Promotion! How?

Promotion: activity that supports or provides active encouragement for the furtherance of a cause, venture, or aim.

Pro Motion.

Got it?

As Christians we probably need to get this stuff down – that is, how we do “promotion” – it’s what separates us from striving in ourselves and going for it in a way that God’s not excited about at all.

You see, people, us, we’re always talking about “seasons” – life’s phases.  Another thing we talk about is “breakthrough” – or increase.  It’s not wrong, we need to be dreaming, hoping, and have vision.  That’s Pro Motion right!

We are all looking for advance in life – moving forward – taking ground – traction – going hard for what’s next.  And we should be – there’s nothing worse than being sedentary and stagnant.

Those without God use all their personal resources, cunning, self-exalting PR efforts to try and wrangle ways to “get ‘er done.”  Sometimes people resort to lies, stomping on others to step up, sleeping their way up, corporate bullying and other dark methodology.  Not nice at all.

Believers?  Well  . . . we’re different, well we should be – scripture lays out how God works, or wants to work with us.

Promotion - new culture

Here are three amazing scriptures – they should re-position how we move forward forever.  We can’t afford to leverage the ugly beast called “the-pride-of-man” from within to break into our next phase of life.  It’s like selling your soul!

  1. Promotion is from God!

    Psalm 75 tells us, in King James language, It’s not from the north south east west. In NIV language it looks like this . . .

 

Psalm 75:6-7  (NIV)

6 No one from the east or the west
or from the desert can exalt themselves.
7 It is God who judges:
He brings one down, he exalts another.

  1. Humility is Key.

No, not that  syrupy self promoting false humility – the real deal.  Before God!

James 4:10 (NIV)

Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.

~

  1. Praise God!

    Praise of our incredible God results in harvest – and not just for us personally – the “earth!”

Psalm 67:5-6  (NKJV)

5 Let the peoples praise You, O God;
Let all the peoples praise You.
6 Then the earth shall yield her increase;
God, our own God, shall bless us.

I am so much more interested in doing things God’s way – it seems that if I create my own pride filled promotions in life, I have to sustain them myself, but if I embark upon life and it’s increases following God’s leading and keeping myself humble Him, He will sustain my life and shifts and harvests!

He’s amazing!
