When Jesus heard of it, he departed thence by ship [boat] into a desert place apart: and when the people had heard thereof, they followed him on foot out of the cities. And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick. And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past [late]; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals [food]. But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them [something] to eat. And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes. He said, Bring them hither [here] to me. And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake [broke], and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples [gave] to the multitude. And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full. And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children. Mat 14:13-21 Even though it may not seem like you have enough resources or skill to help people out or do some good thing, give what you have, believing the Lord will help, and He will bless the work, making it successful in it's purpose.

And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore [why] didst thou doubt? And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased. Mat 14:25-32 Do not doubt you will make it, or waver in faith while the Lord is helping you continually overcome things beyond your abilities. If you do doubt, and then call out to the Lord, He will immediately help you.

And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way. Mat 20:4 He expects us to put our beliefs to work now and trust him to reward us later with whatever is right.  It's usually not much later that the rewards start appearing.
