Decrease to increase.

God more I less

You might have heard the term; “To become stronger…you must decrease to increase”. Most of us have never really understood what that meant. To decrease and become stronger in your spirit…you must set aside worldly expectations…and analyze God’s expectations. God simply desires for us to spend a few moments in prayer or relationship with Him. How often do we rush through our day, setting God aside? God loves it when we share His love and care with other’s…when we do something out of the kindness of our heart…just because. God also loves it when you sit down and read His Word, so that you can better know how to handle every day stresses. So, to decrease our constant rush through our day…and spend time doing the things God loves us to do…will actually increase our spiritual walk. This closer relationship with God, will give God the opportunity to help you more in your daily life. This help and outpouring of guidance from God, will increase your peace…better your relationships with others…and even better your financial stresses…simply because you decreased your busy time and increased in Faith!

He must become greater; I must become less. JOHN 4:30

But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen and protect you from the evil one.  2 THESSALONIANS 3:3

His divine power has given us everything we need for life and Godliness through our knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness. Through these He has given us His very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. 2 PETER 1:3-4

God is with us.
