Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your

presence, O Lord. (Psalms 89:15)

It’s very evident here that the psalmist knows that spiritual growth is a process. We do not

mature spiritually overnight. Our relationship with God has to be built up by acknowledging

that He is right in all things that pertain to our lives and we have to get in tune with His

requirements. Of course there are believers who think that they “know it all” but that’s just

a flight of imagination. There are many new things to be learnt each day from the Lord.

Some Christians have confessed that what they thought and spoke and preached several

years back were just not perfect and now they have changed their ideas regarding certain

aspects of the Word.

This is what the Apostle Paul had to tell the believers at Ephesus,

I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the

Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray also that the

eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he

has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints. (Ephesians 1:17, 18)

We read in the book of Acts, how God brought about a great change in the life of a Jew

named Apollos. He had knowledge regarding God, but that was not enough.

Meanwhile a Jew named Apollos, a native of Alexandria, came to Ephesus. He was a

learned man, with a thorough knowledge of the Scriptures. He had been instructed in the

way of the Lord, and he spoke with great fervor and taught about Jesus accurately,

though he knew only the baptism of John. He began to speak boldly in the synagogue.

When Priscilla and Aquila heard him, they invited him to their home and explained to him

the way of God more adequately. When Apollos wanted to go to Achaia, the brothers

encouraged him and wrote to the disciples there to welcome him. On arriving, he was a

great help to those who by grace had believed. For he vigorously refuted the Jews in

public debate, proving from the Scriptures that Jesus was the Christ. (Acts 18:24-28)

As we keep learning the “light of His presence” shines more brightly and we mature day by

day and this process will continue till we step into eternity to live with the Lord. Happy

journey friends.
