June 19: The Law of Progressive Increase

... for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

–  Galatians 6:9

Read: Mark 4:26-29; Galatians 6: 7-10

Often times, because we know that God is all powerful, we have a tendency to treat Him like a magician. True, God can do all things, but He chooses to bind Himself by principles. Today’s principle is yet another very important one. The law of progressive increase: Any seed you sow will take its time to grow. I know many times we want overnight miracles. Some of us wish we could win a million-dollar lottery tomorrow. However, God’s increase is always gradual; it may seem slow but it is definitely steady. One of the reasons for this is that He prepares us to be able to handle our harvest when it comes. He wants us to have a growth right to the wealth He is bringing our way. The prodigal son in the parable Jesus told was totally incapable of handling his inheritance; so instead of God allowing us to be overwhelmed and ultimately destroyed by wealth, He matures us and purifies our motives and desires in the process. However, you can rest assured, a little mustard seed will become a mighty mustard tree; it may take a while, but it will surely happen. So, child of God, if you haven’t started sowing, I encourage you to start sowing today. If you are not weary, you will reap in due season.
