If you have been a follower of Jesus Christ for longer than one year, that means that from this time last year until now, you have had 365 days to grow in spiritual maturity. As you consider that fact, how would you evaluate your rate of spiritual growth this past year?
Maybe it has been a good year for you. You feel a closer walk with God today than you did at this time last year. You see God working in your life and things are happening that encourage you as you see answers to prayer.
But maybe you are not seeing progress. Things are stagnant, or even regressing, instead of progressing.
Whichever direction you went is the result of how you spent your time on a daily basis this past year. If it has been your habit to rise early and seek God, you’ve likely made progress. If that is not the case, purpose to change your routine, so next this time next year, you will see progress because you redeemed the time.
