I Will Exalt You Lord. 6. You Raised Me Up. INTRODUCTION We give glory to God as we conclude our 7 days New Year and Fasting Revival today. We glorify Him for the lives of all the ministers He has sent our ways and the messages they delivered. None of God’s promises to us shall fall to the ground in 2021. Remember, it is our year of Divine Lifting/Promotion/Exaltation/Elevation. Also don’t forget to declare daily, where others are cast down, there is a lifting up for you. You are destined to be lifted. No one is permitted to bring you down for any reason. When God exalts you, no one can humiliate you. When God elevates you, no one can abase you. Today, as we conclude, I want to expose you to the kind of lifting the Lord has in store for us all this year. It is a triple/threefold elevation. This I found in Isaiah 52:13 that we have read today, EXALTED, EXTOLLED and VERY HIGH. DIVINE PLAN FOR OUR ELEVATION- (Isa. 52:13) Let us begin by examining how some versions of the Bible render this verse. 1.NIV/LB-Raised, Lifted Up and Highly Exalted. 2. RSV-Exalted, Lifted Up and Very High 3. Cont. Eng.-Great Praise and Highest Honour. 4. NLT- Highly Exalted. 5. AMP-Exalted, Extolled and shall stand very High. 6. GW-Respected,Praised and Highly Honoured. 7. MSG-Exalted, Tall and Shoulders above the crowd. All these will happen to you in the year 2021. Amen. The Hebrew words employed are also worthy of note. These are, 1. Exalted- “Ruum”- go up, lift up, hold up, mount up, promote. 2. Lifted- “Naza”- advance, arise, honour, magnify. 3. Be High- “Gabar”- to soar, raise up, to raise high. This is also qualified with the word “meh-ode” which means exceedingly, greatly or very. From the look of things, these three verbs describe the experience of Jesus and His exaltation as found in Phil 2:8-11. He was lifted high beyond humiliation. It was a triple elevation seen in his resurrection, ascension and glorification to the right hand of God. The three-fold emphasis is to underscore the magnitude and certitude. You will also testify to same in 2021. Amen. REQUIREMENTS FOR TRIPLE ELEVATION. Today, I shall speak briefly on two requirements for your triple elevation. The rest I will share at tomorrow’s service. Don’t miss it as I preach on the topic, “Your Pathways to Divine Lifting.” If you want to experience triple elevation. 1. BE THE LORD’S SERVANT All versions are united in this. This is a promise for the Lord’s servant. The Hebrew word is “ebed” which means bondman or bond servant. This year, you must be the Lord’s servant and not the servant of sin, flesh or satan. Anyone advising you not to serve God is looking for ways to deny you, your triple elevation/lifting. Will you allow them? 2. ACT WISELY If you are going to experience triple elevation, you must act wisely. The Hebrew word employed here is “sawkal” which can be interpreted intelligent, deal wisely skillful or prudence. This informs why some versions call it prudent, deal wisely, prosper or do well in undertakings. You must act wisely in at least four ways this year. a. Be diligent with God. Not a year for the foolish. Be wise in worship, service, obedience, submission and thanksgiving. b. Be Dilligent with Men- Fellow men, your boss, your job, your friends and your foes. According to our passage, your diligence determines your prosperity. c. Be Dilligent with the Devil- He will play many tricks to discourage you, dissuade you, distract you frighten you or confuse you. Do not listen to him, do not obey him. Do not let him talk you out of your elevation. d. Be Dilligent with your opportunities- Ensure you are not losing time. A stich in time saves nine. Avoid procrastination in the year of your divine lifting. Act wisely. CONCLUSION The Lord is set to lift you up this year and it will be a triple elevation. You shall be exalted, extolled and be very high. You will rise, be more exalted and will stand high. The three verbs signify the commencement, the continuation and the climax of the elevation. It means you shall triumph powerfully and gloriously. Just like Mordecai in Esther 6:10-11, God shall exalt you, men shall extol you and with both you shall be very high than the enemy. So shall be your testimony in 2021. Triple elevation is yours. Amen. Shalom. PRAYER POINTS 1.
