Have you ever been around people and everything that comes out of their mouth is negative? They have nothing good to say about anything or anybody. It is as if they are not happy with themselves. Their language is fouled and their spirit is depressing.
Hanging around these types of people can be poisonous to you, your health, your spirit, and your character. Here is a statement I heard all my life from my mom, “Who you associate with, will be who you assimilate after”. I was in my late 20’s before I understood what that meant.
If you hang around people who are broke all the time, then you will be broke all the time. If you hang around people who love chaos and confusion, then you will begin to be involved in chaos and confusion. If you hang around people who are selfish, you will start to behave the same way.However, if you hang around people who talk about the blessings of Jesus, then you will talk about the blessings of Jesus. If you surround yourself around people with positive attitudes, you will have a positive attitude.
If you are surrounded by people that are not headed in the route you are going, then you need to reevaluate who you are hanging around. Simply stated, “Watch your surroundings”! Often time, people have ulterior motives for you because they can see the anointing on your life.
If you want positive things to happen in your life, hang around positive people. Hang around people that are going to make you flourish, bloom, and prosper. Surround yourself with people who will use their tongues astutely and sensibly. Encamp yourself with people who will pray with you and not pray against.
Strengthen my discerning spirit to distinguish between spirituality and carnality. God endow in me a discerning spirit that I can see things in the spiritual realm. God I desire to have a spiritual mind to operate in your kingdom. God release anything or anybody that is not headed the direction I am headed. My goal is to be caught up when you crack the sky.
In Jesus’ Name,
