The Key to Promotion: An Excellent Spirit
For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.Psalms 75:6-7
Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him.
You know, when Jamie and I were called into ministry, I quit my secular job. For the next six years, I pastored three little churches in Texas and Colorado. The first one had a maximum of 12 people in attendance. The second grew to about 50 while we were there. And the third averaged 100 people every Sunday in a town with a population of 144.
If you aren’t being promoted, or if it seems like everyone else is prospering while you struggle to make ends meet, or if you feel like you’ve been passed over, check on the inside. Do you have an excellent spirit? The attitude of your heart could be hindering you from living out God’s best. You need to change that!
“For as [a man] thinketh in his heart, so is he” (brackets added).Change cannot happen externally until it first happens internally. Sometimes change can seem overwhelming, but you’re not alone; we are here to help you.
