Hebrews 12:2 – “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
Notice Jesus is the “Author.” What does that mean?
It means your faith originated with Him. And not only is He the Author, He is the Finisher too.
“From faith to faith” in Romans 1:17 means we are to begin and finish in faith. We are to start in faith and stand in faith until that which we are believing for arrives. We go from “faith to faith” not faith to feelings. So if you have God’s word on something, that Word is the Starter and the Finisher!
Mark 4:26,27 – And Jesus said, “so is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground; And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how.”
Faith is a seed. When we are dealing in faith, there is a timing for the manifestation. It takes time sometimes for our faith to pull things into the natural realm. That’s why the bible says it’s “from faith to faith.” We have to stay in faith even when we don’t see any changes. In our faith, we have to get above seeing or feeling something.
I OPERATE IN THE KIND OF FAITH THAT RECEIVES VICTORY AND MAINTAINS THAT VICTORY SINCE I HOLD FAST TO MY BELIEVING AND CONFESSING.
WHEN MY FAITH IS CHALLENGED I MUST FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH. I STAY ON COURSE UNTIL THE FIGHT IS FINISHED.
Jeremiah 33:3 – “Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.”
It is so easy to remain comfortable with our familiar, man-made traditions – simply doing the things the way that we have always done them. The Lord urges us to call unto Him and He will answer us and tell us great and unsearchable things we do not know.
The Lord beckons us to come out of our comfort zones. He calls us to step out into the new and uncharted waters with Him – to go to the places where we have not previously navigated. Be assured, where our Father calls us is the safest place to be.
Our key to being successful and to navigate the new territory that the Lord is giving us will be to simply hear and obey His voice. The wisdom of man and human logic will fail us. God is calling us to come up to a higher place with Him and to move out in radical faith and obedience.
As we continue to hunger and thirst for righteousness, we will be filled. As we ask for wisdom, the Lord will grant it to us. Watch, as He gives us a fresh revelation and the keys that we need.
