In our society we have all seen malicious acts or ill will done toward others in an effort to get a promotion or be seen by upper management. Even in relationships one may try to impress another for the title of ‘husband’ or ‘wife’.
The bible is clear that promotion does not come from man but God. God places us all through a process of maturing which in turn typically places us in an area to be promoted. Whether the promotion is in form of a relationship, business or personal opportunities, God will grant you wisdom and favor with others.
There is no need to run over others or do anything extravagant to impress people. He will give you knowledge and wisdom for what you need and when you need it. You just have to submit to His will and plan and discern Holy Spirit inspired shifts.
A few scriptures to ponder on:
“For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. It is God who judges: He brings one down, He exalts another.”
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
You don't have to jump into any other race except yours. Walk confidently in your God given purpose and He will exalt you at the perfect time.
