The noble man in our Scripture Reading gave his servants ten pounds to trade with, while he left to a far country to receive a kingdom. One of the servants eventually made ten more pounds from the pound he was given. The potential (one pound) which that servant received led him to make a gain of ten more pounds. If he dared to trade more, the ten extra pounds would have gained more pounds. So the gain of that servant had the potential to yield more gain, and more gain.
Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: every gain you have made on the basis of your potential will yield more gain for you. Every progress you have made in your career, business, ministry, academics, vocation, etc will be a platform for more and more progress in time to come. Every door that God opens for you this year will be a harbinger of more open doors. Every gate that has been opened to you will yield more open doors.
Whatever has made you smile will bring more things that will make you smile again. Whatever opportunity that brought you accolades is a platform for greater and more rewarding opportunities. Whatever testimony that you received from God is just a beginning of greater works of God in your life. Whatever gain you have seen in the works of your hands is a potential for more gain that will set you ahead of your contemporaries.
Whatever the Lord has given you is a potential for more increase. If it is a gain that the Lord caused you to have, then it is a potential for you to gain more gains. If it is the Master that put it in your hands, it will open the gates for more to come into your hands. Every gain that has ever come your way is a potential for you to have more gain. Every gate of opportunity you have received is a potential for more gates to open to you.
Your gains will gain you more gains. Your increase will birth more increase.
