1 Samuel 2:8 (HCSB) “He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the garbage pile. He seats them with noblemen and gives them a throne of honor. For the foundations of the earth are the LORD’s; He has set the world on them”
When you read the record of God’s doings in the lives of men and women in the bible, it will amaze you, how God can upgrade a man’s status within a second. The Bible is full of stories of upgraded lives and status.
There are stories of men, who slept yesterday as prisoners, but go to bed the next day as princes. There are men, who were ordinary slaves last night, but became celebrated statesmen, the next morning. God does what He pleases, when He wishes; and He does it, without consulting with any man.
The Bible says, “He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the garbage pile. He seats them with noblemen and gives them a throne of honor. For the foundations of the earth are the LORD’s; He has set the world on them”
The dust is not a permanent place of residence, for the poor; the Lord has got a seat for him, among noblemen. The needy will not always be found at the garbage pile; a day is coming, when he will be seen dinning at the throne of honour. God is an expert in changing story into glory. I don’t know, where you are currently, but I have got good news for you, you have not reached your final destination, you are just passing through.
The Lord is at work, to upgrade you. Where you are currently, will be like dust, compared to the level you are about to come into. You are moving from garbage pile, to the throne of honour. Get ready, the Lord is about changing your story for His glory, and there is no devil that can shut you out of this, in the name of Jesus Christ.
What should be our disposition towards men and women in their seasons of obscurity?
Father, upgrade me to the next level even this year, in Jesus’ name. Amen
