Grow without effort

In the natural world the word Growth is very common because everything in this world has a growth factor.  When growth stops, death starts. Wherever you find growth you will also find that there is progression in growth.  I believe that there is no Growth without progression and there is no progression without Growth.

It is the law of nature that whatever has life will grow. Look at the tree, it grows day by day without making any effort. You never find a tree exercising so that the branches will grow and become strong.  You will never see a puppy going to school to learn barking. But it will grow, It will become what it is made for.

When we look into the human world we can see some amount of growth happening to us too, without putting any kind of effort.  A baby will learn  the language without going to school and he will learn the systems and culture just by living in the community. There are  lot  of areas in which we can grow without putting an effort. In the same way without putting much effort we can Grow  spiritually too.

There are a few areas which is very important so that we can Grow in our life. We need to understand that our 'Seed' as mentioned in  1 Peter 1:23.Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. Here it is mentioned that Our seed has life and it will Grow. This Seed is the Word of God. It is not corruptible or perishable hence it will grow.

Our ground where we are planted- It is true that God will plant us in the right place where we can grow. As for me it will begin with your authorities. Because God created everything and has kept it under authority. When God created the world He gave the charge to Adam to rule over it.

Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." - Genesis 1:26 though this word means to rule, it never means to destroy it. The ruler is to take care and make necessary changes so that everything can function perfectly.

It was wonderful and functioning even though God put everything under the authority of Adam. So being under your spiritual authorities is the best way to grow even without your knowledge.

When the word says authorities we may never understand what they will invest in our lives.  If a kid is getting the right food at right time he will grow without his knowledge and permission. In the same way when you allow your spiritual authorities to invest in your life you will have a definite growth.

Hebrew 13;17 says Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.

Your spiritual association- This is a very important factor, Your environment can support your growth.  Living in a spiritual community will give you some or more amount of atmosphere to grow spiritually. So the right association and positioning yourself in the right environment can boost your spiritual growth. That will influence your mind and bring in a lot of impact.  A bad environment not only can kill your growth  but also can also destroy your process of Growth.

What you need to do.

Find out who are the people whom God has placed above you, people in authority and stay connected with them. If you think submitting to your authorities will not give you anything, you cannot see any growth in your life, you may feel you are wasting your time but that will take you to next level.

They may be investing the seeds in your life which will grow later and they will keep you  protected until your season comes. God may be training you so that you can become more beautiful. You may feel you are broken but always understand that  when they brake you, you will  multiply. "Stay faithful". That is the key word which I would like to emphasise on.

Understand the association and choose your surroundings where you can grow. The key word will be "position yourself" in the atmosphere where you can grow.
