Advancing into the next levelMicah 2:10 says, “Arise ye, and depart; for this is not your rest.

God is interested in moving His people forward. He wants us to make steady progress in life – that is part of prosperity. He has His own ways of moving His people to the next level. It is never His plan that His people will be stagnated in life marking time. “Then the LORD said unto Moses, Now shalt thou see what I will do to Pharaoh: for with a strong hand shall he let them go, and with a strong hand shall he drive them out of his land.” (Exodus 6:1) God wanted to move them out of slavery so that they could be free to serve Him.
Seeing His people later not making progress years after they left Egypt, God said “Ye have compassed this mountain long enough, turn you northward” (Deuteronomy 2:3).

Where you are now is already tired of you, in case you are not tired of it. A higher place is waiting for you! The turbulence you are going through now is an indication that you are long overdue for a change. when you are due for a change and you don’t move, God organizes some ‘heat’ around you to forcefully move you forward. So when you begin to see some unpleasant situations or challenges around you, before you bind the devil, tell yourself, “I am due to move to the next level.”
You must keep moving because you need to create space for those coming behind you. They are eager to take your place, so when you don’t move they get tired of you and overtake you. You are either moving or you are pushed out of the way. Sometimes the things that are pursuing you are simply helping you to arrive your destination earlier than you planned.
Micah 2:10 says, “Arise ye, and depart; for this is not your rest: because it is polluted, it shall destroy you, even with a sore destruction.”
It is dangerous to remain on one spot because after some time, your celebrated success becomes polluted. If you stay on there, it would destroy you and if you stay a bit longer, it will destroy you with a sore destruction. That means stagnation leads to irreparable destruction. That will not be your portion, in Jesus name!
People become stagnated because they refuse to move when they ought to. It pains me to see people with great potentials becoming stagnated in life. There are people who used to be ‘stars’ in their careers, but because they refused to change position, they have been left behind and all the younger folks who came many years after, have overtaken them. Now they are full of castigations and backbiting. This happens in every field of Endeavour, everyone who is not making progress will ultimately castigate the one that is making progress.

God is anti-stagnation. He is against everything that is opposed to His program for your life. When the children of Israel came out of Egypt after four hundred years of bondage, the Egyptians pursued after them and they found themselves between the Red Sea in front and the Egyptian army behind. They were stranded between these two dangers so they lifted up their voices and wept. But God said to Moses,

Wherefore criest thou unto Me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward.

Exodus 14:15

In the same way, there may be mountains standing in your way right now, resisting your advancement, but the Word of God says, “Go forward!” Whether by going over, under or by the side of the mountain, you must move! Life is designed for motion and when it is void of that, it becomes frustrating.

Isaac was a typical example of a man that demonstrated undeniable advancement to the next level in the book of Genesis 26: 1-4, 12-14 The bible says Isaac began to move from one level of greatness to another.

The level of opposition: It is adversity that leads to advancement. Isaac’s greatness was born out of the striving of the Philistines against him. “And Isaac’s servants dogged in the valley, and found there a well of springing water. And the herdsmen of Gerar did strive with Isaac’s herdsmen, saying, the water is ours: and he called the name of the well Esek because they strove with him. And they dogged another well and strove for that also; and he called the name of it Sitnah. And he removed from thence and dogged another well and for that they strove not; and he called the name of it Rehoboth; and he said, For now the Lord hath made room for us…” (Genesis 26:19-22). Each time the Philistines strove with Isaac he moved forward and as he was moving he was leaving them behind. He kept moving till he got to a place that they could not strive for because it was obvious that he was greater them, and they had no choice but to bow down to him.
When you see adverse situations pressing on you, it is an indication that your season of advancement is close by. As a matter of fact, those who make progress in the absence of oppositions cannot be compared in terms of results, testimonies and experience with those who keep advancing in the face of adversity. So, if you must make progress, you must learn to take advantage of adverse situations and use them for your advancement you will agree with me that it is only those in position that faces opposition. When God promote, there will be many opposition. at every advancement to the next level there is always an opposition for Joseph it was Potiphar’s wife and his brothers. He was severely opposed and his dream was almost shattered but at last Joseph dream was revived. No matter the opposition to your next level God will keep your dream alive in Jesus name Beloved, It is a known fact that if you do not want to be opposed then stop praying to be on top or promoted,
Level of Envy: Genesis 26:12-13 Isaac planted crops in that land and the same year reaped a hundredfold, because the Lord blessed him. The man became rich, and his wealth continued to grow until he became very wealthy. He had so many flocks and herds and servants that the Philistines envied him.
After God bless him, the whole philistine envied him. of course I nobody envy a failure after all t is better to be envied than to be pitied,. Nobody envied a liability.
Therefore it is my prayer that you will get to the level of envy in Jesus name. You friends and foes will envy you as you undeniable move to the next level of greatness in Jesus name.
The level of overloaded (abundance) and Reconciliation: Genesis 26:26 Meanwhile, Abimelek had come to him from Gerar, with Ahuzzath his personal adviser and Phicol the commander of his forces. 27 Isaac asked them, “Why have you come to me, since you were hostile to me and sent me away?”28 They answered, “We saw clearly that the Lord was with you; so we said, ‘There ought to be a sworn agreement between us’—between us and you. Let us make a treaty with you And now you are blessed by the Lord.”
The bible says philistines came back to reconcile with Isaac. You enemy will reconcile with you.
A man of God has asserted that “when you are loaded you will be needed “and indeed sought after. Because Isaac got to the level of abundance all his foes begged to be his friends. May the Lord take you to the level of abundance where you will have more than enough in Jesus name
