Wisdom Tip: Recognize the Growth

I received a wonderful reminder while reading one of my favorite devotionals entitled, My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers. I am often in awe of the profound truth found in this devotional primarily because it was written so long ago before all the tools we have available today to study the bible were available. The author’s grasp of God’s word amazes me.

We so often evaluate our lives based on what we have not yet accomplished, but what about all that you have accomplished. You are both stronger and wiser. Sure you’ve made some mistakes, we all have but we’ve learned valuable lessons that we now carry with us and can use to encourage others and help them avoid some of the mistakes we’ve made.

Compare where you are now in your spiritual life with where you were this time last year to see how God has called you to a higher level. Live up to the truth God is showing you. He states, “Your growth in grace is not measured by the fact that you haven’t turned back, but that you have an insight and understanding into where you are spiritually.” You may not be where you want to be, but surely you can thank God you’re not where you use to be.

 

 

God is doing a great thing in and through you...recognize it!

 

 

Have an Awesomely Blessed day!
