For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His Kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. (Is 9:6-7)
Believers do business from a position of divine authority as agents of the biblical promise of increase. As His people we are to occupy, understanding what the will of the Lord is. We are governors and tutors who advance the Kingdom with prayer and righteous living. As blessing carriers, we are His government on earth—demonstrators of increase for blessing and benefit for the whole world.
Father, we pray for Your government in everything to go ahead of us and open the way of increase and peace. We see Your government established in places of influence, granting promotion where You choose! Lord, send Your government ahead of us, as forerunner for us: Crooked paths, be straight: rough places, be smooth!
