Just like the seeds that become plants, our growth as a Christian is orchestrated by God. Seeds grow because that’s how God made them. God’s vision for you is to become more and more like Christ. When He called us to follow him, He put it in our hearts the passion to become more like Jesus. And as we follow Him, that is what He will continue to do to us.
You and I cannot make anything grow. We can provide the proper condition and nourishment, but after that, our power is over. Things grow because God made them to and it is according to His will. Ultimately, we must let God be in charge.
7 So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. 1 Corinthians 3:7
