There is no neutral ground in the Spirit, we are either gaining ground or losing ground each day. We are getting more oil in our ‘lamps’ or we are burning it, we are getting closer to God or farther away.
“For whoever has, to him more shall be given; and whoever does not have, even what he has shall be taken away from him.” Mark 4:25
This is a Spiritual law is yet another reason we must be resolute in scheduling time each day to grow our hearts in love for God. There is so much temptation with media and such to spend our time so many other ways, but the reward of choosing to build our relationship with God, and experience more of the Holy Spirit is so worth it. I have found that the deeper experiences of the Spirit have happened after a period of regular focused seeking.
It’s like doing 50 pushups everyday, you may not notice the impact the first day, but three months later and there’s a marked difference.
