Father wants us to dress more of him. When we dress him, it’s because we need him to be God. There is nothing Father loves more than being God to us: he loves us. He hopes that we don’t run around all day being silly: needing him for this, needing him for that, he needs us to grow up and be not so needy sons. If we are always in need, how can we lead others out of it? Listen, I say to my wife all the time, a Christian in America who knows God, how can you not make it? Then it hit me, that Christian needs to know more of God. Yep, that’s it.
When I say know more of God, it means to dress more of him. If you only dress some of him, and not enough of him, you will come up short even with him. The enemy is on to your game, you got to throw something new at him. Some of us are so proud of our moves to where we do the same ones all the time, and wonder why we came up short again. The enemy see you doing them too: the fact that he’s the greatest spiritual copy cat that ever dropped from heaven, has him right in sync with all your best moves. I love watching the swimming and high dive events. It doesn’t matter how many times you may nail your favorite dive, if the degree of difficulty is not there, you will not be on the medal podium. When Moses showed up to Pharaoh with those first three miracles lacking the degree of difficulty needed to win, Pharaoh thought he was in the game. You have kept the enemy in the game, it is time to take him out by dressing more Father to show more degrees of difficulty. It use to be a reverse 2 1/2 somersault with 2 1/2 twist with a degree of difficulty rated at 3.8 that took the cake, but not today. Today, it’s a reverse 4 1/2 somersault in the pike position rated at 4.8 that takes the cake. Moses had to go on up and dress God in another degree of difficulty: the magicians of Pharaoh could also dress for serpents, blood in the water, and the frogs they could do too, but once Moses stepped up to the lice, game was basically over.
Stop lacking in your degree of difficulty: dress Father in something your enemies and even competition just can’t dress in. This is where Father comes in at: he’s the greater of the Godhead. Faith is faith to him, so why not use it to dress more of him, and then you can see what Father got. Elisha was angry at King Jehoash for dressing in little faith. Elisha told the king to take arrows, and strike the ground, but he didn’t say how many times to strike the ground. Here is where your faith should be raised higher to dress the outcome higher. The king only struck the ground three times, and got a thirty fold type victory; however, Elisha said to him if you had struck the ground five or six times you would have not only won, but destroyed the enemy: now you will defeat Aram only three times.
So let’s use our faith to dress more of God to see even the Father. We need to start cashing in on those hundred fold degree of difficulty results: it’s the same faith for Father if you can trust him, in America.
Father Loves To Do The Body Good.
