GOD CAN PROMOTE ANYONE
He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lefteth the needy out of the dung hill. That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of the people. – Psalm 113:7-8 (KJV)
Psalm 75:5-7 (NIV)
5 Do not lift your horns against heaven;
do not speak so defiantly.’”
6 No one from the east or the west
or from the desert can exalt themselves.
7 It is God who judges:
He brings one down, he exalts another.
Open Heaven 1 May 2023 Message
Our Bible reading says clearly that God is the One who promotes. God alone is the One who promotes – no other person can, not even the so-called godfathers.
Striving for positions and receiving titles do not amount to being promoted. Saul still had the title ‘king’ for several years after God had already rejected him and anointed David in his place.
This was why he was helpless before Goliath while David who had been anointed to take his place defeated the giant. When you read 1 Samuel 18:7, you see from the song of the women and children that they had a higher regard for David than Saul even though Saul was still considered the king.
Now that it is clear that God is the one who promotes, the next question is: Who are the people that God usually chooses for promotion? 1 Samuel 2:7-8 says: The Lord maketh poor, and maketh rich: he bringeth low, and lifteth up. He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the Lord’s, and he hath set the world upon them.
God can pick up a beggar from the dunghill and begin to promote him until he starts dining with kings. God can promote anyone and my prayer for you today is that your promotion will come rapidly, in Jesus’ name. No one is out of reach for divine promotion.
No matter how low you are now, God can still promote you to a place so high that it would beat the imagination of the whole world when they hear your story. If you want God to promote you, you must be one person that He is sure will do His will when you get promoted.
And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave their testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.
Acts 13:22 Can God count on you to fulfil His will after He has promoted you? If your answer is ‘yes’ then get ready for a divinely arranged promotion.
