And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work. (2 Corinthians 9:8)

It’s not about your comfort, or having your wishlist delivered, or showing that ‘you’re the head and not the tail,’ nor even about you not suffering. It’s about you ‘abounding in every good work’. God doesn’t bless you just because you asked, nor simply for the sake of blessing you. No. God is always fulfilling his purpose. Everything God does is designed to lead to one ultimate goal, so you cannot be blessed just so that you’re blessed. Your blessing, you receiving it, every single last detail of it, including your testimony of it, is a detail, a necessary detail, in God’s plan for humanity. God doesn’t bless you just nje, but so that you might bless others, and they in their turn are blessed that they might bless others – and so on and so on hinc in caelum. When you do a good work you are inevitably blessing someone. That’s the point. That’s why God blesses you.

Sufficiency in all things, in all things, SO THAT you may abound in good works
