being the Prime Minister of Egypt (Genesis 41:39-40).
So you see,
every day is an opportunity for you to experience promotion, and the Lord wants
you to apprehend that new and higher level that He has prepared for you!
There’s room for you at the top, so go for it! He can even use unfavourable
situations, which ordinarily should have led to your disadvantage as the very
means for your promotion because you’re His favoured child. Humble yourself; be
diligent in all that you do, and by the Spirit of God, you’ll keep experiencing
