The time has come to be practical, it is not enough to know. Action is what happens on the other side of the Kidron Valley. We are a people with a mission and on a mission. The Lord expects us to come forward, do that which we have been professing.
God has a secret place and anyone who steps in there and stay, there will be growth. There are things that God gives to everyone but there are things He gives to those who are in His secret place.Jesus Christ is the perfect place for growth. We must hide ourselves in Jesus Christ. Drivers of spiritual growth, 1. Prayer, 2. Meditation (Gen. 24:63), 3. Solitude (Gen. 32:25). Growth is two dimensional - spiritual and physical. Growth is a positive change. We need to assess ourselves and check how much change is in the positive direction.
For you to grow spiritually you need to :
1. Have a spiritual life: a life of communication to the Lord, a life of prayer, a life of reading the word and a life of practising the word.
2. Learn to walk by the spirit: deliberately choosing to trust the Spirit of God and His prompting.
The missing link in our homes is the presence of God – When you come in the presence of the Master in faith, He knows exactly the needs that you have. 3 Observations in Families: 1. Prayerlessness in families - compromises the core value of the church. 2. Conflict in families (result of prayerlessness) - conflict that leads to unacceptable behaviours in Christian families. 3. Lack of the study of God in families - train children the way of the Lord.
