Of Experience And Revelation

Apostle Grace Lubega

Ephesians 4:13-14(KJV); Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive.

Of Experience And RevelationEvery Christian should strive for maturity.

Maturity has nothing to do with physical age. It comes through two facets: experience and revelation.

There are lessons that experience can teach. However, there are also lessons that revelation can teach.

Some people disqualify men who function under the Spirit of revelation because they assume that only experience can teach a man, but understand that there are things you will never learn by experience, they must be revealed.

Practicing something over and over again does not mean that one carries the revelation or full understanding of it.

The Spirit of revelation redeems spiritual time. It helps you restore what has been eaten by the canker worm, the eater worm or any other time destroying ploys of the enemy (Joel 2:25).

Revelation restores what you may have lost in the past years, positions these things ahead of you and gives you the opportunity to get right what you may have failed at in the past.

Experience on the other hand, does not do that. It makes you a better person in preparation for your next step in life.

As a Christian who desires to grow in God, you cannot embrace one and disregard the other.

Embrace revelation because it is God’s redemptive power; embrace experience too because it fortifies your knowledge.

FURTHER STUDY: Ephesians 1:17; Deuteronomy 29:29

Maturity has nothing to do with physical age. It comes through two facets: experience and revelation.

PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank you for this wisdom. I embrace it for my maturity. Revelation works in my life and opens my eyes to the realities of the spirit. In understanding, I reap the benefits of experience and learn from it. My heart is open to everything that contributes to my growth. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
