One of the most important things to do and often the hardest thing to remember in this Christian walk is to keep our eyes on God. This is especially true when we are experiencing times of lack. Because we live in a natural world, our eyes are continually drawn to the natural. In other words, we focus on what little we do have and we miss what God can do with it. We know that God is a Spirit and the spirit realm is impossible to see through our natural eyes. One story from the Bible that teaches us to not allow our natural circumstances to dictate the possibilities in life is the story of the boy who shared his 5 loaves and 2 fishes to feed 5,000. And in reality there were many more than 5,000 people because the account in Matthew tells us that those who ate were 5,000 men besides women and children. This miracle was so significant that, besides the resurrection, it is the only other miracle of Jesus that is mentioned in all four Gospels. The people ate as much as they wanted until they were all satisfied! Jesus met this need not just adequately but abundantly. If you have a need that seems impossible to meet with the little you have, give what you have to God. Stand back and allow God to take it and multiply it according to HIs riches, not yours! God has given you access to His resources!
