Growing in What We Believe

“We learn to believe by believing… The practice of acting on a certain thing, even (or especially) when feeling is absent, embodies the entire ‘how’ of growth.” Eugenia Price

Growing is difficult. How do we grow in what we believe? By acting on what we believe even when we don’t feel like it.

“Therefore we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it.” Hebrews 2:1

If we don’t grow closer to God, we’ll find ourselves drifting away. The next couple of verses in Hebrews talks about if we neglect this great salvation—if we choose not to deepen our walk with Christ, we will receive punishment.

God promises in James 4:8 that if we draw near to Him, He will draw near to us.

There’s so much more of God that He wants to teach us. He desires us to grow in Him because only then will we obtain true joy.

“Eternity will never be long enough to learn all He is, or to praise Him for all He has done, but then, that matters not; for we shall be always with Him, and we desire nothing more.” A W Tozer
