It’s A New Level

Scripture Reading: 1 Samuel 10: 1-12


“And it came to pass, when all that knew him before time saw that, behold, he prophesied among the prophets, then the people said one to another, What is this that is come unto the son of Kish? Is Saul also among the prophets?” (1 Samuel 10: 11)

Our Focal Scripture speaks of the people who knew Saul before time. They saw him prophesying amongst the prophets, and they wondered when Saul joined the prophets. They saw new things happening in his life, and they wondered when the new things began. They saw his life turn around suddenly, and they had no clue how it happened. They saw what they didn’t expect, and they wondered in utter amazement.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: new things are about to happen in your life, and it would amaze those that knew you before the new things arrived. God is set to take you into new realms that will shock those that knew you in your former realms. God is set to turn your life around so drastically that everyone would wonder what suddenly happened to you. God is set to lift you up in such a way that will shock those that know you well.

Saul was not even yet pronounced as king when people around him had already begun to wonder what was going on in his life. There was so much more that was yet to unfold, but those who knew him were already wondering. Hear me as I hear the Lord: as people wonder on account of the new things that God is set to make happen for you, more new things will emerge. More good news will show forth as men wonder about your last good news. You will have more reasons for men to be amazed.

Get set: God is set to shock those who have always known you. They will see the new in your life; they will witness your elevation; they will see you favoured above your contemporaries; they will see you step into new thrones and wear new crowns; they will see you possess the gates of your enemies; they will see you become more and more than you have ever been; they will see you carry your good news with your own hands.

Your new season is here, and no man can stop it. Your next level has arrived, and no man can turn back the hands of the clock.


My new season will shock everyone that knows me; I rise above their expectations, in Jesus’ name!
