"Growth is usually some simple form of something to a more complex form. With spiritual growth comes greater joy, fulfillment and abundance but also more clarity and understanding and sometimes challenges. (The challenges were always there but you couldn't see them in your fledgling state of faith)
The reality of spiritual growth never meant that there would necessarily would be less sorrow in life or less, pain. trials, tribulations or temptations.With increased growth comes more complex tasks. God gives no one any tasks to do that He has not thoroughly prepared them for. Of course that doesn't mean that you can't bite off more than you can chew, but it wasn't God putting the spoon in your mouth. If a task is greater than your capabilities then it is not from God.
the Word of God is explicit in all matters concerning spiritual growth. As youi grow and successfully fulfill what grace you have obtained, more and more grace will be added unto you for the advancement of the kingdom of God and for your own personhood.
