Keeping God #1 in Your Business (PR_Vol_234)

God Is Behind Your Increase!

1 Corinthians 3:7
So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase.

Sometimes, we think that the increase or success which we enjoy is the result of our own efforts or hard work. Now, I am not advocating laziness, but the truth is that God is the one behind our increase.

We see this truth when we read the story of Ruth, a young widow from Moab, who worked as a gleaner in a barley field from morning till evening. Now, we could attribute the entire ephah—a substantial 10-day supply—of barley she collected at the end of the day to her hard work. After all, she did work all day in the field.

But when we read about how Boaz, the owner of the field, had secretly told his reapers to “let grain from the bundles fall purposely for her; leave it that she may glean”
(Ruth 2:16), we know that it was because of Boaz’s intervention that Ruth ended up with so much.

I believe that Jesus, our heavenly Boaz, does the same thing for us today. He causes people to favor us and “drop” blessings on us because He loves us. Then, He causes us to “pick up” these blessings. Often, it happens so seemingly naturally we forget that it is the Lord who has blessed us with the increases.

Remember the story of Isaac? There was a severe famine in the land and Isaac, who put God 1st, obeyed Gods’ instruction not to go to Egypt like everyone else but to stay and farm the land. The result of this obedience was that; When Isaac planted his crops that year, he harvested a hundred times more grain than he planted, for the Lord blessed him. He became a very rich man, and his wealth continued to grow. (Genesis 26:12) I’m sure Isaac worked hard, but that hard work would not have produced the miraculous harvest if he had relied on his hard work and gone to Egypt.

My friend, your hard work is not behind your increase. The Bible tells us that it is “God who gives the increase”. He is the one who is behind your increase and He delights in blessing you because He loves you! Many people pride themselves on being a
Self-made-man/woman” The bible talks about having “Good Success
(Joshua 1:8) this leaves us to believe that perhaps there is also “Bad Success” such as; success at the expense of one’s family, health, integrity or eternal disposition.

Beloved, Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will
give you everything you need. (Matthew 6:33) NLT. The blessing of the Lord makes a person rich, and he adds no sorrow with it. (Proverbs 10:22) NLT.
