Divine motion births promotion. Kingdom advancement is not like corporate advancement. The Lord exalts the humble and resists the proud. When we walk in our callings as dancers, the Lord will open up doors for us that cannot be shut. Our gift makes room for us. When we try to press our way into a position, we will have to keep pressing to keep those doors open.

There are many today that are working the "Corporate Model" of the church. As a result, positions in ministry often birth rivalries and foster competition when a person sets his or her heart on advancing themselves instead of advancing the Kingdom. Like Joseph, the Lord may show us that we are to be great leaders, but also like Joseph, we must do it according to the Lord's timeline. The Lord placed him in the position to rule. Joseph did not bang on the King's door with a demand to operate in his gift.

Wait on the Lord, and continue to do the work that He has set before you. If you are found doing His will, then phone calls, ministry invitations and opportunities will come from even the most unlikely places. Do not concern yourself when others seem to be advancing while it seems that you have been forgotten. An invitation of honor is always better than a denied request.

Proverbs 4:7-8 (NKJV)
"Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding. Exalt her, and she will promote you; She will bring you honor, when you embrace her."

Job 36:7 (NKJV)
"He does not withdraw His eyes from the righteous; but they are on the throne with kings, for He has seated them forever, and they are exalted."

Matthew 23:12 (NKJV)
"And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted."
