does not enough becomes more than enough? When we give it to God. The people followed Jesus and though they came unseasonably, yet he gave them what they came for, Jesus will meet your every need. He spake unto them of the Kingdom of God. He healed those who had need of healing. And with a pinch( five loaves of bread and two fishes) Jesus fed five thousand men.

Romans 10:9 ‘ That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved. In God`s hands I am not only saved and heaven bound but Jesus said in John 10:10 ‘ I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. If we have little love, give it to Jesus let Him multiply your love. He will turn sadness into joy, put it in God`s hands. It does not take much, Luke 17:6 ‘ if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you could speak to the sycamine tree and would obey you. Just a pinch of faith.
Jesus had faith in God that He would not let Him down, He even thank God before He supply the food, we must give it to God ,the little that we have and thank Him in advance. God did not let His people go hungry and He want let you go hungry, The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
