Move Up To
A Higher Level
“Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things
of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth;
shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness,
and rivers in the desert”
God is always doing new things; He’s always charting new courses and opening up new frontiers. This is why it’s in keeping with His character when you become uncomfortable in your “comfort zone” and decide to advance to new and higher levels. This is something you need to do consciously from time to time.
Refuse to remain at the same level for too long. There’s a greater and far more excellent glory than what you’re experiencing at the level where you are right now. Therefore, reach forth to greater heights. The Lord is saying to you “Come up hither!” Move up to your next and higher level in God. Set new standards for yourself in the Word. For example, you can set new standards for your finances. Get uncomfortable with giving the same offerings you’ve given for the last few years. Tell yourself it’s time to move up higher.
Paul said, “…I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:13-14).
There are no limits to how high you can go or how great you can become. So spend some time in prayer and fasting to catch a vision of the new level you should be operating in your family, business, finances, career, or ministry. Then launch yourself into that level by declaring God’s Word and giving a sacrificial offering.
I thank you for showing me there are no limits to how great I can get and how much progress I can make in my walk with you. Therefore, I reject mediocrity or stagnancy. Instead, I open my spirit to receive visions of progress, greatness and excellence, and I receive the ability of the Spirit to function in these new and higher levels,
in the Name of Jesus. Amen.
