Luke 2:52 (AMP)
And Jesus increased in wisdom (in broad and full understanding) and in stature and years, and in favor with God and man.
Jesus increased. He did not stay the same year after year, His life bore fruit of progress. He was not stagnant. Sometimes people just talk a good talk, yet their life has no evidence of real change or increase. They make no effort to see increase in their life. They do the same things; year after year, yet they expect different results in their lives. They want results that they see others have who are really doing what it takes to get results. In all reality their spirit man has not grown in years.
The will of God for every child of God is that we increase in every area of life. Our increasing gives witness of God's goodness.We become a living testimony bearing witness that the Word of God is true. The bible tells us that God proved His love to us. God is always seeking ways to prove His love in our lives. God is a good God. Our lives should bear fruit of His goodness. There is so much more for you. Rise up in the grace of God, and increase. God is on your side, fear not, He will not allow your foot to slide. Be bold and seek His face and glorify Him in your race. The day will soon come when we will all see His face. Rise up and take your place, you are on the increase in Christ Jesus!
