The Think Book by Dr. Larry D. Reid says, “Who you hang around determines your ground” – your relationships are a prophecy of your future. If you want to know what direction you are headed in life look at your direct circle around you. Are you surrounded by broke, sick, mindless people? Then by principle that is who you are.
1 Corinthians 15:33
33 Be not deceived: “Evil associations corrupt good manners.”
This short but simple scripture shows us a very powerful life principle – the company you keep can corrupt the good in you. There are plenty of examples in the bible where leaders of our current Faith was ordered by God to separate themselves from even their families just so they can be used by Him.
Remember this – before elevation there is always some form of separation you have to go through!! Selah….
I touched on this in my teaching this past Sunday titled, “Even More Fruitful” That if we are going to grow in God we have to go through separation and cutbacks. One of the cutbacks is from people that we started out with, but during the journey- lost their purpose. These can be people that we love, that we get along with so well, but at this critical time in your life they are dangerous to your growth and development.
Today I want you to make an honest list of those in your life that you KNOW don’t fit the re-shaping that is going on in your soul. See God wants to take you somewhere lofty, but everything has to be in order…..EVERYTHING!
Are you willing to make the sacrifice now, to enjoy the place called MORE FRUIT later?
