There are requirements for every kind of result, and if spiritual requirements are not met, nothing happens. Anyone that ignores the word of God and divine principles will be under the command and tutelage of those who have embodied those principles. As it is written, “I mean that the heir, as long as he is a child, is no different from a slave, though he is the owner of everything, but he is under guardians and managers until the date set by his father” (Galatians 4:1-2 ESV). If you refuse to turn away from the corruption and immaturity of the world, you will never outgrow this need for commands and tutelage. And you will never function as the salt and light of your world.
When the 400 years of slavery promised were up. It was up to Moses to step up, and work with God to liberate the children of Israel from Egypt. Moses could function at this level because he understood the character of God. The Psalmist wrote, “He made known His ways [of righteousness and justice] to Moses, His acts to the children of Israel” (Psalms 103:7 AMP). What we see is that God made His ways known (revealed his nature) to Moses. In other words, Moses got to know God in a personal way. On the other hand, the people of Israel only saw the workings of God. And Moses gave them a law (commands) to ensure they lived a life that was acceptable to God. The children of Israel saw the works of God, but Moses saw God.
God will empower and work with you when you are ready to embrace a higher level of discipline and responsibility. He uses the best of us to provide direction and structure to the rest of us. Babies and adults that refuse to grow up will be under the command and tutelage of those who have embraced this discipline. Undisciplined people are always under the care of someone more disciplined than them. In other words, if you do not live a Christ centred life by surrendering yourself to eternal truths. You will enjoy the works of God and marvel. However, you will never enjoy that fellowship and rapport with God. You will not see God one-on-one, he will continue to appoint baby-sitters (guardians and managers) over you.
