TFTD: If you want greater-seek GREATER
Matthew 6:33 (NKJV)
33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
I will step out on a limb and suggest we have all heard the following statements:
- “You are the company you keep”
- “Birds of a feather, flock together”
If you want to measure your success, measure the quality and character of the top 10 people in your closet circle. If you hang around a bunch of complainers and whiners than don’t be surprised when people call you the same thing. If you hang around a bunch of people who are under achievers than don’t be shocked that you never reach your full potential. If you hang around a bunch of successful people you will be successful. You will begin taking on the mannerisms, belief systems, and attitudes of the people who are in your closet circle.
So, if you want greater-seek Greater! It’s time to seek God first and make sure He is on the top of our list. When we seek Him first, we won’t have to worry about anything. God will take care of us. God will lead us and direct us. God will provide and sustain us. God will provide the increase when we decrease and allow Him to be God. He has greater for you, but you must surround yourself with a GREAT GOD!!! Then watch Him lead you to great people who will assist you on your journey to greatness!
Take a moment to evaluate your current situation and your future desires. Then look at the people in your closet circle. Is it time to remove some people from your space? Are you hindering your progress because of the company you keep? Is it time to seek Greater?
I encourage you to surround yourself with like-minded people. Seek God first and allow Him to direct your path. Don’t be like the eagle who was raised with the chickens and desired to soar and fly, but never stretched it’s wings out because it looked around and saw all the chickens pecking at the ground. So it continued to mimic the company it kept instead of embracing its destiny.
Spread your wings and fly!!! Have a blessed day!
