Ladders of progression.
I am sensing that this is a season of ladders of promotion and progression into higher levels in Gods Kingdom and what He is establishing on the earth.
Perhaps what we have experienced in the past is that it has been like the game of snakes and ladders.
What happens is that all too often, the chances were after you got a ladder, the next thing coming your way was a snake to keep you back on the level.
There will always be the ebbs and flows, this is part of the natural progression, but notice that the word is progression.
The Kingdom of God is progressive.
Faith is progressive.
Gods children do not grow backwards into a spiritual recession.
I am excited about what is coming up for the Body of Christ and in Gods Kingdom, His will is done on earth.
The past may seem like snakes and ladders, along with the sweet progression comes too many downers, where you find yourself demoted.
Is that just to keep you humble?
Humilty is OK, but it doesn't mean humiliation and knock downs to teach us a lesson.
I believe the balance will spin into our favour.
The word of God confirms this truth.
Romans 5:20,21 NKJV
20 Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more,
21 so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Where there are downers in life, Jesus came to provide the way up again in more abundance, that is greater in measure, more fulfilling and achieving a better result even after the devastating effects of the downer of sin.
Everybody has weaknesses, everybody attracts snakes, sometimes downers come as no fault of our own, but due to the fact that we are living in a fallen world and with that we are subject to the bondage of corruption, this means bad things do happen.
Romans 8:1,2 NKJV
There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.
2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.
However, we as believers no longer need to be under condemnation and the inevitable effects of a corrupt world. There now is a law that is tipped in our favour and far more abundant than the law of sin.
Furthermore, we read in Romans 8:21 NKJV
21 because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
Despite the fact that we are born into corruption and are living in a constant state of decay, there is now a promised freedom that the children of God possess.
The times may be darker and troubles may be increasing as we move closer to the end of the ages, however, as chaos abounds and is increasing there is also a greater abundance of grace that is increasing for Gods children to rule and reign above the storms.
Snakes may come, but we can rest assured that the ladder of progression by faith, will deliver us in greater measures, as we progress to eternal life and receive all of the benefits of being co-heirs with Christ.
Abraham was limited by his body being good as dead. (Romans 4)
We are all limited by our fallen nature of sin, this can be like the snakes finding an attachment on us to send us back down again.
I believe God is saying His grace abounds more and He is sending a ladder of grace to lift us up again into new levels that take us beyond our limitations of yesterday. The abundance of grace will bring us into the new experiences and the freedom of being a new creation in Christ.
God is not limited, so we are not limited, we can take our faith to the next level due to the abundance He has provided for us to reign in life.
Receive your ladders of progression into the more abundant grace that is greater than the effects of sin that restricts our advancement.
Snakes may have caught us out in the past and kept us back down.
However, Gods ladders are greater and move us ever forward into the higher places in the Kingdom of God.
If you feel like you have had more than your fair share of snakes, be encouraged, be enabled by the abundant ladders of grace that He is pouring out for us to progress in the greater ways in the coming days.
We all need a helping hand to find our way up ladders of progression.
He gives you grace to be and grace to do what you were created to be and do.
