Do not be deceived: Evil company corrupts good habits. (1 Corinthians 15:33, NKJV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Sometimes, in order to embrace the destiny God has in store, you have to be willing to make some changes in your life. You have to be willing to examine where you are and what you need to move forward. This may mean that you need to change some friends that youre spending time with. Maybe they were fine for a season in your life, but now youve outgrown them. This is a new season, and in order for you to rise higher, you have to break away from relationships that are limiting you. You have to develop some new relationships with people who are going to pull you up and inspire you to rise higher.
And, this doesnt just mean separating yourself from people who are holding you back spiritually. Ive found that if youre the smartest one in your group, your group is too small. Find people who will challenge you to stretch to the next level and become everything Gods created you to be. Remember, he who walks with the wise becomes wise. Choose your friends wisely and dont be deceived. Surround yourself with people who will cause you to rise higher so you can live in the destiny God has in store for you!
A Prayer for Today
Father God, thank You for Your grace and mercy. Thank You for the good plan You have for my life. Help me choose my friends and companions wisely so that I can continue to move forward in the destiny You have for me in Jesus name. Amen.
