Love you all, praying for you.
What if you had more? Increase. Today I am praying for you – for increase... that God would give increase. The two questions are; What is increase? And Increase in what? Increase is more, more than you had before. But increase in ‘what’ - is important. More money? That’s worthless and dangerous. Worthless because if you have money without wisdom, it will be gone as quickly as you get it. You might get it, but you won’t keep it. Because you lack wisdom. And dangerous because if money becomes what you want increase of, your love for money will grow more than your love for God. You cannot love God and money. And whoever loves money becomes disappointed, disillusioned, and will not go unpunished. That’s what God’s Word says. So that’s not the increase I’m praying for you for. More money doesn’t mean more happiness anymore than more money means more ministry. The greatest revival happened without money. The believers were scattered by persecution that arose in Jerusalem, and they fled Jerusalem with the shirts on their back, taking the good news of Jesus’ love and eternity with the Father in Heaven – all over the world – and they didn’t have money. God provided for them along the way. So what increase do you need and desire? I’m praying for you for increase in faith. It pleases God. He responds to faith, more than need. Many needed to be healed, but Jesus healed those with faith. He said it was their faith that healed them. It comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God, and by Praying in the Spirit – God said it specifically). Testimony is important – your Daily Call is important – it helps your hearing increase, so your faith will increase. I’m praying for you for increase in humility. If you humble yourself, God will exalt you in due time, take the low place, and He will raise you to the high place – in the fullness of time. I’m praying for you for an increase of wisdom – PRISM is so important – that Proverbs chapter for today, so you grow in wisdom, that will bring increase in every area of life. I’m praying for you for an increase of the Word of God. It’s the source of truth and life, if you have the Word, you will have discernment, protection, and it’s wisdom for you! It’s the very Words of God to you – to establish you and increase you! I’m praying for you for an increase in prayer – See the Prayer Packet. God say pray without ceasing. How do you increase in prayer? Set a time, and Pray all the time. The disciples had an hour of prayer each day. If you can’t do a full hour, start with five minutes – at the hour of prayer. And pray always – every time you change activities, before lunch, between appointments, every time you get in the car. Pray in the Spirit, and in the understanding – ask God what He wants you to pray. Take your PiVAT Prayer List with you. God will lead you in prayer – it’s a conversation with Him, about the conversation He wants you to have with Him – if you let the Holy Spirit lead you. Praying for you for an increase in obedience. You can’t walk in wisdom without obedience, you can’t grow in faith without obedience, and you can’t experience the Goodness of God without obedience, nor can you fulfill your purpose. Obedience is a path, not a list. It brings you to the blessing of the LORD, and he adds no trouble with it. Praying for an increase in obedience. It pleases God, and positions you! That’s why PiVAT is so important. The 1st step of obedience is asking God what He wants you to do. Just ask Him and start this hour. That’s how he leads you from there. PRISM is so important to obedience, it tells you the why and how – for what He told you to do, and it reminds you of His great love for you! Praying for an increase of His Presence. That time in worship where your focus is on him, and not all that you need or want. It’s the place from which you receive everything you need, and everything He wants to give you. Praying for you for an increase of vision. So you see what He has for you. PiVAT is how you grow your vision. Especially PiVAT Weekly, PiVAT Monthly and Yearly – if you ask Him for the future – His vision for you – He will surely answer you. You will increase in vision – the more you talk to Him about His heart and His plans for you. Praying for you for an increase in encouragement – that you like David will learn to encourage yourself in the LORD – in the LORD is ‘in His Word.’ That ‘s why PRISM is so important! And your Daily Call is crucial to encouragement. God said, encourage one other person daily Hebrews 3:13 – It’s how you increase in encouragement. You get what God gives you, and you also get what God gives them! The blessing that comes to them, from their obedience as God leads them, will encourage you to walk in everything God has for you! Praying that you will increase in fruit. The result of walking in the presence and plans of God – is fruit. It’s what makes everything worth it! Apples are what an apple tree produces. Grapes are what the vine produces. It’s more than just looks, it’s fruit! Praying that your love for God will increase. He loves you with an everlasting love – and as you grow in your love for Him, your life just grows sweeter and richer and fuller. No matter what you go through - He goes before you, and He is right with you, He will never leave you nor forsake you, and the more you love Him, the more you will learn His great, great, love for you. Praying for you… that you will increase!
