I thank God for his instructions on a daily basis. It helps me to bloom.
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.
Keep hold of instruction; do not let go; guard her, for she is your
The Resource... The Word!
Keep Blooming Where God Plants You
Bible Reading: Philippians 1 :3-6
I am sure that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on that day when Christ Jesus comes back again. Philippians 1:6
SUPPOSE YOU WANT TO communicate to someone that he or she is totally special to you. You don’t say it with stinkweed. You don’t dial a florist and have a dozen dandelions delivered. You buy a gorgeous long-stemmed rose. Bigger and better yet, you buy a bunch of roses.
Why? Because roses are the crowning achievement of God’s work in the flower department. Here’s the surprise: A rose left to itself stays small and thorny. But with loving care from a gardener, the rose reaches its full potential.
Perfect as you are, you’re still not all you’re capable of becoming. There are some things you can do to let God train you to become all you are capable of becoming. These training tactics don’t increase your value as God’s child, but they prepare you to serve Christ in greater ways than you could ever dream. Try these:
REFLECT: Aren’t you grateful that God is always with you to help you grow to your til’ fullest potential?
PRAY: Pray through the above list. Ask God to empower your efforts.
