We all have our circle of confidants in which we move to first when something good comes up, and we also have our circle of confidants in which we move to first when something bad comes up. The confidants in our circle to move to when something bad comes up may also get that call when something good comes up; however, the confidants in our circle to move to when something good comes up may not get that call when something bad comes up. The ones that can handle the bad something, will usually be as good with the good something. On the other hand, the ones that can handle the good something, will usually not be as good with the bad something. I believe that I am in my sister’s circle of confidants in which she moves to first when something bad or something unclear comes up. If you add up the holidays including veterans day which includes her, birthdays, thinking about you days; then I will say that we in her family circle may break even in communications. I may edge out the family since I called my sister on veterans day to thank her for her service to the country. I am not saying that other family members did not do the same thing, but if our mom did not forecast something all the way live, then it’s a good chance that I may have edged them out. Yeah, mom is one that you definitely will call for all the good somethings, but she may be the last to get the bad somethings because she will want to share it with every body. I did find out that there were a couple of communications in which the good something circle received from my sister in which I did not. My sister did not leave me out for she understood that as long as she moved it to the right confidant, that it would make it to the rest of us. Now, there were also a couple of communications of bad something, or unclear something that I did receive in which the good circle did not receive; and my sister and I have already dealt with those two somethings to where they exist no more. Everyone should be blessed, if provided, to have a circle with one to where what was said can come to find a final place of rest if need be. The Father Is My First Move To.
I thank God to have had over my life time, a very few circle of confidants in which I could move to with something bad or something unclear; and they not be pressed by that something into a place in which they could not bear to move with me. I am sure we all have had a doubting Thomas in our midst here and there along the way, but remember that it is scriptural for Thomas with all his getting, to get understanding. Thomas with all his getting, as with the other Apostles, had so much coming to try his faith, that Jesus, as only Jesus could do, gave him what he needed to help that which he doubted. In the case of the Apostles, Jesus already knew that they had been pressed with more bad something than they had the faith to bear: Jesus saw this in the garden of gethsemane as the level of his hour being at hand was too much for them to bear. It was not just a matter of praying with Jesus that was on the table, but being able to accept in faith the matter of Jesus going to the cross to die was on the table. Who outside of Jesus at that time had the faith to bear such a burden: even Jesus’ soul was agonized unto death, and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground according to scripture. If you and I had been walking with Jesus in the word of faith for him to go die on the cross; and we were surrounded by all that bad something without being endued with the power of the Holy Ghost’s gift of power faith, then we would also be doubting for the lack of faith for that level: the measure of faith given to every man, and the faith that comes by hearing the word of God, would not be enough to walk at that level without doubt wearing us down. We all have heard the saying used, different levels brings different devils; well then you know the level of Jesus’ mission would bring the highest level of devils. The Father Is My First Move To.
I thank God that we can now be endued with power from on high if we desire to be; therefore, we can walk in whatever level of faith that the word of God requires of us to bring to pass the Will of God given for us to do. I will go to my circle of confidants when I know that their level of faith is significant enough for the word in which I am walking in to bring to pass; however, I will not risk my faith operation by making my first move to those who I may be setting up to fail because of unbelief. When you are speaking with your circle, talk about the word that you are believing God to bring to pass; and if they are not able to offer any substance to support the thing you are talking about, then they may not have the faith for it. It may take a couple of conversations on different days to confirm it, but if you continue to receive no feed back or any substance while just making conversation; then don’t bring them into a faith operation that requires a level of faith they do not have. I do the faith test at home from time to time to make sure we are all on board; or to determine if I may need to help someone’s unbelief before we do it. For example, if I want to go bowling or to the movies, I may just make conversation and say, “did you see the Creed three advertisement today? They say it is the best of the three so far.” If I just get the reply, “no I didn’t see it,” and I don’t get any other substance of support, like, “but we should look into going to see it.” I may wait another round before I suggest that we go to the movies to see it in order to find out if there is something else more preferred to do now than going to the movies. So if I were to elevate this example to something of greater significance, then I am on my way to having a better chance of bringing the greater thing to pass just by checking to see if the faith for it is there first. We can detect if faith exist for a thing with a person just by listening to the responses that are made concerning the thing being talked about to hear the faith: Romans 10:17, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” And how do we know that the responses that we are hearing contains faith that came from when we were just making conversation about the thing or the movie example hoped for? Well, you just listen to hear substance about the thing or the movie for example hoped for: Hebrews 11:1, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” So I will just listen to hear substance about the thing that I hoped for because hearing the substance let me know that I hear the faith that is there. If there is no faith for the thing, you will not hear any substance given for the thing hoped for as the person gives the responses. I will usually wait for the Father to bring forth the faith of another to me, for then I can be sure that the word hoped for will have a chance to come to pass. The Father is my circle of confidants, my first move to, because everything I do, I do unto Father. The Father Is My First Move To.
