Recognise the Law of Increase
Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. - Luke 6:38
There is a law of increase. Those who do not have value for God's word will not be enriched in these last days. Wealth is more than money. Whatever you can see comes from the spirit realm. The law of gravity is a law in the physical, it does not respect whether you are a man or woman. Spiritual law is more real because it has its origin in the truth of God's word which is more biding. The bible says: while the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease. The law of increase is the law of sowing and reaping. It is an eternal law. The harvest is to encourage us because when we give, we give with all our hands, in receiving, we receive with our bosom. This means that the harvest is usually more than the seed. Even in marriage the baby, which is the harvest is greater than the seed.
Every time you are decreasing in life, you must ask yourself what is wrong with you. It is either you are foolish, or you are unfaithful. Many become bitter and blame people for their failure. Be careful that you do not waste your seed; it is not every ground that yields good result. It is not every giving that produces good harvest. That is why you must ask yourself what returns am I having for my sowing? Until Moses turned aside to the burning bush, God did not talk to him. We must care enough to ask relevant questions, if not, God will not talk because this shows that we are not receptive to him. There is no reason to find fault or be offended, God is not a respecter of persons.
Scripture says in Acts 10:35 that but in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him. What do you do in times like these when things that are free are no more free? You must treat your money as a seed. It will produce beautiful harvest. Solomon the richest in the Old Testament understood this principle. When God is ready for you, he gives you increase and multiplication. It is a known fact, that a seed of maize produces 600 other maize after some months. Whatever God is doing will lead to increase. The bible says in 2 Cor 4:16 that for which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. There is no reason to faint. Be faithful in sowing your seed so you can reap a harvest. Some do not know how to receive. Do not pretend or be religious for you should have no apology to receive if you are a sower. If you are poor, it is your choice. So, do not choose poverty for poverty is a bad friend.
Prayer: Lord, make my seeds to endure forever and let my path shine brighter and brighter as I walk in the plan you have for me in Jesus name.
