Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up. (James 4:10)
For exaltation comes neither from the east Nor from the west nor from the south. But God is the Judge: He puts down one, And exalts another. (Psalms 75:6-7)
Everyone likes to be promoted. He seems nice to go higher and higher. Principle of earning a promotion according to the world is hard work, make seniors happy or bribe them. We try to promote ourselves but god is our promoter. Genesis tells us of Joseph who advanced from being a slave to governor of Egypt. Joseph grabbed every opportunity and did his best. Joseph did not focus on what he was going through; his focus was where he was going to.
God tests you before He promotes you. Joseph was a man of integrity. Joseph’s temptation by Potiphar’s wife was not an easy situation but he determined to maintain his integrity by not trading his faithfulness before God and his master. God can launch you in one day with one act or with one word of wisdom from above into the promotion He has planned for you.
Promotion comes from God. Joseph tried to promote himself through Pharaoh’s cupbearer, but the cupbearer forgot Joseph. When the time came for God to promote Joseph everything worked perfectly. Man may promote you but the question is, has God promoted you? When God promotes you, no man can demote you. So put your trust in God and keep your focus upon Him.
Confession: Iam born again. I am born to fly. God’s favour is upon me.
