No man can uplift you except God sends him to uplift you and no man can help you except God tells him to help you.
Sometimes, we rely on mere men and expect them to do only what God can do.
While some unemployed graduates have formed the habit of taking their Cirriculum Vitae(CV) to whoever is in the position of authority/power.
Some people also run after politicians as if their whole life
depends on those politicians.
These politicians would use them, dump them and leave them bartered.
Are you not tired of running after people for help? Have you been calling people on the phone without calling the one who created you at all?
I have a word for you “YOUR PROMOTION IS NOT IN THE HANDS OF ANY MAN.” How did I know that?
Let’s read it from God’s Word.
“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.” – Psalm 75:6-7.
You will suffer a lot and will only be an ordinary instrument for the rich if you do not get this truth ingrained in your brain. You will find the rich disappointing you countless times if you do not know the one who has genuine promotion in His hands. You do not seek people, you seek God. If you seek people, people will not seek you for help but if you seek God, God will make people seek you for help. It is only those who understand this truth that will lead their generation and not live their whole life in servitude.
God says, promotion is not from the west, east or south. Maybe you think you have been seeking financial help from the people of the South that if you try to seek help from the people of the east or west, they will definitely help you. God’s Word says none of them has your promotion in his hand. So, who is that promoter? The promoter that is above every other earthly promoter is God. He specializes in promoting only those who seek him, find him and know him.
Stop running helter-skelter looking for help where it cannot be found. Though, God cannot come down to help us but it is God who stirs the hearts of men to help people. If he does not stir them to help you, they will not help you at all. Read this;
“Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it also in writing, saying. Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, The Lord God of heaven hath given me all the kingdoms of the earth; and he hath charged me to build him an house at Jerusalem, which is in Judah.” – Ezra 1:1-2.
God stirred the heart of Cyrus, the king of Persia to build Him a temple. Cyrus would not have thought of buying a land for the Lord let alone building a house for the Lord, if he was not stirred by God. It was God who put it in his heart to help the people of Judah. Our prayer therefore should be; “Lord stir the hearts of men to help me.” You don’t just go and see your helpers and start ranting and explaining how important their help is. Firstly, You have to speak to God and allow Him to lead you to where your help is.
David did not solicit the help of anyone before God told Samuel to go and anoint him to be the King of Isreal. Mordecai did not go about begging Haman for help, yet God intervened in his matter. The remnants at Babylon did not go about begging King of Persia, Cyrus, for help to build the temple but it was God who stirred his heart to build His temple. You don’t need human connection for you to be promoted, you only need divine connection and you’ll be promoted.
Stop running after those who cannot help you. Sit down and speak to God about your need. He is the one who knows the need of everyone and he will surely provide because Philippians 4:19 says and my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. He will provide for those who ask from Him. If you ask Him, He will promote you in His time which is the right time. Though, it may seems slow but be patient.
It is only the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. If you do not know Him, you can’t be strong and do mighty things. You can’t leave a mark worth remembering on earth if you do not know the Lord of Lords. If you know Him, you will be able to speak with him concerning your needs.
I say again, your promotion is not in the hands of anyone but in the hands of God. You cannot find help, no matter how hard you try to look for help and find it by neglecting the Lord. God is the source of great things, source of connection to great people but whenever you begin to see the hands of men and not acknowledge the intervention of God, the source may dry up. So, avoid it. Seek the source, not an ordinary person.
