Just Some Musings…..

Ole Henrik: I find this “law” in operation that when I have conquered another piece of the Promised Land there will always be some sort of a counter attack. I have come to see that these seasons of darkness and suffering are meant to establish us in the obedience of faith. Another way of saying this is that our faith is tested. Each new level of faith contains a testing of that faith until we are established on that level, and by the Spirit move on to a new mansion. Funny this paradox, because we can confidently say in faith that we are already on the top, but, nevertheless, we go through these stages of faith.

When Jesus began his public ministry he had taken possession of his position as a son. What I mean is that he boldly asserted his I. Most Christians are still like the son who remained with his Father in the parable of the prodigal son, who never have possessed their son-ship freely asserting their I as an I that takes for granted that all what the Father has are theirs. This “I” that says that it only does what it sees the Father is doing – the no separation self. It took Abraham 25 years to come to this point of recognition, but when he was there he could say “I and the lad will return” knowing he spoke as God.

Just some afternoon musings……

DeeDee: Those are some good musings! Yes….always tested to settle further and strengthen further….much like a tennis or golf stroke that is practiced over and over until one day it is totally natural.

    Thanks Ole for sharing, your musings are appreciated! I guess boldness will be required by us(me) when it is our time for us to assert our new ‘I’s which I personally would never like to see separate from His I. As far as timing is concerned, I suppose we can only do what we SEE our Father doing and I can only go where He ‘powers’ me to go.

    Ole Henrik, whatever you seem to write is full of light.
    The stages of faith you mentioned are as the classes in the school of Christ. Christ is an eternal, inexhaustible, living, practical and personal university where each class has its own beginnings and testings. To see the rightness of our humanity was to me a new class where the Lord definitely used you in my life. Great to have you around.
