Shortly after Jesus feeds the 4,000, his disciples start complaining.  Their complaints of hunger aren’t received well by Jesus, who has already told them that He is the bread of life and has already shown multiple times how he is capable of miraculously feeding those who ask.  Our ability to trust God depends on us remembering the miracles He has already performed.

(Mk 8:1-10, 14-21, Jer 5:21, Eze 12:2, John 6, Exodus 16, Matt 6, John 14, John 16)

(Luke 5:33-38, Isaiah 43:9)
