It’s time to sober up.

First remove the beam from your own eye! Then you will see clearly to remove the speck from you brothers eye… A friend of mine once showed me an add in a newspaper that read, “Truck driver wanted, no 18 year olds…with 25 years experience need apply.” It’s amazing how many people want to speak into other peoples lives, with very little, or no real life experience. They pray, study the bible, and come up with a great untried revelation. That has about as much use to real life, as tits on a bull.

When the bible in 1 Timothy 3:6 declares that a minister of the gospel should not be a novice, lest being puffed up with pride he fall into the same condemnation as the devil. It simply means people with no life experience, (a novice) should get some real life experience, before they start speaking untried direction into others lives.

If you want to be one that prays the prayer of faith make sure faith is working in your own health , and provision. And if you want to speak prophetic revelation in to others make sure your spiritual vision can guide you, before you start messing with other peoples lives. Why? You could find yourself it trouble with the man upstairs.

Some good scripture to meditate on, and then apply it to your journey into maturity…

What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble! But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead? Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar? Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect? And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” And he was called the friend of God. You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only.

James 2:14-24
