Abiding Above Devotionals

Helping those at different places in their spiritual journeys experience the love and acceptance of Jesus Christ

Spiritual Growth

June 23


“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.” - Ephesians 1:3

The Christian life is a process. It is a life of faith, and there is going to be time involved. There will be seasons of time in our lives when our spiritual growth will be slow and times when it will be quick. God does not always hurry in the development of our Christian life and He is not bound by time. He is working in light of eternity and He uses time from an eternal perspective so you have to be patient.

Those who are deeply spiritual will be the ones who have made up their minds that they are going to stick with the Word of God, love other people, and allow Him to live his life through them. Keep moving forward and more and more you will begin to see all that God has given you at the moment of your salvation.

Keep the main thing the main thing, get into God’s Word and do not rush ahead.
