"Faye's Daily Word Of Encouragement # 142 Today's Word Is: Increase"

And the apostles said unto the Lord, increase our faith. Luke 17-5
And the apostles said unto the Lord, increase our faith. Luke 17-5

"Faye Daily Words Of Encouragement # 142 Today's Word Is: Increase

Definition of the word Increase: To make or become more or larger. The amount or rate which something is augmented.

Psalms chapter 115 - 14 : The Lord shall increase you more, you and your children.

Proverbs chapter 1 -5 : A wise man will hear and will increase learning and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels.

Ecclesiastes chapter 1-18 : For in much wisdom is much grief, and he that increaseth knowledge sorrow.

Daniel chapter 12 - 4 : But thou O Daniel shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.

Luke  chapter 2 - 52 :And Jesus increased in wisdom and statue, and in favor with God and man.

Luke 17 - 5 : And the apostles said unto the Lord, increase our faith.

Acts chapter 6 - 7 :  And the word of God increased; and the number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith.

Acts 16 - 5 : And ,so were the churches established in faith, and  increased in number daily.

Revelation chapter 3 - 17 : Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knoweth not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind and naked.

Today's daily words of Encouragement is the word Increased, we all desire increase and strive for increase in our every day lives.  Whether it's increase in wisdom or knowledge o in hfinancial stability.  Increase  is a word that makes the want, the world go around, because people always want more, and the more we need an increase to make it all happen.  Anything that's added to us or our lives is called increase; when we have children our families increase, when our children get married the increase, there are so many increases in life to talk about.  when we buy a house that increase, an new car is an increase in our debt responsibility.

Sometimes increase are not good ones, but they are necessary. If we increase in wisdom and the knowledge of the word of God; that's a good increase but the  bible says it also increase our grief and sorrow. I guess we all have to choose what increase that will benefits us spiritually speaking in our  every day lives.

      I appreciate how you brought out that increasing in some things is good, while increasing in other things is not so good. So we really have to find and strike a balance. Thanks for another great reminder.

      Hi creativeone. I thought of Solomon asking the Lord for wisdom and then determined that it was all vanity. I guess like most things that is a positive and a negative even to "increase."

      Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

      Forever His,
