multiply!

“Surely blessing I will bless you and multiplying I will multiply you” (Hebrews 6:14).

‘I will multiply you’ is the promise of God and His will too. The people of God should multiply in Spiritual life, in Spiritual gifts, Spiritual power and Spiritual prayer. How long could the Christians remain in India with a static strength of 5%? How long could they tolerate the reproaches and humiliations amidst the gentiles?

When Abraham was left to stand alone, God called him and promised to multiply him. For when God made a promise to Abraham because He could swear by no one greater, He swore by Himself, saying, “Surely blessing I will bless you and multiplying I will multiply you. (Hebrews 6:13, 14).

You have been the children of Abraham. All those who are of faith are the children of Abraham. All the promises and inheritances which had been given to Abraham have been given to you also. So, you should multiply. God showed Abraham to what extent he was going to be multiplied. When God spoke he compared the multiplication of the descendants of Abraham with three things which are dust of the earth, sand of the sea and the stars of the heaven.

Among those three things, two are related to the world, which are dust of the earth and the sand of the sea and the next is related to the heavens – stars of the heaven. Being the children of God, you have to inherit and grow not only with the worldly blessings but also with the heavenly blessings. Daniel, the prophet writes about the heavenly blessings as follows: “Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever” (Daniel 12:3).

Dear children of God, look at the days of the Apostles. How speedily the church multiplies and grows! Every sermon brought thousands of people towards Salvation and they were taken to the church. Soul winning, miracles, signs and fervent prayers were there. That is the secret of theb expansion. Today God blesses you saying ‘I will multiply you’. From today onwards, the efforts of your hands and the income of your family will increase. More than that, you will also multiply in your soul, Spiritual life and ministry.

To meditate: “A little one shall become a thousand, And a small one a strong nation. I, the Lord, will hasten it in its time” (Isaiah 60:22).
