“There are levels to developing a relationship with God. The more you grow in your walk with God the more you level up in Christ” ~TB
The moment we accept Christ we are reborn as infants in desperate need of care from our Father. Like a loving parent, he feeds us milk to encourage and help us grow stronger in our faith so that day by day we level up in faith, maturing in our walk.
As we mature, God weans us off of milk and begins to feed us meat. The tests, lessons, and trials become more complex, but rest assured God has given us sufficient time to develop the Biblical teeth to consume His word. Through careful study and application, we begin to connect the dots as we ascend to a deeper level of faith.
The devil wants us to believe that the turbulence we experience as we grow is a sign that we are failing. Don’t give up, because this is not so! The truth in the matter is that the evil one has no real dominion or power over us, resist him and he has no choice but to flee. Once you recognize this fundamental truth, you then can begin to enjoy the meat.
Are you leveling up to enjoy God’s filet mignon or has the devil tricked you into believing it is spoiled meat?

1 I wait quietly before God, for my victory comes from him. 2 He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will never be shaken. 3 So many enemies against one man— all of them trying to kill me. To them I’m just a broken-down wall or a tottering fence. 4 They plan to topple me from my high position. They delight in telling lies about me. They praise me to my face but curse me in their hearts. Interlude 5 Let all that I am wait quietly before God, for my hope is in him. 6 He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will not be shaken. 7 My victory and honor come from God alone. He is my refuge, a rock where no enemy can reach me. 8 O my people, trust in him at all times. Pour out your heart to him, for God is our refuge. Interlude 9 Common people are as worthless as a puff of wind, and the powerful are not what they appear to be. If you weigh them on the scales, together they are lighter than a breath of air. 10 Don’t make your living by extortion or put your hope in stealing. And if your wealth increases, don’t make it the center of your life. 11 God has spoken plainly, and I have heard it many times: Power, O God, belongs to you; 12unfailing love, O Lord, is yours. Surely you repay all people according to what they have done.
