Morning Watch: God says, "Get ready for a promotion!"

On this first day of September, the Lord is preparing you for elevation or promotion in the spirit.

Nine represents the birthing of something new and September is the ninth month.

The Lord says, “Get ready for a promotion!”

The Lord is very serious about you being in the right position and place for your promotion. There must be room for you to grow into what the Lord has for you.

Just like the womb must expand for a growing baby and rooms and living spaces get larger as you grow, God wants to release you from places where you’ve been constricted and you’ve been convinced you had to stay in order to advance in God’s Kingdom.

You don’t have to stay where there is a "rat race" for promotion. No more chasing your tail and wearing yourself out for people. God is coming to promote you Himself. But for some of us that means a change of scenery

Now is the time to embrace the idea the Lord might be moving you.

This could mean a new job or a change in relationships or churches.

Psalms 75:4-7 (NKJV)

4 “I said to the boastful, ‘Do not deal boastfully,’ And to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up the horn.

5 Do not lift up your horn on high; Do [not] speak with a stiff neck.’ ”

6 For exaltation [comes] neither from the east Nor from the west nor from the south.

7 But God [is] the Judge: He puts down one, And exalts another.

The Lord is bringing healing to those who have sat under leaders who have been boastful about their role in your promotion.

Promotion comes from the Lord not man.

The Lord says,

“I am opening doors for the faithful who have not sought their own way. 

I’m opening doors of escape and doors of promotion

Submit your heart to me, not man.“

The Lord is saying to me there are many of you who have felt like you have been trapped.

You’ve sought to serve God but there’s been abuse or pride. Self-centered ministry leaders who have convinced you your promotion comes from them.

The Lord says, “I release you today. Come into my promotion. Come into my promises that do not depend on your performance but your humility.”

God is promoting the truly humble.

And make no mistake, He is setting you free from restrictive leaders. We have to be careful that we’re not walking in criticism.

But if you’re truly seeking God and to serve Him and you’ve been under leaders who have had you under their thumb,

The Lord says,

“It’s time for you to walk in my light without the shade. I will promote you, not them.”

The Lord shared with me that so many have new waiting on people to promote them and that’s why they have sat under leaders and teachers who have been abusive or mistreated them.

And the Lord reminded me, He did not allow Moses into the promised land because he wanted to misuse the rod of God for his own glory.

Numbers 20:7-12 (NKJV)

7 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,

8 “Take the rod; you and your brother Aaron gather the congregation together. Speak to the rock before their eyes, and it will yield its water; thus you shall bring water for them out of the rock, and give drink to the congregation and their animals.”

9 So Moses took the rod from before the LORD as He commanded him.

10 And Moses and Aaron gathered the assembly together before the rock; and he said to them, “Hear now, you rebels! Must we bring water for you out of this rock?”

11 Then Moses lifted his hand and struck the rock twice with his rod; and water came out abundantly, and the congregation and their animals drank.

12 Then the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron, “Because you did not believe Me, to hallow Me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly into the land which I have given them.”

Your entrance into your promises are not dependent on you, they depend wholly on God.

You can pray this prayer:

“Lord show me your heart and your glory. Cause my heart to follow yours. If I am submitting to leadership that is harmful for my growth, please show me. I want to follow you, not men.”

The Lord is saying for some, your promotion is your escape. Letting go of dead works and dead places will bring you into new life in ministry and other areas.

Be open to the Lord showing you where His heart and your leader’s heart don’t align. And allow the Lord to rescue you from the rat race. No more chasing your tail in hopes of a promotion.

“Seek me,” says the Lord. 

“I am not a harsh taskmaster.”


In Him alone,
