In Mind

As supernatural tools of heaven are moved to the front of the natural ones of the world, the things that Jesus did and greater will be demonstrated through His body. What to do for the needed miracle will already be in mind.

  • John 6:5-6 (NIV)
  • 5 When Jesus looked up and saw a great crowd coming toward him, he said to Philip, “Where shall we buy bread for these people to eat?” 6 He asked this only to test him, for he already had in mind what he was going to do.

When there is confidence in your tools, there is an application for their use that comes to mind when a potential problem arises. 

For the mechanic, rattling, smoking, shaking, or whatever issues are observed, only bring to mind what he will do to remedy the problem. Those same things only cause worry and fretting for the one with no tools or understanding, but for the one in possession of the solution, they are just an opportunity to utilize available resources. 

For Jesus, the amassing crowd presented an incredible opportunity to tap the tools within His possession and bless the people with food and increased faith. While He could have joined the disciples in thinking of how provisions could be acquired in the traditional way of going to town, Jesus’ thoughts immediately went to the less traditional miracle. He already had exactly what He was going to do in His mind. 

What comes to mind with the presented problem is a critical precedent for miracles. As long as the tools available are the traditional ones, there will be no wine from water, sight from applied mud, footpath on water, taxes in fishes mouths, or triumph on a cross. However, as there is time spent in the presence of the One who created the Universe, access is acquired to resources that transform what comes to mind with each arising issue. Unrestricted belief in the One who formed the worlds with words and man from dust will result in substance of things hoped for and evidence of things not seen. Like Peter, it will be what is acquired in the place of prayer that will be available for the physically afflicted. Rather that thinking of how to get help for them, there will be ministration of their complete healing from what is already available in overwhelming abundance. 

As supernatural tools of heaven are moved to the front of the natural ones of the world, the things that Jesus did and greater will be demonstrated through His body. What to do for the needed miracle will already be in mind.
