Bobby is one of those guys I really listen to. He’s the real deal. If you’ve not heard any of his stuff I encourage you to get some of the messages online. He’s a man who sees God. Bobby has recently posted a word of encouragement for this year. Hope it brings you hope and faith:
Proceed to the Next New Level
In a profound encounter, the Spirit of God said, “It is time to go to the next new level!” I was instructed to prepare a remnant of Believers to position themselves to advance to the next new level. I said, “Lord, I don’t like the word remnant, it seems too selective.” He replied, “Don’t misunderstand; this invitation of advancement is open to all who will obey. Gender or age makes no difference, it is an issue of the heart.” All are called but few will come!
Divine Dissatisfaction Producing a Holy Hunger!
The Spirit of God is fanning the flame of discontentment within the heart of many. We can’t remain satisfied and contented with our lack of power and spiritual authority; a cry of desperation must burst forth. “Enough is enough!” Ask yourself this question: Am I willing to pay the price to seek the Lord for promotion? This will be a season of swift acceleration and advancement if we put God first.
We are instructed to seek the Lord while He is near (see Isaiah 55:6). We are reminded that we only find the Lord when we search with all our heart (see Jeremiah 29:12-13). If we make seeking Him and His Kingdom our top priority, He will take care of everything else (see Matthew 6:33).
There is a wonderful grace offered for us to advance in the times of adversity! The invitation is extended to all saints; however, by a lack of commitment many will disqualify themselves. This is a time to be desperate for the revealed glory of God. One of the marks of these overcomers will be hunger and complete dissatisfaction with business as usual.
This holy hunger will drive us to seek the Lord on a much more increased level. Jesus states, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled.” The Amplified Bible reveals, “those who hunger and thirst for righteousness (uprightness and right standing with God)…shall be completely satisfied!” (Matthew 5:6).
It’s time to remove all lids of limitations off and believe God for big things (see Ephesians 3:20-21). One way not to miss God’s new thing is don’t think it is already here. Yes, we are so thankful and grateful for all that God is doing, yet there is much more. The promise is that the whole earth shall be filled with the knowledge of God’s glory (see Numbers 14:21 and Habakkuk 2:14).
The Spirit of God is stirring our souls and awaking our hearts to seek deeper depths and higher heights. This is the time for you to go all out for Christ and the Kingdom of God. Don’t hold back; surrender yourself completely to the control and guidance of the Holy Spirit. The statement is so true: deep is calling to deep (see Psalm 42:7).
Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:19
You have heard [these things foretold], now you see this fulfillment. And will you not bear witness to it? I show you specified new things from this time forth, even hidden things [kept in reserve], which you have not known.
They are created now [called into being by the prophetic word], and not long ago; and before today you have never heard of them, lest you should say, “Behold, I knew them!” Isaiah 48:6-7
We do not have time to delay, the Spirit of Truth is preparing a remnant to proceed to the next new level; we must advance and make progress(see Ephesians 5:14-15). In this next new level, we will begin to grasp a higher, clearer insight into the majesty of the Master. Prepare to behold the living Lord Jesus in a much clearer way. It is time to taste the hidden manna reserved for overcomers revealed in Revelation 2:17:
“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it.”
I pray that 2012 will be filled with the overflowing favor of God upon you and your loved ones. Embrace the promises of God’s new day. Expect to see God’s mighty power!
