As I was praying about a word of encouragement for you, this is the word I got: "elevation." And I'm going to pray into that. For the Lord says that some of you feel like you are stuck. Or you are feeling like, "Where is God in my life right now?"
And the Lord says, "This is a time of increase when I will elevate you." Maybe you feel like you're beyond your time, or maybe you just feel like you're always trying but you never get there. Well, the Lord says, "I am going to do some surprising things for you. And you can count on this. I am going to open surprising doors. I want to elevate you. I want to multiply and increase you."
Some of you have had some loss, great financial loss, or emotional loss or maybe you're aggrieved at things happening in your family. But the Lord says, "I am going to begin to give you wisdom on how to pull yourself up out of the emotional kind of trauma you're in." You're going to come out of it emotionally, and as you come out of this emotionally, the Holy Spirit Himself is going to start giving you downloads and things you could do.
The Lord says, "Come away with Me, My beloved. Come away and ask Me how to elevate yourself. I desire to take you to the places of your dreams." And some of you stopped dreaming. You just thought, "Well, what, I'm 65, you know, 70, 80. I just don't dream anymore." The Lord says, "I never retire. I have never retired, and I want you to be like Me."
So, Father, I thank You, Lord, for this new day of elevation. I thank You, Lord, for even the children going back to school. This word is especially for the children right now—as you're getting ready to go back to school, believe that God is going to use you in really dramatic ways. The Holy Spirit is going to go to school with you and be right there along with you.
Don't be discouraged. Don't be upset. The elevation has already begun. "Cooperate with Me," says the Lord, "and I will take you to the level of your dreams."
