As a child of God you need to show spiritual growth. Just a baby goes from drinking milk to eating baby food to table food; as a Christian we grow little by little in God’s word. He reveals or gives us knowledge a little at a time for our understanding. God gives us many reasons to seek Him.
Complete the chart by matching the scripture to its correct verse.
As you can see God’s word equals a strong foundation. Think back to Day 2, we looked at the men that did not seek God. They relied on other men rather than having a reliance on God. You cannot listen to the flesh. Romans 7:5 For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death. It always gets you into trouble. If you are not reading the scripture and seeking God; the Devil gradually creeps in. Your mind begins to play tricks on you.
Our mind needs to focus in one direction toward God. James 1:8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. Seeking God’s face and searching His word keeps your mind focused and free from the burdens of this world. We are to strive to have a mind like Christ.

You may have regrets for decisions that were made in your life, but knowing that you searched the scripture in order to seek God will never be a regret. His word does not come back void.
