Colossians 3:1 (MSG); So if you’re serious about living this new resurrection life with Christ, act like it.
The men who live by a false light have often demonstrated extremes in the lengths to which they will go to prove their faith in their ‘gods’.
One such extreme is shown through a story of a battle in 2 Kings 3:25-27.
The Bible says, “And when the king of Moab saw that the battle was too sore for him, he took with him seven hundred men that drew swords, to break through even unto the king of Edom: but they could not. Then he took his eldest son that should have reigned in his stead, and offered him for a burnt offering upon the wall. And there was great indignation against Israel: and they departed from him, and returned to their own land.”
This battle was won, not because of the might of a man’s army but because he went over and beyond the bounds of human sanity in order to win. He sacrificed his eldest son, heir to his throne.
Men whose allegiance is to the powers of darkness often go to unimaginable lengths to move their ‘god.’
How can a Christian who cannot fast for more than three hours compare to such a man? How can a believer who will not pray because she has a headache compare to such a person?
God does not expect you to kill your child to move heaven but He definitely requires us to shake off the mediocrity with which we approach spiritual things and move heaven through the boldest acts of faith!
If you must start a crazy fast, do it. If you must launch into a crazier life of prayer, then do it. If you must spend yourself like you have never done before until people question your sanity, do it!

GOLDEN NUGGET: God requires us to shake off the mediocrity with which we approach spiritual things and move heaven through the boldest acts of faith!
PRAYER: My Lord, I thank You for this knowledge. Thank You for the life to which You have called me; a life of boldness and great faith. I am determined to step out of the boat because Your Word bids me to do so. I yield my spirit to do over and above the call of duty because I am not an ordinary human being, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
