God Makes Us Grow

Referring to Jerusalem, the Lord explained how He made the city grow and become beautiful, “‘I made you thrive like a plant in the field; and you grew, matured, and became very beautiful. Your breasts were formed, your hair grew, but you were naked and bare. When I passed by you again and looked upon you, indeed your time was the time of love; so I spread My wing over you and covered your nakedness. Yes, I swore an oath to you and entered into a covenant with you, and you became Mine,’ says the Lord GOD” (Ezekiel 16:7-8).
Using the imagery of a woman, the Lord explained how He helped her to mature, but she later used what He did for her to go after other gods, and for that she would pay dearly.
He has blessed you also. How are you using His blessings? How are you using what He has made you to be?
