God Wants to Take You to a New Level


Give instruction to a wise man and he will be yet wiser; teach a righteous man (one upright and in right standing with God) and he will increase in learning.
— Proverbs 9:9 (AMPC)

Even though God wants us to live joyful, contented lives, He sometimes causes discontent, or a feeling that something isn’t right, because He does not want us to continue doing the same old things anymore. He wants to prod us to seek Him so He can take us to new levels.

God always wants us to grow stronger, to go deeper, and to increase in intimacy with Him. Most of the time, He brings us into that process of maturity by leading us out of places where we’ve been comfortable in the past. Too much comfort for too long can mean that we’re not growing. If you feel something stirring in your heart but it doesn’t fully make sense, just ask God what’s happening, wait for Him to speak, and He will come through with the answer you need.


Our time with Jesus is vitally important to our growth and maturity, but we cannot do the same things all the time and experience all that He has for us. I’ve had times when reading the Bible became laborious and God led me to read a different translation for a few months. That small change brought so much new growth because I saw things in a different way. Satan tried to condemn me because I didn’t feel like reading the Bible, but God was just trying to get me to make a change in the translation I was reading.

One day during this process, I felt a bit bored as I tried to read and pray so I moved to another chair in my office. Suddenly I saw things that had been in my office for years that I had never noticed before. One little adjustment caused me to see things from a whole new perspective and God taught me a spiritual lesson, all because I sat in a different chair.

Prayer Starter: Father, please show me whatever adjustments I need to make in my life so I can begin to learn and grow closer to You. Thank You for your faithfulness and your willingness to lead, guide and direct me every day. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
