Matthew 20:20-28 
[20] Then came to him the mother of Zebedee’s children with her sons, worshipping him , and desiring a certain thing of him. [21] And he said unto her, What wilt thou? She saith unto him, Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on the left, in thy kingdom. [22] But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able. [23] And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of my Father. [24] And when the ten heard it , they were moved with indignation against the two brethren. [25] But Jesus called them unto him , and said, Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them. [26] But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; [27] And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: [28] Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

To every position there is a price. Position is only given by the Father. Seek His Will for your position.

The enemy is still servant to God… and God will use opposition to shape us and prepare us for our future. He will remove things that don’t need to go with you into our future.

Psalm 57:1-2 
[1] Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast. [2] I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me.

No matter who has authority in your life, remember that God has all authority.

Psalm 75:6-7
[6] For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. [7] But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.

Promotion doesn’t come from any direction other than the Throne.

Is 14:13

Dan 2:21
Dan 4:17

Ecclesiastes 5:18-19
[18] Behold that which I have seen: it is good and comely for one to eat and to drink, and to enjoy the good of all his labour that he taketh under the sun all the days of his life, which God giveth him: for it is his portion. [19] Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labour; this is the gift of God.

God’s will is found in His Word…seek it out and live in faith for His Word to manifest.

Choose God’s Word
You will eat the fruit of the decisions you make. Make decisions based on the Word.

The Word will work!!!!

Maturity can be measured by how you treat those that receive what you wanted.

We are stewards of everything that is in our life….everything that is in our life is the Lord’s.

Ultimately how you manage what God has placed in your life will dictate where God can promote you to.

Faithfulness over little is the prerequisite to much.

Luke 16:1-13
[1] And he said also unto his disciples, There was a certain rich man, which had a steward; and the same was accused unto him that he had wasted his goods. [2] And he called him, and said unto him, How is it that I hear this of thee? give an account of thy stewardship; for thou mayest be no longer steward. [3] Then the steward said within himself, What shall I do? for my lord taketh away from me the stewardship: I cannot dig; to beg I am ashamed. [4] I am resolved what to do, that, when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses. [5] So he called every one of his lord’s debtors unto him , and said unto the first, How much owest thou unto my lord? [6] And he said, An hundred measures of oil. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and sit down quickly, and write fifty. [7] Then said he to another, And how much owest thou? And he said, An hundred measures of wheat. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and write fourscore. [8] And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light. [9] And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations. [10] He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much. [11] If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches ? [12] And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man’s, who shall give you that which is your own? [13] No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

God will never ask you to manage what you don’t have.

How you manage what you have will determine if you can go to the next level.

There is no limitations to my life when I am found faithful.

Luke 16:10
[10] He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.

God won’t promote unfaithfulness.
