Journey to Maturity – Own Your Growth

“Precious Lord, take my hand. Lead me on. Let me stand.” That’s a great song. If you don’t know it, look it up.

There are some great stories about how this particular hymn has blessed so many lives. But take a close look at that third sentence: “Let me stand.” Sometimes we take Jesus for granted. We feel He’s taken care of everything, and we’re just along for the ride. True, He has taken care of everything and will still keep doing that.

But it is up to us to follow. It is up to us to learn how to follow Him. He has given us the resources to keep us motivated towards His goal for us. He is offering His hand to you. So don’t just allow Jesus to drag you along. Stand.
