THE PLAGUE OF WRONG ASSOCIATION
Association fuels assimilation, and who surrounds you determines what you can survive.
SCRIPTURE: 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.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Association fuels assimilation, and who surrounds you determines what you can survive.
An association is the fact of being involved with or connected to someone or something. To be associated with someone, therefore, means to be involved with, or connected to them.
The importance of the right association cannot be over-emphasized. It has been confirmed that association fuels assimilation, and who surrounds you determines what you can survive. So, the right association is very crucial for life and destiny fulfilment.
Beloved, it is expedient that you change your association the moment you surrender your life to Christ. It is not possible for a person who is born again, filled with the Holy Ghost, to have a drunkard, smoker or womanizer as his closest friend. The truth is that it is risky to think that they cannot convince him to compromise.
If I may ask, is it possible for a fly to play on a hot stove even if the fly had a dream where it saw itself playing on the hot stove? Will that fly make such a dream a reality? NO! You cannot be fire and garbage survives around you without being burnt.
I personally know some people who avoid us like a plague because they are not born again. Our mere appearance torments their souls and convicts them of their compromise.
Now, if a child of God always enjoys the company of the ungodly, he should also be ready to enjoy their destination which is hell fire because, who you company with determines what accompanies you. Who you follow determines what follows you.
My counsel is, if you are not a vulture that inhabits corruption but an eagle that will not taste rottenness, then locate your kind in order to fulfil your destiny.
REMEMBER THIS: Association fuels assimilation, and who surrounds you determines what you can survive.
1. Consciously choose your association.
2. Disengage from any association that will make you compromise your faith in God.
PRAYER: Lord, by the Blood of Jesus, I disconnect from every wrong and ungodly association. Connect me with the right people who will fuel my passion for You, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
