41And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before them; and the two fishes divided he among them all. (Mark 6:35-44)


Jesus faced an impossible task. There were five thousand men, and many of them with families, who needed to be fed. All He had were five loaves of bread and two small fish. Although Jesus was God, He was also a man. This situation was more than His sinless natural mind could comprehend. He had to look beyond the natural and tap into His Father’s supernatural ability. That’s why He looked up!

Jesus took His eyes off the natural realm and looked into the spiritual realm. The Greek word translated looked up means “to look up; by implication, to recover sight.” This word is also translated receive seven times and received seven times in reference to blind eyes being opened. When Jesus looked up, His spiritual eyes were opened to the power of God. That was more than enough to multiply what He had in His hands and accomplish this miracle.

There’s a spiritual answer to every physical problem you face. The answer is just as real as the natural impossibility, and God’s supply is infinitely greater than your lack! In order to appropriate that supply, you need to look up and receive spiritual sight. If you are blind spiritually, you have just as much difficulty in the spiritual realm as a physically blind person has in the natural realm, but you don’t have to stay that way. All you need to do is see with your faith.

Can you see by faith what God wants you to have? If you can see it on the inside, you can have it on the outside.
