And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ. I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal. For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men?

I Corinthians 3:1-3 NKJV

Continued from yesterday…

You can’t be of maximum use to God if you do not grow spiritually. There are certain errands we don’t send kids, because they are not mature enough to execute them. No matter how eager they are or how willing they are. When my little niece was three years old she always wanted to help with house chores and when she was told that she couldn’t, she would cry herself to sleep. On one of such occasions she insisted on doing the dishes in the kitchen and her mum told her she couldn’t. Then she reminded her mum, “but mum you told me I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me.” The mother stood in amazement and finally responded, “Yes you can do all things through Christ, when you are mature enough to handle it.”

You see when you quote God’s Word to Him, He points you to the place of growth. You need to grow spiritually, you need to grow in your walk with God, and you need to grow in following God in order to be trusted with certain levels of assignments in life. God may plant the seed of a dream in your heart; to lead a great nation, to build an economic empire, to build a great ministry etc. Whatever it is, growth is required to stand in it. For unto us a child is born, but the child must grow into a son to be released unto us to serve the Father’s purpose. 

Your lack of spiritual growth is delaying your entrance into the fullness of your inheritance in Christ. The world is not waiting for babes of God, but sons of God – men and women who are fully formed in the things of the Spirit. They are the ones who will manifest the incomparable wisdom and power of God.
