May 13 Depending on Divine Resources

Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you.

Philippians 3:15

Unfortunately, in every church some Christians are content with their spiritual state. Instead of recognizing their need, they expend their energies justifying the level they have attained.

Today’s verse basically says that if some believers don’t yet understand the importance of pursuing growth, God will have to reveal it to them. I pour my heart out in my messages, but I realize that some of my listeners will continue to live uncommitted lives. When you reach that point with someone you’re ministering to, you just have to ask God to reveal Himself to that individual.

In pursuing Christ, we all need to depend on divine resources. There will be times in the race when you don’t have the proper attitude, and God will have to reveal that to you so you can move on.[1]
