  7. Move up in your purity.  Come before Him and let  Him cleanse you. 
  8. Move up in Job.  Where are you going?  What is your dream?  What is your life?…
  9. Move up in your service to the King.  He calls for you to move on up.  What is your calling from Him?
  10. Move up in your decision as you say yes.  Here I am…
