You have to make a selection first before you can grow a selection.

R-Click on the text layer and choose "Alpha to Selection".
Make sure to add another layer and select it to fill the selection. You
won't be able use that selection on your text layer unless you R-Click
on the text layer and choose "Discard Text Information" first. This
means you won't be able to edit the text any further though.
