You’re Going Up

24th March 2019

Scripture Reading: 1 Samuel 1: 1-28


“And this man went up out of his city yearly to worship and to sacrifice unto the LORD of hosts in Shiloh. And the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, the priests of the LORD, were there.” (1 Samuel 1: 3)

Our Focal Scripture speaks of how Elkanah went up from his city yearly to offer sacrifices in Shiloh. The movement to Shiloh was an ‘up’ movement. So for every time Elkanah left his location, it was for an upward movement. Whenever there was a change of location for Elkanah, it was an upward movement. As he moved out of his city, it was an upward movement. As he left the place where everyone knew him, it was for upward movement.

Friend, hear God’s prophetic word: your movement in life shall be upward. As you step out of where you are currently, it shall be for an upward movement; as you leave your current job, it shall be for an upward movement; as you leave your current address, it shall be an upward movement; as you leave what you currently do for a living, it shall be for an upward movement; your movement shall be forever upward.

Get set for a new season of upward movements that shall bring you joyful sounds of celebration. Your finances will move upwards; your family members will move upwards; your opportunities will move upwards; your results will move upwards; your impact will move upwards; your influence and relevance will move upwards; your resources will move upwards; your favour will move upwards; God’s hand on you shall be upwards.

Something bigger and better is coming your way; something greater than you have ever experienced is coming your way; you’re going up; your new season is here; your movement to your next level is imminent. As you leave where you are currently, it shall be for a higher level; if you have to leave any opportunity, it shall be for higher opportunities; as you lose any grounds, it shall be for higher grounds that will make you celebrate.

You will not have a better yesterday; your path will shine brighter and brighter; you will not be counted among those whose best days are in the past. Your movement shall not be backward; it shall be upward.


My movement shall be forever upward; no going down, in Jesus’ name!
