The Light Daily Devotional – Your growth in Life
Focus: Your growth in Life
WORD FOR TODAY
Life does not take you up like a ladder; rather, it grows like a tree. To have the life God desires for you, you must go through a process and obey God completely!
“Let your roots grow down into him and draw up nourishment from him, so you will grow in faith, strong and vigorous in the truth you were taught. Let your lives overflow with thanksgiving for all he has done” Colossians 2:7 NLT
There is a process you must go through and instructions you must follow at all times if you want to be everything God wants you to be. We saw the steps Joseph took to make his dreams come true. It is not a crime to dream big, but it is a crime to ignore or boycott the process. God used the hands of men to change three sets of cloth in Joseph’s life:
1. The cloth of his familiar ground was removed by his brother to usher him into slavery.
2. Potiphers’ wife removed the slaves’ clothing in order to usher him into the prison.
3. Pharaoh removed the prisoners’ cloth to usher him into the palace.
Overall, each process brought him closer to God’s plan for his life because he cooperated with God by obeying Him. All great men did not achieve their status overnight. It takes many years for King David to ascend to the throne. Even if you begin to sense God’s plan for your life, the only way to grow and learn is to go through the various processes God has prepared for you in destiny.
+ Do you submit your life to various processes meant for your growth?
Prayer: Lord! Help me to submit to various processes meant for my growth and obey you absolutely in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Emphasis: You must grow through the various processes meant to validate your obedience to God to have the life He wants to give you.
Have a Wonderful Thursday!
