Topic: Maintaining the Right Association for Destiny Fulfilment [Seeds of Destiny 19 August 2018 Daily Devotional]
Scripture: Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners. 1 Corinthians 15:33
Thought For The Day: Love everybody but relate with people who are positively influential to your life and destiny.
Yesterday, we looked at the impact of association on destiny. We saw that your association determines the people you can access in life. Association also affects your motivation. One can be motivated or demotivated in life by the kind of association he keeps. Therefore, it is very important to reject the wrong association and embrace the right one in order to have a quality destiny.
Now, how can you maintain the right association?
i) Associate with the right people for your destiny
There are superior, lateral and subordinate kinds of relationship. Superior relationship is when you look up to someone higher than you; this includes your father, pastor or mentor. Lateral relationship is the relationship that exists between you and someone on the same level with you and the subordinate relationship is the one that exists between you and people who look up to you in life. In all these kinds of relationship, ensure you relate with the right people at all levels.
ii) Disconnect from the wrong influence
Bishop Abioye once said that we have been commanded to love but never commanded to be friends with everyone. Love is a command but relationship is a choice. Love liberally but relate wisely; love everyone but relate with people that are positively influential to your life and destiny.
iii) Ask God to send the right people into your life on a consistent basis
Prayer is necessary because a thousand good friends are not too many but one bad friend is too much.
Beloved, as you carry out the outlined actions above, I decree that God shall connect you with the right influences in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: Love everybody but relate with people who are positively influential to your life and destiny.
1. Associate correctly.
2. Disconnect from wrong influences.
3. Ask God to send the right people into your life.
Prayer: O Lord, I ask for the grace to associate correctly and disconnect from every wrong influence in my life. Send the right people into my life, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
