Open Heavens 7 January 2018: Sunday daily devotional by Pastor E. A. Adeboye – Redeemed for divine promotion

REDEEMED FOR DIVINE PROMOTION – Sunday January 7th 2018
Memorise: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: Colossians 1:13
Read: Psalm 75:5-7 (KJV)
75:5 Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck.

75:6 For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.

75:7 But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.

Bible in one year: Genesis 17-18, Revelation 6:3-17, Hymnal: Sing hymn 6

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
                         John 10:10

For you to reap the full benefits of the abundant life that Jesus Christ came to give, you need to understand the character of this life. Open heavens. Many children of God short-change themselves because they do not know that the redemption which Jesus Christ earned for us through His Blood is an all-round redemption that touches every aspect of our lives (Colossians 1:14; 20). For example, not only did He redeem us from the power of sin, He also translated us to become citizens of God’s kingdom. Open Heaven for today. As kingdom citizens, we are lifted above the principalities and powers of this world. The Holy Spirit makes this truth clear through these verses of Scripture:

“Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in thatk which is to come:”
                    Ephesians 1:20-21

“And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places  in Christ Jesus:”
                       Ephesians 2:5

The implication of this is that the devil should no longer dominate, buffet or torment us anymore because we are no longer under his feet, where sin had previously kept us. We have bought with a price that frees us from the tyrant master (1st Corinthians 7:23, Hebrews 2:14). We are divinely promoted as kings and priests, as declared in Revelation 5:10:

“And hast made us unto our God kings and priest: and we shall reign on the earth.”

We are redeemed and promoted above sorrow, poverty sickness and every form of oppression of the devil. Beloved, learn to celebrate and enforce the divine promotion you have obtained through redemption. Moreover, if you desire promotion in any facet of your life, our text tells us that only God promotes. Therefore, put your trust in God, and your promotion will manifest sooner rather than later, and it will be beyond your widest imagination in Jesus’ Name.
Action Point
Spend some quality time to celebrate your divine promotion by rendering high praises to God.
