At a point in our Christian race we are called babies, at another point we are enjoyed to grow from infant to maturity. When we are babies we drink milk as time goes on we are encourage to eat the strong meat.

From the farmers point of view, growth of various crop takes different time, but it has been observed that those with slow growth often have a good growth as a result they yield good fruit/product.

Bring it down to our growth in Christian race, when we first came to Christ through salvation, a lot of sinful nature step out, however is good to know that deep changes takes place in our life as we continual spend time in the world of God, it helps to shape our life style, develop our faith and stabilizes our Christian walk.

You don’t need to be angry at yourself at the rate of your growth or compare yourself to another but you must continual make sincerely effort to grow into maturity. As you are saved to save others.

Beloved, join us to discover more:

Slow Growth—Good Growth

But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.—2 Peter 3:18

Resentment poisons the one who holds it. Think how free of resentment our Lord was. His “first word” from the cross shows how He dealt with any possible temptation to be resentful. I believe that He was as free to walk away from Calvary as he was to walk away from the cliff-edge above Nazareth. He accepted death. Sin and love were in decisive battle. Had He drawn back, sin would have won. And He who lives in us can love in us—if we let Him.

We must allow time for change. Change is more often than not a process. I want to emphasize this because many, when once they see the way out of their dilemma, want change to take place too quickly. Some changes in our lives take place quickly. The night I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ, a lot of my sinful habits left me. But some didn’t, and the process of change was long and tedious. Deep healing and supernatural change can take place in a moment, but often it takes months of struggle, trial and error, learning and unlearning.

All of us have different timetables when it comes to growing, and no one should judge another’s timetable. There is an assumption that when God is involved, then all change will be instantaneous. It can happen that way, but be prepared also for it to take place over a period of time. A gardener friend of mine says: “Slow growth is good growth.” It is the same in the garden of the soul.

Prayer          

Father, help me to be content with Your timetable for my spiritual growth. Sometimes I want to grow more quickly than is good for me. Help me be patient with Your patience. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

What do we grow in?

Compare spiritual growth to a tree’s growing.

Beloved, a farmer who wants a good produce spends time tilling the ground and cultivating a good seed and making the ground fertile and rich for the seed he is about to cultivate. Likewise we must spend time in studying the Word of God and making it take root in your life that way, you will nourish your body and soul and you will useful in God’s kingdom work.

Praise the Lord! Hope you have had a good time-out with us, looking forward to wonderful weekend but don’t forget our Praise gate tomorrow, come let the Lord beautiful your life and decorate you too.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
