His way of doing things is so much better.

Day 17: Read Matthew 16, concentrating on verses 13-20. Go beyond your last revelation! Nobody could get more revelation than Peter. He went beyond what he knew and Father connected with him. Press in! Let Father reveal beyond what you presently know.
Day 18: Read Luke 22; meditate on verse 31. Go beyond your last sifting! Peter could not get the revelation deep enough in him to hang on to what he was seeing. He had received the prophecy for the generations ahead but was then called satan within fifteen minutes. His mind and emotions overtook him. When you can’t keep your new identity, you go back to looking like who you were. If you can’t keep and secure the revelation God’s bringing to you, there is a place called sifting on your road. Basically, Jesus said, “Peter, when you get past this place called sifting, all you can do then is to strengthen your brethren. If you try to go another route, satan’s going to have you.” It’s time to be on the road to beyond!
Day 19: Read Luke 24. Go beyond your last trauma and death experience. We have to see how Jesus took a group beyond the prophecy of a previous season. When Jesus died, it threw them all off, because they couldn’t “get” the prophecies. This is a synopsis of what Jesus told some of them on the road to Emmaus: “If you could have just known the Scriptures, you could have gotten this, but you couldn’t see beyond the trauma and what you expected to happen.” He’ll take you beyond your last trauma and death experience and open your eyes into a realm that you couldn’t see or understand from the old place you were in.
Day 20: Read John 20. Go beyond your last ability to fear and forgive. On the first day of the week, the disciples were all together, because they thought all they had left was each other. They locked the door because they believed that the same ones who killed Jesus would come and kill them (v. 19). Jesus then showed up in the room the disciples were hiding in and said, “I’m taking you beyond your last ability and where fear is gripping you.” Are you aware that the fear you’re engulfed in is related to what you’re capable of doing? Some of your fear is because you’re relying upon yourself to pull things off, and you can’t do it. He said to them, “Let Me bring you past that fear, and let Me commission you to go and forgive.” That was the only way they could move forward, and the same holds true for us. You won’t get to your beyond unless you can get past the signpost called forgiveness. You have to get past sifting, fear, and forgiveness, and then you can go beyond.
Day 21: Read John 21. Go beyond the last understanding of your call. The Lord is extending new calls to His people. The disciples went beyond, but then they went right back to what they used to do. Are you aware that’s a very dangerous place for all of us right now? We’re faced with the choice of going beyond where we’ve been or going back to the season from three and a half years ago. The disciples went back to fishing. They took up their business again. But Jesus met them in the business! Don’t be deceived or get into the religious lie that you can’t prosper if you are not doing what you’re supposed to be doing. He can prosper you even when you’re not doing what you’re supposed to be doing. He can allow you to prosper. He helped His disciples prosper in their business. (Photo via youwall)
After they recognized Him and had eaten breakfast, Jesus talked with Peter. Jesus could have said to Peter, “If you do love Me, do you remember that prophecy I gave saying that you would be sifted like wheat and then you’d have to strengthen your brothers? You’re going to have to go back into your call. You’ll have to go beyond your last three and a half years and into a new type of call.” You would think Peter would have fallen on his face and said, “Here I am, Lord!” But what he actually said was, “What’s going to happen with John?” Jesus answered him and basically said, “What is that to you? I’m asking you if you will go beyond.” Jesus was not talking about shirking responsibility but was asking this: “Will you keep following Me, even if they decide not to?”
The gate called beyond is open to you. Go through! Go through the gate!
