THE POWER OF RELATIONSHIP
By DIGC24 February 2021
The relationship you keep per time can bring out the best in your life or the worst out of your life.
SCRIPTURE: Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend. Proverbs 27:17.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: A relationship can make or mar your life and destiny.
Previously, we saw the importance of wisdom. We saw that wisdom is needed for a gainful living, outstanding life, and palatial existence.
Now, one critical area of wisdom I will like to explore with you today is the wisdom for relationship.
Please take note of the following key thoughts on relationship wisdom:
a. A relationship can make or mar your life and destiny (Judges 16:16-19, Daniel 2:49)
The relationship you keep per time can be the making of your life or the marring of your destiny.
b. Relationship can bring the best or the worst out of the life of a person (Prov. 27:17).
The relationship you keep per time can bring out the best in your life or the worst out of your life. For example, a person who has not been smoking, lying or cheating before can start smoking, lying or cheating because of whom he chooses to relate closely with.
On the other hand, a person who doesn’t know how to pray can become prayerful because he gets connected with a prayerful person.
Beloved, my counsel for you today is: choose your association carefully if you must fulfil destiny.
Remember this: A relationship can make or mar your life and destiny.
- Relate with people who will bring out the best in you.
- Disconnect from anyone whose influence can mar your life and destiny.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for showing me relationship wisdom. I receive the grace to relate with the right people and disconnect from the wrong people, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: It is wisdom to find out what you are looking for in life; what God wants to do with your life; what will take you to your desired destination fast, and direct your energies there. The first of such activities, I believe, is your relationship with God – the time given to prayer and the study of the Word. Culled from “21 FOOLISH THINGS PEOPLE DO” by Dr Paul Enenche.
DAILY READING: 1 Samuel 8-11.

PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: The LORD free you from every wrong relationship and bring the right people into your life in Jesus’ Name.
