God gives the increase – Philippians 2:10-13, Proverbs 16:1-, Proverbs 16:9
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out (effect or achieve) your own salvation (safety, preservation) with fear and trembling.
13 For it is God which worketh (to form by labor) in you both to will (the emotional will to do) and to do (work) of his good pleasure.
Proverbs 16:1-3, Proverbs 16:9
