Spiritual growth is a crucial part of life which no man can afford to joke with this is because man himself is a tripartite being. He is a Spirit with a soul and lives in a body therefore the need to grow spiritually is important in all forms of human endeavor.
But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
1 Corinthians 2:14-15
Just like when a child is born, he needs to be nurtured and well taken care of to enhance his growth physically in the same manner a Spirit man needs to be fed and needs to be well nurtured in order to bring him into full manifestation of his potentials or abilities.
As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:
1 Peter 2:2
Though growth is essential but we must understand that growth needs to happen in a proper way. How do we achieve this? For instance, when a child does not feed on the necessary nutrients, he needs for his full development we begin to see a form of abnormalities which are called diseases. Diseases are abnormalities that occur when the body does not get appropriate nutrients needed for proper growth and development and this in turn causes dis order in the body system. Examples of sickness that are caused by malnutrition includes; kwashiorkor, anemia and so on. There are countless of diseases that comes as a result of malnutrition of the human body.
A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. James 1:8
For a spiritual man, the Word is the key factor here. In the word of God is the full nutrients necessary for a full-grown spiritual man. The word of God contains all the energy giving, Spirit building, spiritual maintenance and helps us live a healthy life all round. Infact, we understand that by consistent in take of this word we are metamorphized or let me say we are changed from one degree or level of glory to another. A continuous intake of the word keeps you fit both spiritually and physically until you conform to the image of God’s dear son.
Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
1 Peter 1:23
It is therefore worthy of note that a spiritual man is a complete man just it is written, he that is above, is above all things, all circumstances, all situations of life and he is master of all things because he is above and he controls all things. So, feeding on the word is the most important thing you can do in life to make you a success on two legs. You become indomitable, indefatigable and unstoppable for the enemy no matter what comes your way.
Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
Therefore, today arise while it is still day and put on the complete amour, the complete dose and nutrients you need to fulfil life and destiny and take God’s word like your life depends on because it sure does. Don’t be like a natural man who cannot receive anything from God because of his unbelief. Remember in this kingdom, we believe to see. Just like what happened from the beginning, when the heavens and the earth was created. God said and he saw. The moment God said he saw the manifestation in the physical realm.
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
I want you to take note that out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks and a good man can only speak or produce what he has on the inside. You can never produce or birth forth what you don’t have on the inside of you.
A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things
When God speaks, he speaks what is on his inside. The Most High has seen it through the eyes of His spirit and he spoke the word into being and we see it come into manifestation.
And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. Genesis 1:3
He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthy, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.
He that receiveth his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.
For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.
