1 – God wants to increase the miracles that you experience.
Luke 21:15, “for I will give you a mouth and wisdom which all your adversaries will not be able to contradict or resist.”
Prov. 16:7, “When a man’s ways please the LORD,
He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.”
Isa. 54:17, “No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD,
And their righteousness is from Me,”
Says the LORD.”
Eccl. 7:12, “For wisdom is a defense as money is a defense,
But the excellence of knowledge is that wisdom gives life to those who have it.”
Prov. 2:6, “For the LORD gives wisdom;
From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;”
Mark 11:23-24, “For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. 24Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.”
2. God wants to increase your revelation of the Holy Spirit in your life.
Ps. 25:12-14, “Who is the man that fears the LORD?
Him shall He teach in the way He chooses.
13 He himself shall dwell in prosperity,
And his descendants shall inherit the earth.
14 The secret of the LORD is with those who fear Him,
And He will show them His covenant.”
Eze. 36:22-26, “Therefore say to the house of Israel, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “I do not do this for your sake, O house of Israel, but for My holy name’s sake, which you have profaned among the nations wherever you went. 23And I will sanctify My great name, which has been profaned among the nations, which you have profaned in their midst; and the nations shall know that I am the LORD,” says the Lord GOD, “when I am hallowed in you before their eyes. 24For I will take you from among the nations, gather you out of all countries, and bring you into your own land. 25Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. 26I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.”
Wisdom creates currents of favor towards me. More I walk in wisdom, the more I will walk in holiness.
3. God Wants to increase my wisdom. Plan ahead, manage increase. Manage resources.
Prov. 4:8, “Exalt her, and she will promote you;
She will bring you honor, when you embrace her.”

Therefore get wisdom.
And in all your getting, get understanding.”
James 1:5, “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.”
Eph. 1:8, “which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence,”
4. God wants to increase my finances. Let God bless us.
Ps. 112:1-3, “Praise the LORD!
Blessed is the man who fears the LORD,
Who delights greatly in His commandments.
2 His descendants will be mighty on earth;
The generation of the upright will be blessed.
3 Wealth and riches will be in his house,
And his righteousness endures forever.”
Keys of Sowing and Reaping
To Increase your finances:
There will never be a day in your life that you will have nothing to sow.
You will always reap exactly what you sow.
Your seed is anything that blesses somebody.
The law of the seed (sowing & reaping) was intended to birth encouragement, hope and excitement towards a harvest.
Your seed is any tool God has given you to create your future.
Something you have been given by God will create anything else that you have been promised by God.
You are a walking collection of seeds.
Someone near you is “the soil” qualified to receive your seed.
When I let go of what is in my hand, God let’s go of what’s in His hand.
The seed that leaves your hand never leaves your life, it just leaves your hand and enters into the future where it multiplies.
If you keep what you presently have, that is the most it will ever be.
When you ask God for a harvest, God will always ask you for a seed.
Your seed (given, planted) is the only proof that you have mastered greed.
When you increase the size of your seed, you increase the size of your harvest.
Your seed is always your door out of trouble.
Your seed must always be comparable to the harvest you are desiring.
Nothing leaves heaven until something leaves earth.
Your seed is what God multiplies, your faith is why He multiplies it.
When you sow into others what nobody else is willing to sow, you will reap what no one else has ever reaped.
Your seed is your only influence over your future.
Your seed is the only master your future will ever obey.
Never pray for more money, always pray for more favor, but it is ok to pray for God’s money.
When God talks to me about a seed, He has a harvest (for me and others) on His mind.
Your seed is a photograph of your faith.
Uncommon seed will always create an uncommon harvest.
Can’t cheat and achieve prosperity. Prosperity must come from the head of the family, or you’re deceiving yourself.
5. God wants to increase your life span on the earth.
Eph. 6:2-3, “Honor your father and mother,” which is the first commandment with promise: 3“that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.”
Ps. 92:14, “They shall still bear fruit in old age;
They shall be fresh and flourishing,”

3“Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the country.
4“Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, the produce of your ground and the increase of your herds, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks.
5“Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl.
6“Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.
7“The LORD will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before your face; they shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways.
8“The LORD will command the blessing on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand, and He will bless you in the land which the LORD your God is giving you.
9“The LORD will establish you as a holy people to Himself, just as He has sworn to you, if you keep the commandments of the LORD your God and walk in His ways. 10Then all peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the LORD, and they shall be afraid of you. 11And the LORD will grant you plenty of goods, in the fruit of your body, in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your ground, in the land of which the LORD swore to your fathers to give you. 12The LORD will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. 13And the LORD will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them. 14So you shall not turn aside from any of the words which I command you this day, to the right or the left, to go after other gods to serve them.”
