Daily Devotions : Pride and self-confidence are threats to spiritual growth. VIDEO…

 

Philippians 1:5-7Each Christians journey is unique. Yet certain stages of growth should be common to all of Gods children. For example: The Lord wants to teach new followers basic principles as a foundation on which to build. He expresses these truths through other believers, His Word, and life circumstances. God allows us to serve Him. We were created to do good works, and this becomes evident as Christians glorify Jesus (Eph. 2:10).

 The Lord lets us experience frustrated inadequacy. Pride and self-confidence are threats to spiritual growth. Therefore, our Father brings us to the place where we realize we can achieve nothing of value without divine guidance and power.

 To make freedom a reality, the Father brings His children face to face with whatever holds them captive. We often carry hurts, fears, or other baggage and on our own have no idea how to gain victory. God allows us to struggle through such issues with His help. As we surrender to Him and seek His perspective, He works to liberate us.

 The Lord teaches us how to live the changed life (Gal. 2:20). Our sinful nature has been crucified with Christ, and the Saviors life is expressed through us as we surrender to the Holy Spirits influence.

Do you recognize these stages as you look back over your walk with Christ? Perhaps you can identify an area where God still needs to work in your life. Is there anything standing in the way of allowing Him to live fully through you? Surrender to the Holy Spirit, asking Him to help you become more like Jesus.
