GOING AN EXTRA MILE

Sep 19, 2023

There is a call from the presence of the Master. God is inviting all of us to migrate irrespective of our status or title and I pray that we will respond to the voice of the Holy Spirit as we deepen our walk with Him.

In whatever position you are in; housewife, preacher, etc. understand that this call has nothing to do with the position but a personal walk with the Master.

Matthew 25:1- 4 “Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish. Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them, but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

The day is coming when that level of fellowship will not be able to sustain what will be coming at you. Therefore, you need to step up from where you are today.

The difference between the five foolish and the five wise virgins, was the extra oil. Add an extra to everything you are doing, go beyond the ordinary or what you are used to regarding your fellowship with God. Take it a little higher.

For when the midnight hour comes, you will not have enough oil to sustain the light because you did not want the inconvenience of carrying an extra container of oil. Then you will only see but not access or touch what you have been waiting for all these years because it will be too late. 

I challenge you to be like the five wise virgins. Go an extra mile, go beyond the ordinary, go deeper, for this is what makes you extraordinary. Ask the Holy Spirit to give you specific individual instructions on the things you need to do towards upgrading yourself.  This is how we will navigate in the last days.

Isaiah 60:1-2 Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the Lord will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you.

You have to be positioned or properly aligned for that glory to rise upon you. There are things, places or relationships you will have to drop so that you can be properly aligned to experience that light.

Matthew 17:1-9 Now after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, led them up on a high mountain by themselves; 2 and He was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light. 3 And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him…9… “Tell the vision to no one until the Son of Man is risen from the dead.”

Jesus left the nine, took the three and their eyes were opened to see the glory. The nine were in a place where they were unable to see anything while the three were in a place where they were able to see the glory. However, this took the three an extra effort of climbing the mountain to go where they were able to see.

Let your desire match your sacrifice; that activity that will guarantee the manifestation of those things. It is not enough to desire, pay the price! The Holy Spirit will give you the ability to pay the price if you learn to yield to Him.

The days we are in are not ordinary days. Do not be caught off guard like the five foolish virgins and miss out on what you have been believing for all these years. You have to look for the oil that will sustain your lamp, pay the price now. God will ask certain things of you that will be painful but are good for you because of where you are going. Obey the Holy Spirit instantly.

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, WE LOVE YOU.
