Dearly Beloved in Christ, I greet and bless you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of Ezekiel 36:11, “I will increase the number of people and animals living on you, and they will be fruitful and become numerous. I will settle people on you as in the past and will make you prosper more than before. Then you will know that I am the LORD.”
From the above context we learn that God wants to multiply you with many men and cattle. He is a God of blessing and wants to bless you in great measure. The first and foremost blessing that God gave to Adam and Eve was that they should multiply and increase in everything and fill the earth. God in the beginning of the creation itself had a plan to increase mankind. God wanted man to multiply and increase in everything he did. God who created man in his own image, was not content that he should remain in the same level or position, but move forward to the next level in life. It can be spiritual experience or it can be related to generations or based on the income or your financial stability. God expects that you should increase in all aspects of your life. It is not God’s plan that you should, shrink in life. But be widened, or expand in life. God expects His children to multiply with regard to children, in the family, or an increment in your salary, or an upliftment in your business. Whatever you do, there should be an increase.
Your relatives or your friends may desire to see your down fall. But God does not want to see you suffer from any loss. He always desires that you should do well in life. He is afflicted when you go through affliction. In case you fall the Lord will only lift you up and encourage you to rise up in life. He will only gather you up in his arms from your fallen state of life. Today you might have been pushed down in your business, or you might have been de-promoted in your service, instead of being promoted. Your friends or your own relatives may be spreading false tales about you and also speaking ill about you because of jealousy. Therefore you are terribly hurt about their odd behaviour. You are not able to move forward in life because of their interference.
Dearly Beloved, God wants to bring an end to all these petty problems and He desires that you live peacefully. He wants to bring an end to all the painful situation that you are going through. God had chosen this day to provide an increase in all your doings. He is emphasising on this particular thing that you move forward in your life, and not slip backward. If you desire to increase and multiply in your material and worldly life, then you need to spend more time with God. You need to increase your prayer life. The more you pray the more you will prosper. Learn to pray for a longer period of time, and then you shall be blessed. The more we pray the more we will be successful in our life. God Bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank you for this blessed day. Dear Lord, we thank You because You desire that we multiply and increase in our life. Thank You Father for promising us, to grant us men and cattle. And that You will make us prosperous more than before. We thank You for helping us move forward in life.
