Hebrews 5:13-14 (KJV) For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
Paul noticed that Peter had achieved more for God than him, although they both received Jesus Christ as their savior and Lord at the same time. They also were exposed to similar exercises of praying, Bible study, fasting, etc. Although there were more prophecies regarding how God intends to use Paul in the future, Peter’s achievements for God were overwhelming. Noticing this, Paul took time to study Peter and discovered that Peter always practiced what he learned from the Bible. Because of this frequent practice, Peter became more fruitful.
Many young believers today have had several prayer retreats; some lasting months from which they’ve had mind-blowing encounters and instructions. It is rather sad though that most of such encounters and instructions ended on the pages of dairies and jotters but were never manifested because the recipient did not engage them.
You are admonished today to use what you have received from the Lord. It is by use or practice that you manifest whatever gift you have received and it is this manifestation that profits the kingdom of God.
Go into today knowing that encounters are primers. They are sent by God to stir you into action but if not acted upon, they become useless.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, help me to begin to use all that you have deposited in me for the profiting of your kingdom.
