TOPIC: BLESSED BY ASSOCIATION
Read: 2 Kings 6:11-17
“And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.” Genesis 22:18
In today’s Bible reading, Elisha’s servant enjoyed the same protection as his master because of association. One of my sons says it often that your association determines your allocation, which means that what comes to you is as a result of those who surround you. When God made a covenant with Abraham, He purposed that the blessing would outlive him and He would make sure that through his seed, every nation on earth would be blessed.
Today, anyone who believes in Jesus becomes the seed of Abraham and by extension, enjoys the blessings of Abraham (Galatians 3:13-14 ).As a child of God, be mindful of those you mingle or associate with because their blessings or curses could rub off on you. When God asked Abraham to leave his fatherland, he took Lot along. God didn’t fulfil His promise in the life of Abraham until he separated himself from Lot.
There are some relationships that will hinder the move of God in your life. Thus, if you’re entangled with the wrong person, separate yourself from the fellow today. Go back to God and build a relationship with Him so that He can guide you on whom to associate with henceforth.
Point: Break away from every negative association without looking back.
