He’ll Multiply Your
“Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness…”
(2 Corinthians 9:10).
Whenever you give to God, He multiplies your seed and releases an abundant harvest to you. That’s His nature, He’s a multiplier. He never gives you back exactly what you gave to Him. He multiplies it and ensures that your storehouse bursts at the seams with an overflow of abundance (Proverbs 3:9-10). Jesus demonstrated this when He fed five thousand men (women and children not counted) with five loaves of bread and two fishes.
The Bible records that the multitude had been with Him in a desert place for three days, listening to Him teach. His disciples got troubled and asked to send the people away so they could go into the neighbouring villages to get food (Matthew 14:15). But Jesus said to them “They need not depart; give ye them to eat. And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes”(Matthew 14:16-17).
Naturally, five loaves of bread, no matter how big, and two fishes, no matter how large, certainly wouldn’t suffice to feed five thousand men (not including the women and children). But then, the Bible says, Jesus took the five loaves and two fishes in His hands and blessed them. When He did, the anointing came on the bread and the fish, and He asked the disciples to feed the multitude. Thus, with the five loaves and two fishes the disciples fed five thousand men, plus the unaccounted number of women and children (Matthew 14:19).
After they had eaten, twelve baskets full of bread and fishes were gathered as leftovers (Mark 6:43). It stands to reason that the leftover twelve baskets went to the little boy, who volunteered his lunch with which the Master fed the multitude. He received more than enough, because he gave the Lord what he had, and the Lord multiplied it! Keep sowing your seeds and giving to God’s work, and He’ll see to it that you’re plugged to an unending supply. He’ll multiply your seeds sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness.
Dear Lord, I thank you for the opportunities you create for me to give and be a blessing in the Kingdom, knowing that in so doing, I’m in turn blessed and increased! I thank you for multiplying my seeds sown, and increasing the fruits of my righteousness, causing me to live in the overflow of your divine blessings, today and always, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
