We often become fixed in our ways because we trust in what we know and we lean on our own understanding instead of fully trusting Jesus Christ and that is why we get STUCK in our spiritual life. We think that, that which we know, what we have learned is the alpha and the omega, that is the beginning and the end of the story and then we STAY with our understanding, but we have to trust Jesus Christ and open our spirit, our mind and let Him teach us. Let Him guide us.
If we get stuck on what we KNOW and what we have learned, even from the Lord Himself, then we are trusting on our KNOWLEDGE, on our EXPERIENCE and not on Jesus Christ. We have to fully trust Jesus and go with Him, LISTEN, WAIT on Him and He will give us UNDERSTANDING, He will open the WAY in front of us and we will SEE the LIGHT, we will SEE His way because God does not conform to what we THINK or what we have LEARNED, or what we believe to be His way.
Jesus Christ is LORD and we have to LOVE Him, TRUST Him, FOLLOW Him and OBEY Him in everything. Above all other things we have to OPEN our mind to Jesus. We have to be TRANSFORMED by the renewal of our MIND, by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit or else we will not enter into the kingdom of heaven, we will not follow Jesus Christ where He takes us.
Trust in the Lord, WAIT on Him, LISTEN and He will give you understanding. He will teach you NEW THINGS that you did not know, NEW THINGS that nobody knew because all knowledge and all revelation belongs to Him. Our God is UNLIMITED. Trust Him and FOLLOW Him.
May Jesus bless you.
