Does God Elevate People?
Yes, God does elevate His people. No one else can elevate us other than Him. We cannot elevate ourselves either.

Live A Victorious Christian Life
Highlighted below are 13 Proven signs that God is elevating you:
1. When You Experience Increased Favor.
It is the favor of the Lord working in us that makes us outshine every other person around us.
When God’s favor is upon us, we receive the grace, strength, and ability to do things that bring us to new levels. God’s favor was upon Joseph, and for this reason, he blossomed in everything that he did.
Genesis 39:2-5 (NIV) says, “The Lord was with Joseph so that he prospered, and he lived in the house of his Egyptian master.
When his master saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord gave him success in everything he did, Joseph found favor in his eyes and became his attendant.
Potiphar put him in charge of his household, and he entrusted to his care everything he owned. From the time he put him in charge of his household and of all that he owned, the Lord blessed the household of the Egyptians because of Joseph.
The blessing of the Lord was on everything Potiphar had, both in the house and in the field.”
When God is elevating you, you will experience increased favor in your life. Doors will open for you, and people will be drawn to you. Any moment you find favor before your boss and colleagues, just know that it is God.
It is a clear indication that God’s favor is working in you to elevate you. Joseph found favor before Potiphar, and he put him in charge of everything that he owned.

Revelation 3:8 (NIV) – “I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut.
I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.”
God opens new doors for us when He wants to elevate us. He creates new opportunities that He knows will help us grow and expand.
Some people got opportunities like scholarships, sponsorships, and other opportunities that were stepping stones to their elevation.
As the scripture in Revelation 3:8 says, no one can block an emerging opportunity that God has brought before you.
He will bring new opportunities your way; whether it is in your career, relationships, or other areas of your life. He will open new doors for you to advance to other levels of growth and development.
