It is important that we understand that we do not progressively grow out of the “milk” stage (blessings)
and then press into the “meat” (dealings and testing's) of God.  There is a marvelous balance wherein
the Lord works concurrently in each of these levels within us.  Thus, in one area of experience,
we are seen by the Lord as being a spiritual “babe” and are coddled accordingly, while at the same time
in another area, we may be seen as an adult with much more expected of us.
As we progress through each of these different stages of spiritual growth, we are to fully experience
all of the feelings, emotions, and relationships that apply to each particular area of our spiritual growth. 
This will enable us to become stable, balanced, mature.
