Topic: The Impact of Association on Destiny [Seeds of Destiny 18 August 2018 Daily Devotional]

Scripture: Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners. 1 Corinthians 15:33

Thought For The Day: The quality of your association determines the quality of people you can access.

The importance of quality association to destiny cannot be overemphasized. Association produces influence, positive or negative which affects our outcome in life. Many great destinies have been ruined because of wrong association. It is important to know that if you must be successful, you have to associate with the right people who can directly or indirectly assist in the fulfilment of your destiny.

Now, I will like you to take note of the following about association:
i) Company determines mind-set and mind-set affects destiny
The way you think is influenced by your association. Your association determines your thought pattern which in turn affects your action and eventual outcome in life.

ii) Company affects character and character determines destiny
Your character can change because of the company you keep. Some people have become ungodly and would no longer have the feeling of guilt because a wrong company came into their lives.

iii) Company supplies counsel
Your company determines the quality of counsel you can access. Wrong counsel equals wrong destiny and the correct counsel equals the correct destiny.

iv) Company determines motivation
Your association determines your motivation in life. Some friends can increase your fire and encouragement while others can discourage you from doing what you are meant to do. The right association can be your motivation and the wrong association can be your demotivation.

v) Your company determines your contact
The quality of people around your life determines the quality of people you can access. Wrong and inconsequential people will connect you with inconsequential contacts.

My counsel is, avoid the wrong company and embrace the right association.

Remember this: The quality of your association determines the quality of people you can access.

1. Avoid the wrong association.
2. Build and maintain quality Company.

Prayer: O Lord, show me the right company that will influence my life positively. I receive the grace to reject every wrong association, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
