How Your Problems May Be Preparation for Your Promotion

by | Aug 27, 2020 | Faith, Spiritual Growth

This episode of Revive the World With Humberto and Leslie Renovato on the Charisma Podcast Network will teach us that God tends to use our struggle as our preparation for what He has prepared next.

Your struggle is simply the announcement. This is why when a word of discouragement comes into your life you must discern that you are in a season of transition. Not in a season of destination. Struggle is only proof that you are still alive. Struggle is the proof that you are still breathing.

The circumstances that you are facing have not taken you out. You may feel like life is suffocating you but your struggle is the announcement that the fight is not over.

“‘No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment, you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their vindication is from Me,’ says the Lord” (Isa. 54:17).

Notice that it says tongue. This is why the “tongue” that rises up against you will not prosper, because the tongue against you is the tongue that will announce your next promotion.

Notice that when Goliath confronts David (1 Sam. 17), the “tongue” does not kill David; it promotes David. David saw the problem and though his faith grew, he knew that the problem was preparation for promotion. God allowed the problem to erupt to position David for promotion.

Joseph (Gen. 37) could have focused on the problem of his brother’s rejection. But his rejection was direction into his promotion—the palace. The rejection, the pain, the depression, the worry, the doubt, can all be your problems, but I write this to remind you that it is only preparation for what God has next.

Jesus knew this principle. He knew someone would reject him. He knew someone would betray Him. But He never let His problem get in the way of His purpose. Jesus knew that the problem was preparation for promotion. The moment Judas presented himself and betrayed Jesus with a kiss, Jesus knew He was only three days away from a Resurrection. The cross was not His problem; it was His purpose. Judas was not His problem; he represented His announcement for promotion.

I tell you today, that whatever you may feel is your problem, your struggle or your enemy, it’s your announcement for promotion. It’s not a problem. It’s preparation. Listen to the full podcast here. {eoa}
