CHANGE OF LEVEL THROUGH THE WORD

The Word: Acts 20: 32(KJV)

32 And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.

Dig Deeper: Acts 20: 32(MESS)

32 “Now I’m turning you over to God, our marvelous God whose gracious Word can make you into what he wants you to be and give you everything you could possibly need in this community of holy friends.

CHANGE OF LEVEL THROUGH THE WORD
I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace,

God’s grace is hidden in his word. Or put in a different way, God’s word is a carrier of his grace. Or paraphrased in a different way: Grace is released to a believer when connection is made with the word. – The entrance of thine word giveth light…..

NEXT LEVEL is primarily a change of level upwards. Grace is needed to make it easy. A lorry can drive up a hill and struggle, A jeep SUV however may drive up thesame hill almost effortlessly. The engine, state of the car, load carried etc makes a difference. Grace makes change of level almost seamless without too much effort or labour. Grace is therefore required for a smooth change of level. God’s word makes that grace available.

Now I’m turning you over to God, our marvelous God whose gracious Word can make you into what he wants you to be

– God’s word has the capacity to make me all that God wants me to be.
– God’s word has the capacity to make my life colourful
– God’s word like the rain and the snow can deliver the future and destiny that God has for me

and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.

There is an inheritance for everyone born again. Everyone born into the family of God has rights to this inheritances. However even though we qualify for the inheritance, we only claim it or lay hold of it through a revelation of God’s word.

As we are getting ready for the church anniversary, we would also be going back into a time and the Spirit of prayers. I want you to be ready to pray until there is a delivery. But how do we pray result oriented prayers? It is by praying God’s words back to him.

Any grace you need is available through God’s word

REVISTING THE PROMISES FOR THIS YEAR
As we have come to a weekend of seeking God and in a month of focus on God’s word, it is important to appreciate that God’s prophecy or promises are equally as powerful or potent as the scriptures. 
The bible is documented promises or words inspired by the Holy Spirit. A direct word to the house is a Rhema (word in real time) which is equally as powerful and relevant for our year. 

Our father said this year is our year of NEXT LEVEL and we said NEXT LEVEL is changing position upwards, moving to the next stage spiritually, physically, maritally as a Church and in every spect of our lives. But for many of us and the church does it look like next level right now? Perhaps many will answer: NO

For some people it might even look like a lower level. But we must not forget that God said we should be expectant of four things.
– New things. He will do New things
– Restructuring. Our lives will need to be restructured and reorganised
– It’s OK to take a step back in order to leap forward
– He will take away all reproach.

Remember Haggai 2:9 The glory of the latter shall be greater than the former. It may not yet look like NEXT LEVEL but God’s word is settled forever. That is what he said. Let’s key in and align ourselves to this.
