SEASON OF HIS APPEARANCE — Your Best Is Yet To Come

“Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,” (Ephesians 3:20, KJV)

A wonderful and awesome thing about the Almighty God is that he can exceed gloriously your expectations no matter your level.  He has the ability, capability and the capacity to do that.  This definitely means that even with Godly contentment, God can take you to a height that you cannot even fathom.  This is because his thoughts are not your thoughts and his ways are not your ways.

The Bible says, “ But earnestly desire the]best gifts. And yet I show you a more excellent way.” (1 Corinthians 12:31, NKJV)

Though there is nothing wrong in desiring the best gifts but there is an excellent way to achieving this.

The Excellent Way

We are at a time that has been aptly described as the dispensation of grace.  Paul the Apostle shed light on this when he said, “if indeed you have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which was given to me for you, how that by revelation He made known to me the mystery (as I have briefly written already” (Ephesians 3:2-3, NKJV)

It is a mystery that was given to Paul for the church. It is a means of extension of grace, including everybody in Gods plan and revealing the benefits that are available to us as children of God.

It is a channel to bring those who were before far away closer to enter into the holy of holies with boldness.

It is also a time. This means it must be seized so as not to miss it.  As we begin to function under the unction of the divine one in this dispensation, placing our feet in the path ordered by the holy one of Israel,

there is elevation to a dimension of establishment (please note that the grace is still available, it just forms the foundation).  This is a dimension of ability to do what you otherwise would not have been able to do.  It is not as if you have not been established before you were born but a realization of what you have now become {Acts 4:13; 1 Cor. 15:10}, by virtue of the acceptance of the gift of grace, bestows knowledge.  With knowledge comes a transformation in the thought process {Rom 12:2}.

Since dimension also means levels, and with every level there is at least a devil, there has to be displacement of principalities. Principality simply means the governing authority over a region or the negative encroachment over your positive enlargement.  These are forces that want to prevent you from breasting the tape of success and mounting the dais or platform of glory.

With their displacement comes distinction of power.  People suddenly notice that you are in existence. The difference is that your best is now beginning to appear but it is still not your best because no eye has seen nor ear heard neither have the mind conceived what God has prepared to do in your life.

The reason why this is happening is that you are now beginning to function under the direct magnetism of heaven. The magnet of heaven is able to locate you wherever you are and you become distinct.

Isaiah 62: 1Regarding Zion, I can’t keep my mouth shut, regarding Jerusalem, I can’t hold my tongue, Until her righteousness blazes down like the sun and her salvation flames up like a torch. 11Yes! GOD has broadcast to all the world:”Tell daughter Zion, “Look! Your Savior comes,Ready to do what he said he’d do, prepared to complete what he promised.'”12Zion will be called new names: Holy People, GOD-Redeemed,Sought-Out, City-Not-Forsaken. MSG —- Your best is yet to come

Case Study / What You Need To Do

“So he departed from there, and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen before him, and he was with the twelfth. Then Elijah passed by him and threw his mantle on him. 20 And he left the oxen and ran after Elijah, and said, “Please let me kiss my father and my mother, and then I will follow you.”

And he said to him, “Go back again, for what have I done to you?” 21 So Elisha turned back from him, and took a yoke of oxen and slaughtered them and boiled their flesh, using the oxen’s equipment, and gave it to the people, and they ate. Then he arose and followed Elijah, and became his servant.” (1 Kings 19:19-21, NKJV)

Be Different—found Elisha the son of Shaphat.  God is always looking for the right person to bless.  “ For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.” (2 Chronicles 16:9a, NKJV)

It is what you do before the opportunity arise that gives you the opportunity.  You cannot begin to prepare at the time of performance.  The time of research is never the time of advertisement. “So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one.” (Ezekiel 22:30, NKJV)

For God to find you, you have to be peculiar.  You cannot be different and not make a difference.

Be Diligent—who was plowing. Whatever your state in life, be diligent wherever life has placed you at the moment.  Do not embrace laziness or insolence.

Be Discerning—left the oxen. In life, making a headway most times depends on the things that are not spoken.  Therefore you need to know what to leave so that you can get to your destination.

Be Direct—kiss my father.  You have to learn to say what you mean and mean what you say.  Do not be a trickster.
