Divine lifting is a right and a privilege every believer has in Christ Jesus. It is not what you qualify for; it is what you have been qualified for. Every believer is born to be or anything that comes on the way. When a man is divinely lifted, ordinary things turn into extraordinary, natural turns supernatural, the irreversible becomes reversible.
“For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”(Jeremiah 29:11).
The thought of God for you is to be divinely lifted: His thought is for you to triumph in your conquest, to reign on this earth as queens and kings, and to live a victorious life. God has not created any man to suffer: His will is for us to live a triumphant life. For a believer to be divinely lifted, there are some criteria that have to be in place which will be discussed in this chapter. God does not lift any man unaware; there are some tests or stages that a man must pass through.
KNOW THAT YOU ARE SPECIAL
Every believer is God’s masterpiece; you are special from those that do not have the knowledge of Christ.
“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are thy works and that my soul knoweth right well” (Psalm139:14).
“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light” (1Pet.2:9).
When you know you are special, that you are fearfully and wonderfully made, your soul knoweth right well (Psa.139:14). God has called you out of darkness into his marvelous light; you are born to shine and to radiate the glory of God.
“Moreover whom he did predestinate them, he also called; and whom he called, them he also justified; and whom he justified, them he also glorified” (Rom.8:30).
God has glorified you because you have been predestined to be glorified, called and justified.
“For ye are bought with a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s” (1Cor.6:20).
You are God’s own; he bought you with a price (redemption) which Christ paid on the cross of Calvary. He has paid all your debts for sin; sin should not have dominion over you.
For the earnest expectation of the creature awaits the manifestation of the sons of God. The world is waiting for your manifestation. The world would tremble at your presence. You are a victor on earth!
“For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith” (1Jn.5:4).
“Ye are of God, little children and have overcome them; because greater is he that is in you, that he that is in the world” (1Jn.4:4).
Everyone born of God is a victor and an overcomer of the world.
“And when the people saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voices, saying in the speech of Lycaonia, the gods are come down to us in the likeness of men” (Acts 14:11).
“I have said, ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most high” (Psa.82:6).
“Neither shall they say, lo here! Or, lo there! For, behold, the kingdom of God is within you (Lk.17:21).
You are a semi-god on earth, a carrier of God’s glory and His kingdom. You are a mere man.
