1 Peter 2:2 (KJV)As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby.
Joel who had just accepted the Lord Jesus Christ joined a Church to fellowship. After a few months of joining the Church, he expected that certain key responsibilities be given to him, but none was assigned to him. He became angry and planned to leave the Church. While pondering on this, he heard a preacher preach on today’s text and this changed him. He realized he was still a spiritual infant that was still in need of maturity before he could handle responsibility.
As a new believer, what is required of you if you must grow properly is that you sit down to study and learn the word of God. It is the word that will keep you from sinning and guide you to the path of greatness in God.
Psalm 119:11 and 105 (KJV) reads ‘Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee’ and ‘thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path’.
For you not to walk in darkness, you need light. The word of God is this light. It is after you must have acquainted yourself with the word of God and be transformed by it that you would be ready to handle positions of responsibility in God’s house. But until then, study the word of God until you have shown yourself approved unto God(see 2 Tim 2:15). Once God approves of you, he will announce you himself.
Go into today making up your mind to study and learn the word of God instead of fighting for positions.
Pray this way: Father I desire to know you more than I desire positions. Reveal Yourself to me as I study and learn your word in Jesus’ name. Amen.
