In Abundance

John 6:11-12 “…And they all ate as much as they wanted. After everyone was full, Jesus told his disciples, “Now gather the leftovers, so that nothing is wasted.” (emphasis added).

Every time Jesus provided, He always provided more than enough. They had more than enough. We need to shred the scarcity mentality, even in our homes. There are homes where it is ‘Daddy’ that rations what everybody eats. Read the rest of this entry

Supernatural Provision

Matt.17:27However, we don’t want to offend them, so go down to the lake and throw in a line. Open the mouth of the first fish you catch, and you will find a large silver coin. Take it and pay the tax for both of us.”

Have you ever experienced supernatural provision? Yes, God wants us to work, to invest, and God wants us to save. We have done several teachings on God’s heart for work and for our finances – earn some, save some, invest some, spend less, no loss, give more, and faith it. Yes, God wants us to be responsible, to generate an income, to sustain our life income, and to multiply our streams of income. However, there comes a time in every life where you need divine intervention, when you need a miracle. God has made it clear that this is going to happen, and He will come through for us. Please read John 6:1-15.

John 6:1After this, Jesus crossed over to the far side of the Sea of Galilee, also known as the Sea of Tiberias.” This is so important because John was writing to the people in Ephesus and they knew this sea as the Sea of Tiberias, not the Sea of Galilee. It is so important that as people, we speak the language that our community understands. Otherwise, they will see Christians as strange. Jesus had just finished healing the man that was lame for thirty-eight years and He crossed the Sea of Galilee to have some time away with His disciples. But the Bible said that the people followed Him. When Jesus was crossing the Sea of Galilee, thousands of people were going across Jordan following Jesus. Jesus obviously got to Galilee first and sat down with His disciples, but as He lifted His eyes, He saw five thousand people approaching and the story kicks off from there.

This miracle is recorded as the feeding of five thousand men, not counting women and children. If there are five thousand men, we can expect that there will be between seven and ten thousand women, and between two and three thousand children. There were about fifteen to twenty thousand people coming to Jesus. There are many different miracles distributed across the four gospels but the feeding of the five thousand men was the only one recorded by all four gospels and that is so significant. This miracle is recorded in Matt.14:13-21, Mark 6:30-44, Luke 9:10-17, and John 6:1-15. Please read all the different accounts, you will be amazed at the peculiarities of the writers and what they focused on.

For instance, John did not talk about Jesus distributing the bread to the twelve and the twelve distributing it to the people. John skipped that because of what he was focusing on. Matthew detailed how Jesus broke the bread and distributed to the twelve, but Matthew did not state that Jesus did this for the bread and then the fish. Matthew reported it as though Jesus did both together. But John said He distributed the bread first, then the fish. The purpose of Bible study is for you to get into the Word of God yourself.

Prayer: Father, I ask that according to Your Word, please supply all my needs according to Your riches in glory, in Jesus Name. Amen!

Nothing Except

John 3:27 “John replied, “A man can receive nothing [he can claim nothing at all] unless it has been granted to him from heaven [for there is no other source than the sovereign will of God].” (AMP, emphasis added).

A man [born again or not] can receive nothing, except it is given to him from above. Yesterday we looked at the first two implications of this statement. The first implication is, Look To God And God Alone As Your Source. Read the rest of this entry

In His Name, V

Zech. 12:10 And I pledge that I will pour out a spirit of grace and pleas for mercy on the family of David and the citizens of Jerusalem…” (Voice)

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Grace. When the Spirit of Grace is upon you, things become effortless. I acknowledge the Spirit of Grace upon my life and I am totally grateful for it. Sometimes, when I share the amazing things that God is doing or has done in my life, people are literally in shock. Read the rest of this entry

New Streams!

Isaiah 43:18-19 (NIV) “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”

 

You need God so do not let anybody talk you out of walking with the Holy Spirit! No matter what part of the world you are in, engaging the supernatural is not an option it is a necessity. What the world is trying to do is to make you spiritually dead, Read the rest of this entry

Sight

Ps.103:1-2 (ERV) “My soul, praise the Lord! Every part of me, praise his holy name! My soul, praise the Lord and never forget how kind he is! 3 He forgives all our sins and heals all our sicknesses.

1 Sam.1:8 (NCV) “Her husband Elkanah would say to her, ‘Hannah, why are you crying and why won’t you eat?  Why are you sad?  Don’t I mean more to you than ten sons?’” (emphasis added). Read the rest of this entry

Outlook

3 John 1:2 (KJV) “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”

Common wealth by community is a safety net that God has put in place. It is so important that you see it as just that and not a supply source. Think of it as a safety net that God has put in place and for your benefit, Read the rest of this entry

Blended

John 2:11 [AMPC] This, the first of His signs (miracles, wonderworks), Jesus performed in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory [by it He displayed His greatness and His power openly], and His disciples believed in Him [adhered to, trusted in, and relied on Him].

As a follower of Jesus, you must be open to the supernatural and you must engage the practical. Jesus shows up at a place where there is no food and He would multiply bread and fish, Read the rest of this entry

Surplus

Matt.7:7 “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.”

God specializes in surplus and this is consistent with scriptures. Read the rest of this entry
