Promotion Comes From God

Promotion Comes From God

Bible Reading: Genesis 31: 7-10

Memory verse: Psalm 75:6-7, “v.6 For exaltation comes neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. V.7 But God is the judge: he puts down one, and exalts another.

Genesis 31:7 “yet your father has cheated me by changing my wages ten times. However, God has not allowed him to harm me. 8 If he said, ‘The speckled ones will be your wages,’ then all the flocks gave birth to speckled young; and if he said, ‘The streaked ones will be your wages,’ then all the flocks bore streaked young.”

Many times we blame our lack of success on people or our circumstances, but that should not be the case. Learning from Jacob, he had the worst boss you can imagine, yet he went from nothing to abundance. Three things he was aware of:

1. He was the carrier of the blessing, not looking for blessings.
2. Little is much when God is in it.
3. Listening and receiving directions from God was the key to success.
His success didn’t just happen. It didn’t also come by prayer and fasting as we know it. He knew who he was, listened to God, worked the blessing and came out with abundance. When you know that promotion does not come from east or west but from God, we will not be perturbed by a boss who doesn’t like us. We will live in the security of God’s favor. Enough of our excuses, nothing can stop you but yourself if God is for you. In this new month, go for it because God who is your father is for you not against you.
