On January 16, 2016, I was reading Our Daily Bread which mentioned spiritual growth. God dropped this in my spirit: From Milk to Meat…
Babes in Christ can only handle the soft things of this walk with God. But as you grow spiritually, you must eat the meat of the Word. You will be challenged to digest correction, face opposition, receive deeper spiritual instruction to increase your faith and spiritual resiliency. If you are still asking God to fill you with His Holy Spirit, where is your keeping and saving power? He said to ask and it will be given to you. Put down the bottle and accept the continuous indwelling of His Spirit and move on to the next level…MEAT! The spiritual battle is real…you need the fortitude of His armor and Spirit to discern both good and evil while contending for the faith.
12 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. 13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. 14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
