True spiritual growth will always result in a greater realization of our weakness and a greater dependence upon God's strength.
The one constant factor in a chaotic world is that the Lord is faithful. He will never fail His people in character, decree, works, or word.

Food & water are absolutely essential to physical life. The daily reading of Scripture & prayer are absolutely essential to spiritual life.
