Luke 5:37-39 And no one pours new wine into old wine skins. Otherwise, the new wine will burst the skins; the wine will run out and the wine skins will be ruined. No, new wine must be poured into new wine skins. And no one after drinking old wine wants the new, for they say, ‘The old is better.'”

May the Lord deliver us from the taste of the old wine.

Sometimes what hinders us from stepping into the new of what God is doing in our lives is because we are still holding on to yesterday’s goods, beauties

But we serve a God whose mercies are new every morning

Lamentations 3:22-24…….. [They are] new every morning: great [is] thy faithfulness.

He is Sovereign, Infinite, Inexhaustible, you can never arrive in any of Graces in Him, all you can ever do is to go deeper and deeper in Him.

What will move you to experience deeper things of God is your earnest desire.

Mark 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive [them], and ye shall have [them].

The measure of your desire determines the intensity of your prayer and how far you will go into him.

When Satan wants to rob a generation of the deeper experience, he dilutes and distracts their hunger

2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, [even] as by the Spirit of the Lord.

Our beholding differs from one degree to another it is the intensity of that hunger, thirst, a desire that causes you to rise above the ordinary and causes you to see greater things in him and it’s what you see that changes your life.

Isaiah 43:18-19 Remember, ye, not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, [and] rivers in the desert.

You ought to be thankful to God for the great things he has done in your life but always remember that there are still better things for him.

Exodus 33:18-23 And he said, “Please, show me Your glory.”

There is a place by the lord where he can take you so that you can see him.

Revelation 4:1 After these things I looked, and behold, a door [standing] open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard [was] like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, “Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this.”

You can never say that you have arrived. There is always more in him.

Psalms 42:1-8……….As the deer pants for the water brooks, So pants my soul for You, O God.

There is a dimension in the Lord that can answer the question of those who want to know his unusual dimensions. Ask him.!

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, PASTOR BEN OCHOLA.!
