But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint (Isaiah 40:31)
There is a dimension of strength that has sustained you at the level you are now. If you are moving to a higher level, then you need a higher dimension of strength, not only to get there but also to remain there. The person that is moving to the next level therefore needs the infusion of a new strength from the Lord.
This is where the prayer of Paul for the Ephesian brethren is so crucial to all of us right now. It is a prayer you need to pray in faith at this time of the year. That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man (Ephesians:3:16).
We all need to know that success begins from the inside. That is why whenever God is taking someone to a new level, He will first build, develop and strengthen him within. He will begin to develop in him
character, tenacity, passion, faithfulness, integrity, drive and all that he needs to fulfill the plan and purpose of God.
Glory has weight. If you are going to carry a heavy weight of glory, then you must be strong inside to carry it without pressure, without cracking, without breaking, without stumbling, without falling. That is strength. This is why you need God so desperately at this time. You need to spend quality time in the presence of God, to wait on Him, to
seek His face, to renew your strength. When you do, you receive an infusion of divine enablement, you obtain grace to see you through to the next level.
Beloved, at this crucial time of the year, you need to take some time aside to seek the face of God. He will visit and strengthen you for the next level.
O God, thou art terrible out of thy holy places: the God of Israel is he that giveth strength and power unto his people. Blessed be God (Psalm 68:35).
