“Exalt her (wisdom), and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee honour, when thou dost embrace her. She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee” (Proverbs 4:8-9).
Do you desire promotion in your life? If you do, then do as the Bible says: Exalt wisdom and it will promote you. I think this is good news! It means that you don’t have to try to get man’s favour or attention for your promotion for the secret is in your Bible.
Wisdom’s promotion is more rewarding than the promotion of men. What’s more, when it comes, it’s undeniable. For example, Joseph was sold by his brothers into Egypt as a slave (Genesis 37). In the course of time, his master’s wife accused him falsely and he was imprisoned. However, wisdom kept promoting Joseph, even while he was in the prison until he became the head of the prisoners (Genesis 39:22-22). For some time, it seemed like that would be the end of story.
One night, the Pharaoh had a dream which none of his magicians could interpret. Someone remembered the wise Hebrew prisoner and recommended him to the Pharaoh. Joseph was brought before the Pharaoh and he interpreted the king’s dream. When Joseph finished speaking, the Pharaoh said, “Can we find such a one as this is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is? …THERE IS NONE SO DISCREET AND WISE AS THOU ART…I have set thee over all the land of Egypt” ((Genesis 41:38-41). The Egyptian empire was preserved by the wisdom of one young man, Joseph.
If wisdom could promote a thirty-year old prisoner to Prime Minister of the most powerful empire overnight, what can it not do for you? Sadly, a lot of people haven’t realized that wisdom is a promoter.
In your life, exalt wisdom; give it priority and it will exalt you. The wisdom of God is the Word of God, so go for the Word. Give it the deserved attention and importance, and it’ll promote you and bring you to honour and glory.
