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: There are people whose association with you can cause your visions to disappear.
It has been confirmed that the wrong company can signal the end of vision, destiny and even life itself. If a man is not careful about his choice of friendship then he is not concerned about his future.
The case of the wise men from the East and their encounter with Herod depicted a clear example and effects of the wrong company (Matthew 2:1-9).
The wise men came from the East to visit the new born King of kings, Jesus, and a star led them. However, instead of following the star strictly, they went to the house of Herod to ask where the King should be born.
The question is, who told them that Herod could do what the star was doing for them? Was the star tired of leading them? With their human wisdom, they went to the house of Herod.
You see, you can never complete in the energy of the flesh, what was started in the power of the Spirit. Do not ever let the flesh finish what the Spirit started.
Now, when they went to Herod’s house, the star could no longer be sighted. It was when they stepped out of Herod’s house that the star reappeared (Matthew 2:9).
Beloved, ‘Herod’ can make your star disappear. Beware of Herod! There are people whose association with you can cause your visions to disappear. There are people whose association with you can quench your shining and terminate your distinction. The wrong company brings distraction; it assists you to move in directions that take you away from your original path of vision. That will never be your portion, in Jesus name.
So, avoid the wrong association.
Remember this: There are people whose association with you can cause your visions to disappear.
1. Avoid the wrong company.
2. Be careful who you tell your vision.
PRAYER: Lord, preserve my visions unto fulfilment. Reveal to me the vision killers around my life that I need to avoid Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
