Divine promotion is what is meant by peculiar promotion. It is clear that God is interested in your promotion. However, the reason God’s people don’t experience divine promotion is that they don’t find out how God promotes. Thus, they subject themselves to the natural way without taking advantage of the divine side.
There are two kinds of promotion:
1. True Promotion
2. False Promotion
True promotion follows a process, whether obvious or hidden. False promotion on the other hand, does not follow any process. False promotion leads a man away from wisdom into the way of folly. Every false promotion leads to chaos.
One of the divine helps for someone experiencing false promotion is for God to allow a divinely permitted failure, so that the person can come back with baby-like humility to embrace the process of true promotion.
When you are dealing with divine promotion, there are two directions: Upward and Forward. When God is in your life, this should be your experience. How you will know that you are missing God is that your life is will not be going upward and forward. Upward is what preserves forward. Upward means you are kingdom relevant; it deals with spiritual values and invisible things that money cannot buy in your life. Forward depicts the earthly part of your life. A man can buy his way to achieve forward movement but it doesn’t last. The glory cloud always moves upward and forward, never going back.
If you see yourself going back to your past life either physically or in your dreams, it is either the devil is attacking you or God wants you to take care of something in your life. It is the upward movement that stabilizes the forward movement. Going forward is the divine justification for the upward movement. The forward movement is what is visible to the enemy.
Prayer: Lord, I receive the anointing for upward and forward movement upon my life in Jesus name. I receive grace to activate the divine promotion in my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.
