I am giving you a choice in how to live and what spiritual doors to step through so you may grow into maturity. I am teaching you to shut some doors and push open others.
Maturity is found in me, Jesus. I have given you life and entrusted you with other people. It’s time to go higher than you’ve been before, to stand on other’s ceilings. Do not be shocked when I call you to this. Do not make do with where you are now. There is always more, for mine is an unshakable and unlimited kingdom.
Ask me how this can happen, and I will answer with details. Bring to me any unrest, fears, things that rile you or produce unholy responses in your heart, and start pushing through into greater maturity.
Prayer: Holy Spirit, take me forwards, untangle my thoughts and heart spiritually and emotionally. Give me determination and diligence to grow into maturity, whatever it takes.
Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.Proverbs 4:23 (NIVUK)
Do you see what we’ve got? An unshakable kingdom! And do you see how thankful we must be? Not only thankful, but brimming with worship, deeply reverent before God. For God is not an indifferent bystander. He is actively cleaning house, touching all that needs to burn, and he won’t quit until it’s all cleansed. God himself is fire!Hebrews 12:28-29 (MSG)
