The Light Daily Devotional – Promotion Comes from God

WORD FOR TODAY

A man can strive to be whatever he wants to be but real promotion comes from the Lord. You are only promoted when it is God that lifted you!

Scriptural Reference

“Lift not up your [aggressive] horn on high, speak not with a stiff neck and insolent arrogance. For not from the east nor from the west nor from the south come promotion and lifting up.” (Psalms 75:5-6 AMP)

Everybody wants to be promoted but some people don’t mind having it through any means. However, promotion only comes from God.

King Solomon in his observations about the activities under the sun discovered that: The race is not to the swift, Nor the battle to the strong, Nor bread to the wise, Nor riches to men of understanding, Nor favor to men of skill; But time and chance happen to them all.” (Ecclesiastes 9:11).

An increment in your income or level of operation doesn’t signify promotion. When God lifts a man, it doesn’t come by his effort, doing or expertise.

Therefore, no matter what you do and know how to do best; God is the ultimate factor that determines promotion. In your pursuit in life, try as much as possible not to sideline God: don’t be wise in your own eyes but acknowledge Him in all your ways.

+ Will you wait on God to promote you?

Prayer: Lord! Be the Glory and the lifter of my head in Jesus name. Amen!!! 

Emphasis: You are only promoted if and only if God lifted you!

Have a Graceful week ahead
