Blessing is not a prosperity based on the work of a man/woman. Instead, the blessing we receive is the plan of God, given to us that we may increase and prosper in His sight, if we abide in His will. Considering we are His vessels, when we are blessed, we increase. Where there is an increase there’s the need for edification for more room. (Therefore, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you). We received our Salvation at the Cross. We are sanctified at the Cross. Henceforth we continue to be sanctified. That we may be edified. By learning or trials, nevertheless, by faith we abide that we may increase in His blessing.
