God Enjoys The Process of Our Growth

Take a moment and ponder the process God designed for our growth. This 1-minute devotion uses a wonderful analogy. Enjoy! #BibleLoveNotes #Bible

I was watching my grandchildren play when my granddaughter climbed to the top of the slide for the first time. She was bursting with excitement at her accomplishment. 

It was fun to share this little moment with her.

Suddenly it struck me: God enjoys those little moments with us as well.

God could mature us instantly. Or He could send us straight to heaven when we accept Him as Lord. 

But God created a process of growth we call sanctification. Sometimes it's tough, but there are also wonderful moments of excitement, moments we can acknowledge and enjoy. 

Just as we experience joy when our children learn to walk, talk, tie their shoes or make it to the top of the slide, God enjoys our spiritual growth (Psalm 147:11 and Zephaniah 3:17).

We are truly “God’s workmanship” (Ephesians 2:10).

Let's give Him reason to rejoice today.

  2. Oh, I love this point. Funny how as a mom of 5 I delight in watching my children grow, but as a woman of 39 years, I often long to skip the growing process and just experience immediate and complete transformation. Thanks for your wisdom today!
