In Deut 28:13 the Lord promised to make His children the HEAD and not the TAIL. So many people are not living the life of the HEAD, they are blown around by every wind that blows. We get the promise but so many times we don’t actually live it out. I believe that PROMOTION comes from the way we LEAD and function in our lives. If we operate as the head and not the tail, we will see PROMOTION in our lives. On the other hand if we are living the life of the TAIL, being pushed around by circumstances in our life, it is hard to get a PROMOTION of any kind. As the story goes, when you follow the rules set up by the CREATOR we will live a life of BLESSING AND PROMOTION for ourselves and our families.
You can be the HEAD and not the TAIL, but the head has to keep his life in order for the PROMOTION TO SOME. PROMOTION comes from the Lord.
