Increment means a process of becoming larger or longer or more numerous or more important. Increment is a way of multiplication, growing and expansion. The source of our increment is God and He has proved it in many ways.
Gen 1:22 says, “And God blessed them saying, Be fruitful, multiply and fill the waters in the seas and let the fowl multiply on earth.”
In the beginning, God blessed man and animal to increase and multiply in all areas on earth. Increment is from God. It is an authority from Him that we should increase in all areas of our lives: physically, spiritually, financially and many more.
