This is faith in faith: where the man of God has shifted his way of believing – where he no longer believes, or perhaps never did – in who I AM. Faith in faith is common among you. When one has been deceived in this kind of faith, they will not know the moving of the Holy Spirit – in them. They may be moved to live morally but they are moved from outside of themselves. The Word is the law and what they follow. They are loyal and do not waiver but nevertheless are not led by My Spirit. Faith in faith allows for men’s understanding (and interpretation) of My Word to be what leads them. Faith in Me is to surrender entirely so they may take their eyes off of themselves, the world and all that the mind may instruct – to forsake this. You must lock your eyes, mind and heart on who I AM so you may walk in true faith. When you walk in truth, then you are able to be My faithful witnesses. I will entrust you with My Spirit who will lead you and demonstrate who I AM in you and among you.
Faith in faith is deceptive and widespread among the believing and is the broad way because it is easy to have faith in faith. It is easy to say you believe. Because this kind of faith allows you to be in control of how and what you may believe. For faith of this kind – is simply to believe. The faith I command is beyond simply believing. Faith in Me demands that you surrender – and let go unto Me. You keep nothing for yourself but instead you give everything to Me BECAUSE you have faith in who I AM. Faith in faith does not surrender and does not yield to who I AM. It is like a peg driven in the ground and it becomes its own thing. Faith in Me flows and is fluid and does not stand upon anything but who I AM. I then can take such souls into who I AM and teach them all things.
Careful that you do not slip into this kind of faith, to mix in with who I AM. I am not a promise that one proclaims and stands upon. I AM not something one takes up – like one takes up because it is of interest to pursue. I am not a set of do’s and don’ts. I am not confined into a mission statement. I am not bound in statements of beliefs. Do not treat Me as if I come to serve you. This kind of faith, which expects to be served puts Me in a box. Faith in faith is the product of one who uses Me for their purpose and goal. They use this kind of faith to feel good about their religion and the good they do. It may be passionate faith, but is no less idolatry.
How can one know that they practice faith in faith and not faith in I AM?
The children of Israel – revealed this kind of faith. One of the prominent ways was when they easily forsook who I AM to place their faith upon a molded calf. They created their own image of who they wanted to place their faith in. They were delirious with joy as they celebrated faith in faith. While my servant Moses went up to meet with I AM, on their behalf, they did not wait in faith in who I AM. Many would say that they would have never done this, if they lived in that day. But in fact many do – live in this way. They believe they are serving Me while they have created a god of their own image and taste – one that they can see, touch and feel. They confuse what makes them feel good, as pleasing to Me but know this, faith in faith demands and takes for yourself and is selfish. Faith in Me – yields and gives – yourself. Faith in faith has an agenda. Faith in Me – cannot exist with agendas.
Be on guard against this kind of faith. This kind of faith actually denies Me and My power. It is powerless and lives are changeless. They may be religious, and have many things to say that may be lofty and even beautiful regarding who I AM, but look for My Power in them, is it there? All who walk in faith (in Me), will have the witness of who I AM in them in deed and in power! When anyone believes in who I AM they will not live changeless lives, for I AM alive in them. They will testify of who I AM not just in the Word but in their lives. They will live what they believe. I will be present where they are for I am not dry, and mere words to share with others.
If you do not experience living waters in you, go back to where you have fallen, and see if you put your faith in faith. Give to Me what it is I have asked and I will give you the power that raises the dead. Do not fear My Power nor try to put it into a box of your understanding for then it will be snuffed out. My Holy Spirit in you – must be who leads you. Do not try to lead Me in and by your own understanding. I AM unlimited. Ask Me for My Holy Spirit and I give to all who desire this and do not let fear be what you are led by. Fear of the unknown.
How many who believe in the Father and the Son but are terrified of My Spirit to lead? Be like the child who embraces who I AM easily in all who I AM. You do not have, because you have not asked. You do not know that you can move mountains and can cast out demons because you say it is not for you or for this day. You have faith in faith. Faith in faith expects I AM to join you in what you are doing. Faith in I AM commands you join Me in what I AM doing.
The Word will only come alive in Spirit and Truth, otherwise it will remain dead. Do not be deceived since the Word may be spoken to take as evidence of who I AM. Look for My Word in Spirit and in Truth. Only by My Spirit can this be true. The Word without this is legalism and will end up being the product of works-based religion. For if My Spirit is not who leads, then the flesh takes what is spoken and works it out.
How many forget, it is I who builds My church. Come and join Me in what I am doing. Turn from your doings and find Me in where I am calling you to BE.
Daily Walk with Jesus
Years ago, I sought the Lord in a deeply perplexing time in my life and to which He gave me a profound and unexpected answer. I believe it was not only for me but for all of us:
I had a question for God.
I was surround by confusion and the stress to make some important decisions
So I asked
‘God, what is it that I should do?’
Tired, defeated and felling alone… I hoped for an answer.
In my heart I heard this
As you are simply, being, be with Me.
For this is where you will truly find life and live.
When you are just being, there will be no room for fear, and where I AM fear cannot remain.
Expectation in yourself and others will vanish when your eyes are upon Me and you will be satisfied – for I do not disappoint.
This is the key that unlocks the door to peace.
Peace is not just a feeling or state of being, but who I AM.
So for today, just be, with Me for as we are together you will hear Me and I will tell you many things and you will find your way through.
My delight is in you. Won’t you take delight in Me?’
