God wants you to prosper. God wants you to increase. But to increase in this world according to God’s plan you have to keep a few things in mind. Seven things that bring increase are
1) Walking In Truth (Holiness)
The Word says to seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and then all these things shall be added to you. You have to keep your life holy and right before God.
Proverbs- A faithful man shall abound with blessings. If you are faithful to your church, faithful to spending time with God, faithful to the family of believers, then you are in a position to be blessed.
About the Word of God. If you want to increase you have to be diligent. You have to be in the Word today. You can’t live off of what the energy, guidance, and revelations you got from Father God yesterday.
The basis for financial breakthrough. I have never met a cheerful tither who wasn’t blessed. I have met many people not tithing who were in financial shipwreck. Honor God with the firstfruits of your income and He will honor you back.
Give and it shall be given to you. God is the number one giver. For God so loved the World that He GAVE. If you want to be blessed you’ve got to remember you are tithing 10% of your income to your local church, but really all of what you have belongs to Him. Also, you can’t be afraid to give to others. Time, effort, money, love, care, a listening ear… people need to know that God cares and we are His human hands and feet on this earth right now.
Abraham believed God and it was credited to him as righteousness. If you do not believe the good news God has planned for you, don’t expect much to happen. But if you believe, you release the power of God to act in your life. What? That’s right, when you believed that Jesus the Messiah was your Savior and accepted Him, and believed the work he did for you then you were saved.
This is probably where most believers blow it. They believe initially but then what they say after wards changes what they have said. I believe God is going to get me free from this credit card debt. But after praying that and believing that in church, they start saying things like I don’t know how God is going to get us out of this debt… Faith is saying what you expect not what you have. Everyone knows what you have. But you want to set your expectation according to God’s Word and walk in the increase He has for you.
