Hebrews 10:38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back,my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
You have been in this movement for long but the movement is not showing in your life; you have not come out of sin. You have much testimony to
give but it does not reflect in your life, you are still a babe.
Every year, you remain the same. There are things we should do; we want to take you higher and begin to speak great things about God but looking at you, you can't bear it; even up to this time.
Every little thing, you complain. Every little thing, you get offended. You cannot take rebuke; you cannot take discipline; you cannot take chastisement; then, you are still a babe.
You are not strong at all; you are too fragile to take the strong word. For ten years, you have not done your restitution even though you know how necessary it is to pave your way to heaven.
Yet you want God to take you higher. God does not promote such people. Promotion is spiritual. To sacrifice for Jesus?
Not you! You are a spiritual babe. Babes don't go to war, so how can you collect war medals?
Close your shop and let's go for evangelism, you say, “Ah pastor, close my shop? It is not like that oh; man must wack o.” Pastor does not know he is carrying children about. Yes, you are a child; that is why you think and behave like that.
You are not mature and you cannot go for war because children don't go for war. You cannot bear pain or endure suffering.
All you need is healing and deliverance: “Pastor pray for me; I'm dreaming bad dream.” Why won't you be dreaming bad dreams? Why won't witches and wizards be pursuing you in your sleep?
You should have outgrown that. You should have come to the point where witches and wizards are making noise and you just ignore them because you know they can do nothing. Come to that point of maturity and stop crying over every little thing. God expects you to grow up. You are worried because you have not married. That is a childish thought.
The difference between a mother and a child is that the mother can be sick and yet she will still enter the kitchen to cook for the family. But a sick child will climb the bed, fold his legs, and be crying. Grow up and be an adult in Christianity.
Thought for the day:
Grow up and stop being a spiritual babe.
Song for the day:
Am I a soldier of the cross, a follower of the Lamb…
Bible reading for the day:
Psalm 82-84; Romans 8:19-39
