God Gives Promotions 05-26-19

Good day to you and praise the Lord for another day and another chance to further the body of Christ. How will you us this day?

Today’s Prayer  

    Father, as You have instructed through Your Word, We want to “above all things have fervent love for others, for ‘love will cover a multitude of sins.’ We want to be hospitable to others without grumbling. As we have received a gift from You, help us to minister it to others, as good stewards of Your manifold grace. When we speak, let us speak Your Word out of love and kindness. When we minister, let us do it as with the ability which You supply, that in all things, You may be glorified through JESUS Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.”

Let’s eat.

Elevated From the Pasture

Now then, tell my servant David, “This is what the Lord Almighty says: I took you from the pasture and from following the flock to be ruler over My people Israel.” – 2 Samuel 7:8

    Have you ever heard someone say, “He is a self-made millionaire”? They are stating that this person accomplished everything through his own efforts. His achievements were a result of his hard work and street smarts.

    David was nearing the end of his life. The prophet Nathan was responding to David’s idea to build a temple where the Ark of the Covenant would stay. GOD reminded David of his roots and where He had brought him. GOD took David from the fields of pasturing sheep to pastoring a nation. GOD reminded David that He cut off all of David’s enemies. (David never lost a battle.)

    Have you ever felt tempted to look at your accomplishments with pride as if you were the reason for your success? Have you ever thought your prosperity was due to your ingenuity? Has your material success been a testimony to others that GOD is the ruler of all aspects of your life, even the material side?

      Joseph’s greatest test was not his temptation to be bitter against his brothers. It wasn’t the sexual temptation that came inside Potiphar’s house. It wasn’t even the discouragement of years of imprisonment for being wrongfully accused. It was the temptation of prosperity and ownership. Once he was elevated, he was given choices that he never had before. It was totally up to him as to which choice he would make. Stewardship reveals what we believe about GOD and ourselves.

Do you have a proper understanding of who you are? Do you understand that it is GOD who has given you the ability to work and achieve? He is the source of all good things. Ask GOD today if your life models this belief.


Not every man can carry a full cup. Sudden elevation frequently leads to pride and a fall. The most exacting test of all to survive is prosperity. -Oswald Chambers
