A couple of years ago, my wife planted plants in our backyard. Because the massive oak tree creates so much shade, most of the plants didn’t grow. One of the plants she transplanted to the front yard, and it exploded. Now we have to figure out how to prune it back and keep it the correct size. You can grow where you are planted as long as your life is full of the Son of God.
“But the sons of Israel were fruitful and increased greatly, and multiplied, and became exceedingly mighty, so that the land was filled with them.”
God’s blessing has always been on Israel. It’s not to say there hasn’t been judgment for wicked behavior, but they have always benefitted from God’s provision. While they were in Egypt, they were fruitful and increased significantly in numbers. It got to the point that the Egyptians became afraid that Israel would be led by an enemy to turn on them. For a family that got to Egypt with around 70 people, it became a nation over four hundred years. To counteract this, Egypt mistreated them and made them into slaves making bricks for many of the cities and possibly Pyramids. Even during this treatment, they multiplied and flourished.
I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. Ephesians 4:1-3

Our Faith in Jesus Christ is a Daily Walk
The Apostle Paul used ‘walking” often in his writings, to refer to our journey with Christ. “Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time because the days are evil. Ephesians 5:15-16” Being a disciple isn’t a one-time event or something we do every once in a while, it is the daily interaction with Him. It is the step by step, one foot in front of the other walk that brings spiritual growth. It begins with the first step of salvation and continues daily by us walking with Christ.
Daily Scripture Reading is Essential to our Spiritual Growth
One of the most important ways that we walk with Jesus is to read our bible. Daily scripture reading is essential to our growth as a Christian and a daily devotion can help with that. Daily Walk Devotion is about helping you take your next step of faith.
It is that daily encouragement from scripture that will help you understand the Word of God and encourage you in your faith. Every weekday there will be a devotion posted on the website that is taken from scripture. Committing to reading your bible every day is a vital spiritual discipline. Adding a daily devotion to that can inspire and sustain you as you go about your day.
