Jesus replied, “Let the faith of God be in you! Listen to the truth I speak to you: If someone says to this mountain with great faith and having no doubt, ‘Mountain, be lifted up and thrown into the midst of the sea,’ and believes that what he says will happen, it will be done.” Mark 11:22-23 TPT
I love this translation because it shows there is more to life than simply trusting in God, Jesus had the audacity to say we can have the same faith God has. Doesn’t that make sense? Because if I have the God kind of faith, there’s nothing that will be impossible for me.
I know this may be a little bit outside your religious box, but seriously, why would He have said it if it wasn’t ours to have. God believed everything He said, that’s how He created the heavens and earth. There was no doubt about it.
Do you think that when He created you and I, He left that attribute out? I don’t think so. I believe there are things He has hidden for us to discover when we seek to have real relationship with Him. It’s not all about God doing everything for us, it’s about us doing for God. It’s learning to rule from the supernatural realm having God’s perspective.
It’s replicating the faith of God when we lay hands on the sick. It’s operating just as Jesus did when He was in the earth. That’s why He said, “I only do what I see the Father do.” That is having the faith of God.
Here’s what pleases God more than anything, it’s making the effort to be Him in the earth. Hearing the words, “She’s just like her Father,” should mean something. Having the faith of God is a step from the reality you’ve been taught into the reality of His realm.
It’s that moment you step off the edge of your firm ground into the air and find the hand of God was there all the time. Just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean it’s missing. If He said you can do all things, you can do all things. He’s just waiting for you to step out and trust Him.
If you feel the Lord is calling you off the edge, close your eyes and go for it. There’s a whole lot of life on the other side of the ground you’re standing on. If you always play it safe, you’ll never open yourself up for crazy blessings.
Amen. We can have the same faith that God has!
