PROCESS OF GROWTH
What grows from the ground and flourishes is firmly planted and cared for. Once the seeds are planted, the roots begin to grow under the ground before we even see life above ground. This process takes time and patience. But soon we begin to see new life from what was once a seed and are grateful for this process. God has a process of growth for us. He wants our lives to be built on Him. He wants our faith to be strong in Him. He wants us to know the truth and to be grateful for who He is and all He does.
Colossians 2:7 “Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, we know You have a process of life for us and we are very grateful. We know we have the option to commit our life to You, study Your word and allow the Holy Spirit to work through us so we can grow strong in Your truth and we will overflow with thankfulness. Thank You for the process of growth You have given to us. Help us Lord everyday to be obedient to You and grow in this process so we can help others as You have instructed us to do. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
