The Lord is very clear about where we are to seek promotion. Promotion comes through the hand of God. We know this because (Psalms 75:6-7KJV) says “For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.” Thus, we may be depending upon man to promote us, but who we need to depend upon is God: For those who we thought had the ability to give us a promotion in today’s economy, are finding themselves without a job. Hence let me encourage you to trust God for your elevation; trust God for your advancement. We have been looking in the wrong spaces and wrong places for elevation, and God desires for us to come and seek him and He will give us this promotion in His time. What we need to be doing in the mean time and in between time is preparing ourselves for such advancement. If that means going back to school then do that; if that means more time in his word and on your face then do that. If that means we have to become better at our craft then we need to figure out what we need to do in order to become better. Ask God the difficult questions, do your own personal research on what it takes to become better at what you do. In fact, God may even want to move you in a different direction so you want to be sure that you are sensitive to what He is speaking. We can’t just sit around and expect promotion to fall in our laps because even James said “faith if it have not works is dead being alone”.
God Bless You
