Next Level Living
By Greg Sanders

The next level of God’s activity in your life begins by taking steps of obedience in the place you are now. God most often leads us into new dimensions of His activity in our lives step by step. In John chapter 9 there was a man who was born blind. Jesus gave this man an opportunity to receive healing by giving him a command to follow. John 9:6 says that “Then he (Jesus) spit on the ground, made mud with the saliva, and spread the mud over the blind man’s eyes. 7 He told him, “Go wash yourself in the pool of Siloam” (Siloam means “sent”). So the man went and washed and came back seeing!”

Jesus demanded this blind man engage in a difficult task before receiving his healing. He had to walk a few steps of faith in his current condition before he could receive His preferred condition.

The blind man could have used his blindness as an excuse. He could have said that it was too hard to find his way. However, his desire for healing was greater then the difficulty in front of Him. T.D. Jakes once said, “Don’t allow your past or present condition to control you. It’s just a process that you’re going through to get you to the next level.” That is good advice for anyone who desires for God to do something new in their life.

The blind man walked to the pool blind, he walked back seeing. To enjoy the walk back, you have to make the trek there. The transformation you are praying for will likely begin by stepping out in obedience before anything changes. Obeying God when nothing changed opened the door for God to change everything.

Today’s Challenge: Realize that God’s obeying command may be your invitation to experience a better life. The commands of God are actually opportunities for God to show up and do great things in your life.
