I’ve been reading,
“Through The Eyes of a Lion, Facing Impossible Pain, Finding Incredible Power” By Levi Lusko – the pastor of Skull Church in Kalispell, Montana
Somewhere in chapter eleven I was struck with the realization that there is a level of faith that is deeper – always deeper, that we must seek and never give up on, and never give in to fear and doubt in seeking to find.
We know there is more. There is a place deeper and more intimate in the presence of Jesus – face to face with him, with his power and strength. A place of resolve, of confidence, unshaken trust and faith that shines out and touches hearts and changes lives.
Christ demonstrated this while on earth. And those who came in contact with him were forever changed. He had no doubt of his ability to turn water into wine, to heal the sick or cast out demons, and ultimately he overcame all evil because he had life in himself to be raised from the dead.
That’s where I want to be. That’s what I want to tap into. That same trust and assurance that God has my back, and I have nothing to fear because I know his love for me is as pure and unshakable as it was for Christ.
I want to never give in, never give up believing and seeking. I want to seek with all my heart; with all I have; with every resource available to me; with every thought; every fiber of my being.
But, I think we give in way too soon. We give in to fear, to failure, to doubt. We let what we see blind our faith in the possible and deem it impossible. We need to fight like a mother searching for a missing child.
If it were your child, you would never quit. You would shut the mouths of those who say there is no hope. Your every thought, your whole being would be set on finding your child. There is no expense you would not pay, no extreme you would not go to. You would be absolutely driven!
To seek to know God this way is to truly love God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind.
