TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I have opened a door for you that no man can shut. Come up here! You are invited into better, more, and deeper. Do not fear change. Fear staying the same.
GROW INTO GOD
If you still think the same way about God that you did twenty years ago, you have wasted the past twenty years. “But Pastor Troy, God loves me just like I am.”
He sure does, but He also loves you way too much to leave you that way. It’s like parents treating their grown children like babies. You don’t tie your 23-year-old son’s shoes, do you? No.
It’s actually a curse to be an adult and act like a child. It’s also a curse to be an adult and be treated like a child. God loves you, but He made you to grow and progress.
You should have a developmental part of your life where you’re finding out God does tons of stuff that you didn’t know He did. It’s called upgrade and you qualify for upgrade through personal relationship and revelation of Jesus.
With each new level of relationship, you should be experiencing Him in tons of different ways that it wasn’t safe for you to experience Him in before. It’s that deep calling unto deep thing. The deeper you get into your knowledge and connection with Him, the further in over your head He’ll call you.
Have you had any new revelations about God – how He works in your life or something you’ve seen in the experience of someone around you? If not, stop playing it safe. Put away childish things and grow into God.
So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?” – Hebrews 13:6
