A Higher Level Of Living;
“But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way” (1 Corinthians 12:31).
You may never be able to see beyond your present horizon until you change your present position to a higher one. The higher you go, the farther your horizon will be. It’s the same thing spiritually. When you begin your walk with the Lord, most of the dancing you do may be in the flesh. You may dance with all your might to praise God until you’re sweating profusely. But then God would begin to teach you how to magnify Him without moving your body. You can be lying on your bed and still have a glorious time of praise and worship. Then comes a higher dimension where you realize that there’s such a thing as praising God in the spirit and dancing in the spirit. At this higher level, your dancing is not birthed by human emotions or physical ability, rather it’s your body’s response to what’s happening in your spirit. This is when you’re so lost in God that your body can’t stay still anymore. So your clapping, dancing, or shouting is actually the physical response to what’s going on in your spirit. The truth is, it’s your spirit that was actually clapping, dancing or shouting, your body only went along. Can you now see why some people could burst into laughter under the unction of the Holy Spirit? This is a higher level of living in Christ Jesus. You need to grow spiritually; you need to leave the level of life you’ve been living for a better and higher one. Make your spiritual development a priority today. Move beyond merely praising God in the flesh and with the emotions of the flesh, and learn how to praise Him from within. Train your body to follow the move of your inner man, and not the other way round.
