Nov 6, 2016 – Sunday Inspiration: How To Access The Realm Of Unending Progress In Every Aspect Of Life
From scriptures, we discover that every redeemed child of God is ordained for Next levels supernatural. Next Levels, in this context, connotes unending progress and advancement in every aspect of our lives. As it is written: But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day (Proverbs 4:18).
What this implies is that we are not permitted to have a better last year, month or yesterday. In other words, our journey in life is ordained to go “from glory to glory” all the days of our lives.
Let’s examine three scriptures that validate this truth:
The Bible says: Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he (Matthew 11:11).
From the above scripture, we understand that of all born of women, which includes all the Old Testament saints, there is none greater than John the Baptist. Then the Bible says: notwithstanding, he (Redeemed child of God) that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he (John the Baptist). That means, we as children of God carry greater potentials than all the Old Testament saints, including Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Daniel, Joseph, and other Kingdom giants in scriptures. As such, we are ordained to be greater than them. Therefore, we are destined for unending progress and there is no limit to the impact we are ordained to generate on earth.
The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here (Matthew 12:42).
Jesus speaking in the above scripture said that though the whole earth came to listen to the Wisdom of Solomon, His own (Jesus’) wisdom is greater. In another account, Jesus said, “As My Father has sent Me, so send I you.” This means that inside every believer lies the redemptive capacity to operate in the realm of a “greater than Solomon” (John 17:18; 20:21).
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father (John 14:12). Every redeemed child of God is destined for greater works than Jesus ever did. That means we are ordained to produce greater exploits after the order of Christ; the kind that would keep speaking long after we are no longer here on earth, if Christ tarries.
However, though “next levels” is the heritage of the redeemed, it is not accessible by wishing. Therefore, how do we access our realm of next levels?
Redemption: This is our guaranteed access into realms of unending progress, because only the “just” is ordained to supernatural advancement on every side (Proverbs 4:18).
Revelation of the Word: Putting God’s Word to work engenders our access to next levels. However, until we picture unending progress in our mind’s eye as our portion, we cannot access or manifest same. Remember, no one ever arrives at a future he cannot see (Genesis 13:14-15; 2 Corinthians 3:18; Isaiah 60:1-3, 8, 22).
Obedience of Faith: When we are committed to obeying every of God’s commandment, we commit Him to keep changing our levels from glory to glory. For instance, obedience was the stronghold of Abraham’s faith. We understand from scriptures that every instruction God gave to him was executed with timely, delight some and stress-free obedience. No wonder he was changing levels supernaturally (Genesis 12:1-4; 17: 1-14, 24; 22:1-3; Philippians 2:8-9; Deuteronomy 28:1).
Therefore, we need grace for timely and delightsome obedience to every instruction given to us by God or His ordained prophets, in order for us to keep changing levels all through the year.
Tireless Stewardship: Tireless and productive commitment to Kingdom stewardship is another platform that engenders our continuous advancement. “Kingdom stewardship” here implies serving God and the interest of His Kingdom. When we do so, God empowers the giants in us to come alive. Remember, no one rises higher in life than the quality of Kingdom stewardship he/she engages in. Again, we understand from scriptures that serving God and the interest of His Kingdom is a covenant platform that launches us into the realm of next levels. For instance, in the parable of the talents in scriptures, the servants traded with their “pound”, returned with results and they experienced change of levels. Similarly, when we engage in spiritual stewardship, our enlargement, advancement and change of levels is guaranteed (Luke 19:13-19; Matthew 6: 33).
Therefore, as we engage the principles stated above, I see God changing our levels supernaturally and the giant in us rising supernaturally in the name of Jesus Christ!
Are you born again?
If you haven’t accepted Jesus Christ as your Saviour and Lord, you can do so as you say this prayer: “Lord Jesus, I come to You today. I am a sinner. Forgive me of my sins. Cleanse me with Your precious Blood. Deliver me from sin and satan to serve the Living God. Today, I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Thank You Jesus for saving me! Now I know I am born again!”
