As believers, we are God’s children. A child of God will reflect His character. Each week, we focus on one scripture while highlighting a declaration (Who God is) and affirmation (Who we are as believers).
This week’s scripture is:
9 Then God blessed Noah and his sons and told them, “Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth. 2 All the animals of the earth, all the birds of the sky, all the small animals that scurry along the ground, and all the fish in the sea will look on you with fear and terror. I have placed them in your power. 3 I have given them to you for food, just as I have given you grain and vegetables.
Genesis 9:1-3 NLT
I will be fruitful and multiply.
So often, people look at being fruitful and multiplying as a phrase purely for having children, but I think God has tasked us with something much deeper than that. Being fruitful is also about growth. When God bestows His blessing on us, there are promises involved. Promises of protection, provision, and abundance. As we move through life, we have to have faith in those promises and that requires spiritual growth. When we mature spiritually, God multiplies; He grants us with increase.
A Prayer Starter…
Heavenly Father, Thank You for Your continued blessings. You are so awesome and full of abundance, Lord. I am never lacking in what I need. Continue to guide me as I strive to be fruitful and multiply… Amen.
