For promotion and power come from nowhere on earth, but only from God. He promotes one and deposes another.
Our anchored Scripture reveals that destinies are fixed by God and not man. That means, the best promotion only come from God alone. Asaph the writer of this Psalm was telling people to stop acts of wickedness in hope of getting to the top. He regarded all the dubious dealings to outwit others as an acts of foolishness, for promotion comes only from God and not because one is well connected. The promotion that comes from God is worth waiting for, never settle for the promotion of men. Man can promote you today and demote you the next day. When man promotes you, they will expect something in return, but when God promotes you, all your sorrows will turn to joy and you will have absolute peace even in the midst of trouble.
God’s promotion will shuts the mouth of your detractors and all those who have vowed that as long as they are on the seat of power you will never see the light of the day. As God did it for Mordecai, He will do the same for you(Esther 6:11). I have good news for you, by this time tomorrow, their promotion will be at your mercy in Jesus’ Name. Never, as a child of God go into any unimaginable lengths and heights in your efforts to get promoted. The story of Absalom should be a learning lesson for all believers; he deviously stole the hearts of his father’s subjects to become king but ended up as a dead man. This confirms that only those who are divinely promoted are actually promoted (2 Samuel 15-18). His diabolical climb to the top tragically led to his untimely death. Any promotion gotten through diabolical means won’t last, and neither does it do any good to its beneficiary. Trying to force the timeline of God could end in destruction and eternal damnation.
Beloved, wait on God to promote you for every good and perfect gift comes from above. When God promotes you, you will go from success to success. Therefore, put your trust in God, and your promotion will manifest sooner rather than later, and it will be beyond your wildest imagination. By the time God starts with you, the whole world will be amazed. Irrespective of how forceful the opposition confronting you is, when God is promoting you, He will cause you to experience certain blessings that will make all your enemies crumble. You will be able to do things you never thought you could do. God will promote you in such a way that will bring glory to His Name. Today, God will reward and promote you and no man, woman or the devil himself can stop it in the Name of Jesus.
O LORD, I wait earnestly for the promotion that is facilitated by You Alone, and let Your presence command blessings into my life in Jesus’ Name.
