TOPIC: Promoted During Lockdown
BASIC SCRIPTURE: Job 22:21-30
I got the mail below and decided to share it: “Good day Sir, I am writing to share this testimony as I had promised to do. The company I work for had announced redundancies. Suddenly, the first lockdown happened. We all started working from home and the proposed redundancy date was moved forward. I was already tired of the place as I had been on the same grade for a very long time with the amount of work increasing. So I prayed that I would leave in a big way.
Sometime in June 2020 (DURING THE LOCKDOWN SEASON), an emergency meeting was called just 2 days after the regular departmental meeting. We all wondered what it was for. To the glory of God, that meeting was to announce promotions and my team was included. To top it all, the promotions were backdated to July 2019.
I left that company at the end of 2020 in a big way as that promotion also affected our final payoff. Our God is indeed awesome! He does not sleep nor slumber! Thank you Almighty Father. Please kindly withhold my name and contact for security reasons. Thank you.” Amazing! SHE WAS PROMOTED WHEN MILLIONS WERE LOSING THEIR JOBS WORLDWIDE! That will be your story!
Indeed 2020 was a year many would wish never returned forever! It was a year of worldwide LOCKDOWNS (no church hall opened for 6 months), horrible COVID deaths/burials without the presence of loved ones, etc. In this 14-day fasting programme, never forget that Job 22:29 says: “When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, ‘There is lifting up; and He shall save the humble person.” The humble person is HE/SHE that trusts in the LORD! That means when things are TOUGH and everyone is COMPLAINING, always remember that YOUR CASE IS DIFFERENT! Never complain like them!
The worst season on earth or your nation will bring out your best testimony… (To be continued tomorrow)
