Exalted To Greater Heights

David did everything according to God’s will and became a man after God’s own heart (Acts 13:22). He did not forsake any command of God and did all things that were pleasing in His sight. That’s precisely the reason the Lord was pleased with him. Though he was only a shepherd, the Lord raised him to become a king and also strengthened him with His might. David was exalted, and his life is an example to all of us.

Peter, a young man, was serving as an ordinary worker in an office. He knew about the Lord through his grandmother from his childhood days and walked in ways that were pleasing to the Lord. In his office too, he was obedient to his superiors and learnt to do his work with enthusiasm. Over time, whenever a clerk went on leave, he efficiently completed all of his work and astonished the clerk when he came for duty the following day. The reason for his success was waiting at the feet of the Lord every day before he went for work as his grandmother had taught him. Therefore, the Lord blessed him with wisdom and strength. Slowly, he passed his departmental examinations and received promotions, too. He did not forget his humble beginnings and continued to help everyone, and the Lord was pleased with him. He raised Peter from his lowly state, exalted him and honoured him just like David.

Do not strive to receive blessings through ungodly ways or shortcuts. You should strive like that young man and like David, the servant of God, and gain the strength and goodness that comes from the Lord. When you follow God’s statutes, He will bless you with all the good things in life. Although you may go through hardships, the Lord will be with you in your storms and will not drown you with problems. He will deliver you and exalt you to greater heights. So, trust the Lord and be faithful in the work you have been assigned with. God who watches you will reward you for your work.
Almighty God! How great is Your goodness that You have kept for those who seek You and trust You with zeal. Likewise, let me also walk in the ways of David and receive all the blessings he received. O Father give me Your grace to follow this and be uplifted in life. 

In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
