Change Your Level of Faith
The Lord wants you and I to be willing to change our level of faith and move into ever more dynamic realms of faith. He is constantly drawing us from faith to faith, glory to glory and stature to stature.
As our will aligns with His we are able to enter the realm of fellowship of His sufferings. In this realm is found mutual faith where we find ourselves in agreement with Him and are able to operate with unfeigned faith. We have learned to trust Him completely and are willing to cast all our care upon Him. This is a place of trust that makes unthinkable any temptation to be pleasers of men. Our only desire is to please Him. This causes many to withdraw, misunderstand, mock, scorn, malign and persecute those in covenant with Him.
Having moved into unfeigned agreement with our Lord we now are ushered into the realm where we are made conformable unto His death and called to exercise great faith. This demands understanding the absolute authority of God in Christ and draws upon the same God kind of faith that was needed to send the Son of God and release the Gospel and the ensuing anointing into the care and keeping of man. Here the disciple yields his very existence into the hand of God.
This is the life that demands nothing for itself. Only here can one truly say, I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me:… and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God … (Galatians 2:20). In this life exploits are done for God. Here the Father speaks and the disciple speaks what he hears. In this realm the Father acts and what is seen is what is done. (John 8:28; 12:49; 14:10)
