No one is capable of living independently except for those who are given special direction and guidance by the Holy Spirit, for they require the ministry and shepherding of those who are used by God. Thus, in each age God raises up different people who rush and busy about shepherding the churches for the sake of His work. Which is to say, God’s work must be done through those whom He looks favorably upon and approves of; the Holy Spirit must use the part within them that is worthy of use in order to work, and they are made fit for use by God through being made perfect by the Holy Spirit.

True Meaning of Faith in God
So many people believe, but so few understand what faith in God really means, what they need to do to beat with God’s heart.

They’re not serious about this because it’s unfamiliar and strange. So they are far short of God’s demands. If you don’t know God and His work, can you be fit for His use? Can you fulfill the desire of God? Believing that God exists is not enough. That’s too simple, it’s too religious. It’s not the same as real belief in Him. True faith in God means you experience His works and His words on the faith that He’s sovereign over everything. Then you can free yourself from corrupt disposition and fulfill God’s desires in your life and come to know Him. That’s the way to true belief in God. That’s the way to true belief in Him.
