“…now I say that the heir, as long as he is a child, does not differ at all from a slave, though he is a master of all, but is under guardians and stewards until the time appointed by the father…” Galatians 4:1-2 (NKJV)

A closer look at our opening text, lets us know that the heir, as long as is a child, does not differ from a slave, though he is a master of all. Why? Because even though he is an heir, as long as he is a child, he can’t be a master. Now, this is the case of people who refuse to grow in their Christian walk. Though they are heirs of all things, they still find themselves struggling with many things like demonic oppression, faith issues, financial issues and lots more. Therefore, it is expedient that you make a conscious decision to grow spiritually. Those who remain spiritual babes are always never able to access the wonderful revelations of God in the scriptures because they lack understanding. 

They are always not able to experience the manifold manifestations of the power of God because they are always in doubt. And worst of all they find themselves at the mercy of the system of this world and the oppression of the devil, because somehow they have not embraced the higher life that is in Christ Jesus. However, to avoid this, you make a conscious decision that you do not want to remain a child any more. At first it might not be an easy decision. The devil will fight this decision and bring you all manner of distractions just to make you give up on that decision but if you choose to stay focused on the decision you have made and begin to take necessary actions, you will surely begin to grow. So I charge you therefore to get serious with your Christian walk and start engaging in the activities that will help you grow and have a vibrant Christian. Praise God!


When you grow as a Christian, the systems of the world and the oppression of the kingdom of darkness will not prevail over you!


Father, I am grateful for this eye-opening article, I receive grace, wisdom and the desire to to grow in my spiritual walk, and through the help of the Holy Spirit, my spiritual growth shall be steady and continuous in Jesus’ name. Amen!
