What are you going to do with the increase?
In the beginning, God created all things. After He gave the increase, what was missing was someone to manage it. He needed someone to make sure that everything continued to grow, continued to prosper…he needed someone to take care of what He had given as a blessing.
Oftentimes, we pray for increase. We pray for abundance, for reconciliation, restoration, divine connections, healing, deliverance and breakthrough, but when we get it, so many of us mismanage it.
I have been prophetically speaking that these last six months of this year is going to bring increase and breakthrough like never before! That can mean something different for each and everyone of us.
But here’s the thing…if God heals your body of a sickness or disease and afterwards, you continue eating crazy…..are you being a good manager of the blessing and breakthrough that He just gave you? #selah If God restores your marriage, but you don’t have self control when it comes to your attitude or taking care of your home or your spouse the right way….are you being a good manager of what He just reconciled? #selah If God gave you financial increase and breakthrough, and you don’t use your money wisely or even tithe….are you being a good manager? #selah
Being a good manager is all about being a good steward over what God has given you. If you don’t manage it, it will fall away and continued increase won’t happen. Imagine if you were a bad manager on your job. Your turn over rate would be horrible because no one wants to work with or for you.
Adam and Eve had one simple job. They had to manage what God had given them, but because they had no self control, they lost their LIVELIHOOD! Instead of living forever they now had a death sentence. Not having self control opened up a spiritual portal that brought darkness not just to their lives, but to the entire world!
Your good management skills don’t only affect you. It affects those around you, whether directly or indirectly. Their livelihood is dependent upon how well you manage your livelihood. You have to be aware of that.
So, I challenge you today. Be a good manager. Show God that your stewardship is on FLEEK! lol….walk in excellence, put on the fruit of the spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness, & self-control). Increase and breakthrough is at hand. Show God that you are ready to manage it all!
