Come Up Higher
By Aduke Obey | February Sun 27, 2011

To fulfill our divine assignments, we need vision. No destiny can be fulfilled without a sense of purpose, the compass that navigates us to the future. Your vision is what equips you with the specific divine tools that will enable you to accomplish your set goals and objectives.

Your life can veer off-course from the place of purpose unless you ask God to reveal the particular direction (vision) you need from the Lord to stay on course and reach the finishing line of your divine assignment.

The vision is for an appointed time (Hab. 2:2). We can have different visions for the different seasons and areas of our lives in accordance with God's time-table for our lives. If it is a God-given vision, it will always attract divine resources. This is so because where there is a vision there will be a provision.

You might sense a pull of destiny on your life but do not fully understand what you're to do. You are to seek God's face for direction and timing. Moses sensed the pull of destiny on his life and attempted to accomplish it prematurely before receiving directions from God; this proved disastrous and led him into a forty year exile. Over the years in Midian he had learnt a lot and had matured. While tending the flock of his father in-law as he turned aside at the sight of the burning bush God revealed his vision to him (Exo. 3:4).

Moses was able to step into his future because he was ready to carry the weight of destiny. he knew enough to turn-aside. Are you ready for what God has for you? All men and women of purpose are people with defined purpose and visions for their lives. You cannot fulfill your purpose without a vision. Vision is the ability to see into the future with the eyes of God. Abraham couldn't step into his future until God showed him the stars of his destiny (Gen. 13:14-15). Ask the Lord to show you the mental picture of your future today (Jer. 33:3). You cannot go in until you see it.

God cannot and will not show your future until you are ready to “come up higher” (Rev. 4:1-2). John had to come up higher before he could receive the revelation. To “come up hither” is to be willing to make necessary changes in your life in order to accommodate God's blue print and success plans for your life. Come up higher from the place of self focus, unbelief, valley of iniquity and disobedience, to the mountain top, for upon Mount Zion, there shall be deliverance and the house of Jacob shall possess its possession. Change cannot come when you are stuck in the same old rut, doing the same old thing. Abraham had to let go of Lot, Moses had to turn aside, Esther had to be willing to be selfless, what do you sense God asking you to do?

Come up higher in your Bible study habit, prayer life and relationship with the lord. Come up higher in your stewardship, marriage and family life or integrity.

Your life is not an accident or a mistake; it is for a purpose because you were created for a purpose. Allow God to take you to your destiny. You must not die until you answer the call of destiny and purpose.
