I was doing my morning prayer time today and I kept thinking about the word grow. As I reflected I used the letters of grow as an acrostic to help me/us to keep growing in our faith.
G – God first. We need to continue to seeking first God’s Kingdom and His righteousness (Matthew 6:33)
R – Reach out. We need to continue to reach out with God’s love and saving message through Jesus (John 3:16)
O – Offer ourselves. We need to continue to offer ourselves as living sacrifices to God for His service (Romans 12:1-2)
W – Walk in His ways. We need to continue fear the Lord and walk in God’s ways (Psalm 128:1)
This simple acrostic can give us some things to help us grow in our faith. If we keep mindful of these four things we will keep moving forward in our faith.
Dear God, I want to continue to grow in my faith and trust in You. Please help me to put You first, reach out to others, offer myself to You and walk in Your ways. I ask in Jesus name, Amen.
