"He brought me up also out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay. He set my feet on a rock, and gave me a firm place to stand." - Psalms 40:2
The journey from minimum to maximum requires undiluted commitment and continuous self-investment, which can only come to fruition on account of God's exhibition of His grace towards you. To boil it down, you need to take GIANT STEPS, which presupposes your willingness to make unswerving commitment to press forward. In spite of running up against several oppositions, Apostle Paul pressed forward toward the mark of the high calling of God for his life. He got off the minimum level and gravitated towards the high point of his ministry. Hence, for you to transition from minimum to maximum, you need to put paid to taking baby steps and begin taking giant steps.
Moving from minimum to maximum would be a tall order without GOD'S PRESENCE. Because Elijah was a carrier of God's presence, He outran the chariot of Ahab. The overtaking anointing gave him the speed to get ahead. Hence, you cannot afford to think lightly of God's presence in your pursuit to get into your limelight. Because God's presence was with Joseph, he got to the climax of God's plan for his life. Once you carry God's presence, His great grace would make your race to finish strong a walk in the park.
Finally, it's worthy of mention that it's not applaudable to get off the starting block without reaching the finish line. While some people get a big head because they think they have arrived, those who are full of GRATITUDE TO GOD keep enjoying supernatural upgrade to reach their high point. Because they credit God with their accomplishments, God oversees their fulfilment and all round satisfaction. If you keep swelling with pride as an ingrate, you would keep digging the well of your destruction. Therefore, have a change of heart today. May you get to your topmost level as you give yourself to your goals, while overflowing with God's presence, coupled with your continuous expression of gratitude to Him for taking you thus far, in Jesus name.
