Matthew 10:34-35 (MSG); Don’t think I’ve come to make life cozy. I’ve come to cut– make a sharp knife-cut between son and father, daughter and mother, bride and mother-in-law–cut through these cozy domestic arrangements and free you for God.
When God consecrates a man, He will specifically deal with his associations. The Lord knows that the people around you determine a number of things about how you grow and relate with Him.
In the life of the gospel, I have seen people cling to relationships that God is attempting to separate them from because they are destructive to their destinies.
In 2 Corinthians 6:14, the Bible says, “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?”
This scripture is often looked at in the context of marriage to unbelievers. But there is more to it than that.
There are people in your life with whom you may be in the same book but different chapters; you may be in the same chapter but different pages or, you may even be in the same library but in different books. Sometimes elevation will mean separation from those with whom you share similarities yet to God, your paths are too different.
If you no longer have the desire to hang out in the places that your friends used to hang out, you must pay attention to that fact, it may be that God is separating you from those associations.

GOLDEN NUGGET: When God consecrates a man, He will specifically deal with his associations. Sometimes elevation will mean separation from those with whom you share similarities yet to God, your paths are too different.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. Thank You for the wisdom to know who is in my life for only a season and who I must let go of. I will never let my relationships stand in the way of my God-given destiny. I yield to Your leading and instruction even as You elevate me in the call that You have for my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
