“And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.” (Luke 2:40, KJV).
The verse above was a comment made about Jesus as a child. The information we have about him from the bible, before he turned thirty and started His public ministry, was from birth to eight years, and then when he was twelve and that’s all. The next thing was when He was thirty, about to be baptised.
Does it mean that the events from the age of twelve to thirty in the life of Jesus were not important? I personally believe it was one of the most important periods in His life. It was a period of growth and development for Him. He used that period to wax strong in spirit, grow in wisdom and create an atmosphere where the grace of God will dwell strongly on Him through the way He lived His life.
No wonder when He was ready to launch out nothing could stop Him. A lot of us are eager to be popular, famous and wealthy. We don’t want to pay the price of preparation. No wonder after a few years we phase off because we didn’t develop a strong root. We couldn’t produce things worth eternal value.
We all have different destinies. You must understand that there are destinies that require a longer time of preparation. If you fall into that category, don’t look at other people doing stuff, people you think you started together with. Work on yourself and be sure God has released you to manifest. Be led. I’m not saying you shouldn’t be doing things to add value to your world. No! But there is a time set for everyman to manifest. Be ready for your time. Preparation precedes manifestation. Great day my friend. #BeInspired.
