Example text

Even when under heavy attack, the power to procreate remains protected. However, if all reproductive capabilities are fully functioning, why so few children? Why so little fruit of the womb? In one selfless prayer, Jesus moved His ministry into full maturity and exemplified moving from the adolescence stage—where the focus is self, to the mature stage of life development—where the emphasis is on reproduction. His prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane contains the key to spiritual reproduction. “Not my will, but thine be done,” illustrating the style of sincere prayer that will move one from the adolescent stage of self into the mature stage of reproduction.

Because the church has settled into an unhealthy pattern of protection, often we have become so busy striving for survival that we miss many offensive opportunities for reproduction. Just as in the natural life development cycle in which the emphasis of infancy is survival, sometimes spiritually we are stuck in a survival mode. Often, because of our lack of spiritual maturity, we accomplish little. We should not be satisfied with merely surviving, when the Bible declares our abilities sufficient to accomplish exploits for the kingdom of God.

The meaning behind the word “know” is the key. The word know implies intimacy like Adam knew Eve, and children were born. ” If we abide in a loving, intimate relationship with Jesus, who is Truth, we can and will be spiritually productive and fruitful. The armor, which protects us, must be the girdle of truth. With the proper relationship with truth, our armor can be activated until it is transformed into an offensive threat to the enemy. If we would develop a love for the Lord until we move from armed (with the girdle of truth) but not dangerous to armed and dangerous because of our mature intimacy with Jesus, we could present the biggest threat ever to the devil.
