Day 10 of Prayer & Fasting - Pray for Growth in Christ
Colossians 2:7 Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.
All growth that is not toward God is growing to decay. - George Macdonald
Sunflowers are beautiful flowers that start off as tiny sprouts. The reason sunflowers are called sunflowers is because they follow the sun. The sun rises in the east, the sunflower will point east. The sun sets to the west, and the flowers will point west. These flowers throw off a lot of seeds. They are productive because they are always looking for the sun. They always locate the s-u-n, and because they always are looking for the s-u-n, they’re always growing.”
“When you and I look for the S-o-n, like the sunflower looks for the s-u-n, then we will find the effects of His rays softening our hearts so we can throw off new seed, new life. It is our response to the Word that determines our productivity. Abiding in our relationship with the S-o-n will result in the transformation and growth that many Christians are looking for.
1. Are you growing toward God or toward decay?
2. Are you looking for the S-o-n every day?
