“Afterward he measured a thousand, and it was a river that I could not pass over: for the waters were risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed over.”
To the ankle, to the knee, and then the entire body – it’s okay to start small in your walk with God, but you must finish big. The blessings that come to believers are in correspondence to the level they are.
God does not grant us our prayer request; He grants us what we can handle based on the level of our growth and faithfulness. God’s primary measure for trusting anyone is the degree to which such a person can manage all that is committed to their care.
As a believer, the secret to being effective, efficient, and fruitful in walking with God is intentional upshot and constant increase in our Christian experience.
For God to trust you with more tasks, responsibilities, power, and influence over the lives of others, you must tailor and allow your roots to grow downward and bear fruits upward. The older you grow, the deeper you should become in your understanding of God. This drives you into a deeper search for holy knowledge, and it results in greater service, deeper consecration, and higher love for God.
Dear believer, what’s your water level? How well have you grown ever since you came into the Kingdom?

Thought for the day: Grow intentionally.
