The seed doesn’t grow until its uncomfortable under the soil. A pregnant lady has to face the discomfort of labour before going home with a baby. Throughout life, the principle is established. Before growth, someone/thing has to be uncomfortable!
The principle of strength in numbers rings true for every Christian. Scripture says where there is unity; one shall chase a thousand, and two ten thousand (Leviticus 26:8; Deuteronomy 32:30). Each part of Christ’s body cannot function in isolation!

I could make plans, but God is in charge of their outcome. My mere human efforts could never bring about the fulfilment of God’s promises in my life. Abraham and Moses learnt this the hard way and so did I.
