Apostle Grace Lubega
2 Corinthians 9:10 (KJV); 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;)
In the realm of the spirit, increase is defined by addition and multiplication.
For example, In Matthew 6:33, the Bible says, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be ADDED unto you.” This is an operation of growth by addition.
In Acts 2:46-47, the scriptures say, “And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And THE LORD ADDED TO THE CHURCH daily such as should be saved.”
However, God does not want you to only increase by addition. His desire is for you to grow by multiplication.
He told the father of faith, Abraham, in Genesis 26:4, “And I will make thy seed to MULTIPLY as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed.”
Having clothes is an addition. The ability to clothe nations comes by multiplication. Having food is an addition. The ability to feed multitudes comes by multiplication.
Multiplication came by the message because the seed is the multiplier. By the testimony of Luke 8:11, the seed is the Word.
If you seek multiplication in any area of your life, look to the Word. It is by the Word that we transcend beyond having enough to pay for our bills to lending to nations. It is by the Word that we transition from influencing a few individuals in our immediate circles to changing the world.

It is by the Word that we transition from influencing a few individuals in our immediate circles to changing the world.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this truth. I am a child of the Word. It defines everything I say and do. I look to it in all things. The Word brings multiplication in my career, my business, and my ministry. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
