Apostle Grace Lubega
Romans 6:4(KJV); Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
Faith has degrees. The degree of faith determines the results of your faith.
For example, when it comes to faith, there are people who stopped at Calvary. Their understanding of the liberties of the Spirit is limited to the wounding of Christ for our transgressions, His bruising for our iniquities, His chastisement for our Peace and His stripes that healed us(Isaiah 53:5). That is a degree of faith but it is a lower degree with its own limitations.
In this degree of faith, you may believe in the forgiveness of sins and in the healing of the sick and yet never walk in the fullness of the life we were birthed into as children of the Most High God.
There are others who went past Christ’s death at Calvary to the life beyond His grave. They died with Him, were buried with Him and raised up with Him into the newness of life.
This is a higher degree of faith that launches you into understanding the oneness that you have with God, the authority you carry as one seated with Him far above all principalities and the perfection that you carry in Spirit.
We all carry the responsibility to grow our faith.
If faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God(Romans 10:17), what word are you listening to? Are your ears dull to higher spiritual realities? Can your spirit bear heavier insights into the person of God?
Never be averse to revelation, treating it like heresy and religious sacrilege. The greater the depths God launches you in His Word, the higher the degree of faith.

GOLDEN NUGGET: Faith has degrees. The degree of faith determines the results of your faith. The greater the depths God launches you in His Word, the higher the degree of faith.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this truth. I am strong in faith and by it, I give glory to You. My heart is open to know You more and as You launch me deeper, I fly in the liberties of the Spirit.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
