Pastor Alan emphasizes the importance of nurturing and cultivating our faith through prayer, studying scripture, and engaging in meaningful spiritual practices. By planting the seed of faith, we create a foundation for growth and develop a deeper connection with God.

2. Allow Room for Your Roots to Grow

  • A crucial aspect of growing a healthy plant is providing enough space for the roots to spread and anchor securely. Similarly, in our spiritual journey, we must allow room for our faith to take root and establish a firm foundation. Pastor Alan encourages us to create space for introspection, prayerful reflection, and seeking wisdom from trusted spiritual mentors. By giving our faith room to grow, we strengthen our confidence and certainty in our relationship with God.

3: Cultivate Assurance Through Experience

  • As the seed sprouts and grows into a mature plant, it undergoes various stages of development. Likewise, our faith journey is characterized by seasons of growth, challenges, and personal experiences. Pastor Alan reminds us to embrace these moments and learn from them, cultivating a deep assurance through our encounters with God's faithfulness, provision, and guidance.

In conclusion, Pastor Alan Young's message on "How Do I Know For Sure?" encourages us to embark on a journey of faith, using the relatable analogy of planting a seed and allowing room for growth.
