Are you intolerant?
My friends and I prayer walked this morning and chatted about intolerances to lactose and gluten, and the sicknesses that many people endure. We then landed on another intolerance that strikes me as the most beneficial.
Jesus had this intolerance very much at work in His life.
No sickness could stand in His path. Jesus simply would not tolerate anything that was not His Father’s will.
The conversation then begged the question, what am I tolerating that Jesus does not. As children of God we have been given a royal platter of promises for every area of our lives, but the authority to walk in the fruits and results of those promises remains with us.
You can have what you accept and say.
That’s as simple as it gets.
Your faith will be activated by what you allow in your heart, and put in your mouth.
“But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise… The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;” (Romans 10:6–8 KJV)
“We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;” (2 Corinthians 4:13 KJV)
We believe and therefore speak.
We will speak life, or death. There is nothing in-between. The spirit realm is not a neutral realm. It is life and death, black and white, truth or error.
What are you allowing that should be bound. What exists in your life that does not exist in heaven?
What are we, the children of God, toleranting here on earth, that is already bound up above?
Lack of love intolerance.
Instead of defending my failures, I want to call them out to the light of God’s Word!
I will frame my future with the Word of faith, not words of doubt, compromise, and resignation.
