When we are little children who is just beginning to walk, we depend greatly on adults to assist us as we walk. We may decide to walk on our own a little and grab a hold of something steady, be it a table, chair, or person. There may be times when the child loses balance and falls. As the child continue to grow up (if there is nothing wrong with the child) he/she will learn how to stand tall and walk effortlessly. We as believers aren’t automatically adults upon receiving Christ. We all begin as babes in Christ (Some mature quicker than others). All of us in Christ have been at a place where our heavenly Father feeds us, holds us, and do the necessities to keep the baby alive and comfortable.
As we grow older God will want us to begin to walk. We may struggle and wobble here and there, but God is there to catch us when we ‘lose our balance’ and fall. As we continue to grow in Christ we obtain more and more strength and abilities. We are more capable of doing things on our own. We do not have a constant need to consult God about His will. We will have more of a knowledge of what His will is in people’s lives. We would come to a place where we can cast out demons with no problem. We would find ourselves in position to lay hands on the sick and see them recover. As adults in Christ we would know our place in Christ. The bible says, when I was a child I spoke as a child, I thought as a child, I understood as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things (We are to love one another deeply).
