Heaven on Earth Greetings and welcome to another week.
As we continue to explore the enemies of vision, I will like to point out another big one this week; which is WRONG ASSOCIATION.
Many people with big visions have failed because they were victims of the negative influence of keeping wrong people around them, who act as Dream Killers. In fact, whenever you receive a vision from God, there is always need to evaluate your current association to determine who is safe to keep around you.
Proverbs 27:17 “Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.” KJV
Your association will either contribute to the fulfillment of your vision or hinder you from fulfilling it. The truth is that, a genuine pursuit of God’s plan for your life will always cost you some friends. This is where many fail because they do not have the courage to part ways with unproductive friendships and association.
In Acts 15:36-41, Paul considered the association of John Mark detrimental to his vision, so he parted ways with Barnabas who insisted on having association with a man, who was not fully engaged in the pursuit of that vision. In a matter of time, that Paul soon became a giant in the Kingdom and Barnabas faded away.
Wrong association is very costly to any vision.
The world is waiting for your exploits; you cannot afford not to be courageous enough to part ways with wrong association.
God BLESS you
