PROMOTION IS FROM GOD (3)

If we truly desire promotion, we must cultivate the heart of a servant. Jesus Himself said, Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant (Matthew 20:26). Promotion in God's kingdom is not about self-glorification but about humbly serving others. It is about using the positions and opportunities God gives us to make a positive impact on the lives of those around us. Promotion from God often requires a heart of humility (Matthew 23:12). While promotion ultimately comes from God, some qualities and attitudes align with His character and attract His favour. These are some of the qualities: A. Faithfulness and Diligence: God rewards those who remain faithful and diligent in their tasks, responsibilities, and assignments (Matthew 25:14-30). B. Humility and Dependence on God: Humility is a virtue that God deeply values. When we humble ourselves before God, acknowledging our dependence on Him, He lifts us in due time (1 Peter 5:6). C. Integrity and Righteousness: Living a life of integrity and righteousness is pleasing to God. When we walk in integrity, honouring our commitments and displaying moral uprightness, we invite God's promotion into our lives. D. Responding to God's Promotion: When God blesses us with promotion, it is essential to respond with gratitude and humility, all good gifts are from God. As we experience promotion, there is a danger of becoming proud or self-reliant. However, we must remember to stay connected to the source of our promotion, which is God Himself. Continued dependence on Him through prayer, Bible study, and fellowship ensures that we remain grounded and continue to grow in God. Let us remember that promotion is from God. It is not something we can achieve solely through our efforts or by manipulating circumstances. Instead, it is a divine gift that comes from the sovereign hand of our Heavenly Father. Our responsibility is to trust in His timing, submit to His will, and faithfully serve Him and others, wherever we may be.
