Early Sunday morning, I was up watching a sermon by TD Jakes. He was teaching about blind Bardimaeus and how Jesus healed him and restored his sight. Little did I know, my youngest son was listening also. He had that a curious look on his face as he listened. I knew what was coming next, YES lots of questions! He is a very wise and curious little boy. He asked, “Momma was I blind when I was baby?” I replied, “No, son you were not born blind.” Just when I thought that was all he wanted to ask, he continued, “Momma, how did I grow from being a baby?” I replied, “When you were a baby you fed on my breast milk. Next, when you were able to sit up on your own and crawl, you fed on solids and breast milk. Once you were about a year old and was able to stand and walk, you no longer had to have my breast milk. You were eating table food. Now look at you, you are eating meat!
It’s amazing how the Holy spirit used my conversation with my son to remind me of my walk with him. He encouraged me to keep growing spiritually! I’m also encouraging YOU. You may be a baby in Christ right now, only drinking milk. At times you may not feel saved or worthy because of immaturity. But, it’s ok, you may have to be nurtured at this stage, but allow God to perfect those things that concern you (Psalms 138:8). Remain faithful in your walk. You will soon be able to crawl and sit up on your own. You will start to read bible scriptures and remember them. Next, you will be able to eat solids. As you continue to mature and grow, you will be able to pull your own self up and be able to stand with some help. At this stage you will be able to apply scriptures to your every day life. Finally, you will be able to eat meat! You will be able to really dig in and stay in the word of God. Your faith will definitely increase like never before. You will be fruitful as you walk out the word of God.
As you know, life can be unpredictable. To add, sometimes it gets hard, but don’t give up. Keep growing and continue to ask God for strength. Most importantly, don’t get weary in well doing!
Verse of meditation:
Galatians 6:9 (NLT)
So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.
