Another key is to break away from wrong association. Psa. 1:1-3. God is interested in the kind of people you keep company with. King Jehoshaphat almost lost his life because of wrong partnership with King Ahab. Be careful of the people you tag along with. God wants you to be comprehensively fruitful in every aspect of your life including the decisions you take. A productive life does not come by chance. The instructions you follow determine the future you create. There is no better instruction than the one from the Creator; the manufacturer’s manual from God.
The beauty of the word of God is that it does not change. It is forever relevant. It never diminishes in value. The greatest knowledge you can have is the knowledge of God. The greatest success factor in life is the God factor. If you miss it, you will struggle. Unbelievers understand this principle a lot, they don’t go to the market place empty handed, they go out armed with their idols.
The Bible says in Dan. 11:32A, “And such as do wickedly with the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries.” Daniel saw the antichrist in his days. That is the advantage of having wisdom; you will see what others cannot see. You will see through the tunnel of the future with the eye of the One who created the universe. Everyone is interested in doing exploits but what is your relationship with the word of God? Labour in word and be free from the world. When you labour in the word, you will have dominion over the world. You can never dominate the one you are one with. In order to dominate, you must come from above. We are connected to the most high, that is why we operate in the highest.
The anointing for comprehensive fruitfulness flows from serving God. Exo.23:25-26, “And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee. There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the number of thy days I will fulfil.” Fruitfulness is a divine promise for those who serve God. If you serve God acceptably, you connect to the anointing of comprehensive fruitfulness; God himself takes over to ensure that you are not barren. The way to terminate barrenness is to be abundantly fruitful; just as the way to terminate lack is to have abundance.
- Heavenly Father I worship and adore you. I thank you for giving us your word as a compass in this world. Grant me the grace to align my will to your revealed will in every facet of my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.
