At the beginning of the year, God gave Schlyce a powerful prophetic word for 2019. In it, He said to make listening to His voice, knowing Him, and abiding in the vine our number one priority. It is now the beginning of the fourth quarter of the year and He is still saying it! He’s still saying it because living in union with God is the key to living your best life, fulfilling your life purpose, and experiencing true success.
When we live in union with God His life is expressed through us!
In this powerful podcast, entitled the “Levels of Awakenings,” Schlyce discusses the process that we all go through as we learn to abide in Christ and live out of our true identity in union with Jesus. Each of these “levels” is actually a state of being or consciousness that is driven by a particular mindset:
⦿ Victimhood – The state of blaming, complaining, and being offended. When we are in strife or conflict with someone, ultimately at the root, we are really fighting for the right to be the victim. Victimhood is a lack of ownership for what is going on in our life. It is the same mindset as the Israelites had after coming out of slavery.
⦿ Empowered – At this level we stop playing the blame game, and begin to own our life and destiny; the past doesn’t define us! The problem here is that it is all self-effort, “Look what I did.” (Think the rich young ruler.) Although being empowered is better than victimhood, it’s not the ultimate goal and is usually frustrating and exhausting.
⦿ Surrender – Sooner or later, something will happen in life that we have absolutely no control over, which is when we finally get to surrender (releasing control since we have none anyway), and usually only after we’ve exhausted ourselves in our self-effort. This is a place of surrendering our agenda and letting go of our independence.
⦿ Union & Abiding – The final and best level is living in union and abiding while God does the work through us and life becomes a divine flow without toil.
As we go through and bounce around these levels of awakening, we are really navigating through the illusion of separation into the reality of oneness. In the process, through the grace and power of the Holy Spirit, we grow into the measure of the stature of the fullness of Jesus. Why don’t we just stay in the “union and abiding” level?
