John 6:5-6 Lifting up His eyes, then, and seeing that a large crowd was coming towards Him, Jesus said to Philip, "Where are we to buy bread, so that these people may eat?" He said this to test him, for He Himself knew what He would do.
Do you ever feel tested by God - that He asks you what to do, when He already knows what He is going to do or what is coming next? It happens. God wants to know if we will try and solve the problem ourselves or whether we will turn to Him. Strictly speaking of course, He already knows the answer to that as well, but we need to learn what to do - this is a teaching opportunity for us to acquire the habit of asking Jesus first before stepping out on our own.
