TO THE BIBLE Mark 4:8 NASB
“Other seeds fell into the good soil, and as they grew up and increased, they yielded a crop and produced thirty, sixty, and a hundredfold.”
Refuse To Have A Lack Mentality “I always end up broke whenever I give,” Howard pondered as he walked home from church, “I think I’ll just stop this ‘giving’ thing altogether.” What Howard didn’t realise was that he failed to see positive results from his giving because his mind was focused on what he had let go of rather than what he stood to gain—a multiplied harvest of his seed!
When you give to the Lord, you shouldn’t do so with the mentality of loss; don’t get in the flesh by “calculating” what you have left. For instance, if you had a hundred dollars, and wanted to give God twenty, don’t start thinking, “But I’ll only have eighty dollars left. That won’t be enough for all my other expenses!” You could have a thirty-fold, sixty-fold, or even a hundred-fold return! Now imagine that you had a hundred, and you gave twenty to the Lord; thirty-fold of that would be six hundred. That’s six hundred plus the eighty you had left, making six-eighty! That should be your mentality. That way, you set into motion the miracle-working power of God for a great harvest. Interestingly, the promise of a thirty-fold harvest is the least: there’s the sixty, as well as the hundred-fold harvest; it depends on which one your faith can go for.
Someone might wonder, “What kind of calculation is that?” It’s Kingdom Mathematics! It’s a mystery to the people of the world, but in the Kingdom, it’s something real and practicable. It’s a mentality; train yourself in it; be positive and expectant of a multiplied harvest when you give to the Lord.
2 Corinthians 9:6-8; Luke 6:38
Dear Father, thank you for showing me how to experience increase on every side. I have mighty harvests of blessings and miracles today. You’ve made all grace available to me, to have all sufficiency in all things, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
