Staying safe will yield its usual fruit, but leaving the safe region
and stepping out in faith will yield a greater abundance, a greater
harvest, producing a greater miracle. God has given you the power to create wealth

It's your turn to learn from the Master... and create miracles in
your life.


Jesus wanted to feed the people because they were hungry. The
disciples were concerned.


How can anyone fill and satisfy these people with loaves of bread
here in this desolate and uninhabited region?


The disciples looked around them – the situation seemed impossible.
They looked at the crowd, calculated the cost, and gave a final
analysis. In a logical natural sense, it was an impossible situation.


Jesus, however, did not focus on the surrounding circumstance. He
could have said, "You're right, there's way too many people here to
feed, and we can't do that. Sorry folks, that's all for now, hope you
make it back home safely. God go with you and keep you on the way."
No, Jesus asked, "How many loaves have you?" He knew it was food they
needed. So He looked at what the disciples had to match the
need. "Seven," they replied.


Jesus told the people (the multitude) to sit down on the ground. He
took the bread, the 7 loaves, and gave thanks. He broke them and kept
on giving them to His disciples to put before the people, which they
did. Notice here, the words were kept on giving –showing ongoing,
continuing.


Jesus did the same with the few small fish – He praised God and gave
thanks, and asked Him to bless them (to their use). Again, these were
ordered to be set before the people. They ate and were satisfied. The
Bible says they took up seven (large provision) baskets full of the
broken pieces left over. He dismissed the 4,000 of them. Mark 8:1-10.


Let's closely examine the process Jesus used; 4000 people to be fed
in a `desolate and uninhabited region'.


Jesus saw an opportunity to display the glory of God; only 7 loaves
and a few small fish – enough to create a miracle.


Spiritual laws when activated, dominate the natural laws, and shifts
and bends, changes and multiplies them to meet the spiritual/inner
desired results; faith that rises above every situation.


Jesus said that the works He did, we shall do also and even greater
works shall we do because He is going onto the Father.


We need to harness the power God has given us within, and discipline
our minds, and our tongues to control and move mountains in our lives.


The physical evidence shows: large crowd, 7 loaves, and few fish.
Logically/naturally that does not make sense. But Jesus knew who He
was and the power that lies within Him. He changed and transformed,
shifted the natural laws by applying the spiritual and supernatural
laws.


1) He set 1st His intentions – to feed the people.

2) He looked for what they already had that he could use.

3) He took the bread – 7 loaves.

4) Gave thanks – gave is the key word. He first gave to the spiritual
realm/to God – giving thanks, showing gratitude.

5) He then broke the bread and kept on giving.


He satisfied the requirements of both laws – the heavenly and the
earthly.


The heavenly law – praise, gratitude, thanksgiving.

The earthly law – giving to others, taking care of the needy (their
physical, emotional, mental needs.


1) The few fish.

2) He praised God and gave thanks.

3) He asked God to bless them (fish) to their use – for the purpose
He intended- to feed the people.

4) He gave to the people.


Again, He satisfied both laws – the spiritual, then the natural.


The crowds were fed, and satisfied, and the leftovers were gathered
up.


There are situations in our lives that we know we need to change by
stepping out and putting our faith into action, instead of walking by
sight – waiting for external conditions to be favourable.


To step out by faith, however, takes a risk on our part; sometimes,
not knowing the final outcome, or even, the next step until we get to
that point. Following your heart and dreams is to walk by faith and
not by sight. Every step you take would be by faith. You may not be
able to see the whole plan, but as you step out, putting one foot at
a time, the way becomes clearer, your total trust and confidence is
in God, your inner senses become stronger, more keen/sharper.


Staying safe will yield its usual fruit, but leaving the safe region
and stepping out in faith will yield a greater abundance, a greater
harvest, producing a greater miracle. God has given you the power to
create wealth. You have the creative power working in and through
you. You can create exactly what you desire. You create your reality,
by your belief, (your heart), your mind (your thoughts), your words
(what you speak/say). Your mind/thoughts work in sync with your outer
world.


In achieving what we want, we need to follow the necessary steps in
its attainment – the final outcome.


1) Thought – financial, spiritual, emotional.

2) Next step – pull out/collect, all the necessary ingredients –
action plans/steps. These will come as you move along.

3) Put the plan into action – even if you only have one part, the
other parts will come.

4) Reap the benefit.


God uses the small things in our lives to create big things. It took
a small seed to grow into a huge tall tree. It also took a tiny
fertilized egg to form a baby that grows into a great man or woman.


Allow the small seeds in your life to be developed to create change
and produce miracles.
