Levels of Faith with More Details

1 Peter 2:2-3 (NIV)

2 Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may
grow up in your salvation,
3 now that you have tasted that the Lord is

*The first time I dedicated myself to God, and actually took it seriously, I was capable of unstoppable faith. I would speak things into existence with confidence, similarly to how I did in the world, and it would occur expediently. There were barely any doubts in mind about what God could do, & I thought being saved would be a breeze with few or little bumps in the road. I was on a spiritual bottle, and had no idea how deep the rabbit hole goes when u truly dig into your purpose and understand the essence of your salvation. Picture it like a video game: Each level may get harder, but there are greater rewards to receive and deeper assignments to achieve. However, some of us get use to drinking spiritual milk or get stuck on a certain level, and expect the same or greater results. However, that is not going to be the case. There will come a time when God wants us to stretch our faith, clean up more of our mess to become more tidy, and take on harder things for the expansion of His will. Are you ready to go deeper in salvation and eat whole foods?...Foods that now require preparation with more intricate spices and steps in order to receive a four course meal? As a Christian, things will not often drop from the sky, God will not accept any old effort for too long, and it will take more then just reading the Bible and witnessing to a few individuals. This is why James 1:22 tells us not just to listen to the word, but be doers as well. There is much to do, clean up, establish patience for, and prepare for when you really dive into the word and take it seriously. What is it that we are willing to do or not do, and how is that impacting your level of growth? Trust me, it takes more then a simple Amen...For me, it is the deep test of trust, patience, and not wavering. What's yours???
