Elevation


Sometimes we can see, feel or taste the end result of prominent or impacting situations we encounter. However, the depth of these feelings is usually led by our perception of what the outcome should be. That is why many a times when things get tough, we give up, question God and sometimes even blaspheme his name. We have become a people who got accustom to retrieving things we desire at the snap of a finger,  in our fast pace world and due to this, we are now trying to apply this said principle to God’s hands. The entralling fact is, we cannot move His hands like we may be able to manipulate everything else around us. This culminates to a hard fall for many. “Doesn’t God love me? Why me? What did I do to deserve this? I live right! And I am STILL here”!

Please be thoroughly informed that you will continue to be “there” until God is ready to elevate you. After being taught for a semester, we are placed under a situation that is sometimes grueling for many called examination. During this time, the lecturer will not speak but gaze at us with intensity as we try to recall and apply what we would have learnt. As the cliche statement says, “It’s not that the teacher is not there. He is silent in the test”. This principle can also be applied to God. In that, before elevation, one must be examined. If the test is passed, automatically we will move up the ranks and in contrast, should we fail, unfortunately (or fortunately) we will have to rewrite the examination.

Either way, it will not be easy because our character will be proven through either process (elevation or repeating the exam). The higher we go or the more we grow the greater the test. That’s why we are mandated by God to be STILL and know that he is God (allowing him to take us through each step). Once we know the word and can apply it to all situations, it will in the end work for us. The word of God cannot lie. It is the one thing we can call truth. There is no obscurity in the word and it will do just what it was set out to do. In my humble opinion, if things in life were acquired easily, we would not be appreciative of them when they are received. Our appreciation for God would also be increased when we are going through the elevation process. Because it is in this, we will be able to say, if it had not been for the Lord on my side where will I be?  

Listen my dear friend, do not despise your mountains or valleys but in everything give thanks because all things do work together for the good to them that love the Lord and are called according to his purpose. Understand that the latter will be greater but we must sow before we can reap. Don’t spend time wallowing in sorrow but spend time in the word, praying and fasting. Seek first the Kingdom of God and it’s righteousness and all things shall be added unto you. Be still and know that he is GOD. He will never leave or forsake you. To be elevated, one must be disintegrated and then regenerated. Keep your head up for the best is yet to come.

Daily Digest: What Will Be Found


When Christ searches the church assembly what will he find? If he searches YOUR HEART, what will he find? 

Will he be pleased? Will he be grieved? Will you hear well done my child, keep abiding or will he say, turn from your wicked ways lest I cast you away? 

Though we stumble and fall at times, the word of God says we have an advocate who makes intercessions on our behalf. Therefore, we are always equipped with the chance to make things right. Yet, we make excuses and wallow in the sin, guilt, shame and condemnation of our mistakes (which was already nailed to the cross with Christ) allowing us to stray from God even further. A plan that the enemy enjoys and accelerates. 

Understand that you were bought with a price (the blood of Jesus) and nothing can separate you from the love of God. Therefore take time to make it right with him. He is waiting for you with open arms. His word says: 

For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 1 Peter 4:17 KJV

What shall be our end if what he finds is not pleasing? Lets make a firm decision to make it right TODAY. Tomorrow might be too late. 

Prayer: Father I thank you for your word. I pray by your Holy Spirit you search my heart today. Remove all the things that’s against your word and fill me with the attributes of the Holy Spirit. In Jesus name I pray. Amen. 

ARISE!
