Look Beyond What’s In Your Hand

41Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to his disciples to distribute to the people. He also divided the two fish among them all. 42 They all ate and were satisfied, 43 and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces of bread and fish. 44 The number of the men who had eaten was five thousand” (Mark 6:41-44).

If you own a business, don’t imagine the business struggling and failing even if it is. I’m not denying that things happen in the natural. But go beyond that, like Jesus did. Lift up your eyes, look beyond what’s in your hand and see it the way God wants it to be. Discover what God can do in you and through you. Look to the all-sufficient God. Cast all your cares on Him and believe that He can take care of them. Take the word of God and see yourself succeeding in that business, see yourself prosper, see yourself healed, see your marriage working, see your children transformed.

Jesus took what was meant for one person and used it to feed the many. God gives us revelation to broaden our view of who He is. We need to be totally dependent on God. We need to look to the all-sufficient God. We need to depend on His word and promises. His word is sufficient. Whatever you are going through, God wants you to come to His throne of Grace and open your heart to Him. He will lead you and guide you. “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path” (Ps 119:105). Our steps are ordered by the Lord. God wants to order your steps right now.  Don’t bring logic into the situation. He wants you to trust Him. He wants you to move in faith.
