      The way that God promotes someone is a lot different than the way we would. Our way to get promoted would be to work very hard, learn the way the system goes, and then use that same system to get further ahead. Our way may rely on contacts, favors and even "who you know." Our way may be based on rubbing elbows with someone, or could even be credited to something called "luck."  

      We would also promote someone else based on these same factors. Either way, we will work very hard for promotion, and after we get it or give it, we like to take the credit for all that has been done!

       Let's look at God's way of promoting. He delights in exalting the humble person. "For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted." (Luke 14:11). Someone who is humble is not proud, and they don't mind "going down to get up." They know that someday, for reasons that are only known to God, they are going to be invited to move on up a little higher!

       When it's all said and done, with an act of our will, we need to step down from our own agendas for our lives. Then as we pray and spend more time with the Lord, we begin to pick up small everyday insights into God's great big plans of success for our lives. As we continue to walk in obedience and faith, and stick to HIS agenda, our promotions to success that God has for us will happen!

       PRAYER: Lord God, if you find any trace of pride or self-promotion in our hearts, we ask that you take it away, and then give us the attitude and heart of a humble servant. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.

      Scripture Of the Day: "For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted." - Luke 14:11 (NKJV)
