1 Corinthians 3:6 ” I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God made it grow.
The Scene: 1) The Creator. God’s outstretched hand: represents His command “GROW!”
God allows, sometimes brings trouble into people’s lives so they will grow in maturity. For the Christian, it is so we will grow in spiritual maturity. For non-Christians, it is so they can come into the faith.
Hebrews 6:1 ” Therefore let us leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go on into maturity, not laying again the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death and of faith in God,”
God wants people to grow in Him by trusting in Him, as we pass through the storms of our lives. Storms that show us God’s awesome power and makes us aware of who He is, through Christ Jesus our Savior.
Isaiah 43:2-3,5 “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze ” For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior; Do not be afraid , for I am with you;
We are called and have to do our part,”GROW!”
James 1:4 ” Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”
When we put our hand into God’s hand He will make us grow! Read Psalm 121
