Our walk with God is a progressive walk, as is our walk with anyone for that matter. One never knows a person until they know the person, our introduction to God, family, or friends opens a door for us to come to see and understand one another in a progressive manner. It is true that when we come to meet the Lord that He saves us completely, but we don't know Him completely, it is a progressive journey...not a matter of salvation, it's a matter of relationship, which requires revelation. My wife and I have been married almost 20 years, we certainly know each other better now than we did while dating and when we first married, but we did have lives before we met and married and there are things we are still learning about one another...progressive revelation. This phrase has been in my spirit since early this morning, I was reminded of a story in the Gospels where Jesus came into the midst of some leperous men. The Bible says of these men that evidently they knew who Jesus was, they knew of His reputation, and they asked Him to have mercy upon them...The Bible says that as they went they were cleansed. Sometimes we get the revelation, we believe in our hearts, and then we are required to walk out the revelation even though outwardly we cannot see any evidence or proof that God has done anything. The more we walk with Him the more we learn to trust in Him, and the more we trust in Him the more He reveals Himself...and the amazing thing is that He doesn't always reveal Himself in the same manner...He doesn't want to be familiar...He wants to be trusted!
