Multiplication, Wisdom, and Rest are the themes we keep hearing from the Lord. I believe these are themes for the entire TNSP family as well.
* Multiplication: “neither he who plants, nor he who waters is anything, but God who gives the increase”. As we are unprofitable servants who do that which is our duty to do, God makes the seed grow and gives it the body He chooses. He alone is the source and cause of true increase. Be obedient and God will multiply.
* Wisdom: “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom”; “teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom”; “the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy”. We want to do things God’s way and we want fruit that remains. Only Godly wisdom, not men’s ideas, can bring true results.
* Rest: Decide to rely on the finished Work of Christ, on the living Word of God, and on the Holy Spirit. Be anxious for nothing. Rejoice in the Lord always. Rejoice!
