God is Moving You into New Levels of Kingdom Authority

Perhaps you’ve heard it said, “New levels, new devils.” When you’ve moved into new levels of Kingdom authority, you understand well what this means. Moving into new and uncharted territory and being a pioneer of faith is exciting, but it doesn’t come without warfare. 

The devil hates seeing you prosper in the thing God has called you into. If you’re experiencing resistance moving into new levels of authority that God has called you into, it is critical to stay in His Word, declare it, and ask Him for what you need—trusting He will provide—in this new season. 

What God Revealed

Recently, I was reflecting on God’s faithfulness and how He always comes through with His promises, not always in my time, but always in His. He has put my family and me in sync with His heart as we’ve observed His appointed times and followed His instruction over the past 30 years. But this hasn’t come without resistance. 

He recently revealed that emotions could be a manifestation of the battle many of us face as we move into new levels of Kingdom authority. As we’ve observed His appointed times and developed habits and patterns that have shifted away from the world and into alignment with God’s Word, there have been seasons of high emotions. 

Maybe you are experiencing this…

  • Grief as you think back on your old life, wondering, “Why didn’t I see this truth years ago!”
  • Betrayal as you walk away from your old life, old habits, and patterns that never delivered on their promises. 
  • Doubt as you enter this new level of authority, having deeper revelation and insight into what God is doing but cannot see how it will unfold. 

Have Hope!

If there’s anything I’ve learned in more than 30 years in ministry, it is to be consistent and persistently pursue God’s call on my life. I know there is someone reading this who needs to know that. He will unfold the details as you continue to step out in faith. He is creating a testimony in you. In the consistency lies the victory! 

Write down His words to you. Meditate on and pray into them. Decree His protection over you, your family, and your assignments.

The Old is Gone, and the New Is Here

When you see something coming against these words and promises in your life or mind, confess and tell Him. Call the lie out in prayer, and it will lose its grip. Ask for divine protection. Declare that the lie cannot prosper, but only God’s will be allowed to prosper in you. Then, if there’s been any misalignment, ask for forgiveness and simply start walking in alignment with the promise and the Word. 

The old things have passed away and do not own or define you. The new is here. The old cannot hold you back when you think and walk by the Spirit. He will produce a good fruit. And the time between the sowing and the reaping is the process of divine growth. He is moving you into new levels of Kingdom authority, but in the process, He is shaping your character so that when you operate into it, there will be great exploits and great multiplication done for His Kingdom!

  • “Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.”—Daniel 11:32
