WORD FOCUS: PROMOTION COMES FROM THE LORD
TEXT: Psalm 75:6-7 “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….”
Have you ever noticed that people tend to act differently around those they think can do something for them—people who appear to have status, wealth or influence in life? I believe that the way we treat people is a test. At times, God will bring people across your path that may seem insignificant. They may not appear to be able to do anything for you, but in reality, they are divinely linked to your destiny. They hold the key to your promotion and increase. Will you treat them with respect and honor even if you think they can’t do anything for you?
The truth is, the people that we’re playing up to or trying to win their favor may be the ones that will open a door for us, however they don’t hold the key to your destiny. Promotion doesn’t come from them. Promotion comes from God. Surely, God will use the most unlikely people to open doors of opportunity for you — a hotel bellman, a maid, an intern, or an unpopular kid at school. Let’s pass the test and treat everyone like Jesus put them in our path because He probably did. Remember, God is watching and promotion comes from Him.
Father, thank You for your promotion and not my self- effort or connection. Thank You for your constant provision – help, grace and mercy. Help me to honor and respect everyone You bring my way and in turn, honour and wait for Your blessings You in Jesus’ name. Amen.
