MFM MOUNTAIN TOP LIFE DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR OCTOBER 10, 2023 (FLEE THE WRONG COMPANY II)
TOPIC : FLEE THE WRONG COMPANY (II)
Memory Verse: 1 Corinthian 15:33
Be not deceived; evil communications corrupt good manners.
Company reveals your character. Choose your friends wisely.
Prophetic word for today
You shall not be a victim of wrong choice and wrong counsel, in the names of Jesus.
Fire Scripture: 1 Kings: 12:6-16
Praise & Worship
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Jeremiah 19 – 20; Acts 6 – 7.
Still on the issue of wrong company, we can see King Rehoboam, son of Solomon, in today’s fire scripture. He took the counsel of the wrong company, his friends, against the godly wisdom of the elders. The consequences were the break-away of ten tribes out of the twelve tribes of Israel at that time, to follow Jeroboam.
This may sound like a fulfilment of the prophecy or the word of the Lord against the descendants of Salomon. Yet, it was the consequence of taking the wrong counsel from the wrong company. Rehoboam had an opportunity to make a choice. He went with his friends who lacked godly wisdom and eventually fell into wrong governance. The people departed from him! Who do you blame for that?
Look back, beloved, and see where and how you have made such a mistake. Or are you at the verge of which way should I go? Be careful! Let the counsel of God guide you and there shall be a good outcome. Don’t be wise in your own eyes, neither allow the folly of others to derail you. Someone said that it is better to walk alone than to walk with bad friends. When David returned from the war in Ziklag in 1 Samuel 30? On their return, instead of celebrating victory, it was sorrow and mourning. Why? The enemies besieged their homes and carried away their wives and properties. Men wept like babies, including David. But thank God for wisdom. David encouraged himself in the Lord. Also, God instructed him to pursue, overtake and recover all that the enemies have taken from them. He surely recovered all. You can do the same.
The Bible counsels us never to lean on our own understanding. Rather, we should acknowledge God and He will direct our path (Prov 3:5-7). David did. God showed him the way and saw him through. What if he had joined the company of weepers and mourners? They would have continued in their celebration of sorrow and regrets, and by the time they want to make a move, it would have been too late! I pray that you will not fall victim of evil companies, in the name of Jesus.
