Faith like many things in life doesn’t start old, mature and at the peak of its capacity. Most things on the planet like life, start small and get growing until they reach their full capacity. Several years ago we got a lovely puppy for the family that was so cute and precious everyone loved her. The kids kept her indoors at all times, cuddled her, played with her and just spoilt her. Every guest that came through the house adored her and wanted to just pick it up. That puppy started growing and literary got out of control. In less than a year she weighed more than 70 kg and became the terror of the community. Visitors had to call in advance to come through while strangers avoided going past our gates. The cute little puppy had grown into a serious, vicious guard dog. The key here is that it grew.
Your faith also needs to keep growing through the various seasons of life. It may be small and little today but it has the capacity to grow into something awesome and amazing, doing great things in the Lord. Everything that grows needs to be fed so feed your faith everyday. It also needs to be exercised on daily so get your faith busy working on some specific things. Growth means direction without which growth would be destructive. Grow your faith in a specific direction that will glorify God. Growth also means you have given time and that is why in the natural we count years. And finally every thing that grows need protection. Many things try to kill the good things we have, so we must protect them at all costs. Grow your faith in Jesus.
SCRIPTURE READING: Hebrews 5:12-14 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need [someone] to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food. For everyone who partakes [only] of milk [is] unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, [that is,] those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Heavenly Father, am grateful for teaching me how to grow in faith, amen.
