MESSAGE: Open Heaven 26 October 2019 Devotional
The topic of today’s devotional is a prophetic word from God to you. God is saying that He is preparing you for an astonishing level of promotion this season. You must therefore be full of praises to Him, because promotion comes from Him alone. Speaking on this, Psalm 75:5-7 says: “Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck. 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.”
As you walk in expectation of your promotion this season, let me give you a few reasons why you should be full of praises to God. The first reason is that God has chosen to speak against your adversaries, who think that without them your promotion will not see the light of the day. Their pride will bring them down, because the Lord is your Lifter.
Let David’s confession in Psalm 3:3 fill your mouth this season, saying: “But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.”
Moreover, you must praise the Lord because He is the accurate Judge and perfect Accessor acting on your behalf. He will nullify all the malicious recommendations that have kept you under for years, because this is your season of promotion.
Do you know that this God, who is our Father in Heaven, specializes in putting the ungodly down and lifting His children up? He did it in the life of Mordecai in Esther 8:1-2, which says: “On that day did the King Ahasuerus give the house of Haman the Jews’ enemy unto Esther the queen.
And Mordecai came before the King; for Esther had told what he was unto her: and the king took off his ring, which he had taken from Haman, and gave it unto Mordecai. And Esther set Mordecai over the house of Haman.”

In addition to this, He caused Mordecai to become the second in command to King Ahasuerus (Esther 10:3). Our Father also did the same thing for Daniel, who was continuously being promoted in the service of several kings, from Nebuchadnezzar the Babylonian to Cyrus the Persian.
At the end of it all, Daniel’s enemies, who lifted up their heels against the Holy One of Israel, were nowhere to be found. They all perished for Daniel’s sake (Daniel 6). Unless your enemies repent, they will become as Daniel’s enemies, and you will be promoted despite their schemes. Those who said your promotion will be over their dead bodies shall receive the desire of their hearts, because you will be promoted whether they like it or not. Hallelujah!
ACTION POINT: Lift up your hands right now and worship the Lord, who is the Lifter of your head and your Promoter.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 2 Chronicles 33-34, Revelation 20:1-10
