From Problem to Promotion

  2 Samuel 9 … As for Mephibosheth, said the king, he shall eat at my table, as one of the king's sons.  

Friends, there is a story in 2 Samuel about how the destiny of a lame man was turned around in a single day! That’s right. In one single day, Mephibosheth was elevated from Lodebar to Jerusalem where he began to eat at the king’s table! King David woke up one morning and decided to bless anyone left in the house of Saul (for his servant Jonathan’s sake) and a lame man called Mephibosheth happened to be at the right place at the right time. Friends, this is an example of divine favor. May you be at the right place at the right time in the mighty name of Jesus!

 There’s a saying that one day of favor is better than many years of labor. It does not matter how long you’ve been in that ugly situation. It only takes God one day to turn things around for you. Friends, this is also why it is good to attend church programs. You never know when the angel will stir the water. You never know the day of your visitation. Don’t be weary in doing good because at the appointed time you will be openly rewarded.

 Throughout the bible there are examples of how God moved in the lives of his beloved. Joseph woke up one day a prisoner and slept that same day as the prime minister of Egypt! Ruth was elevated from a poor peasant girl to the wife of a great man (Boaz) in a single day and she became an ancestor of Jesus Christ! Esther was a slave in a strange city and was promoted to the queen!  

The bible says the steps of a good man are ordered by God (Psalm 37:23). I pray in the mighty name of Jesus that your feet would take you to your place of promotion! It is God Almighty that promotes and elevates. God validates his people Himself. He has a way of exalting and introducing the apples of his eyes to the world. Just like the way he said about Jesus: “this is my beloved son, in whom I’m well pleased” (after He was baptized). When God is well pleased with you, he will introduce you to the world and command people to hear you (the way he commanded the world to hear Jesus in Luke 9:35). The bible says when a man’s way pleases God, he makes his enemies to be at peace with him (Prov. 16:7).

 Friends, promotion comes neither from the East nor the West nor the South BUT from God (Psalm 75:6). I pray in the mighty name of Jesus that God will promote you from minimum to maximum! You are going from problem to promotion in Jesus’ mighty name. It is written that eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him (I Cor. 2:9).  

Friends, I pray in the MIGHTY name of Jesus that before this year runs out, you shall be promoted beyond your wildest dreams! You are the head and not the tail; you are above only and not beneath (Deut. 28:13). Whereever you go, you shall be called “Sought out”; you shall be sought out for greatness in Jesus’ name (Isaiah 62:12). You shall walk upon your high places in Jesus’ mighty name (Hab. 3:19). You shall possess your possessions (Oba. 1:17).  God shall increase your greatness and comfort you ON EVERY SIDE (Psalm 71:21). The rest of your years shall be the best of your years in Jesus’ mighty name. Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow you ALL the days of your life in Jesus’ mighty name I pray. I pray in the mighty name of Jesus that from today you shall step out of Lodebar and into Jerusalem where you will begin to eat at the King’s table. Be blessed in Jesus’ mighty name.
