Knowing God’s Ways by Zac Poonen
Most Christians observe only God’s external actions. They are impressed by physical miracles.They eagerly seek for healing and for material blessings. Most of their prayers too are related to such earthly matters, in which they want to see God act on their behalf and bless them in the physical realm. This is because they are in a state of spiritual babyhood. If these are the things that still excite us, then we have not seen the glory of the new covenant.One mark of those who are mature is that they are not taken up God’s external acts as much as with knowing God Himself and understanding His ways.
