Make use of this piece….

IT IS BETTER TO BE ALONE THAN IN THE WRONG COMPANY

Never receive counsel from unproductive people. Not everyone has a right to speak into your life.

You are certain to get the worst of the bargain when you exchange ideas with the wrong person.

Do not follow anyone who is not going anywhere.Nowadays, there are so many people to follow with the help of social media. The question is, who are you following? Where are they going and where are they taking you to? Do not forget that, every journey has a destination. With some people you spend an evening; with others you invest it.

Be careful where you stop to inquire for directions along the road of life. Wise is the person who fortified his life with the right friendships.

CONSIDER Francesco Guicciardini say : “since there is nothing so well worth having as friends, never lose a chance to make the right ones”.

Choose your associations carefully invest in good relationship.

WHO YOU ARE IN CHRIST

To discover who you are, you must first know your source. In Genesis 1:26, we see that God made man in his image and in his likeness that means we have God’s image and we are like him. Psalm 52:6 says “Ye are gods”.

We are created in His class, Iam a reflection of who God is. He created a dominator, made for dominion. We lost that dominion at the fall of the first Adam but the Second Adam – JESUS came and restored it, in Christ all that God made man to be and have, is restored. You need to get a personal revelation of this. Until the image you have inside translates to the image God has of you, you will not manifest your true self.

You can’t reflect God if you dont see yourself as he sees you. 1peter 2: 9 says

“You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation and God’s special people “.

SAY THESE TO YOURSELF BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT YOU ARE AS A BELIEVER…

I am chosen, I am royal, I am special, I am justified, without condemnation- Romans 8:1, Ephesians 1:11

I am God’s elect – Romans 8:33

I am God’s son – 1John 3:1, Galatians 4: 4-7

I am the child of the living God

I am the righteousness of God in Christ

I am blessed – Deuteronomy 28:1-14

I belong to Christ and Christ in God -1corinthians 2:23

I am tatooed on God’s hands – Isaiah 48:16

I am a King/Queen – Rev 5:10

YOUNG PEOPLE DO NOT SAVE MONEY

From the age of 18 to 29, they do not always see it that necessary to save money. Start saving now. Save for investment and emergency.

THE APPROACH TO THE THRONE OF GRACE IS BOLDNESS

BOLDNESS : the access to the grace

GRACE : your reach beyound your merit.

MERIT : your personal limitation

LIMITATION : The exclusion of God

GOD : He by whom all things are possible.

Let us have confidence, then,and approach God’s throne, where there is grace. There we will receive mercy and find grace to help us just when we need it.” (HEBREWS 4:16)
