We all start out at a place in which we believe that we can handle the truth. Yeah, I can get up on any day now, and knock out a five mile run with run to spare. I did not start out that way years ago, but I did start out. And as I started out, I would come to terms with the truth of that start out, and then I would have to deal with what was truth as opposed to what was hoped for. The important thing about that start out day had nothing to do with the truth that I had learned, but had everything to do with whether or not I would return to start out again according to the Word on which I started out on. When I first believed that running was a thing that I hoped for, and while the evidence was still unseen, the faith to do what I hoped for came forth by the hearing of the word to run. If you can remember how it was starting out with any type of exercise, we all had a starting out goal that we set in which we believe that we could handle. Annnd we got started to find out if we could reach the goal in which we had set, and we went all out full of excitement as the hope tank had not yet been replaced by the truth tank. And why did we initially go all out with excitement about our exercise plan? Answer is, because we set forth a goal (the word) in which we believe we could handle. The goal or the word set forth is not the truth, but it is the word in which we believe, and where our faith comes to start us out. And why do we know that the goal or word that we set forth to start out on is not the truth? Because no one starts out to stay the same, as we all start out to gain. If all these running years had passed by, and allowed me to only start out, to finish out producing the same one mile, forget about the cost of living increases, mere natural inflation alone would have bankrupt me if I had not increased my production. We all must prove forth that where we start out is not our truth.
Speaking of starting out, and proving our truth, the Father is the one that I’m really making all this fuss about. He is the one in who we seek, once we start to seek that in which we hope for. You already knew that this one was coming: Romans 12:2, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Yes, the Father makes us deal with the truth that we are trying to handle, that we may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. First of all, just take your skill level to the next level just by knowing that the place you start at in the Word to bring to pass whatever it is that you hope for, better not be the same place you are at half-way through the Godhead process: always remember that you start out to gain, and not start out to remain the same. When we start out on the Word of God, do not forget that we are starting out at a place that we can handle, and not to fall asleep in the cool of the day because things will soon heat up. The plan of the Father is that through the mystery of the Word, he can camouflage you along, closer to the truth, before you have to start dealing with it. When you first start out, all is fine with that fresh new baby Word. Then you have to confront, not remaining conformed to the place where you are, as the mystery of the hidden truth starts to show up to make the change. Let’s just say your current place favors the color red, but truth was covered up in blue. Here is where you meet your first transforming opportunity, if you can flow from the red color on into the blue color, and not get stuck mentally by the red, you will be transformed spiritually by the renewing of your mind into the next faith substance of the Word. It is always the cover of the Word used to transform you closer to the truth or the gain. The mystery is in how you deal with the distraction of the cover to avoid being conformed, in order to be transformed beyond it, to where the next level truth is waiting for you to continue. The cover or distraction that you deal with can come as a color, good or bad knowledge, good or bad attitude, even sickness, or anything to serve as the dressing room from being conformed into being transformed. So when you have to deal with the cover, don’t get stuck or conform to the cover; but flow on or transform on beyond it to the next truth, and then be ready to do the process again to the end.
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good.
