My prayer for everyone of you listening is that you will move from lockdown to leaping up in Jesus' name.
Man's hunger for freedom is so intense that every opportunity to be free, he grabs it.
Mark 5:2-4
There is something worse than physical lockdown. He was strong physically. Genesis 2:7-15
He was also strong intellectually. Genesis 2:19-20
But when he sinned, he was locked down mentally. I want to talk to you on mental lockdown. 

How to recognize mental lockdown: 
1. The fellow will begin to regard what is far from best as the best that could happen to him. Acts 3:2-3 
Beware of your mental enemies. There are certain enemies that can lock you down mentally.
Enemy one:
Being clever; settling for average 2 Chronicles 1:6-12
A teacher of mine used to say: 
He who does not know but knows that he does not know will soon be a wise man.
He who does not know and does not that he does not know will die a fool. 
Enemy Two:
Good enough; which is the biggest enemy of greatness 1 Kings 19:19-21
Elisha had it good enough; the heir to his father's wealth.
If he had settled for that, he wouldn't have been the great prophet that he became. 2 Kings 13:14-21
Don't let good enough rob you of greatness. 
The greatest enemy of all is thinking you are great. You can be great but incomplete and think that's all to it. 2Kings 4:8-17
From Lockdown to Leaping Up: 
1. You sense what you are calling normal is not good enough. Luke 11:1
2. You begin to feel that things can be much better. Mark 8:22-24
When you begin to talk of good old days, you need to leap up.
You should be talking of better new days.
3. When you realize that God reserves the best for the last. John 2:1-11, Genesis 24:34-35, 26:12-14
Genesis 30:27-43
Abraham was great
Isaac was very great
Jacob was exceedingly great
Joseph was even greater than all of them.
Don't get mentally locked down.
The first time they told me we had arrived was when we had our first auditorium.
Now we've expanded severally because I refused to be locked down.
The journey to the top starts on your knees.
For those who are not born again, this means kneeling down at the foot of the cross and crying for the salvation of your soul.
