“God wants you to grow up.” This is the way Day 23, How We Grow, begins. In this chapter we find that in order for God to work in us, we must work out; out of ourselves and work out into this world to fulfill our purpose. Growth is the goal, and we are never in a position in which we cannot grow.
We become whatever we are committed to.
We must be intentional about our spiritual growth and work at it. I especially liked how this chapter tells us that we cannot add anything to what God has already created. We can just grow and develop! This reading also gives us another important perspective, saying “The way you think determines the way you feel, and the way you feel influences the way you act.”
We try to change ourselves and our lives, when we should be focused on growing more into the life and the purpose that has been destined to us by God.
Ask Yourself: What is one area where I need to stop thinking my way and start thinking God’s way?
