A Whole New Level of Faith
“…You do not have because you do not ask God.”
– James 4:2 (NIV)
What a powerful statement, but what does it have to do with prayer? It is easy to believe that we have asked, and yet we still do not have the things we have asked for. But have we asked the way the Bible describes asking?
God loves to make promises. He invites us to note and underline those promises and pray until we see them become a reality. God is inviting you and me into the adventure of seeing His dreams come true in this world. This happens as we make the decision to become more impactful.
People today love extreme sports! We live in a world where the boundaries of human ability and capacity continue to be pressed and stretched. People compete in Iron-man Triathlons where they swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles, and then run a full marathon of 26.2 miles.
Extreme sports like ice climbing, wing-suit base jumping, kayak skydiving, snocross, and a myriad of other surprising options are cropping up as people look for a new rush of adrenaline and a greater challenge.
Something in the human spirit pushes us to climb higher, drive faster, and push the boundaries. Into this world of risk-taking adventurers, God whispers an invitation, “Try drawing a prayer circle!”
Into the lives of Christians who have become bored with the same old religious practices and routine spiritual lives, the Spirit of God says, “Take a risk, draw a new circle, and engage your faith at a whole new level.”
For believers who love God with a passion, but have slipped into a spiritual rut, it is time to enter a whole new level of extreme faith . . . it is time to begin to conquer new territories and spread impact!
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. – Matthew 7:7
Dear Lord God, I ask for your divine intervention in my community, church, and nation today. I ask that you grant me the Spirit of wisdom and revelation knowledge, open the eyes of my heart and fill me with the knowledge of your will. Lord, Let my life and ministry experience convergence of wisdom and wealth today and forever.
In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
