John Ortberg, in his book, The Me I Want to Be says, “Because you have been created by God as a unique person, his plan to grow you will not look the same as his plan to grow anyone else. What would grow an orchid would drown a cactus.”
The worries and anxieties of life and the uncertainties of the future so easily distract and will always beg for our attention, but that doesn’t mean we have to give in to them.
The apostle Peter tells us at the very end of his second letter (2 Peter 3:10-18), to “be on your guard” and to “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord viagra barata.”
Growing in a relationship with Jesus doesn’t just happen by itself. Whether you’re a new Christian or you’ve been a Christian for a while, growing is easier said than done. There are days that we feel stuck or far away from God instead of closer to Him.
Rather than being concerned about when we will get through something, we can maintain focus on who promises to be with us through it all. Because Jesus is patient, He doesn’t give up on us. Because He is kind, He rescues us.
Our current circumstances are temporary, but God always has good for us. We can grow the most with Him as we walk with Him through our circumstances, step by step.
