3 John 2 – Dear friend, I hope all is well with you and that you are as healthy in body as you are strong in spirit. (NLT)
The dictionary defines ‘Higher Ground’ as a more elevated platform and position of advantage or superiority. It is a place that offers a greater dimension of honour. That is what God wants for us. As seen in our Bible reading, there are higher and better levels that heaven desires for us to attain.
Several cases in the Scriptures reveals that we can move from our current state to higher ground. For example, in 1 Chronicles 4:9-10, a woman named her child ‘Jabez’ because she bore him in sorrows. However, this child was supposed to be more honourable than his brethren. He was meant to be great, but his foundation hindered his rise to a higher status. Therefore, Jabez realised and cried to God, and his story changed.
Beloved, as we move to the end of 2020, rest assured that there is a better life on the other side. Therefore, are you ready for the ‘higher ground experience’ because it involves efforts. God is set to elevate as many people would trust in Him. Like Jabez, are you set to pray your way through? Can you visualise that spiritual growth and soul-winning, business expansion, marriage and fruitful home, among other things? Think about these things because a faith-driven, prayerful and holier lifestyle is what will trigger our ascension to greater glory in 2021 (Proverbs 23:17-19).
