Topic: Grow Up! [Wednesday August 2, 2017]
“Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all but is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father.;” Galatians 4:1-2 (KJV)
As long as you remain a child, you cannot access your rightful position and take authority over situations that confront you. Many Christians today are too lazy. They are too lazy to read or study the scripture. They are too lazy to commit the scriptures to memory. Too lazy to wake up and pray in the night. Even when they pray, they can only go for a few minutes and they are tired. How do you access the spiritual blessings that have been made available for you if all you do is struggle with your spiritual growth? God has given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness. His intention is for you to walk and live in victory as sons according to His good pleasure. He does not intend for you to be a baby that will be spoon-fed all your life.
I encourage you to take advantage of that which God has made available for you. Rise up today and take your rightful place. Hear the Word! Listen to the Word, Speak the Word! Eat the word until it becomes a part of you. Use the Word of God like a carpenter uses his tools. A carpenter knows when to use his hammer or chisel. He has a mastery of his tools and the same applies to you if the Word is to produce results for you.
Build up your faith in God. Live your life according to his word and make the Word of God your watchtower. Soak yourself in it. Grow in your relationship and listen for His voice. God is still speaking today so don’t let the enemy occupy your mind with noise. If your life is empty of words, then don’t expect the manifestation of your desires to just fall in your lap like a bag of cherries. Let the Word of God continually be your mirror so that you can stand blameless before Him in love. Always remember that His Word concerning your life is settled. Believe it! It shall come to pass.
