This is a new season, and in order for you to rise higher, you have to break away from relationships that are limiting you. Sometimes in order to embrace the destiny God has in store, you have to be willing to make some difficult changes in your life. You have to be willing to examine where you are, and what you need to do in order to move forward. This may mean that you need to change some friends youâ€™re spending time with. Maybe they were fine for a season in your life, but youâ€™ve outgrown them. You have to develop some new friendships with people who are going to pull you up and inspire you to rise higher.
Iâ€™ve said this many times and still maintain it today, that if youâ€™re the smartest one in your group, your group is too small. Find people who are smarter than you, people who will challenge you to stretch to the next level. If you are not stretched, life will become boring, mundane and static.
Today, I remind you, he who walks with the wise becomes wise. Choose your friends wisely, donâ€™t allow them to hold you back, or hold you down, or even talk you out of your dreams, so you can rise higher and walk in the dignity and in the destiny God has for you.
â€œHe who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harmâ€ (Proverbs 13:20, NIV)
Pray With Me
Yahweh, thank You for Your grace and mercy, Father, I ask You for the power to walk away from evil, small-minded, uninspiring relationships. Thank You for the plan You have for my life. God, help me choose my friends and companions wisely, so that I can continue to move forward and not backwards or sideways, so I can arrive at the destiny You have for me. In Christâ€™s Name! Amen.
