Going Up: God’s System of Promotion—Part 1
Three Vital Keys to Your Promotion

Started on Sundays 04/11 through 05/30 2010

The three keys to promotion in God are:
  • Promotion comes from God
    • You don't have to run after promotion, promotion will chase YOU down.
    • Psalm 75:4-7 (New International Version)


       4 To the arrogant I say, 'Boast no more,'
             and to the wicked, 'Do not lift up your horns.

       5 Do not lift your horns against heaven;
             do not speak with outstretched neck.' "

       6 No one from the east or the west
             or from the desert can exalt a man.

       7 But it is God who judges:
             He brings one down, he exalts another.
    • 1 Corinthians 12:18 (New International Version)

      18But in fact God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be.
  • Promotion starts with the heart
    • David never said "I WILL become King!" He simply served Saul faithfully despite the fact that Saul tried to kill him. 
    • Acts 13:22 (New International Version)

      22After removing Saul, he made David their king. He testified concerning him: 'I have found David son of Jesse a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do.'
       
    •  1 Samuel 16:7 (New International Version)


       7 But the LORD said to Samuel, "Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart." 
  • Promotion is NOT a goal it is a result!
    • David Reaped the Harvest of Promotion
    • Promotion is not something that we seek it is a harvest that we reap
    • Matthew 6:33 (New International Version)

      33But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
There are several Character Issues regarding Promotion. If your character is not right any promotion will not last. What you compromise to get you WILL eventually loose.

The Character issues are:

  • Servants Heart
    • Psalm 116:16 (New International Version)


       16 O LORD, truly I am your servant;
             I am your servant, the son of your maidservant [a] ;
             you have freed me from my chains.
    • Luke 22:27 (New International Version)

      27For who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who is at the table? But I am among you as one who serves.
  • Humility
    • Humility is NOT "You put You Down"
    • Humility IS "You Put You Aside for others"
    • Proverbs 29:23 (New International Version)


       23 A man's pride brings him low,
             but a man of lowly spirit gains honor.



       
  • Diligence
    • 1 Samuel 17

      The three oldest followed Saul, 15 but David went back and forth from Saul to tend his father's sheep at Bethlehem...
      57 As soon as David returned from killing the Philistine, Abner took him and brought him before Saul, with David still holding the Philistine's head.
       58 "Whose son are you, young man?" Saul asked him.
            David said, "I am the son of your servant Jesse of Bethlehem."
    • Proverbs 12:24 (New International Version)


       24 Diligent hands will rule,
             but laziness ends in slave labor.
  • Faithfulness
    • Proverbs 20:6 (New International Version)


       6 Many a man claims to have unfailing love,
             but a faithful man who can find?
    • 1 Samuel 22:14 (New International Version)


       14 Ahimelech answered the king, "Who of all your servants is as loyal as David, the king's son-in-law, captain of your bodyguard and highly respected in your household?
    • Matthew 25:21 (New International Version)


       21"His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!'
  • Integrity
    • Psalm 26:11 (New International Version)


       11 But I lead a blameless life;
             redeem me and be merciful to me.



Not pursueing God and His kingdom will cause you to be held back in life. The things that you think matter here matter little in God's eyes. There will be many who were held in HIGH esteem by our christian histories that occupy the lowest ranks of Heaven. Don't set your eyes on being approved of men but of God. 

Don't fall into pride on the other side either which is false humility. Don't seek to put yourself down out of the sight of men if that is your calling. Just because you are are noticed of men doesn't mean you won't have a high rank in the Kingdom. 


God's kingdom doesn't care if men do or don't see you. God's kingdom is concerned with how God sees you. The hand of the Diligent will rule.

Darrell's Reading List


Here are some books I've been reading lately:

  • Saint: A Paradise Novel (here) by Ted Dekker (Author). He's an assassin, or is he? He finds a secret to his past that unlocks supernatural abilities, at a cost.

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

Cashless Society...

Tale of Two Seasons:
As we quickly approach the last days there are two sets of events simultaneously emerging. The one most average Christians know about, and the one fewer know about. 
Tribulation: Revelation 13:16He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads...
"The Tribulation", a period of 7 years where the earth will come under tremendous stress. Having been vacated of all the Christians, filled with the Holy Spirit, who are the salt and light, and therefore restraining the darkness; the Prince of this present world's system, Satan, will cause his Anti Christ to emerge. 
People will get saved under the preaching of many who knew of the Gospel but didn't believe in their heart or confess with their mouth. There will also be 144,000 Jewish witnesses, from each of the 12 tribes of Israel, who will preach salvation on the earth. Primarily, they will be sent to the people of Israel, and the…

Have you died yet today?

Recently, I said I wasn't religious but I did have a relationship with Jesus. The person replied that is a "textbook" response for a Christian; therefore, I am a Christian; therefore, I am religious.

I have to laugh because "religion" is the dead following of dead traditions. The difference between my two-way relationship with a real living person (Jesus) and a religious person is the difference between a Tree and a Motorcycle. They have nothing to do with one-another.

Yet, I can see how they get it. Religious people would read this passage and see something totally different than I see, yet we read the same passage.
...anyone who has died has been set free from sin... In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus... Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?

The Future of Work: Is being a writer (artist, musician, creative) an impractical career?

In a writers group on Facebook, a young writer asked (edited):
How do you respond to family members saying that being a writer is impractical? This is a great question. When I was going to college I stopped pursuing music and theater because it didn't seem to lead to a "practical career". I got bogged down in other things and eventually dropped out (after six years and 78 units). But times are changing and we're in a new type of revolution.

So, what do you think?
What is the future of work? How would you respond?
What is impractical, what does that even mean?First, you reply:
You said 'impractical' when I think you meant 'I'm Practical'. The root of Impractical is Practical, or to be "not-practical". The word practical is derived from the root word PRACTICE.
practicale "of or pertaining to matters of practice; applied,"  All careers require a great deal of practice, hard work, study of the chosen field, and many small wins before th…

FICO, Credit Building, and Credit Cards

FICOSo, I'm still hearing a lot of people say things that are not true, don't make sense, or are just plain bad advice. Credit building is not rocket science. Yes, the formulas and math behind them actually are akin to rocket science math. But some of the basic things the average person needs to know are actually quite simple.
If you want to build credit without paying interest or creating debt read on, or just skip to the bottom to the conclusion. I'm sure you've seen this funny video on TV:


I wrote a post previously about FICO and Credit Decisions, now I want to bring in the focus a little to some basics. The very first things you should know is that THE company that creates your credit score is FICO (the Fair Isaac Corporation). It was started by Bill Fair and Earl Isaac. It is now THE leading credit scoring company on the planet. FICO is the most used credit scoring platform accounting for over 100 BILLION scores sold to date.
