COME UP HIGHER
Main Text: Malachi 4:2“But unto you that fear my name shall the sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.”
Daniel 4:17 “To the intent that the living may know that the most high ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.”
It is very natural for every human being to desire to attain a higher position or to come up higher in level of productivity in every sphere of endeavour. It is sad that not everyone is ready to pay the price needed to attain this higher level, or to come up higher. There is a price to pay to obtain anything good or to come up higher in life.
Our main text in Malachi 4:2 says categorically that “But unto you that fear my name shall the sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings….” There must be fear of the Lord on such an individual, for the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom onto greatness or higher levels in life.
To come up higher in life is by God’s appointment and empowerment, and the pathway to it goes through the fear of God. Anyone who desires to be great must have deep reverence for God. The fear of God automatically confers God’s blessing on His children and causes the sun of righteousness to arise on their behalf, ushering them into supernatural dimensions of accelerated growth or higher levels.
This was the case of Daniel and the three Hebrew young men “Then the king promoted Shedrach, Meshach and Abednego, in the province of Babylon” (Daniel 3:30).
REVERENCE TO GOD IS A SURE WAY TO HAVE A DIVINE PROMOTION
Prayer:Father, please let me live the rest of my life in godly fear in Jesus name. Amen.
