SPIRITUAL GROWTH

Dag Heward-Mills

READ: Jude 17-25

…desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow there by:

1 Peter 2:2

Developing your spirit” is another way to describe growing in spirit. The first key to developing the human spirit is the Word (1 Peter 2:2).

Allow the Word of God to enter your spirit through your daily quiet time, Bible study and Bible reading. I benefit greatly from spending time with the Lord every morning.

Moses was a man who had a quiet time with the Lord. Moses went up to the mountain early in the morning to meet with the Lord. He took two tables of stone to write down the revelations that God would give him. You need to have a Moses type of quiet time. Spend time early in the morning alone with the Lord. “…Hew thee two tables of stone… And be ready in the morning, and come up in the morning…and present thyself there… And no man shall come up with thee…” (Exodus 34:1-3).

A quiet time of Bible study and prayer is the most consistent way to feed your spirit. Your spirit does not grow unless it is fed on the Word of God.

Another good way of taking in the Word is by listening to tapes. “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17).

The second best way by which I have fed my spirit over the years is through listening to preaching CD. I listen to CDs all the time and I am blessed because I do. God has given pastors and teachers to perfect the saints. You can receive the Word through these anointed men of God.
