“If you can believe, all things are possible to him that believes.” Mark 9:23
I have another confession to make. I am really dissatisfied with my Christian life. I am not dissatisfied with God, but rather how far below I am living from what He makes available to us. To some extent, I was conditioned to grow up in Christ and still be impotent, weak and powerless in matters of faith. On occasion, I have witnessed or experienced the undeniable power of God show up and release dramatic and instant healing or an abundance of provision when there seemed to be no way. But I want more and God makes more available… to him (or her) that believes.
You see, when Jesus spoke, He was helping you and I understand reality. He was DESCRIBING reality. When He said that ALL things are possible to him that believes, He wasn’t waxing eloquent or trying to be merely inspirational. He was describing REALITY. He was explaining the way things really work. When I measure my life to this Scripture, I realize just how little I really believe at a gut level, or should I say, at a heart level. I want my knowledge of Scripture to so deeply penetrate my heart that I am forever ruined for the ordinary.
In fact, that has already started. Friends… (May I call you friends?)… I am done with low living. I am done with explaining away spiritual truth because I cannot manifest it in my own life. From now on, I will endeavor to speak the Truth, to declare as true what God has said. I will no longer modify it by my experience. I will cease filtering the Word and adjusting the Word through the prism of my experience. Instead, I will let my experience catch up with the Truth of His Word.
As I head down this path, I invite you my friends to join me. Together, we will explore and experience the Truth of His Word in ways we have always secretly hoped for. For those of you who want to walk a little more closely with me and some of the other folks who read this blog, I invite you to a private, by invitation only, conference call next week where I will share with you some details about how God is helping me coach, train and inspire using the latest online tools available.
Here’s what one attendee last week had to say about the conference call… “Just wanted to thank you for including me in the web cast this morning. Michael’s material in itself represents a solid body of work for kingdom purposes….but the website really takes it all to a remarkable level. Not so much that it enhances the value of the material (which it does), but more that it exponentially expands the possibilities for infusing it to business interests around the globe. As you know, I am not easily impressed, but I think what God has done through Michael’s work is beyond impressive…it is inspiring. Inspiring to know that God has been able to use Michael’s efforts to bring all this to a point of fullness in such a short time. You and I both know that unless God builds the house, they labor in vain…. When God is clearly at work, it becomes easy to give one’s self to promoting the initiative.”
If you want in on that call, please respond to Cheryl at this email address and she will schedule a time when we can meet in a small group conference call with about a dozen folks on the call. That way I can speak directly with you and hear your heart as well.
