Isaiah 28:9-10 (KJV) “Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little”
“Danny, you can’t attend that party, you’re just a child. Besides, I don’t like such gatherings, it may be harmful to you” Mrs. Wood said.
“Mum, I’m no longer a child, I’m an adult. I am eighteen remember? You, therefore, should give me some space” Danny replied.
In the world, adulthood means more freedom or independence. The older a child gets, the freer he becomes, and his parent’s input in his decision-making gradually wanes. But it is not so in the kingdom of God, the direct opposite is the case. In the kingdom, the more mature you get, the more dependent on God you have become. Actually, your rank in God is a function of how dependent on Him you are.
For Danny, his proof of maturity manifested in his ability to have an opinion contrary to his mother’s opinion and refuse his mother’s opinion. For sons of God, it is their inability to take a step when God has not given the instruction to do so that shows that they have been weaned.
A mature child or son of God will do what God says he should do, will not do what He says he should not do and even more, he will not do what God has not asked him to do. This man cannot act unless he hears from God. And if he does not hear, he sticks to the last instruction and keeps waiting on God for a new one.
For sons, it must be precept upon precept and line upon line, here a little and there a little, for it is them that are led by the spirit of God that are the sons of God (Romans 8:14).
Go into today Knowing that the life you have been called into is a life of dependence and trust in the Lord. The more dependent on God you get, the more of Him you will know and experience.
Prayer: Pray for grace to surrender absolutely to God.
