SCRIPTURE: Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend. Proverbs 27:17.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Relationships can either bring you acceleration or establish your stagnation.
Seeds of Destiny 2 March 2021 Devotional Message:
It has been confirmed that the right relationship is key to destiny fulfilment. Your relationship can either make or mar your life and destiny.
Now, I will like you to take note of these three key thoughts on relationships:
i. Relationships can either bring you acceleration or establish your stagnation (Genesis 13:14)
There are people who entered your life and your life shifted; and there are those who hung around you and you are stagnated. For example, until Lot left Abraham, Abraham’s destiny couldn’t open up (Gen. 13:14). That is why it is very important to observe and pray well before you marry someone or get into any relationship.
There are people whose best days in life were the days before their marriage. That will not be your portion in Jesus’ Name.
ii. Relationship can contribute to your preservation or facilitate your destruction
The wrong relationship can kill a person physically. A person can die prematurely because of being found with the wrong people at the wrong place. There are those who have died other people’s death, and others have lost properties because of wrong associations (Jonah 1:5). But that will never be your portion in Jesus’ Name.
iii. Relationships can never leave you neutral
Your relationship is either adding something to you or taking something from you. Your relationship will either sharpen your life (Proverbs 27:17) or leave you blunt. No one relates with you on a neutral ground; everyone either adds or takes something from you.
Beloved, make up your mind to engage wisdom in relationship if you want to reach your future.
Remember this: Relationships can either bring you acceleration or establish your stagnation.
1. Give attention to your relationships in order to have a buoyant destiny. Relate carefully.
2. Make up your mind to engage in profitable relationships.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask that You give me quality and productive relationships that will facilitate my destiny fulfilment, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
