QUIT THE WRONG GROUPS
(Avoid Wrong Associations)
TO THE BIBLE
Romans 16:17 NASB “Now I urge you, brethren, keep your eye on those who cause dissensions and hindrances contrary to the teaching which you learned, and turn away from them.”
“You don’t need to join that group on that app,” the Spirit said clearly to Eric, as he prayed, “the information shared there will upset your spirit.”
“Thank you Lord, I won’t join them.”
Amongst the young people today, there’s a fear of missing out on information shared. As a Christian, it’s so important that you learn to avoid wrong associations. Keep away from people that try to corrupt your spirit with negativism, because it’s poisonous to your spirit. The Bible says, “…Evil company corrupts good habits” (1 Corinthians 15:33). Oftentimes, your association could determine whether you’ll be productive or unproductive. You’d consciously have to put away those things or people causing you distractions to make much progress in life.
If you keep company with social groups of murmurers and complainers, you’re going to be where they are. So, don’t “sit where they sit”; be different. Be positive and excited about life. There’re different ways Satan can come into people’s lives to mess things up; he can come through distractions, wrong influences, or wrong associations. It’s therefore important that you protect your spirit from corrupt influences.
Avoid people who peddle rumours, bad news, and only see the negative side of everything. When you separate yourself from distractions, you’re more focused and your fellowship with the Holy Spirit will be enriched. It’s like “refining gold”: removing the leftover impurities after the smelting process so as to unveil the beauty of the pure gold. As you identify and eliminate the sources of distractions in your life, not only does it benefit you, you become a source of inspiration to others.
1 Corinthians 5:11; 1 Corinthians 15:33-34; Proverbs 14:7 NIV
Dear heavenly Father, thank you for the correction and guidance I receive from your Word. By the help of your Spirit, I identify any association that could impede my growth in the things of the Spirit, and I thank you for granting me the courage and confidence to eliminate them, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
