"Using All You Have is Enough"
"And He took the seven loaves and the fish and gave thanks, broke then gave them to His disciples; and the disciples gave the multitude."
Spiritual multiplication is allowing God to use what you have and increasing it to meet a need beyond your natural ability. In a crowd of 5,000 men not counting women and children, what can a boy's small lunch accomplish?
The Lord, the creator of all things, can take what we have and recreate it for His glory. In the multitude a small lunch might not seem life much, but in the hands of Jesus "little is much when God is in it..labor not for wealth or fame. There's a crown and you can when it, if you go in Jesus' name."
With the Lord, it's not how much you have, but are you willing to use all you have for the Lord. In Mark 6:41-44, Jesus took five loaves and two fish and multiplied it to feed over 5,000 men. The disciples gathered twelve baskets of leftovers. The disciples would never forget the abundance of food Jesus provided that day. When they were tempted to disbelieve, the baskets of leftovers would come to their memory.
We need to look at life not with worldly eyes, but with godly eyes. We need to give thanks to God for what we have and not what we don't have. Our prayer should be "Lord help us not to look at what we want, but help us to be willing to give what we have and for trust God's His provision.
