Read Today’s Inspirational: The Israelites were in slavery for 430 years. They were mistreated, forced to work long hours with no breaks, given quotas that were impossible to meet. It looked like that was their destiny. After all those years, I’m sure they had accepted it, thought that God had forgotten about them. Generation after generation of heartache, struggle, lack. But God is not going to let people continually mistreat you, continually take advantage of you. He said in Exodus, “I have seen the affliction of my people, I have heard their cries, I am coming down to deliver them.” God was saying, “Enough is enough. It’s payback time. I’m ready to settle this account.”
Today’s Scripture: Proverbs 13:20, MSG
Become wise by walking with the wise; hang out with fools and watch your life fall to pieces.
Today’s Joel Osteen Devotional Topic: People Rub Off
Who are the people that you have in your life? Are you giving your time and energy to putting out someone else’s fires, trying to keep somebody happy, yet feeling guilty if you don’t meet their every demand and need? That’s going to wear you out. You can’t reach your destiny with people who are constantly dragging you down. If you spend your time with gossips, peace stealers, or negative people, you’ll become like them. It’s time to make a change. Put up some boundaries and spend less time with them.
You need to find people who feed you and not just need you. Especially in your inner circle of closest friends, you shouldn’t have alarmists who are always having a crisis or people who always want you to keep them happy. Your close friends need to be stable, wise, happy, responsible people who push you forward. Like iron sharpening iron, you make each other better. If you don’t get the wrong people out of your life, you’ll never meet the right ones.
A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You for the people in my life who sharpen me, inspire me, and push me forward. Help me to know the friendships I need to distance myself from and the friendships and other relationships I need to develop. I want to walk with the right people. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
