Sunday morning during our Rich Thoughts for Breakfast call the word increase was in the text four or five times and so was the word capacity.
Later, as I was meditating, the Lord led me to Ecclesiastes 5:18-20 in the Message Bible which says:
“After looking at the way things are on this earth, here’s what I’ve decided is the best way to live: Take care of yourself, have a good time, and make the most of whatever job you have for as long as God gives you life. And that’s about it. That’s the human lot. Yes, we should make the most of what God gives, both the bounty and the capacity to enjoy it, accepting what’s given and delighting in the work. It’s God’s gift! God deals out joy in the present, the now. It’s useless to brood over how long we might live.”
As I’ve read and re-read these verses. . .I was stirred by Ecclesiastes 5:19 which says:
“Yes, we should make the most of what God gives, both the bounty and the capacity to enjoy it.”
The word capacity ignited in my spirit and God showed me seven ways to increase our capacity for success as we move in His blessing flow.
But first, let’s lay a foundation for this teaching.
