Lk.5:37-38 (AMP) And no one pours new wine into old wineskins; if he does, the fresh wine will burst the skins and it will be spilled and the skins will be ruined (destroyed). But new wine must be put into fresh wineskins.

Welcome to #NextLevelSeries!

You are much bigger and better than this. Your latter end is definitely greater than your past or present life. And your future status is much greater than any thing you’ve ever experienced in God’s eyes.

However, can you just imagine God dropping a physically bigger you in your present clothe or shoe size? It sure wouldn’t fit! Your clothes would burst open and your shoes would literally tear apart. What an ugly sight it would be! In fact, you could even be injured in the process!

Everything comes to us that belongs to us if we create the capacity to receive. – Rabindranath Tagore

That is very illustrative of your next level as relates to your level of preparedness for the very status you so much desire.

Can you for a moment picture where you’d like to be with the eyes of your mind? Can you see your married life, your promotion, your new house, your expanded business, your (you name your next level)? Beautiful, isn’t it?

A simple reality about the journey to your Next Level is that your level of preparedness for that level also determines how fast you will arrive there.

According to wordnet.edu, Capacity is the capability to perform or produce.

A simple reality about the journey to your Next Level is that your level of preparedness for that level also determines how fast you will arrive there.

It was Rabindranath Tagore who said that Everything comes to us that belongs to us if we create the capacity to receive it.
How true!

One of the major causes of delay on this voyage is this capacity thing! Many people do not have enough capacity to contain that level yet. They just can’t accommodate it in this present ‘skin’.

To get to your next level, you need to increase your capacity in certain areas of your life!

This means you might be required to put on a dress or shoe size bigger figuratively, and in the words of Richard Templar, ‘Act one step ahead…’ in certain areas of your life.

Enlarge the place of your tent, and let …the curtains of your habitations be stretched out; spare not; lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes, for you shall spread abroad to the right hand and to the left…
Is.54:2-3 (AMP)

Prayer:

Lord, please paint for me mental pictures of the preferable future You’ve planned for me and also grant me the grace to start walking and living in the reality of those pictures from today so I can live prepared for my day of visitation. Amen.
