Have you ever felt overwhelmed with the Christian life? Have your attempts to please God left you exhausted and discouraged?
Sometimes I’ll encounter a person who seems to have a walk with God that is so far ahead of mine. Their life makes me want to hurry up and grow in order to enjoy God as much as they do. Can you relate?
The walk we desire to have with God is never achieved in one big jump, but step by daily step. Sanctification is a process and growth is on the installment plan, not cash-and carry. We have a say in how quickly we grow, but there is no way to skip to the head of the line to maturity overnight.
Psalm 30:14 says that God remembers that we are human. He is patient and full of compassion, so why should we be any less so with ourselves while we grow step by stumbling baby step?
