This printable provides one verse per day, throughout the month of March, for you (or you and your family) to read, contemplate, and pray.
From the compilation of these verses, we will see that growth is truly His work and yet simultaneously, our work as well.
He does the growing, the shaping, the molding.
We do the cooperating, the trusting, the yielding.
The apostle Paul acknowledged his need for growth when he stated that he had not arrived at his goal nor had he reached perfection. How true that is of us, as well! Is it any wonder that Epaphras is described as “always struggling in his prayers” for those in Colossae (Colossians 4:12), that they may stand firm in the will of God, mature and fully assured? What a great example for us, too, to pray for ourselves, our families, and anyone else whom the Lord places upon our hearts: that we (or they) would continue to grow in Him.
“We have only to be patient, to pray, and to do His will, according to our present light and strength, and the growth of the soul will go on. The plant grows in the mist and under clouds as truly as under sunshine. So does the heavenly principle within” (unknown).
