slow to grow

thinking over feeling

  “As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in Him” (Col. 2:6).

 

  How readily and eagerly we take His Word when He says, “I go to prepare a place for you” (John 14:2), yet how slow of heart we are to believe that He has prepared a walk for us, here and now! For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us, (taking paths which He prepared ahead of time) that we should walk in them—living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live” (Eph. 2:10, Amp.).

 

 

  “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ (Eph. 1:3, ASV). If you can run over in your mind and find one single blessing with which God might bless us today, with which He has not already blessed us, then what He told Paul is not true at all, because He said, ‘God hath….’ It is all done, ‘It is finished.’ God hath blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenlies! The great pity of it all is that we are saying ‘O God bless us—bless us in this, bless us in that! and it is all done; He has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in Christ in the heavenlies. It is our place to believe and receive.”

 

  “According as His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness” (2 Pet. 1:3).
