There’s a kingdom principle available to all of us where there is always a next level. Paul talks about this in Philippians 3:12-14
I do not mean that I am already as God wants me to be. I have not yet reached that goal, but I continue trying to reach it and to make it mine. Christ wants me to do that, which is the reason he made me his. Brothers and sisters, I know that I have not yet reached that goal, but there is one thing I always do. Forgetting the past and straining toward what is ahead, I keep trying to reach the goal and get the prize for which God called me through Christ to the life above.
There is just so much good stuff in there!! It boils down to these two thoughts.
God has new goals for us all the time.
He expects us to work toward those goals.
God built us for adventure. And He has plans for us and our world that He wants us to join Him in. HOWEVER, God is a gentleman. He won’t force us to do anything but He offers us a partnership in the change needed.
Next time you wonder why something is happening or why things don’t change – consider that offer. God may have brought whatever is bothering you to your attention because He wants you to do something about it.
There are always next levels personally and in our world.
What adventures await you?
What are you going to partner with God toward this year?
Hebrews 4:16 “So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.”
