According to Dr Sharib:
Al-Mu'izz is the One Who confers honour upon whomsoever He likes.

Appropriate invocation earns respect and esteem.

Some other references:
Al-Ghazali refers to this along with the Name Al-Mudhill (the Abaser). He
talks of God giving dominion to whomever He pleases - but reminds us
that true dominion is the dominion over the self, the result of which is that

is said that only those who are called can come into the presence of

Lord of Power (and Rule),
Thou givest Power
To whom Thou pleasest,

Thou enduest with honour
Whom Thou pleasest,
And Thou bringest low
Whom Thou pleasest:
In Thy hand is all good,
Verily, over all things
Thou hast power.
