Daily Bread 1-26-17
18 Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? do ye not remember?
19 When I brake the five loaves among five thousand, how many baskets of fragments took ye up? They say unto him , Twelve.

We read now of Christ speaking to his disciples of the leaven of the pharisees. He was warning them not to be listening to them. They, leaning unto their own carnal understanding, said it was because they had brought no bread. But he rebuked them in this scripture and said, How do you think it is actual bread I was talking about? I have supplied you with all the food that you need and also fed the multitudes in a miraculous way. He was trying to get them to be transformed into Spiritual thinkers. This is what we need today and this is why this scripture is still being read today. The word of God says that his followers will never be caught begging for bread but all we pray for is carnal blessing. We pray for food, money, work, houses, cars, the list goes on and on..............but God already promised us all of that if we would just follow him Spiritually and seek after Spiritual things. We do not understand the word of God because we are looking at it through carnal eyes. The leaven of the pharisees had nothing to do with bread but we see it as that if we are not looking at it through Spiritual eyes. God is still performing great miracles, he is still leaving his disciples in abundance that is not explainable. He still takes care of anyone who will have faith in him. All he asks is that we open ourselves to see through Spiritual eyes and hear through Spiritual ears. We will never be able to understand his will for us as long as we are looking for things on this earth. We must look for things from above. The things that are available from above are internal. They are in our hearts, minds, and souls. And anything good that is in our hearts, minds, and souls, comes from above. So let us pray without ceasing, and ask for his will to be done instead of for his supply of our carnal needs. Let us go through the spiritual transformation that even his disciples had to go through. So that, one day, we may see through clear eyes, and hear through clean ears, the Spiritual message and guidance the he has for us through the Holy Ghost! It is here! The time is now! Let us pray!!! Have a great day!!!
