Simple Obedience

God wants us to be breaking through into new places as He is always calling us to come up higher. All that is required is for us to say yes. It is His grace and Spirit that will help us to do all that pleases Him.

God does not require us to know all the details of how to do things, but looks for simple obedience. When we say yes to Him, then He will speak more details to us. He shows us what to do as we give Him the "OK."

Tuning in to His Channel

At this point, all He requires from us, as always, is to follow the directions. But what does it take for us to get on His frequency? There has to be a hunger and desire for more of Him, His will and His desire for our lives. This is the starting point. If this is not there, then we can't even begin to follow God. Are we finding our contentment in HIM or are we just content with nothing? If we find our contentment in Him, we will seek Him MORE because that is where our satisfaction is found.

In the place of seeking God, He, in His goodness, gives us more: more understanding, more revelation, more direction and more of His presence. How do we seek God? Paul understood this as he told us to set our minds on things above, not on the things of the earth. God wants us to be heavenly minded so we can be "earthly good." All goodness is sourced from Heaven.

Make It Personal

As we press in for more of His glory, it begins with our own lives. If we want revival in the world, our nation, our region, our city or our church, it first begins with more of His glory in us personally. It is superficial to say we want more of God when it is not accompanied with sacrifice. There is a price to pay for breakthrough, and we must be willing to take the first steps. (Photo via Pexels)

We need to get on God's frequency. Jesus told us that His sheep hear His voice, but we, as His sheep, must be in tune to His voice. We cannot live in compromise with the spirit of the world and expect to hear the voice of God. Why? Because that is being in tune with a different kingdom, a different sound and a different voice.

Sensitize Your Heart

As Believers in Jesus, we need to learn how to sensitize our hearts to His Spirit. There is a seduction that comes from the spirit of the world to stuff our spiritual ears with junk so that we no longer discern the voice of God. There is compromise that comes when we submit to a religious spirit rather than the Holy Spirit. It causes us to no longer function in the Kingdom of God, but rather to become a puppet in a form of godliness that has no power (2 Timothy 3:5).

This is why we need to practice not just what some call the presence of God, but the presence of the Holy Spirit. We need to practice the glory of God – the reality of God's presence discovered and experienced in the anointing of the Holy Spirit.

Eight Practical Steps

What are some practical steps we can take to move into this reality of the Holy Spirit that has been bought and paid for through the most costly sacrifice of Jesus Christ?

1. REALIZE your spiritual condition. Be honest with yourself. What are you compromising? Do you call sin what it is, or just justify it? Do you realize God's Word is the absolute standard to live by, or are you just living by your own opinions?

2. REPENT of a lifestyle of sin and compromise. We are to call sin what it is. Jesus died for our SINS that we might be free from sin. You don't get grace to live in sin, but grace to be free from it.

3. CHOOSE to follow Jesus and obey His voice. Say YES to Jesus without compromise. Follow His directions for your life. Live by His truth, as the Bible is your standard for living. Accept nothing else. As you fill your heart with the Word of God – Scripture – then you will be learning to tune your heart to His voice. When He speaks personally to you, obey His voice.

4. WELCOME the Holy Spirit into your life. Jesus told us that He would send the HELPER – the Holy Spirit. He is not an option, but we are commanded to live by the Spirit. The sons of God are led by the Spirit of God, the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:14).

5. MAKE AN EFFORT to change your current lifestyle. Be practical in your choices. You want to do things that will make your relationship with God living and experiential!


a. Seek God through fasting, prayer and studying God's Word.

b. Make the words of God your choice meditation every day.

c. Replace old sin habits with new holy habits. You must change the cycle of sin patterns. You may have to find new friends if the ones you currently have lead you in the wrong direction. You have to be the leader as you follow Jesus. You lead others as you follow Him. (Photo via Unsplash)

7. UNDERSTAND that you represent Jesus and His Kingdom, not a religious institution. Find a church family that is about advancing His Kingdom. Surround yourself with Believers who are in pursuit of God.

8. LEARN TO ENJOY GOD. God is the creator of fun, adventure and discovery. He is eternal, so He never runs out of adventures! God desires you to find your JOY in Him. When you learn to enjoy the Lord, His goodness flows like a river into your life.

A Higher Place

God wants you to break into a new place – a higher place. The good news is that there is no limit to how high you can go! If you sense you need breakthrough, set your heart in His direction in a fresh, new way. Set your course for adventure in the Lord, as He want to use you in ways that you cannot even imagine!
