2017 – SATURDAY 4 FEBRUARY
1 Corinthians 2:6-16
NATURAL MAN CAN NEVER COMPREHEND THE PLANS OF GOD.
But as it is written:
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”
1. SPIRITUALLY MATURE PEOPLE BELIEVE IN REVELATION
They look into the invisible – so they can do the impossible.
They know there is a bigger world beyond their present horizon.
2. SPIRITUALLY MATURE PEOPLE BELIEVE GOD HAS PREPARED GOOD THINGS FOR THEM
They are not constantly looking for difficulties. Their eyes have never seen a “God failure.”
Their ears have never heard a “God apology.”
They know God has a vast supply of every good thing – and the “moment of presentation” is being prepared for them.
3. SPIRITUALLY MATURE PEOPLE ARE NOT SWAYED BY HUMAN OBSERVATION
The doubters, mockers, scoffers and unbelievers are always sitting in the grandstands of the faith arena.
Spiritually mature people believe they can pull of an upset victory even when the whole crowd is against them.
4. SPIRITUALLY MATURE PEOPLE FOCUS ON THE LOVE OF GOD
To see God’s love – you look at His face – not the work of His hands.
Spiritual maturity – is resting in the love of God – even when it seems there is no evidence of His love.
SPIRITUAL MATURITY IS ALLOWING THE LOVE OF GOD TO SATURATE, AND SATISFY YOUR HEART COMPLETELY – AND BY IT WE COMPREHEND THE MAGNITUDE OF HIS PLAN AND PURPOSE.
