Isaiah 51:12, 13
Psalm 75: 6, 7 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.
Godly wisdom demands that you quickly remove your eyes from your boss in the office on matters concerning your career, promotion and success. He has no power to promote and grant you success. Promotion is the prerogative of God alone.
The promotion of man is a lie, deceit and temptation to sin. Fear God and trust in Him for that long-overdue promotion and watch out for what He will do. Is your boss angry and furious at you and threatening to demote you or terminate your appointment or to sit on your promotion? Never mind!
Your boss has zero power to terminate, to demote or even promote you. The power to do so is in the hands of your God alone. Believe and put your trust in Him concerning your total wellbeing in the office. That promotion that has been a concern to you will be a walkover if you can patiently wait on the Lord to do it for you.
Don't be afraid of man and begin to live in his torment. God has already devised a way to handle the matter. Continuing trust in God gives comfort and hope when promotion is delayed or denied for the righteous. You are living a righteous life, yet adversity is still hovering over you.
You are living right before God, yet accusation, blackmail and condemnation of men are still covering you. Though a righteous man or woman, you are still heavily bombarded with various forms of problems. God's counsel to you is to trust in His capability to handle those catalogues of problem.
In that dark moment of your life; put your trust in your God, not in men. If you put your trust in God, He will remain with you as you pass through that adversity. Those lions will not consume Daniel. Trust God for His intervention in the matter. Righteous Joseph was sent to prison and he remained there trusting God. Testimony followed. Continue to trust God and your testimony will soon come.
Thought for the day:
If you don't trust God, is it Satan you will trust? Trust God!
Song for the day:
It is well with my soul…
Bible reading for the day:
Leviticus 26-27; Mark 2
