There is no growth without some pain and difficulty. Have you heard the expression, “No pain, no gain”?
Through struggles and difficulties, we grow. There is a process we must all go through to grow spiritually — to know God, to trust God, and to believe God enough to do His word. Processis defined as: a series of actions or steps taken in order to achieve a particular end, a natural phenomenon marked by gradual changes that lead toward a particular result, e.g., the processof growth.
We must willingly submit to God and His word. Then God goes to work to develop us and cause the gifts in us to be cultivated so He can use us to do His will. We must all know God is for us. He has a plan for all of us to help us. We must submit to Him.
We must all realize that just because we go through difficult times or experience struggles does not mean we have done something wrong. Maybe we have done something right. We can’t really grow unless we learn to believe God, go through some stuff, and toughen up.
So, let’s humble ourselves and watch grace grow and develop us.
Just a thought,
