Dear Partners and Friends,

God has increase on His mind- especially where you and I are concerned! When Psalms 115:12 makes the statement, “The Lord has been mindful of us...” it clarifies exactly what is on His mind where we are concerned. He wants to bless us. He wants to bless us more and more! He wants to continually increase and bless us.
One of my favorite verses is found in the book of Jeremiah. It clearly expresses the desire that our Heavenly Father has in His heart for us.

And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; but I will put my fear in their hearts, that they shall not depart from me. Yea, I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will plant them in this land assuredly with my whole heart and with my whole soul. Jeremiah 32:40-41

Half of the battle is just knowing that God wants to bless you. He wants to increase you and do good for you in every aspect of your life. Remember, faith begins where the will of God is known. As you become aware of God’s intent and desire to prosper you, you can employ your faith and get in line with His perfect will for you.

First of all, become convinced that this is what the Lord wants for you. Romans 4:21 describes Abraham as being “fully persuaded.” That is exactly what you and I need to achieve- a full persuasion. We need to be absolutely convinced that God’s very best for us is increase and abounding. This persuasion can be found by giving heed to God’s Word. Look at this New Testament passage that discusses God’s purpose and response to our sowing financial seed.

8And God is able to make all grace (every favor and [c]earthly blessing) come to you in abundance, so that you may always and under all circumstances and whatever the need [d]be self-sufficient [possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation].
9As it is written, He [the benevolent person] scatters abroad; He gives to the poor; His deeds of justice and goodness and kindness and benevolence will go on and endure forever!
10And [God] Who provides seed for the sower and bread for eating will also provide and multiply your [resources for] sowing and increase the fruits of your righteousness [[e]which manifests itself in active goodness, kindness, and charity].
11Thus you will be enriched in all things and in every way, so that you can be generous, and [your generosity as it is] administered by us will bring forth thanksgiving to God.
II Corinthians 9:8-11 AMPC

     The Lord has supplied His favor to come to us in an abundant supply. The purpose of this favor is to move us past the level of just being self- sufficient into the level of being furnished in abundance for every good work. The Lord desires that we have our needs supplied and an overflow of resources for sowing! He wants us enriched so that we can be generous.

     We are already in position for the increase because we are in Christ. The blessing of Abraham is ours as heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ Jesus. The blessing contains the multiplication and the increase of favor. We are submitted to the Head of the Body, Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and through Him “...all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God. (Colossians 2:19)”
