He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the LORD’S, and he hath set the world upon them (1 Samuel 2:8).
There’s no disadvantage for the child of God. Believe it. It makes no difference how you were born, who your parents are, your environment, or historical background; being born again, your life is ordained by God to go only in the direction of success. You may have been born into an extremely poor family; it doesn’t mean anything! You’re the seed of Abraham. Therefore, your wealth has nothing to do
with your biological parents or family tree.
There’s no rule or law that states that those that were born in the palace will do better in life than those born in a derelict hamlet in some poor countryside. Actually, the worse the circumstances of your birth, the greater the potentials of your testimony! So, never have a reason to be ashamed of the circumstances of your birth, family background, or of where you live. Rather, make up your mind you’re going to be very successful, and be the answer to the cry of others. Be the one to change the status quo.
If you’re a young person from a poor home, don’t be ashamed of your parents or the home from where you came! Stay there, and walk your way upwards! Just because your neighbour’s house is finer than yours, doesn’t mean you should covet their homes such that when you’re asked, “Where’s your house?” You point to your neighbour’s instead of your parents’ house. Be glad about where you’re from.
Thank God for it! That’s where God located you; it’s part of your glory.
Remember, God is the One who raises the poor out of the dust, and lifts up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory. Trust Him to make your life glorious. Trust Him to empower you to be a blesser and lifter of others. There’s no limitation for you, if you’d only trust the Lord with your life.
Blessed Lord, I’m so grateful to you, for your loving-kindness! You’ve set my feet upon a rock, making my footsteps firm. Before I was born, you knew me, and predestined me for the life of greatness. By your Word, and by your Spirit, I’m making progress with giant strides, bearing fruits unto righteousness, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Who is like unto the Lord our God, who dwelleth on high, Who humbleth himself to behold
the things that are in heaven, and in the earth! He raiseth up the poor out of the dust,
and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill; That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people.He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the Lord.
To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. I waited patiently for the Lord; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay,
and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord. Blessed is that man that maketh the Lord his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
