Promotion comes from God
Scriptural Reference: “Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck. For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But God is the judge: he putteth down one and setteth up another” – Psalm 75: 5-7
True promotion comes from God. God is in charge of the pure and lasting promotion here. God is the Judge and He determines the placement of individuals. If He does not promote you, and you get into manipulating a man to promote you, you will eventually be demoted. But if He promotes you and man tries to demote, be assured that whatever God has ordained will last. Promotion comes from God, for He is the principal determining factor. That means until this judge decides as it were, your new level is not yet guaranteed.
Wisdom demands that we focus on whatever things make us enjoy favour with the Judge. Enjoying continuous favor with God (the Judge) enhances our chances of divine promotion. Some individuals lost favor before God and experienced total demotion. A vivid example is prophet Eli and his children. This was a lineage that God had honoured and promised priesthood and leadership in Israel, but they took God for granted and dishonoured God. This dishonour led to disfavour before God, and the family came under a curse.
When you learn to honour God in all your dealings, you will have favour with Him, and your promotion will know no bounds. Honour begets honour. When God honours a man, he experiences uncommon favour.
Daily digest: Read 1 Samuel 2: 22-36
Prayer: I decree and declare, the time of my favour is now in the name of Jesus.
