The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord, searching all the inward parts of the belly. (Proverbs 20:27)


As we receive revelation of the gospel of the Kingdom, we will rise to a higher level in every area of our lives. The standards of this world and its system are much below the standards of heaven. In the economic system in the earth, for example, when we invest money, we expect to receive interest back. One hundred percent interest or doubling an investment would be a great return. However, in the Kingdom of God we’re able to bank on another level. We’re able to sow a seed and receive a thirty, sixty, or hundred-fold return.

The Kingdom of God is on a completely different level than this world’s system. To live in it, we will have to live from the inside out, not the outside in. We were never intended to live out of our mind and flesh; we were intended to live out of our spirit. The spirit is the part of us that will receive revelation of the Kingdom. Proverbs 20:28 says, “The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord, searching all the inward parts of the belly.” God guides us through our spirit, not our mind.

We were made to operate on a higher plane than just head knowledge. We were made to live by revelation in our heart. When we do, we can see what the world can’t see—the Kingdom of God.


Dear Father, I decree that beginning today, I am rising to a higher level. I am operating in the Kingdom of God and am no longer limited to the ways of the world. I receive revelation from You for my situation and believe You for Kingdom results. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
