SCRIPTURE: He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed. Proverbs 13:20.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: If you walk with giants, you cannot take dwarfish steps.
It has been established that association defines destiny. The association you keep directly takes you to or away from your destiny. The company you keep determines where you will end. So, company is critical to destiny.
Now, one major effect of association is that association determines assimilation and impartation.
Assimilation means absorbing knowingly or unknowingly what the person you are walking with carries. What the person you keep company with carries flows into you consciously or unconsciously.
For example, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego charged each other in maintaining their stance for God by refusing to bow to the image of the king. Peter and John also charged themselves. And if your association is with a person of higher level of unction, it brings impartation to you. Your association with a higher anointed person makes his/her unction to flow down upon you because water will always flow down the gradient.
For example, one reason God has helped us to build a massive structure like the Glory Dome is because of our association with a higher unction, God’s servant, Bishop David Oyedepo. I saw the foundation of Faith Tabernacle, Canaanland. I saw how the structure was built from the scratch. We once worshipped in that structure when there was no roof on it. So, the Glory Dome is a product of such massive inspiration and impartation.
Beloved, if you walk with giants, you cannot take dwarfish steps. By all means, your steps will become those of giants. And if a giant gave birth to you, you are genetically implicated for height.
Remember this: If you walk with giants, you cannot take dwarfish steps.
1. Pay attention to quality association.
2. Reject all negative influences over life.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for showing me the place of quality association in destiny fulfilment. Help me to attract and keep positive association Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
