Psalm 115:12-14 NKJV “The LORD has been mindful of us; He will bless us…May the LORD give you increase more and more, you and your children.”
God has a covenant with His people to increase them, not just once, but continually. Increase is a result of the blessing on God’s covenant people. If we go through the Scriptures, one will find that increase and multiplication is the portion of God’s people. Exodus 1:7 reveals that the children of Israel while in a foreign land were “fruitful and increased abundantly, multiplied and grew exceedingly mighty”. Isaac also prospered in a foreign land in the midst of a severe drought (Gen.26:12). Jesus came that we the church may enjoy the abundant ever increasing life of God (John 10:10).
“The LORD has been mindful of us“: if only we could realize that God has increase on His mind. This represents His desire to increase you financially, mentally, in influence, in the fruit of the spirit. We have a responsibility to align ourselves with this fact by our expectation and faith, renewing our minds for increase. Increase is your heritage; you are supposed to increase today from yesterday. The world has a natural tendency towards mediocrity, things if left alone will deteriorate, “though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day” (2 Cor.4:16). However by faith we lay hold of this covenant promise in order to experience increase.
Understand that this message on increase is not supposed to fuel any covetous desire, rather it is to demonstrate the covenant and love God has towards His people. To increase means to become greater in size. The blessing of God enables us to increase spiritually, which in turn causes visible manifestations because all things have their root in the spirit. What are you doing to align yourself with increase? Do you rebel against mediocrity? Do you constantly put in the effort to make yourself better, spirit, soul and body? Start today and enjoy the blessings of increase!
