Strength and Honor Ministries
Spiritual Maturity is at the Heart of God right now. He is releasing prophetic insights in how He wants His children to know and grow in Spiritual Maturity and accelerate them to prepare them for revival and awakening. He wants us to grow into oneness and intimacy with Him and reflect the image of Christ.
On December 2nd, the Lord shared that He wanted to give prophetic dreams, visions, images and conversations that would show His children how He wanted them to walk into Spiritual Maturity. As the Lord reveals them, we will be writing those prophetic words and releasing them into our prophetic words webpage and you will be able to see the whole series under the Maturity M## category button on the prophetic words webpage in order to see all the ones the Lord has released to build the picture of how He wants to accelerate us into Spiritual Maturity and prepare for a greater outpouring of Holy Spirit's anointing.
What is Spiritual Maturity?
Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”
John 4:23-24 NIV -Jesus Speaking
for we are the true circumcision, who worship in the Spirit of God and glory in Christ Jesus and put no confidence in the flesh, Philippians 3:3 NASB
Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you. Nevertheless, to the degree that we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us be of the same mind. Brethren, join in following my example, and note those who so walk, as you have us for a pattern. Philippians 3:12-17 NKJV
What was that pattern of maturity that Paul was encouraging to be sought:
Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ.
I Corinthians 11:1 NKJV
God's heart is for us to have a prevailing pursuit to be like Jesus. This is Spiritual Maturity. Oneness and intimacy with God and a pursuit to reflect the image of Jesus Christ. That is to value Holy Spirit and Jesus Christ, Spirit and Truth, as God is looking for those who value Spirit and Truth. Just like Jesus valued Holy Spirit and Truth.

Fast and Listen to Him
We encourage you to consider fasting and praying. It will ignite a fire if you fast and pray and seek. The things He wants to change will be exposed quickly and Holy Spirit will increase quickly. Fasts are not done to get something from God. They are done to get a person inline with Holy Spirit so things flow.
We encourage your prayer to be two way. Spend a large portion of time listening to Him in stillness or waiting for Him to begin speaking. Set conditions of quietness.
We recommend a lifestyle fast of giving up social media, internet, TV, alcohol, hobbies for personal reasons and pleasures for a period of time.
We encourage you to do a food fast if your health allows it. A 21 day Daniel Fast is a great way to start. Eat nothing pleasurable, no meat, drink no wine. Or Skip a meal a day.
In those days, I, Daniel, had been mourning for three entire weeks. I did not eat any tasty food, nor did meat or wine enter my mouth, nor did I use any ointment at all until the entire three weeks were completed. Daniel 10:2-3
