Topic: Choose Your Company Wisely
Daily Personal Confession
I confess today; I will never be subjected to any inhumane authority working against the will of God. The lord has built a wall around my life therefore making it impenetrable for the works and workers of darkness. My father has opened my eyes and heaven to the glory of His name. I am forever able to succeed and I will never fail in Jesus name. Amen!
Memorize: Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? – 2 Corinthians 6:14
Bible Reading: Psalm 26:4-5 (KJV)
4 I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers.
5 I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.
You can attract blessings just by being around the right people. Likewise, it is possible to pick up curses by being in the wrong company. That is why the Psalmist said in Psalm 26:4-5:
“4 I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers.
5 I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.”
Some time ago, I travelled abroad for a crusade and noted the absence of a particular son of mine who was ill at the time.
I went to the hospital and while praying for him, I felt the power of God come down mightily
. The next day, I got a report that not only had my son been healed and discharged, but also everyone else in the ward. They got their healing just because they shared the same ward with my son.
Who you associate with has a great influence on what you attract.
This is why you must be friends with good Christians. Search for people who are wiser than you and be their friends. Proverbs 13:20 says:
“He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.”
Don’t stay in the midst of gossips or people jesting about their sinful acts. If you find yourself among those smoking and drinking, leave immediately.
Always choose your partners and associates carefully. Partner with genuine children of God.
If the person carries the blessings of God, you can be sure that your project(s) will be blessed.
When you are in business with one who is suggesting you cut corners, give bribes or cheat, break such relationships because that fellow will invite the devil into your enterprise.
God commands us to love our neighbour as ourselves, not that everyone must be our friend. We must choose our company wisely. Keep your associations pure.
Dissociate yourself from every ungodly friend today.
Thank You, my Father, for the salvation of my soul, and for the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Holy Spirit, my senior partner, I ask that You fill me afresh to the brim and ac company me every inch of the way, in my life’s journey, in Jesus’ name.
Father, please, give me the grace never to be unequally yoked with an unbeliever, in all areas of my life, in Jesus’ name.
Father, give me the grace to choose my company wisely; let me never sit with vain or wicked persons, nor be attracted to the congregation of evil doers, in Jesus’ name.
