You may know a lot of people and have many acquaintances, but you have to be careful who you let into your inner circle. Some people are toxic and unfortunately, they have no idea that they are. With such people around you, you can’t be short of harm, disaster, betrayal and setbacks. The higher you go and the more successful you are, the higher your circle needs to become.
If you’ve lost a couple of friends in your life then it means you are growing. That doesn’t mean you have to get rid of your friends just because you want to grow. You may have twenty people you call friends, and that’s great. But make sure the two or three you choose to be close to you are 100 per cent for you.
Make sure they believe in you, stick up for you, and are with you through thick and thin. It could be that you’re not seeing Gods best because your team is weak. If your team is weak, you’re going to be weak. Stop investing valuable time in people who were never supposed to be a part of your inner circle.
Never let people in your life, who wouldn’t inspire you. Always let the ones in that will inspire. In Mark 5, Jesus was travelling to another city to pray for a little girl who had died. When he arrived at the home, the scriptures state that Jesus didn’t allow anyone to go in with Him except for Peter, James, and John. His inner circle.
Why? You may ask? Because Jesus knew when he got in that room where the little girl was lying dead, He needed people who wouldn’t question who he was or why he did what he did. He needed people who wouldn’t ask; “Are you sure of what you’re doing?”, ” Is that even possible?”, “What if she doesn’t get healed?”, ” Do you even have a backup plan?”
The truth is when you’re in the heat off the battle when you need Gods favour, when you need a breakthrough, when you need a legal situation to turn around, you just can’t afford to be around people who would be asking you; “Do you think you can ever get out of that debt?”, ” Are you sure you would win the case? My friend lost his and died.
You need people who will say, “If you’re bold enough to believe it, count me in”, ” If you’re going, then I’m going with you”. You need people who will join faith with you and not try to talk you out what’s in your heart.
Jesus knew the importance of having people around him who understood his destiny. His attitude was, I don’t need your doubt. I don’t need you telling me what I cant do and can do. I’m going to surround myself with people of like mind, with people of faith, with people who understand my assignment.
If you have close people to you who are constantly pulling you down, telling you-you’re not good enough, telling you what you can do and can’t do and how you’ll never accomplish your dreams, then its time you show them the door. It’s difficult I know but I need you to have the attitude, I cannot fulfil my destiny with your critical spirit in my life. I can’t become who I was created to be with you dragging me down. I love you, but I can’t allow you in my inner circle!
David, this one is for you. You’re loved just the way you are. #youre perfectly imperfect.
Peace and Blessing
