Today's Devotion (Wednesday)

MOUNTAIN TOP LIFE DAILY DEVOTIONAL



ASSOCIATE WITH THE RIGHT PEOPLE


FIRE SCRIPTURE: Deuteronomy 7:2-6


MEMORY VERSE:

 2 Corinthians 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you."


PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit


THE MESSAGE:

Right from the time God called Abraham out of his country, He wanted him and his generation yet unborn to be special people unto Him and be separated from the world so that they will not be corrupted.


The same warning was repeated even when the Israelites got to the Promised Land. God told them not to mingle with the Canaanites. Any close and personal association with people who do not follow God's command (especially connections that involve feelings and emotions of commitment that has to do with long-term relationships) will eventually destroy the uniqueness and holiness of God's people. Such matters as inter-marriage of God's people with unbelievers or close friendship with unbelievers may turn believers away from following God. God told the Israelites not to have pity on the people of the land and not to give their daughters to them in marriage, and neither should they marry their daughters for their sons.


Association with the right people will foster our relationship with God and make it stronger, but any contrary association will be to our detriment. Solomon's heart was changed by the strange women he married. He began to serve their gods and idols and it made God to be angry with him. It was due to that reason that God rent the kingdom from him (1 Kings 11:6-11). The Bible, warning us against evil association, says, "Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners" (1 Corinthians 15:13). Whoever you associate yourself with will influence you either positively or negatively.


Our Memory Verse for today enjoins us to "Come out from among them, and be separate." Beloved, God loves you and wants you to focus on Him only, not on anything that will influence you negatively to forsake Him and turn your heart away from Him. Forsake your worldly friends. David and Jonathan, Paul and Silas, Naomi and Ruth all had fruitful relationships. Anyone who hinders or reduces your walk and closeness to God deserves to be avoided. May God help you, in Jesus' name. 


MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE:

When we have nothing left but God, we will see that God is more than enough.


PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:

THE POWER TO MEET THE RIGHT PEOPLE IN THE RIGHT LOCATION SHALL COME INTO YOUR LIFE, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
