Next Level


“Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.’” Ephesians 3:20


Listen to athletes and coaches speak and an often repeated phrase you will hear is, “next level.” I want to take my game to the next level… Let’s get our team to the next level… Next level for a high school athlete refers to playing in college, while for a college athlete, it means playing professionally. Having vision, dreams, and goals are essential for individuals and teams to maximize potential.

What if we took the same approach in our walk with Christ? The verse above describes 5 levels and how God is at work to take us to the Next Level:

  1. Status Quo – Things in my life for which I have not asked God’s help
  2. Ask – Getting God involved through prayer
  3. Think – Letting dreams of a stronger walk with God fill my heart and mind
  4. More – God is able and willing to do more than even our thoughts and dreams and imaginations
  5. Infinitely – Not just more, infinitely more!

This verse tells us that His mighty power is at work within us to accomplish Level 5 living! May we experience His power at work in our lives and may it result in Him getting all the glory.

  1. What things are you facing for which you haven’t even prayed (Level 1)?
  2. What does God taking you to Level 5 look like in your daily walk? Your sport?
  3. Who on your team will be impacted by your Level 5 living? How?

Jeremiah 32:17; 2 Peter 1:3; Philippians 1:6


“Lord, may my high goals of accomplishing amazing things in life be surpassed by the goal of walking closely with You, praying continually, and seeing You do infinitely more than I can ask or think.”
