Chinaemerem Joshua Ibezim
Joshua 4:14 NKJV "On that day the Lord exalted Joshua in the sight of all Israel; and they feared him, as they had feared Moses, all the days of his life."
Until God exalts you, you will continue to struggle for endorsements and recognition. But when God lifts you up, and announces you to the world, even presidents will salute you. And make no mistakes about it; divine exaltation is not all about occupying an office or bearing titles. You can have all the titles in the world and still be irrelevant; you can also be in a great position and not be respected. You must let God exalt you.
Perception matters. You can have a fantastic message; you can have very important and relevant skills and talents; but if people have a wrong perception of you, you will continue to struggle as any other man without what you possess. That's why many gifted men die unknown!
It doesn't take God much to exalt you; just one act of His will make you celebrated for life. It took just one wise judgment of Solomon to command global attention and respect: The Bible says, "And all Israel heard of the judgment which the king had rendered; and they feared the king, for they saw that the wisdom of God was in him to administer justice." 2 Peter 1:17 says Jesus received from God the Father honor and glory when such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Glory: “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” When God spoke from heaven He instructed all men to hear Jesus. Hallelujah!
You are divinely exalted from today in the name of Jesus! Your voice will be heard, and when you speak, men will listen! God will exalt you in school, at home, at work, in your country and in the world, in the name of Jesus! When you step into a place demons will flee, in the mighty name of Jesus! You are divinely lifted and no force will bring you down. So shall it be; in Jesus name. Amen.
