Prov.2:1-4 (KJV) My son, if thou wilt…incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;
 

Welcome to #NextLevelSeries!

Tired of life as usual?
 
Looking through the scriptures in general and the book of Proverbs in particular, one could observe that good things in life including wisdom, wealth, honour, significance and promotion to thew next level in life don’t come cheap or easy.

In summary, an effort or a ‘press’ is required on our path!
 
Leaving your present level in life for somewhere much higher and better requires exactly the same. There is a hunger and thirst required on your part; in other words, there is a ‘pressing towards’, a ‘stretching forth’ and a ‘reaching out for’ to be done!
 
To move on to your Next Level in life, you have to leave territories you have captured behind and start stretching yourself beyond the constraints of your comfort zones.

… 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. Phil.3 13-14 (KJV)

You have to start reaching out for greater heights and placing greater demands on yourself in certain key areas of your life.

We have identified about three vital areas where we all definitely need to reach out for more. Each of these we will expound in subsequent posts.
 
In the meantime today, please identify some territories you have conquered and need to leave behind, and some areas where you need to break new grounds.

Prayer:

Lord,

I am tired of life as usual! It’s time for me to evolve from what I am into what You made me to be. Please grant me the grace to leave every familiar territory behind and to make the required effort to acquire new knowledge, attain new heights and break new grounds. For Your glory alone. Amen.
