“As iron sharpens iron, So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.”
One of the ways to know you’re blessed is through the quality of the people around you. The people God has blessed you with whom you can walk in strategic partnership and fellowship. In a few minutes, thank God for the people He has placed in your life. Then, flip through your life’s pages, see how deliberately the Lord has placed certain persons in your life, and thank Him.
Friendship with the right people is a game-changer for destiny, and it must be sought deliberately, and when gotten, it must be cherished like precious gold. The friendship between David and Jonathan is an example of such friendship. It is not a parasitic kind of friendship. On the contrary, they loved each other and could go to any length to help each other.
When you pray, pray that God leads you to His choice of friends, and then make yourself friendly. Put yourself out there; show forth the fruits of godliness, as you can only attract reflections of yourself. For the friends you already have, treasure them, build with them, go deeper in fellowship and communion with them, and express your gratitude for their presence in your life. However, if you have been friends with the wrong sets of people who will not allow you to shine forth the glory of your Father, please ask for the wisdom to dissolve such friendship peacefully.
Remember, “A man who has friends must himself be friendly, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother” Prov. 18:24. What type of friend are you? What type of friends do you keep? Never forget that “Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.” 1Cor. 15:33,
- Lord, I thank you for the people you have put in my life at strategic seasons. I’m grateful.
- Lord, help me to honour my friends continually and not be a parasitic friend.
- Lord, I ask that you lead me to friends that will shape my life according to your will.
- Lord, please, help me cut off any friendship that is not pleasing to you.
