Genesis 28:1-29:35, Matthew 9:18-38
Psalm 11:1-7 and Proverbs 3:11-12
Are you surrounded by Naysayers or Encouragers? Do you have good company or ghastly guest? Are they speaking into your life or causing you death? These are questions to ponder as you move forward in 2014. God wants us to surround ourselves with Kingdom folks who believe what God says: No question asked and no excuses! You want people in your life who make your baby jump and motivate you to do big things for God.
Now understand that I'm not talking about dismissing wise counsel from brothers and sisters that show love in action, but are also honest enough to share with you when you have a bad attitude or an area in your life that you need to work on. This is a good thing when you have people that support you but are also upfront about your weaknesses. Be weary of those that have so much good to tell you and make excuses for your wrongs, 9 times out of ten, they are using you to get what they want and hope you will fall for it if you have itchy ears.
With that being said, allow God to show you who are the divine connections in your life and be brave enough to dismiss the negative, doubting folks from out of your company. Jesus Christ brought the servant's dead daughter back to life. But before He even stretched out Hands to heal her, He told the noisy crowd "Get out!" The crowd laughed and start Jesus was crazy, but we know God got the last and best laugh as the young girl arose from the dead! Believe Jesus Christ and Him only! Refuse to listen to the naysayers! They make talk about you and even laugh at you, but when its all said and done, You win and have the victory in Christ Jesus!
Receive God's Best and Never Settle for Less!!!
