Thursday, 11th July, 2013. CHANGE YOUR LEVEL

Memorise: And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great: Genesis 26:13

Read: 2 Kings 2:9-15

It is possible to wine and dine with the
King of Glory and not have a life
transforming encounter with Him. Several
crowds that followed Jesus remained
onlookers: just seeing the signs He
performed without having personal
testimony. May you not allow complacency
to rob you of your full potential in Christ. If
you look at the life of those who become
champions, there was a time when they
were just potential champions – a time
when they were yet to fully develop their
potential. But later on, they moved on
from that point. Take for instance David:
by the time he was anointed to be king in
the presence of his brethren in 1 Samuel
16:11-13, he was a potential champion. In
fact, Saul was still on the throne. Also, in
Judges 13:24-25 when the Spirit was
moving Samson from time to time, he was
just a potential champion. Similarly, in 1
Samuel 3:2-18, Samuel was a baby
prophet who did not even know how to
identify God’s voice. So was Elisha in 1
King 19:19-21 when the mantle was first
put on him.
In every potential champion, there is a
seed of greatness. Yes, whether you
believe it or not. There is a seed of
greatness inside of you. If you are born-
again, God has planted a divine seed in
you. It is not every potential champion
that will eventually become a champion. If
you allow the seed of greatness to lie
fallow in you, you will never go beyond
being a potential champion. It is okay to
begin as a potential champion but a
terrible offence to die as one. Every
potential champion would need to face
several situations, circumstances and
experiences before becoming a champion.
For instance, after his first anointing, Davis
was anointed again before becoming king
over Judea (2 Samuel 2:4). In 2 Samuel
5:3, he finally became king over all Israel.
This was when is potential was fully
realised. Similarly, it was in 1 Samuel
3:19-21 that Samuel became an
established prophet over the whole of
Israel, while in 2 Kings 2:8-15, Elisha
became an established prophet. There is a
price to pay to move from being a potential
champion to being a champion. If David
could pay the price and move, you too by
God’s grace will pay the and move to your
place of destiny.
Every champion started as a potential
champion. If they could change their level,
so can you. Father, move me to my next
