The Month of April is the Month of Lifting. What does this mean?
“To Lift” means to raise from a lower to a higher position.
Let us look at some scriptures to get more in-depth on what The Lord has to say concerning the month of Lifting.
RIDE UPON HIGH PLACES
(Isaiah 58:13- 14 KJV)
If thou turn away thy foot from the Sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the Sabbath a delight, the holy of the Lord, honorable; and shalt honor him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:
Then shalt thou delight thyself in the Lord; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.
God is about to do something marvelous in your life.
ALWAYS SAY THERE IS A LIFTING UP
(Job 22:29 KJV)
When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up; and he shall save the humble person.
Did you hear that? When others are cast down, don’t say “oh my God I don’t know what is going to happen to me”. Instead start saying, “There is a lifting up”
Job 22: 26-29 Message
“You’ll take delight in God, the Mighty One,
and look to him joyfully, boldly.
You’ll pray to him and he’ll listen;
he’ll help you do what you’ve promised.
You’ll decide what you want and it will happen;
your life will be bathed in light.
29 To those who feel low you’ll say, ‘Chin up! Be brave!’
and God will save them.
Whichever way, there is going to be a lift, it might be a job promotion, a raise of some kind.
By the power of the Holy Ghost; there is lifting up for you. Our God is able. Refuse to fear.
Don’t focus on the challenges, stop seeing you deafened/ wounded/ brought down. It might be like you are before the Red Sea or maybe you made a mistake and found yourself in the position where you are, remember, somebody took responsibility for your sins and errors. Cast your burdens and cares upon The Lord. (Psalm 55:22, 1 Pet 5:7)
The Lord has his mighty hands on you today. This is your set time; it’s your month of Lifting.
Now let’s go ahead and pray…..
