Bold Faith

Bold faith–what is it? Where does it come from? And how did you get it? These are very good questions that I am asked of often. And just last night, as I lay in my bed I started to dream. In this dream I was being interviewed and these are the very questions I heard the host ask me. With my response I started to laugh, “Oh, that’s easy.” He looked at me with a puzzled look. I responded, “It’s because I love God. I know Him, and I trust Him.” With that response that interview could have been over right then and there, but it wasn’t. He wanted to know more.

I am often cited as a person of bold faith, even though I think of myself as a normal everyday person. And maybe that’s a clue to develop a faith that is bold–not to think of yourself to highly, but to research the Scriptures until you discover who you really are in Christ. Allow me to briefly teach you just who you are in Christ.

According to Genesis 1:26-28, Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” This portion of Scriptures teaches us that we have been created in the image of Elohim (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). And this isn’t just any image, but with a little research it means a mirror image. When you look in a mirror what do you see? You see yourself, your image, just as you are. And He chose to give us dominion over every living creature. And he also gave us the command to be fruitful and to multiply, and this means more than having babies, but to produce supernatural fruit by a supernatural means–spiritual multiplication. And as we read in Luke 10:19, Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” In other words, He has given you all His authority over satan and all of his wicked works.

The Bible tells us in 1 John 4:17 that as Jesus is so are we in this world. Jesus is a supernatural being and He operates by the same supernatural power that He expects us to operate with–by faith. And when He walked on this earth, He left His God powers in Heaven and lived like we live–as humans. But one of the life assignments while on this earth was to show us how to live by faith. And I think we can all agree the type of faith He demonstrated for us was bold faith. And as His ambassadors we too are to walk like He walked–with bold faith.

So bold faith comes from knowing and trusting God. And this happens when you press deep into personal relationship with Jesus. And in order to go deep into relationship with our Lord you have to spend personal time with Him, not just a little bit of time, but a lot of time, most of your time with Him. No matter your circumstances you can do this. It is a matter of personal choices and prioritizing your life.

In the early days of starting a children’s home in Guatemala people would ask me how I could spend so much time with Jesus and in His Word. My response was always the same, “I can’t afford not to spend my time with Him.” My first assignment back then was to tend to 17 children (12 adolescent boys off the streets [who were filled with demons] and 5 babies), the next assignment was 14 little ones (and many of them were very sick and fighting death in the beginning). I would sit down on the floor with them playing all around me and I would read to them from the Bible. Whatever I was studying from the Word became the theme of that day. And I worshiped the Lord in front of them and with them. We sang, we danced, and we prayed for whatever the need we were facing was. We did it together. And God used the lives of these children to teach me about the boldest faith there is–childlike faith. I didn’t say childish or immature faith, but childlike. Where you believe without questioning and doubting yourself out of a miracle. And this is how my faith became simple and uncomplicated–childlike.

And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven, Matthew 18:3.

And then came the other aspect of developing bold faith, by learning to be dependent upon God. I had to learn how to activate who I was in Him by depending upon Him for my daily strength. I knew full well that I could not do this on my own. In order to be victorious, I had to gather my strength from Him. When we depend upon our own strength, our own ideas, our own ways–we fail. But when we are dependent upon Him–we win.

    That’s interesting, one becomes converted and then develops childlike faith, in that order. I’m sure it helps to be around children. I’m glad that you started a remnant down in Guatemala, the caravan people are a perfect example of how much your ministry is needed.I’m concerned that the stream of people will become more evil in time.

      Yes, it is an interesting order, but as Christians we have to learn how to believe again. And when we truly believe there is no room for doubt and unbelief. People have to be taught to doubt.
