SOW TOWARDS YOUR NEXT LEVEL – By Pastor E. A. Adeboye
Memory Verse: Isaiah 32:20:“Blessed are ye that sow beside all waters, that send forth thither the feet of the ox and the ass.”
Read: Isaiah 32:15-20
Isaiah 32:15-20:“Until the spirit be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness be a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be counted for a forest. Then judgment shall dwell in the wilderness, and righteousness remain in the fruitful field. And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever. And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places; When it shall hail, coming down on the forest; and the city shall be low in a low place. Isaiah Blessed are ye that sow beside all waters, that send forth thither the feet of the ox and the ass.”
Everyone has a next level. As successful as you may consider yourself to be, there is a level you have not attained, a height you have not climbed, a feat that has not been achieved. No matter how anointed you are, there is a level of anointing you have not reached. The earlier you realise and accept, the better for you. Many people like Moses saw their next level but could not enter in. may you never be a victim of seeing but not possessing your blessing in Jesus name.To enter your next level, you must be prepared to sacrifice your Isaac. The next level comes by sacrifice. How much are you willing to give to enter into your next level? Similarly, you can enter into your next level by sowing. In Genesis 26:2-14, we see how Isaac entered into his next level through sowing the seed he had at a period of famine. There are seeds and there are fruits. Seeds are meant to be sown while fruits are meant to be eaten. Seeds are for the future while fruits are for today. If you are wise like Isaac, you will never convert the seed that should give you a tomorrow into a fruit that should sustain you for the moment. Isaac virtually starved when he sowed what others should have eaten. He suffered a while but when the yield came, he became greater than the nation which ate their seeds. Those who sow their seeds will always be greater than those who eat their seeds. In The Redeemed Christian Church of God, there is a track record of meaningful sowing. It is the sowing of the past that has brought us to present location. In Port Harcourt, a woman sowed three of her houses and landed property. Sometimes, some people would empty their pockets for the work of the Lord. I have had to sow my car too. What are you willing to give to move to your next level? If what you are prepared to sow is far from what God expects you to sow, your seed will be unable to deliver your next level.
- No matter how high you have gone, there is still a height you have not reached.
