(SATURDAY 4TH AUGUST, 2018)
SCRIPTURE: Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners. 1 Corinthians 15:33
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The human (or people) environment of your life affects your atmosphere and attainment in life.
Maintaining the right influence over your life is one of the most important things to do in life. Your life could be influenced directly or indirectly by the kind of friends you keep. Those who speak into your life also influence your life positively or negatively. The influence around your life determines the impact of your life. You cannot have a level of impact on earth higher than the degree of influence around you. Your friendship determines your reach in life. That is why maintaining the right influence is one of the most important things to do in life.
Someone once said that if you can point out the seven closest persons to your life, you can see your future. If a drunkard, smoker or borrower is your closest friend, then you are face to face with an unpleasant future. Environment determines attainment. The human (or people) environment of your life affects your atmosphere and attainments. The atmosphere of your life determines the achievements of your life.
Beloved, if you are not yet married, be selective in your choice of marriage partner. If you want to get married and you discover that the character of your fiancé or fiancée is not compatible with yours, you need to reconsider your choice and ask God for direction. If what excites you depresses him/her or your passion is his/her pressure, I counsel you to quit that relationship even though you think you have heard God clearly.
My counsel is, select the influence around your life; select the things you listen to, the things you watch on television, the books you read, the people you call friends and the people who speak into your life. Connect with the kind of people who push out your potentials, bring out your best, assist you to fulfil your life’s assignments, and help your relationship with God.
Remember this: The human (or people) environment of your life affects your atmosphere and attainments in life.
1. Carefully select those who influence your life; select what you hear, watch or who speaks into your life.
2. Ask God to bring the right people your way.
3. Avoid the wrong company; company with people who can and are willing to assist in bringing out the best in you.
PRAYER: O Lord, I ask that you surround me with the right influence. Deliver me from wrong influences so I can maximize destiny, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
