Have you ever wondered how to turn lack into abundance? The key lies not in making confessions over and over or trying to use the Bible as a magic book. Eradicating lack in your life has everything to do with executing a spiritual principle that always gets results. Simply put, if you want to see increase in your finances, you must put your “not enough” in the hands of Jesus. His hands are anointed to multiply whatever you give Him.
Every one of us has faced a situation or circumstance that looked impossible at one point or another in our lives. When you have a light bill due, or your baby needs a pair of shoes and your bank account looks deficient, you will be tempted to worry and wonder how things will turn around, particularly if deadlines and time constraints are involved. If you ever find yourself in this type of scenario, the first thing you need to do is shut out the voice of fear that will try to invade your thinking. God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind. When fear enters the picture, you have just set yourself up for more of what you do not want.
Get back to your center of peace and turn to God’s Word. Therein lies the answer to your problem. I like the account of Jesus feeding the five thousand with a couple pieces of fish and a few loaves of bread. In Mark 6:36-44, the disciples were facing insufficiency. There were 5000 hungry men to feed, not including women and children, and all they had was a two piece fish dinner! Even after traveling the countryside with Jesus and seeing the miracles He performed, they were confounded when faced with the shortage of food.
However, Jesus did not miss a beat; He performed a miracle. The anatomy of it is found in this passage of scripture (also in Matthew 14:17-21), which says: “And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes. He said, Bring them hither 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, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples 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.”
First, we see Jesus wanted the fishes and loaves brought to Him. Herein lies insight into getting our needs met. We must bring our “not enough” to Jesus. When we do, we will see what happened to the loaves and fishes happen to our resources. “…he…took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. And they did all eat, and were filled…” Not enough food in the hands of Jesus multiplied to more than enough!
What is it in your life that is lacking? Is it money, a home, food? Whatever it is you need, begin to tap into the law of sowing. Give what you do have to Jesus by sowing it into the life of an anointed man or woman of God, a church, ministry, or outreach that is ministering to others in the area in which you need assistance. When you put what is lacking in Jesus’ hands, it is guaranteed to multiply.
