“…employ every effort and in [exercising] knowledge [develop] self-control” 2 Peter 1:6 AMP
Even though it takes many, many days to wait on God to develop and mature you, it is imperative to press forward and seek Him and learn His Word. Ignorance is not bliss. Knowing the truth leads you to further trust and cooperation with God to experience His will in your life. God wants you strong. Self-control to strongly live righteously instead of being destroyed by sin is His will for your life.
He does NOT use a magic wand to strengthen you. Come on, you do not get physically strong by reading weight lifting books. The same is true for spiritual growth. Instead He gives you circumstances, trials, tribulations, etc to let you exercise your knowledge of God for the purpose of working out your salvation. You must become strong in spirit!
“Now you are free from your slavery to sin, and you have become slaves to righteous living.” Romans 6:18 (NLT2)
