Dunamis’ Seeds Of Destiny 27 February 2021 Devotional By Pastor Paul Enenche – The Two-Sided Effect Of Relationship
Topic: The Two-Sided Effect Of Relationship
Having wisdom for relationship is critical to destiny fulfilment.
SCRIPTURE: Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend. Proverbs 27:17.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Your relationship can either facilitate your gain or guarantee your loss.
It has been established that the relationship we keep is critical to life and destiny. That is why having wisdom for relationship is critical to destiny fulfilment.
In our study today, we shall be looking at the two sides of relationship. This will guide you to relate correctly:
a. Relationship can bring you pain or pleasure (2 Samuel 13:1-6, 23-28).
One person in your life can be the reason for your pain or the reason for your pleasure.
Sometime ago, someone told me that he was invited to a church but he refused to go until he saw enough reason to go. He refused to go to church initially because the person who invited him had defrauded him before.
Beloved, you may not know the number of people who refused to go to church or probably went to hell because of someone in church who was the cause of their pain. So, your relationship can bring you pain or pleasure.
b. Relationship can facilitate your gain or guarantee your loss (Daniel 2:49, Judges 16:16-19)
There is a relationship that can make your life gainful and there is another relationship that can leave you with losses.
Sometime ago, I was talking with a man who stepped into a relationship or an association.
When I knew him some twenty years ago, he was a vibrant young man; he was on fire for God. He studied to the highest level in his field and expertise. But he told me, “Since I went into that association, I lost everything. The only thing I have not lost is my life. I am living in just a room now with plastic chairs as my furniture”.
Now, this is a man whose colleagues are comfortably making millions of Naira on a monthly basis. So, your relationship can either facilitate your gain or guarantee your loss.
Remember this: Your relationship can either facilitate your gain or guarantee your loss.
- Ask God to guide you into a profitable relationship.
- Associate with people who can add value to your life.
PRAYER: O Lord, I ask that You guide me into a profitable relationship that will profit my life and destiny, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
