Gen. 17:5 (GW) So your name will no longer be Abram (Exalted Father), but Abraham (Father of Many) because I have made you a father of many nations.
Welcome to #NextLevelSeries!
You sure need a dress rehearsal for your Next level in life. You need to be mentally prepared for that level to get there!
God gave Abram a new name so he would stop seeing himself as he was, but as he could be. Likewise, you need to start projecting yourself into your Next Level and seeing yourself not just as you are, but as you can be!
If you are going to move on up you had better start practicing now…If you look as if you’ve been promoted, chances are you will be.
– Richard Templar
When attending special events, people normally dress up to suit the occasion regardless of where they are coming from. It is however surprising to discover that in life, people are excellent at getting dressed for where they are. We are not trained to ‘dress up’ for our Next Level.
In his Book, The Rules of Work, Richard Templar said, “If you are going to move on up you had better start practicing now…If you look as if you’ve been promoted, chances are you will be.”
To get to your Next Level, you need to dress, talk, think and act one step ahead! You need to start seeing yourself already in that status and start talking, thinking and acting as if you were there already!
Thank You Lord for reminding me yet again that every miracle happens twice first on my inside, then in reality.
Please grant me the grace to be so expectant of my preferable future as to start living in its very realities from today in Jesus’ name. Amen.
