Spiritual Maturity – Going to the Next Level


We have heard the cliché “Going to the next level” used often throughout the body of Christ but it takes spiritual maturity on our part for spiritual progression.  The other night as I was falling asleep I had an unusual vision of a child with a milk mustache (which is a milk stain over the upper lip that one gets from drinking milk in a careless way).  I remembered an advertisement for milk several years ago in which they used pictures with people of all ages with milk mustaches.  The next morning as I was thinking about this peculiar vision that the Lord gave me, I received this word.

The Lord says, As you seek truth,  and as you seek to know Me more, the eyes of your heart will be enlightened.  Those who are willing to go beyond the milk of My word will align their thoughts with My word.  They are those who are hungry for the meat and willing to leave foolish and childish things behind.  I will give them understanding of spiritual things and My truth will become alive in them.  They are those who are willing to separate themselves unto Me.  They are those who not only spend time with Me, but they live a fasted lifestyle and they walk in holiness.  They refuse irrational arguments and they will readily forgive others who have wronged them.  They are not content with the milk, therefore they press on to the higher calling.  They depend on My leading as they go about their daily chores and they know that they have been called and set apart for My plans and My purposes.

As you allow My word to become part of you and follow after sound doctrine, your mind will be renewed.  You will no longer desire to submit to the things of the carnal nature.  The temptations of this world will grow dim as you hunger for spiritual realities.  The more that you spend time in My word and in My presence, you will find that hearing My voice will come with ease.  Pray in the spirit often to build yourself up in your most holy faith and as you do, you will become more attuned to My ways.   Soon you will find that as you continue to persevere, you will continually develop into the person who I have created you to be.  My fire will burn away all the dross, correct the false doctrine and all unscriptural teaching that you have learned in the past.  I will release discernment to see into dark places.  You will understand My word with more clarity and insight.

I am filling the hearts of those who desire to know Me more.  Those who are rooted and grounded will surely ascend to new heights.  I will reveal My secrets to those who  are submitted and seek revelation. I will make My voice known to  and those who have treasured My words more than their daily bread . It is not mystical or mysterious to them because they have a personal relationship with Me.  They are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness.  They are those who have learned to tune in to My frequencies.  Signs and wonders will accompany those who walk in My truth.  Those who follow My word will walk in peace.  Fear, confusion and anxiety will be far from them.  So enlarge your vision and extend your boundaries and as you yield yourself to Me, My plans will be established in your life says the Lord.

1 Corinthians 3:21   “And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ.  I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able.”

Ephesians 4:14 -15   “that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head-Christ.”

Hebrews 5:12-14   “For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food.  For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe.  But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.”
