If you can and if you will, here is the result you will receive: God will transform all that you transfer.
Transfer your time into God’s hands, and He will transform one hour of labor into years of fruitful results. Transfer your talent, and God will transform it into a gift that brings you before kings and opens unbelievable doors of opportunity.
Transfer your treasure into your Father’s hands, and He will make accessible to you His divine and eternal storehouses of provision with His commitment to always “supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19).
It all begins with the opening of your hand.
Had the child held tightly to his little lunch, then that’s all he would have ever had—a little lunch.
The opening of his hand allowed for the human transfer, and that became the divine transformation.
Look what happened to that investment. Every man, woman, and child was fed! The child’s food multiplied as the disciples began to distribute it; so much so, that by day’s end, they gathered 12 baskets of leftovers.
That’s what I call “increase.”
In this remarkable Amos 9:13 season, you can expect the blessing of increase. It will be a time of scriptural fulfillment. How I long for balance in the message of biblical prosperity today! A doctrinal imbalance concerning any scriptural theme will ultimately lead to abuse and error in the body of Christ. Please understand, contrary to how some may present it, God’s promise of “increase” applies as much to sowing mercy, forgiveness, and good deeds as it does to money.
Jesus wasn’t receiving an offering in Luke 6:38 when He said, “Give and it will be given unto you.” While this promise may certainly apply to finances, it actually refers to the currency of forgiveness and our need to be more merciful and less judgmental of one another.
I’m convinced that this is the season of anticipated expansion in these and all other human and spiritual arenas. For example, according to Isaiah 26:3, God will increase your peace. “You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You.”
In Joshua 24:13, God promised to expand favor for your family. “I have given you a land for which you did not labor, and cities which you did not build, and you dwell in them; you eat of the vineyards and olive groves which you did not plant.”
Malachi 3:10 promises surplus to those who will be faithful to the Lord in tithing. “Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this,” says the Lord of hosts, “if I will not open for you the windows of heaven, and pour out for you such blessing, that there will not be room enough to receive it.”
The desire of the Father for you is that you “Enlarge the place of your tent and let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings. Do not spare; lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes” (Isaiah 54:2).
Your fruitfulness brings great delight to our Heavenly Father. “Beloved, I wish above all things that you would prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers” (3 John 1:2).
The Amos 9:13 season will bring increase and expansion for the body of Christ. As we transfer our trust and faith to our Father in heaven, He will wondrously transform all we place in His care.
