If you are conscious of lack in your life right now, don’t panic! It’s not here to stay if you get hold of a simple principle that Jesus Himself used; you are going to be able to break out of that tight space of impossibility that lack will always try to cramp you into.
When Jesus was faced with lack, He wasn’t intimidated by it, and so He wasn’t contained by it. He understood that increase is available.
Life is lived on levels, and the thinking that brings answers to your situation is not the same thinking that stumbled upon the situation in the first place. To solve a problem of any kind, including lack, you have to go up a level in your thinking. Stop thinking impossibility, and start thinking possibility! Just accept that increase is available.
Look at what Jesus did when he fed huge crowds from one small portion of fish and bread.
When faced with the insufficient supply, Jesus did not panic; He did not complain and worry or doubt the care of His Father.
Instead He GAVE THANKS for what He had! With just a little bit of food in his hands, which was clearly a long way below the amount He would need, He acted as though He had everything He needed.
He did not predict His outcomes by the impossibility he saw. He didn’t take instruction from His circumstances and allow that to dictate how many people He would feed. He merely GAVE THANKS for what He had, knowing that God increases what you are grateful for in life.
It’s so simple and yet it takes a determination of mindset to carry it through.
When you look at the bills and what you have right now is insufficient, don’t go talking to anyone about it to get sympathy. Just lift up the partial amount you have in your hand and keep thanking God for it.
When you are feeling the pinch in an apartment or a hostel that is too small, talk to God all about His goodness to you in giving you a roof over your head, and celebrate your tiny kitchen and your cramped living room. Your thinking will be propelled into another realm and your situation won’t stay the same
Whatever you are feeling an acute need of in your life; for example money, friends, promotion, anointing, opportunities, favor, a husband or emotional well-being, turn it around by GIVING THANKS; and watch God increase you more and more. It’s supernatural!
