Walk in a manner worthy of the Lord.
Christian development is the consequence of deliberate steps to follow Christ. Every humble step closer to Jesus brings spiritual strength. “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness” (2 Cor. 12:9). Our greatest development is through the difficulties of life. God permits obstacles to be opportunities for obedience. When you “make no provision for the flesh,” difficulties will never be seen as distractions for development (Rom. 13:14).
Pray to find sufficiency in His grace.
