Stretch … look up … go high … go long!
There are good things comin’!
I heard someone preach awhile back about us being sons of the resurrection. Different translations said … sons of the rising again, sons of the rising up. We are the rising up sons of God!
We need to always have our vision … up! Looking, stretching to higher, better, bigger, grander. God is a raising up God. Look at Jesus. He was always going around raising people up … up from the dead, up from sickness, up from drowning. God is always calling for us to “come up”; to come up higher … it’s our call, our destiny!
Each of us are designed for great things. Not one of us is insignificant, of no value, ordinary or unimportant. IMPOSSIBLE! Because we are each a member of the Body of Christ. If I only be a cell in the Body of Christ I am necessary and vital to that Body’s proper functioning. We know there ain’t no cancer cells in Jesus’ body. I’m a necessary, good and beneficial cell.

I’m saying, “My God is a raising up God. I’m lookin’ up! I’ve got my eyes on the goal, the prize, the good things God has prepared for me. He’s with me. He is a mighty power in me and He is raising me up to bigger, better, higher and greater than I can imagine. Thank You Lord. I take this. I’ve got it. Thank You, and I forgive! All in Jesus name.”
