(Experience God’s Lifting And Promotion Daily)
By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
TO THE BIBLE: “For not from the east nor from the west nor from the south come promotion and lifting up. But God is the Judge! He puts down one and lifts up another.” (Psalm 75:6-7 AMPC)
The Lord delights in taking His children from one level to a higher level in every aspect of their lives. He detests unproductivity and retrogression; that’s why He always wants you to excel, progress, and move forward in life. The Bible says, “…The path of the just is like the shining sun, that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day” (Proverbs 4:18). The exciting thing about this promotion from the Lord is that it defies all human logic and awes the natural mind.
As a child of God, understand that God’s grace is upon you and that grace is your power for promotion.You’ve been born into the “forward and upward” life; you ought to keep experiencing supernatural promotions in every area of your life. Do you remember Joseph? Though he was sold into Egypt as a slave, lied against by Potiphar’s wife and eventually imprisoned in Pharaoh’s dungeon, that grace (the power of promotion) working in him moved him from the prison house to being the Prime Minister of Egypt (Genesis 41:39-40).
So you see, every day is an opportunity for you to experience promotion, and the Lord wants you to apprehend that new and higher level that He has prepared for you!
There’s room for you at the top, so go for it! He can even use unfavourable situations, which ordinarily should have led to your disadvantage as the very means for your promotion because you’re His favoured child. Humble yourself; be diligent in all that you do, and by the Spirit of God, you’ll keep experiencing supernatural promotion.
Go Deeper: Psalm 75:6-7; Daniel 2:48
Speak: Dear Father, I thank you for the power of promotion that’s at work in me, which causes me to rise higher and higher every day in every area of my life. I experience only the “upward and forward” movement in my life, heaping success upon success, in the Name of Jesus. Amen.
