Elevate: raise or lift something up to a higher position; increase the level or amount of something
God is calling us to increase. He’s calling us to elevate ourselves to a higher plane of living by spending more time in the Word, increasing our prayer time, and moving forward.
So many of us have passed our days by in a manner that’s less than deserving of our God. We allow laziness to distract us. We allow business to consume us, and we find ourselves saying, “I just don’t have time to read the Bible today. I just don’t have enough time in the day to pray. I don’t even know where my day went! I completely forgot to pray today.”
We allow ourselves to be consumed with this world, and we alienate the One who created it.
Guys, this a call to action: it’s time to elevate.
Stop waiting on the perfect service. Stop waiting on the perfect preacher, the perfect song, or the perfect moment. Create your moment now. You have the power inside of you to pray over yourself, to stir yourself up, and to kick yourself into motion.
Begin increasing the time you spend with the Lord. Start acting more like Jesus and working on being a good steward of the word.
Elevate yourself today. Don’t wait. It’s time to act now. Will you answer?
