8:22, Philippians 3:13-14
Now it came to pass on a certain day, that he went into a ship with his
disciples: and he said unto them, Let us go over unto the other side of
the lake. And they launched forth. *Brethren, I count not myself to have
apprehended: but this one thing I do, 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
are new heights to attain and you are yet to experience all there is to
experience in life and in God. There are greater victories to be won.
There are more souls to be reached. There are deeper levels in God and
there are greater moves of the Spirit that God wants you to experience.
There are more competencies and capacities that you can build into
yourself. You can be more impactful and profitable with the abilities
that God has given you.
There are more territories that God wants you to occupy till Christ
comes. Isaiah 54:2-3 says, enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them
stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy
cords, and strengthen thy stakes; For thou shalt break forth on the
right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and
make the desolate cities to be inhabited. Enlarge your vision, keep
learning and developing yourself, keep praying and pressing deeper into
God, keep ministering and being a blessing to others, keep expanding and
occupying territories until Christ comes.
Many times, discouragement and lack of zeal appear just before you are
about to experience a new level. Never let even what you think you may
have achieved or attained in life or in God keep you from pressing
forward. Dissatisfaction with your current level should stir you up for
your next level. Like the wife of the prophet in 2Kings 4:1-6, the oil
God has given you will not stop overflowing until you tell yourself that
there are no more vessels to pour into.
