“As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby.” (1 Peter 2:2 KJV)
“Grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” (2 Peter 3:18 KJV)

Examples for us:

Moses – I will persevere in Your will, even against opposition.
Joshua – I will fight under Your leadership.
David – I will look to You, count on You, and join my heart to Yours.
