He sat down, called the twelve disciples over to him, and said, “Whoever wants to be first must take last place and be the servant of everyone else.” Mk 9:35. God’s promotion is linked to serving others. Promotion is not about glory, status or pride and certainly these selfish ambitions will hold you back from God’s best. But when your desire is to serve others through making a difference with a heart of humility, promotion will become a natural progression. When you are always faithful, dependable, ready to help and use initiative, people will see that you have key leadership characteristics. Being courageous for the greater good of others and not being afraid to step out or speak up for what you know is right will also display your strength for leadership. Praise God today that as we serve Him and others faithfully, promotion will follow. As we keep our heart right and eyes on Him, He will make a way.
