If it was such an easy process to see through, there would be many more members of the Body of Christ living a life of less want, and of more abundance. And don’t forget what Jesus said in John 10:10 (KJV), The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. Jesus is talking about more than just finance here, but also and more so of our mind, health, and joy that they all be to us in abundance. It’s obvious as we encounter, and view many others that this abundance has not come to the many. It is there for the many, but there are many that start out and come up short.
The “Word” is the seed to our fold increase. And it almost sounds as though God expects at least a thirtyfold increase to fold our way. He doesn’t speak of less than thirty, but there are many that do not get that on a regular basis. Matthew 13:8 (KJV) says, But other (seed) fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold. We have to become more skillful at making sure that more Word remains good seed, and that we make the moves necessary to see that it produces the most fold possible.
We will talk about how to do that with skill on tomorrow. The Father wants us to increase: He loves to do the body good!
