TOPIC: HOW TO TAP INTO THE TREASURES IN MAN
Scripture: Proverbs 13: 20. He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.
Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! Previously, we established that there are treasures in man, the most important entity amongst God’s creation.
We went further to establish that one way of tapping into the treasures in man is by receiving them as gift! We shall yet consider another way of tapping the treasures in man.
Our anchor scripture vividly points out that if you have association with a wise man, even though you are not wise at the starting point of the association, but eventually, you must turn out to be wise(Prov.13;30). Hmmm!
The implications of this is that, whatever treasures a man has can be accessed by your association with that man! It is not only wisdom that can be accessed, you can access success, riches and honour etc.
What is association?
According to Merriam Webster dictionary; association is a connection or relationship between things or people
Another word for association is partnership, union, relationship, affiliation, linkages etc. This is to say if you are in association with anyone, then you are both in relationship!
What are the implications of being in relationship?
1. Your success or failure in life to a large extent is determined by whom you associate with. For example, Lot associated with Abraham when the Bible said:
Genesis 12: 4. So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.
It wasn’t long, the results of associating with Abraham was obvious:
Genesis 13: 5. And Lot also, which went with Abram, had flocks, and herds, and tents.
Beloved you cannot associate with a blessed man and not be blessed! Some believers are suffering today because of whom they associated with! Whether it is business association, marital association, or just being friends, has either positive or negative implications.
Another example is the account of Jonah and those traveling with him. It was the moment Jonah boarded the ship that problem ensue:
Jonah 1: 4. But the LORD sent out a great wind into the sea, and there was a mighty tempest in the sea, so that the ship was like to be broken.
Beloved could it be that all the problem that came upon you is as a result of whom you are associating with? Check it out, since you have been in relationship with that individual, has your life improved?
Can you say your meeting with A,B,C brought upgrade to your business or you are currently experiencing losses? This is a Clarion call for soul searching on the matter of relationships or association!
This is to ensure you re-edit the relationships of your life. Relationships are for advantageous purpose. Every relationship will either multiply your life or divide it. Relationships will either add up your life or subtract it.
That means there are people that will enter into your life and you will be begin to experience subtraction like the case of Jonah, every body on board the ship Jonah boarded experienced losses because Jonah came with an atmosphere that made for losses.
Some persons have died by traveling with Jonah! Some businesses have died because they hired someone like Jonah.
Beloved, who is that Jonah in your life currently? I prophesy permanent separation between you and that person that is the Jonah of your life in the name of Jesus.
Yesterday, I did share that God sends men so also does Satan send men. I decree and declare whoever is sent by the devil into your life currently just to steal, kill and destroy your destiny is permanently separated from you in the name of Jesus.
Remember this : Heaven is real and hell is real! The destination of every unsaved souls is hell, don’t be part of the statistics. Give your heart to Jesus today.
– Father thank you for your word to me today
– Father, separate me from every wrong relationships in the name of Jesus.
I prophesy that individuals that you need to fulfill destiny manifest now in the name of Jesus.
From your brother Alex
God bless you.
