Jesus became the once-and-for-all High Priest who paved the way for unholy man to be able to reach a HOLY GOD.
Christ wants not nibblers of the possible, but grabbers of the impossible. Have you lost your sense of urgency to pray for miracles in the lives of those around you who might desperately need a touch from God?
Sometimes God tells you to hard things, but I have found that He will always give you the courage, understanding, strength, and endurance to do whatever He has called you to do. You CAN DO IT IF you depend on Him.
The “confidence” of Hebrews 11:6 in God is sort of like driving at night. Your headlights can only beam a short distance ahead, but as YOU keep moving ahead they will continue to show the same short distance until you finally reach your destination. God won't always show you the whole picture, but you can have the confidence to know that God sees it and always wants the best for you.
Every person in the Bible whom God used in a mighty way had to go through an “emptying of self.” God could then work through them using His Power to accomplish supernatural things. But it’s a waste of time, energy, and resources to try to do something that is supernatural when you are not allowing God to work through you in a supernatural way.
Emotions aren’t wrong in and of themselves, but you always have a choice as to what you will do when you experience them.
