Psalm 75:4-7

4 I said unto the fools , Deal not foolishly : and to the wicked, Lift not up the horn:  5 Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck. 6 For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. × References for Psalms 75:6

5 and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed a us from our sins in His own blood,

When the purpose of a thing is not known abuse is inevitable. Ignorance is a robber therefore right knowledge is required to get prevent ignorance related losses. Many people have been fed with the knowledge that they are not good enough and they deserve punishment for all their sins. As a result of this they have developed a dread of God that cripples them from approaching or receiving from God. But this mindset is far from the truth. God is not out to get you or make you pay for your sins, he has already made Jesus pay for all our sins and you are cleared of all your offenses. All you have to now do is receive forgiveness and new life that Jesus has provided for you everybody else. God is not going to save us he has already saved us. The problem is majority are yet to lay know and claim on it and consequently they are missing out on God’s best for them. Friend, when you receive Jesus, you received a status change as well. You are promoted from sinner to saint. You are promoted from damnation to salvation. You are translated form hell to heaven, from curse to blessing and from poverty to prosperity. In addition to your human life you now have eternal life, the God kind of life.

You may ask why will God do all these for me and promote me?  God has chosen to promote you because of his love and mercy for you. The scripture reading in Ephesians 2 above outlines it well,

4 But because of his great love for us,8 God, who is rich in mercy,

The love God has for us is not based on our performances (previous or future), it is based on His mercy and love. Therefore our promotion is not natural, it is supernatural. It is by the violent work of grace of God that we are saved. We need to free ourselves from the mentality that we have to work hard for to deserve God blessings. Say with me, God has promoted me based on His unconditional love and mercy for me in Christ.

The promotion we have in Christ is not temporary it is permanent. Furthermore, it is limitless, this is confirmed in Proverbs 4:13, which declares that the part of the just is like a shining light that shines more and more unto the perfect day. The perfect day is the day that Jesus comes to take us home to be with him I heaven. So until them we are supposed to enjoy continuous promotion.

Positionally, we have been promoted to the highest place, ‘seated with Christ’. We however need to believe and receive our spiritual status to manifest in the physical realm to complete our cycle of promotion. Potentially we already promoted to the highest place but practically we need to take steps manifest it. From scriptures, there are 3 heavens and they are all located above the earth. We have the atmospheric heaven, the atmosphere surrounding the earth, which is the first heaven, the starry heaven, the stars and planets which is the second heaven, the planet, heaven, this is where the throne of God is located, which is the third heaven otherwise known as the heaven of heavens. While we live physically on earth, our authority comes from the throne of God, the third heaven. We have dual citizenship. We are both citizens of heaven and earth; however our heavenly status supersedes our earthly status. The devil is the god of this world system so his authority does not go beyond the earth and the atmospheric heaven which is the first heaven located immediately above the earth. However, in Christ we are seated in the third heaven in a superior place far above the authority of the devil and his systems. Therefore, you should not permit him to rule over you, you should use your authority to stop his activity around you.

To manifest our supernatural promotion, we need the following to be in place,

  • Knowledge of our status in Christ
  • Faith in our status change in Christ
  • Meditate on our new status in Christ until it become our default mindset
  • Declare your new status
  • Pray and relate to life situation from your new spiritual position and not from a physical stand point.
  • Avoid pride

For Further Study

Ephesians 2

Questions for you to reflect on
  • Compare your spiritual position to your physical position, what is the difference?
  • How do you intend to bridge the gap?

Personal Declaration

This is my year of supernatural promotion therefore, I will be elevated, and I will make advancement through divine intervention and agency. I will experience positive meteoric rise in my spiritual, material, mental, relational, financial, academic, life in Jesus mighty name. I will rise far above the natural limitations and I will become more God led than ever before and I will get God quality result.

REMEMBER: YOU ARE NOT A BIOLOGICAL ACCIDENT YOU ARE A CREATURE OF DESTINY SO KEEP ON, KEEPING ON
