God calls us to rely on Him and His provision, not our own. In these verses Jesus challenges Phillip to realize his calling to rely on God, not himself.
John 6:5-6 NLT
“Jesus soon saw a huge crowd of people coming to look for him. Turning to Philip, he asked, â€œWhere can we buy bread to feed all these people?â€ He was testing Philip, for he already knew what he was going to do.”
