Are you progressing in your faith?
Exodus 3-6, 1 Tim 2, James 1:13-16 – Are you progressing? In love? In understanding? In grace with others? We have a choice to progress or not. God uses the circumstances in our lives to help us progress and grow, but we can choose not to. In life, we can have situations and experiences that seem SO real and SO vivid, that they can seem MORE REAL than what we read in God’s word. That happens in our lives, but we MUST continue to believe. When the Israelites were in Egypt, it was very hard, but God was actually preparing them to go forward. In Pharaoh’s life, God tried to use the plagues to speak to him. However, Pharaoh chose to progress in a direction AGAINST God.
