Living in relationship with God puts us into a greenhouse environment for our growth.
“God can do anything, you know-far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, His Spirit deeply and gently within us.” Ephesians 3:20-21
God can do anything, change anything in the landscape of our lives. He doesn’t do it by bullying us into changing. He does it by His Spirit-He works deep in us, gently refining and pruning, exposing lies and bringing healing truth. He plows the soil of our hearts and plants His truth in us. His love for us, His care for us is like a greenhouse for us to grow and mature in. He brings…He is, the ultimate environment for us to grow to become exactly what He has created us to be!
“Daddy, thank You that You bring so much life, warmth, protection, and potential for growth into my life! Thank you that I can trust You to prune in the right places, fertilize at the right time, move me from an unprotected place to a place that’s better for me to grow in. Thank You for the promise that You make everything beautiful in it’s time! I want my life to be a witness to Your goodness and grace.”
