God's will for you and me as Christians is to bless us a thousandfold!
The Bible talks about the hundredfold return on our giving, but there also is a thousandfold blessing. There is a hundredfold return on our seed-faith giving, but there is a thousandfold blessing of increase and prosperity on our obedience as sons and daughters of Messiah's Kingdom.
In Genesis 22: 16-18 we read about the blessing of Abraham:
"16 By Myself I have sworn, declares the LORD, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son, 17 indeed I will greatly bless you, and I will greatly multiply your seed as the stars of the heavens, and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your seed shall possess the gate of their enemies. 18 And in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.”
And in Deuteronomy 1:11 Moses reminding the children of Abraham how God had indeed multiplied and increased them as the stars of the heavens, calls this blessing a thousandfold blessing of increase:
"The LORD your God has multiplied you, and behold, you are this day as the stars of heaven for multitude. 11 ‘May the LORD, the God of your fathers, increase you a thousand-fold more than you are, and bless you, just as He has promised you!'"
Saints, this verse needs to be the theme verse for each one of us as believers. God's promise to each one of us who are Abraham's kids through faith in Jesus Christ is for a thousandfold blessing of increase on obedience of faith. God's promise each of us is for increase, multiplication, prosperity and success.
God is a big God!
He is not passive. He is active. He is going about blessing His people, enlarging, multiplying and increasing us in every area of our lives.
The will of God is for you to be blessed. Not blessed a little, but blessed a thousandfold.
Now what keeps it from happening?
