Some folks and things will have to be moved out of the way so that you can begin to make progress in
certain areas of your life!
Do not be surprised when you hear or read of the demise, demotion or removal of individuals from key places or positions in life. The reality is, the removal of such persons will automatically unclog the pipeline of progress for others. This does not necessarily mean that these folks did something wrong to be removed. Instead, this is what is known as the process of progress.
Scripture tells us that Moses in his anger towards the Egyptian soldiers in their mishandling of the Hebrew people, caused him to literally struct and kill one of the Egyptian soldiers and eventually fled Egypt. Scripture further records that after approximately 40 years of being on the run or living in exile, the Lord said unto Moses, "Go back to Egypt, for all those who wanted to kill you are "DEAD" which sought thy life." Exodus 4:19.
After spending such a long time in the wilderness, unknowing to Moses during those 40 years of being on the run, his circumstances were preparing him for the next stage of his life. Interestingly enough, Exodus 4:1-17, a dialog between Moses and God ensued, where God was revealing to Moses what would take place during the next stage of his life. Nevertheless, in spite of all the grand plans, God had for Moses some folks had to be removed that would have usually blocked Moses' progress or should we say delay his destiny.
Okay! So someone died, someone was demoted, someone was fired, someone just up and quit, someone just without notice ended the relationship, well rather than looking at these everyday occurrences from a negative and depressing perspective, your initial thought should be.... Who is about to be advanced? Who is about to be promoted? What change is about to take place? Or Who is about to actually begin living their life after the exit of certain folks?. Better yet! What can you do now that you could not do before because of those blockages that were initially in your way?
I want to say to someone today, that advancement and a new beginning for you will come through some of the most unlikely set of circumstances but fear not because these are the things that God had originally intended to unclog the system of progress just to elevate you!
However, there are three fundamental things that you must make a note of during this transition, and they are:
1) Do not forget where you came from
2) Treat folks the way you would wish to be treated
3) Be fair and just with all that you are given rule over while viewing the past as experience and not a motive to get back at others that were not on your side.
For the day will come when the cycle of removal and promotion will run its course in your life so that others will have the opportunity to be advanced.
