Topic: Examples Of People Lifted And Shifted By God [Seeds Of Destiny 2 January 2019 Devotional]
Scripture: They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God. Psalm 84:7
Thought For The Day: It is natural with God to lift and shift the lives and destinies of His children.
Previously, we established that we have and serve a God of supernatural lift and shift; it is natural with God to lift and shift the lives and destinies of His children to higher levels. (Psalm 84:7).
Now, to buttress this point, there are scriptural examples of people whose lives God lifted and shifted in order to confirm that He is a Lifter and Shifter of lives and destinies. A few of them are:
Abraham had a pagan background that tied him down in penury and poverty, then God encountered, lifted and shifted him. He became the father of the blessing and of faith (Joshua 24:2, Genesis 12:1-5).
Moses was a wanted murderer and vagabond who ran away from Pharaoh, but God encountered, lifted, shifted and turned him into a deliverer and a captain of His people (Exo. 2:11-25, Exo. 3:1-12).
Joseph, a slave and prisoner in a foreign land was lifted and shifted by God; he became a generational leader who changed systems in his time (Genesis 41:38-44).
Elisha, a mechanized farmer encountered God and his life was lifted and shifted to the next level prophetically; he became a prophet after the order of Prophet Elijah and inherited a double portion of Elijah’s anointing. (2 Kings 2:9-12).
v. Queen Esther
Esther was a little orphan slave girl who was lifted by God unto becoming the queen of the most powerful empire that existed in her time. (Esther 2:8-17).
Beloved, God lifted and shifted these people and He is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8). The good news is, He shall lift and shift your life this season. So, get ready for a shift of life and destiny.
Remember this: It is natural with God to lift and shift lives and destinies.
- Go through today’s message once again.
- Make up your mind to wait on God until your change comes (Job 14:14).
Prayer: O Lord, I ask that You lift and shift my life and destiny as You did in the lives of people in the past, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
