I believe that the Father intended to nip this in the bud in the beginning when he placed the man in the garden of Eden, but having been with the man for such a short period of time did not allow Father to see how the man would respond to free faith. When you think about your home, and your kids that you placed in your home; they were not required to have all of the knowledge of how you were so magically abled to supply their needs, wants, and things eyed from their friends. No, you told them the same thing that God told the man when he placed him in the garden of Eden: God told the man that I have planted all that you need for food; and you told your kids that I have to go to to work to have all that you need to keep living here. God did not want them to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil for them to know all about his business. There are many of us, if not most of us, who did not sit the kids down shortly after they came into the home to tell them all of how our going to work makes sure that the magic continues. We, just like God did in the beginning with the man, did not require much from our kids to use their faith. The faith was basically free for them to use without thought or knowledge of how it works. Hebrews 11:1, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Faith is the substance of things hoped for; well, the man in the garden of Eden did not have to hope for food. There was no hope required, just a little dressing and keeping the garden, while continuing to attend those meetings in the cool of the day in good faith. My kids in the home do not have to hope that they have all that they need: my kids can’t even spell hope. They are now at an age where they know why things work out so well for the house, but they still, more or less, just know that the substances needed will be there vs hoping that the substance needed will be there. I call it free faith because faith requires hoping for something that you do not have; and God had given the man all the substance that he needed in the Garden. And my kids. like many of yours, have always woke up to all that they needed for that day without “THEM” having to hope for it. And thanks to the man in the garden, we have had to spend many of days in hope, but it wasn’t the knowledge of good and evil that the kids had to eat. Faith In Father, Not In Father’s Faith.
We can see the difference in hoping (faith) to have the substance, and already having (knowing) the substance. It is so crucial in the faith operation that we are able to take the state of already having (knowing) the substance into the hope stage where the evidence is still yet unseen. We need to be able to be with the Father when it comes to the substance that we need, in the same way that our natural kids are with us when it comes to their needs, wants, and desires of the heart. When my kids ask me for something they want or need, they are not really asking me if they can have it; however, they are asking me how long before they will have it? They already believe that they can have it, and they already know that I can get it for them; the only question they are asking, really, is will this be pick-up, same day, next day, or special order. They don’t doubt their relationship in knowing that it be my will, nor do they doubt that I am able to make it happen; however, they do want to know how long the process will take to get what they want from where it is unto where they are. And this is exactly how the Father wants us to see him: Hebrews 11:6, “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” When you come to the Father with your request, do you already know that he will reward you even when the evidence is still yet unseen? Is your only concern when you come to the Father is to know when will it be delivered: pick-up, same day, next day, or special order? We just need to have faith in Father, and not in Father’s faith. It is so important that we have the correct method of delivery to have faith in Father. We are not able to be in Father’s faith, we can’t keep up with his faith, but we can and must have faith in Father to have what we asked for. When you ask Father, you are really looking to see how is he going to get it from where it is unto where you are. The way that you have faith in Father, and not get overwhelmed by trying to move in Father’s faith is to select the faith in which you believe. Do not pick the faith that overwhelms you to where you can’t walk it out. There is no faith that the Father can’t walk in, but for us, there is much in which we don’t believe yet. If you want to walk in faith in Father, then you must choose the substance that the Father sends your way in which you believe. If substance comes your way that will answer your request, but it seems to be bigger than you can walk in; then don’t walk in it. The Father will send you more substance in which you can believe. There are substances all around you now that could answer your request, but you must believe that the God in you can handle it. It doesn’t help you much to believe that God can do all things, if he can’t do the one thing in front of you. You will be walking in faith in Father, when you walk in the substance in which you believe. You can’t just walk it out; however, you must walk it out and doubt not. Matthew 21:21, “Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.” Faith In Father, Not In Father’s Faith.
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good.
