Now that you realize how kind the Lord has been to you, put away all evil, deception, envy, and fraud. Long to grow up into the fullness of your salvation; cry for this as a baby cries for his milk –1 Peter 2:2 TLB

 You have to learn to take responsibility. The Word of God in Hosea 4 verse 6 holds that we perish because we lack knowledge.  To get knowledge, it comes from the Word of God.  You have to take responsibility of your spiritual growth. In the scripture above, the Spirit of God didn’t say,

…since you are new born babies in Christ, I will come and spoon feed you with the word so that you will grow into maturity

  Rather He said YOU should LONG, CRAVE, DESIRE, CRY, YEARN, and HUNGER for the word of God just as babies do for milk so that you will grow. The duty of the Spirit is to come and grant you understanding. You do the longing, desiring and the studying, while the Spirit of God does the teaching and granting of understanding into mysteries.

Ignorance gives the enemy the lever to operate full time in the life of a Christian without being noticed, depriving them of their rightful positions and placements.

It is your responsibility to train and mature yourself in God, through the Word, Prayer, obedience to the leading of the Holy Spirit, and the godly authority that God has positioned over you. The Word of God was written to teach, train you and I so that we can have a life full of peace and success, taking full delivery of every promise that has been spoken of and fulfilling Gods mandate on earth.

As you take responsibility and mature yourself through prayer and the Word, obedience to the leading of the Spirit and godly authority, strength will be imparted into you for destiny fulfillment. Remember, the Spirit of God will not do the job for you; He will only help you as you do the job. His ministry is that of a helper. You also have to know that, if there is no hunger/desire/craving, there will not be an infilling. If there is no infilling, there will not be understanding and knowledge. And if there is no knowledge and understanding, there will not be a manifestation (Success).
