If you want to be successful in your mission in life, you have to make alliances with people that are successful in achieving their own life’s goals. It is no use preparing yourself to excel and then continue to submit your destiny to people who want to live in a realm of complacency. Developing soul ties to people that cause conflict in your life is one of Satan’s greatest strategies to bind up your true potential.
There are some people you can’t get out of your heart! However you must remove them from your life! So you can maintain the peace needed to succeed in your life’s mission. Deep calls unto deep, shallow calls unto shallow! Don’t lay down with dogs, and then complain when you wake up with fleas. Scripture says…He who walks with wise men will become wise. So it would be safe to say, he who fellowships with foolish people, will himself become foolish! And again Scripture says,…remove the contentious person from among you and trouble and strife will cease.
Only you can make the decision whether or not you want to walk around with World War Three going on in your head because you have given a contentious person authority within your life. Or you can remove them, so you can again start to think on heavenly things, that will prosper you in your life’s journey.
If Satan can get you to live in a battle zone you will never build the destiny God has for you. All your time, resources, and energy will be dedicated to fight the war. It is only in a time of peace we can focus on building our dreams. And isn’t that what the gospel of peace we are told to preach, should produce within our lives?
Mental assent is the greatest enemy of true faith!
I have sat in meetings and heard a lot of great expositors of Gods word talk on faith, and what they say is awesome. There is only one problem. They can’t live a lick of what they are preaching. I have also walked alongside many great people of faith that can or can’t explain faith very well. ” But live it with every breath of their life”. They have a faith that goes where many only dream of going. They stand against the impossible and make it possible. They say it can be done when others say it can’t! They do it! I love these men and women of faith. They are so majestic to watch! Friends don’t be one that speaks about faith! Become a man or woman of faith. Jesus said,” Will I find faith in operation when I return?” I truly believe He will! If we determine to live according to such scriptures as James 2:14-18 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.James 2:18
