I'm going to tell you my ultimate faith accomplishment. Yes it's a mountain moving deal. First let me set you up for the secret so you understand the scale of this miracle.
You have faith. True faith moves you on a journey toward selflessness because it's the posture of power. On our own this is impossible because the flesh is corrupt, sinful and yes ... selfish! When you don't have God providing for you and blessing you, then it's every man (woman) for himself. When you've got God the Father as your source of everything good, being selfish is a liability guaranteed to short-circuit the faith flow.
We know from the famous words of Jesus in Mark 11 that we can speak to mountains with belief in our hearts, and have what we say. Mountain moving is great fun! Pam and I have cast mountains of debt out of our life, called opportunities into our sphere, and unlocked doors we were told would never open. In the end though, my greatest mountains defeated have been internal. Face it, no matter what you accomplish with faith outside the skin of your being, if you cannot master the mountain of selfishness internally you will be doomed to live on the roller coaster of the soul's destructive demands.
Your biggest enemy is not the devil; it's your unruly soul. That's what your spiritual weapons are for, pulling down strongholds and casting down selfish imaginations (2 Corinthians 10:4-6). Why try and defeat someone or something Jesus has permanent victory over? Colossians 2:15 says that our Lord triumphed over principalities making an open show of them with the cross. Say this, "Jesus has already defeated the devil for me!" Praise The Lord! It really is finished.
Since we've got a defeated enemy on our hands, what should the focus of our good fight of faith be? It's to deal with our carnal nature and the instinct to let our souls lead us, like we did before we got saved. Romans 12:2 instructs us to not be conformed to this world's way of doing things, but to be transformed! That can only be done by faith. Having your mind renewed is an act of faith. People don't change. Yes they can be transformed from the inside out by faith, but the flesh is corrupt with fruit God calls vanity - that means empty. To put it another way, selfishness ends in emptiness.
Living by faith produces a selfless life, which is a blessed life. It does not mean life as a doormat. That would dishonor God because remember, you belong to Him. Being selfless is to follow Jesus' example who humbled Himself (Philippians 2:8), and put His Father's will above His own (Luke 22:42). To master your mind, will and emotions with faith is a far greater accomplishment to God's glory then starting a thousand ministries. Jesus put it this way: "For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?" (Mark 8:36-37)
Living selfless is living large, healthy and prosperous. Selfless living is fearless living because God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power, love and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). Love gives. How? By faith. Not just money, but also the really valuable stuff like forgiveness, praise, encouragement, honor, devotion, credit, and the list goes on.
My greatest faith miracle of all time is this: I bless others with what I want the most; I celebrate their wins; I praise Jesus for their answers. It's takes faith to be selfless, and the greatest evidence of being fearless is your giving. 'Faithing' mountains IS fun because there are always rewards on the other side. Don't wait another second to engage your faith and start shaking, quaking and 'faithing' mountains. The mountain of self is blocking your greatest blessings. You can move it!
Father You have given so I can live a life of giving. I reject a fruitless, selfish life and choose the blessed life of faith. I humble myself (1 Peter 5:6) under Your hand and speak blessings on those around me. When someone curses me, I bless them in honor of You (Luke 6:28). I am continually being renewed into the image and likeness of You Lord Jesus (Colossians 3:10).
2 Corinthians 3:18
And all of us, as with unveiled face, because we continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit.
The above is a great scripture that further enforces the context of the above idea.
