DESIRE GROWTH (3)
Monday, 9 February 2015
“For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.” Hebrews 5:12 (KJV)
The Bible says there is an evil under the sun that proceeds from the ruler thereof. Folly is set in great dignity and I have seen servants ride on horses while Princes walk as servants on earth because of their ignorance. Why would Jesus come back to start binding the devil when I am here? Having the mind-set of being far above principalities is the kind of mind-set the believer should have. Did you know that the believer is invincible? To be invincible means to be hidden. No wonder the Bible says our lives are hidden in Christ while Christ is hidden in God. The devil has to go through God and Jesus before he can get to us.
The troubles of this life cannot touch you because you are a world overcomer. In fact, when you wake up in the morning and you are faced with temptation, declare to yourself:”I am invincible. I cannot be killed. I am encompassed with favour. I can never fail. There is a power at work in me, which makes the rulers of darkness to tremble. I am God’s powerhouse and a terror to the devil.” But to be all of this you have to grow up and stop being a baby.
The Bible says that at this time, when you ought to be mature, you are still expecting to be fed with a bottle. Everyone who is still taking milk is still a baby. Strong meat belongs to those who are mature. You have been in church for one, two, or three years and you are still a baby. Instead of tasting the power of the ages to come, you are still being told to pay your tithe and worship God. If you are still living in strife with your brother or sister, then you are a baby. You cannot access those things that God has for you. If you are still being told to forgive your brother or sister, you are still a baby. Haven’t you heard that wherever there is strife or envy the door is open for demons to operate?
Aim for the top in your Christian race. Don’t be a minimum. Be bold with what God has given to you. Anywhere you find yourself around the world, be bold with your Christian experience. Don’t cower or allow anything to push you down, for there is no condemnation for you since you are in Christ Jesus.
