Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
"The Warrior's Crucible of Faith"
"I will make you a great nation;
I will bless you
And make your name great;
And you shall be a blessing."
This morning for Breakfast we see the beginning of Faith and it's Growth in the Crucible of Faith.
There are two definitions of the word crucible: "a container for melting or purifying metals" and "a severe test." The Crucible produces a new "molten metal."
Our Faith is both a container, and a severe test, that produces a new and battle tested Faith!
With this picture of Faith we understand that the Crucible of Faith must be able to resist extremely high temperatures and not melt.
Abraham's Crucible of Faith was "severely tested" when God told him to take his wife Sarai and leave everything else he had; and go to a land he did not know - at 75 years of age! Abram obeyed and went into the unknown with God.
This month we will see further "severe tests," in Abraham's growing Crucible of Faith; that will continue to produce a new and growing Crucible of Faith.
The Warrior's Faith is forged in the furnace of affliction" (Isa.48:10)
Every hardship, every doubt, and every fear; is added to the growing Crucible of Faith to Produce a New and Greater Faith. (1Peter 1:3-9)
As Christians we have all been given "a measure of faith," (Rom.12:3); but we are expected to Grow this Crucible of Faith. We grow the Warrior's Crucible of Faith by engaging the severe testing of hardship, doubts, and fears in life - with the Word of God, in obedience! "We know that Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God" (Rom.10:17).
This is why the Warrior meets and eats with their Commander and King regularly, for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner each day.
We are Ready for the fight from a severe test, because we are full of the Word of God, and we Deploy the Word of God against Any Test. This is how we fight our Battles .......
We are Growing The Crucible of our Faith! Oooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
