“This day I will begin to exalt] you in the sight of all Israel, that they may know that, as I was with Moses, so I will be with you” (Joshua 3:7).

It is possible for God to elevate and exalt any man. He raises the poor from the dust and set them among princes. Joy, fame and honour come from Him.

At the same time, God says that He will elevate you in front of their eyes so that the people of the world will understand that I am with you, giving you a promise. It is in this way God honored Moses, Joshua and David. He will not only exalt you but will keep you at the top forever. The Scripture says, “On that day the Lord exalted Joshua in the sight of all Israel; and they feared him, as they had feared Moses, all the days of his life” (Joshua 4:14).

Once, when Joshua was in the battlefield, the sun began to set. If darkness engulfed, the Amorites were sure to win. Joshua commanded, “Sun, stand still over Gibeon; and Moon, in the Valley of Aijalon” (Joshua 10:12). Is it not the greatest among all wonders if the sun which goes around in the sky for crores and crores of years as a flame of fire stood still on hearing a command from a man? Yes. God honored the words of Joshua in the presence of all the children of Israel.

God who exalted Joshua will also honor and exalt you. He will keep you with name and fame. All the problems and struggles of today will completely cease. When God wants to exalt you no man can block or stop it. “Both riches and honor come from you, and you reign over all. In your hand is power and might; in your hand, it is to make great and to give strength to all” (I Chronicles 29:12).

At the same time, there is a duty for you to do. Exalt the Name of God and glorify Him. Glorify the Scripture. Explain the miracles of God and share them with others as a witness. That will exalt you. “She will bring you honor, when you embrace her” (Proverbs 4:8).

Meditate from the Scripture with faith, who all glorified God and who all were exalted by God. God exalted and elevated King Hezekiah. Today, God will exalt, elevate and honor you.

To meditate: “And many brought gifts to the Lord at Jerusalem, and presents[a] to Hezekiah king of Judah, so that he was exalted in the sight of all nations thereafter” (II Chronicles 32:123).
