Apostle Grace Lubega
Acts 10:12-14 (KJV); Wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air. And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat. But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten anything that is common or unclean.
Our Lord and master Jesus Christ appeared to Apostle Peter with a divine instruction for him to “kill and eat” certain creatures that had appeared on a white sheet from heaven.
Peter, stuck in the traditions of his forefathers, boldly told the master, “Not so, Lord.”
This was repeated three times! Peter refused!(Acts 10:16).
Because of tradition, Peter frustrated a spiritual experience.
This was a new dispensation that God was introducing him to.
Sadly, he refused to heed to the voice of the Spirit.
Tradition can lock you out of the new experiences and revelations that God has purposed for your life.
In Peter’s case, it blinded him from the fact that it was the Christ who was asking him to do as instructed.
At this point, tradition was more important to Peter than the relationship he had with his Lord.
Beloved saint, always be ready to progress past what you think you know and have been taught over the years.
Allow the Spirit of God to launch you into new and fresh experiences of His person.
His name be praised!

Always be ready to progress past what you think you know and have been taught over the years. Allow the Spirit of God to launch you into new and fresh experiences of His person.
PRAYER: Most excellent Lord, I give You praise for this day. Thank You for the wisdom to behold You as You truly are. I thank You Father because Your Word fills my heart. I live in the newness of revelation and the daily experiences of the Spirit. I yield to divine instruction and the depths that You launch me into daily. In Jesus name. Amen.
