Week 1 | Friday – The Next Level
Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.
PSALM 20:7, NIV
In order for us to live God’s way, we have to trust Him. We have to believe that He is for us and that He’s not going to hurt us or take advantage of us. But learning to trust God is a process. Here’s what that process looks like:
First, God calls you to do something. No matter where you’re at, God will call you to join Him at some new level, some new challenge. But that means sacrifice and surrender. So next, you’ll wrestle with God. “God, was that really You or just the pizza? God, that’s crazy! How could You ask me to do that? What will people say?” But what comes next changes everything—you hear God speak. You receive revelation. Maybe it’s in a prayer time, or maybe it’s through someone else. But it fills you with vision and passion. Then finally, you come back to God, openhanded, and you re-surrender.
You never outgrow this process of trust. Spiritual maturity isn’t skipping a step, it’s moving through the steps faster. Remember, whenever you reach re-surrender moments with God, they are actually invitations to join Him at the next level. As you embark on this Beyond journey, think about where God is trying to take you with Him. Are you ready to go to the next level?
