EVER INCREASING GLORY BY PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME.
The Lord our God spake unto us in Horeb, saying, Ye have dwelt long enough in this mount (Deuteronomy 1:6).
As a child of God, there’s always a higher realm of glory for you; there’s always a higher level of success to aspire to. Regardless of the successes and victories that you’ve experienced thus far, there’s still so much you can achieve! You can still ascend higher and move to the next level in your journey of success, for there’s no end to the glory of the child of God.
Some people function at a certain level of productivity and wouldn’t aspire for more until they get tired of that present level. Well for me, I don’t like to wait until I am tired; I like to make more progress! That’s the life we have in Christ-it’s a life of ever-increasing glory! Thus my journey of success is in one direction: upward and forward.
Never be comfortable to remain in one spot for too long, no matter the laurels you were decorated with at that level. There’s more. Aspire to go higher. In the course of their journey to the Promised Land, the Israelites once dwelt in Mount Horeb. But seeing they were making that location a “comfort zone,” God admonished them through Moses to move ahead.
Also, at Shiloh, Joshua challenged the children of Israel saying, “…For how long will you wait here, while there’s still so much land for you to possess?” (Joshua 18:3). Even at age eighty-five, Caleb was willing to go to war and claim more lands for Jehovah (Joshua 14:10-11). What a man! You were called to a life of unending success, victory and prosperity: “But the path of the just is as a shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day” (Proverbs 4:18).
I pray for you today, that the Holy Spirit will open your eyes to see and apprehend your next level of success. May He enlighten your heart to comprehend the next and higher level of glory and victory that He’s prepared for you, and impart you with the divine ability to ascend to that level, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
