April 13
…for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,   Romans 3:23-24 ESV
 
Numbers 32 

Increase.  The land of Israel was increased by the request of the tribes of Reuben and Gad.  
 
Proverbs 23 
Making one’s life focus on wealth is foolish.  Making one’s life focus on the Lord brings wealth in all areas of my life.  Instruction and knowledge are to be gained throughout my life.  The Bible is so very clear about not enabling our children in bad behavior but instead to deal with it so we save their soul from hell!  The fear of the Lord keeps me away from wanting what sinners seem to acquire.  
 
23 Buy truth, and do not sell it; buy wisdom, instruction, and understanding.
 
I am grateful that drinking alcohol has not been part of my life for many years.  What is the purpose for Believers and what good or profit does it bring?  
 
Ephesians 3
The Gospel is available to all without any favoritism of God.  Many years ago when I sought the Lord as to His call on my life, He gave me Ephesians 3:7-12.  I can only minister His Gospel through His grace and the working of His power by the Holy Spirit in me.  It is through the church and the church only that “the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.  It is only by Yeshua Messiah.  Faith in Him brings boldness, and access to Him with confidence.  Thank You Lord that You strengthen Your Believers by the Spirit in our inner most beings.  Thank You that You give us the revelation by this strength to know the depth, breadth, length and height of You and Your faithful love towards us so we can be filled with the fullness of You.  
 
20 Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
 
Meditate & Apply: God always desires increase of good in my life.  I am to continue to learn from God all things that He has for me to know of Him.  Truth, wisdom, knowledge and understanding of the Lord are the greatest of all assets I could possible “buy”.  It is by partaking of the ministry at church that we gain much of what the Lord has for us.  The Lord gives an inner strength that brings me all I need for myself and to minister to others.  I can do all things through Messiah who truly does strengthens me.
