Mathew 21:21-22 Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done. 22 If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”
Mathew 8:26 Jesus responded, “Why are you afraid? You have so little faith!” Then he got up and rebuked the wind and waves, and suddenly there was a great calm.
I love that! Suddenly there was “a great calm”, the peace of God instilled through FAITH! “Be Still and know….” Psalm 46:10 These verses bring out the fearless evangelical “angel warrior” in my heart! 😉 ….my own spiritual Power Trip! It’s a calling to “bear witness” to the mighty power of God through faith. The power is His and freely given and produces the necessary strength and “child-like faith” that it requires to become His disciple: brave enough to lay down one’s life, able to resist and deny self, to carry a weighty burdened cross …a faith induced Jesus follower! One that is equipped with the same power that rose Jesus from the dead! Whoah!
He channels His power through us as chosen vessels to bless, to heal, to war, to preach, to sing, to advance His Kingdom on earth, “heaven come down”! And, no one vessel is more powerful than another. It’s the depth, the purity, and the vastness of the enabled faith that displays the greatness and the power of The Messiah being revealed through them.
1 Peter 1:5 You are being protected by God’s power through faith for a salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.
We are all called to receive Faith through His Grace, but it is up to us to succumb to it and to accept it as it is! Faith CAN NOT be seen or forced! Who could possibly move a mountain or walk on water if they didn’t really possess a true unshakable God faith? This power driven faith defies anything of this world’s intelligence, strength, truth, or confidence because the peace received from it is not of this world…… JESUS! True Faith is found and activated through intercessory prayer as the pray-er’s faith connects to the spiritual realm, the heavens.
Having accepted the challenge of faith on the day I was saved, I had no concept of what lay ahead of me….what I would endure, witness, fight, release, die to, and accept all to get me to the next level of radically divine and pure surrendered Faith. Not for the faint hearted or the pleasure seekers, for sure! Selah!
James 1:2-4,12 2Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, 3knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. 4And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing….12Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.
Once I had found my peace with God and my stormy seas were calmed, deep seeded Faith became my sight… spiritual eyes that allow for seeing God’s perspective! So says the Lord… Now, come down from that mountain Beth, your Exodus, and continue on the journey ahead. Equipped and ready! Walk gracefully by faith, shine brightly, pray fiercely, fear nothing, speak life, and know that your faith has healed you!” Holy, Righteous, and Redeemed!
Mark 5:34 And He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be healed of your affliction.”

Prayer: May God bless us while we sing out to Him, climb our mountains, and even hurl them into the sea if so commanded. Believe! May we rely on our faith to bring us the hope of heaven where He promises we will receive The Crown of Life!!! Humble our arrogant flesh hearts and heal us through faith ….let us become the heart of Jesus!
