L E A D E R S H I P N O T E - P r o m o t i o n God gave Solomon very great wisdom and understanding, and knowledge as vast as the sands of the seashore. In fact, his wisdom exceeded that of all wise men of the East and the wise of Egypt. He was wiser than anyone else ... 1 Kings 4:29-31 and promotion is usually the best way to do that. However, what we do not recognise is the giver of promotion. Who initiates promotion? It is the lack of understanding of this that results into people going to all kinds of lengths to get what they want. Some would resort to lying about their experience in their CV. Some would even go to the extent of giving fraudulent professional qualifications. In business however, the intensity is worse. One would resort to any form or method possible to ensure growth in revenue. God is the inititiator of every promotion … You need to be in a good standing with Him, as well as seek the promotion from Him in order to get the right one. The efforts you make with your superior or your business are the efforts you need to make seeking God and His guidance for your growth and placement. When you use your own efforts, or resort to fraudulent or false information to get it, you are putting yourself at all sorts of risk. You don’t even know if the promotion you are chasing is the right one, or if it is the right time for you to get it. God assesses you and equips you for anything He is to bring into your life. Therefore, whatever promotion He will deem you suitable for, He will first assess and then prepare you for it so that you do not struggle maintaining the position. We see that Daniel’s promotion, even resulted to his fellow Israelites also being promoted. We also see them again in Daniel 3:30 being promoted for refusing to worship the god of Nebuchadnezzar. This happened with even kings in the bible e.g. King Solomon or David, them being placed as kings because of their loyalty to God. Therefore, when you need promotion, be it for self or for your business, put more of your efforts in seeking God’s guidance and direction for it. He will give you just the perfect one 34
