We will continue today on the negative concepts of promotion.
3. Thinking that promotion comes through your taking up of responsibilities as a stepping stone to the top.
You must get rid of this wrong concept of promotion and God will find you promotable. God will not promote you simply because you are taking up responsibilities. Your heart may be wrong and you may be doing the right thing.
4.When you think that promotion comes because of academic training or accomplishment.
Many churches today are promoting academic above the anointing and this wrong. It can give you a church that is smart but not sensitive. We need men that have the authentic touch of heaven upon their spirits because they are the ones that can actually introduce you to God. Education should not replace anointing and paper certificate should not replace intercession.
5.Thinking that promotion comes because of sensitivity; I am next in line.
That has destroyed many churches today in the land. In our country, it has destroyed organizations. God is not bound by that. He can choose to lift you above the queue.
6.Thinking promotion comes because of strong inner ambition that drives a person to the top. The difference between a vision and ambition is that vision comes from God and this is the central difference. Who starts you up? Is it God or man?
PRAYER: Lord, I receive divine adjustment of heart, mind and altitude towards my promotion. I repent of every wrong idea and negative strategy and I receive your help in Jesus’ name. Amen.
