Topic: The Right Environment For Destiny Fulfilment – from Seed of Destiny Devotional by Dr. Pastor Paul Enenche | Date: Saturday, 05 May 2018.
SCRIPTURE: Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.1 Corinthians 15:33
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Correct character can be corrupted by bad association.
Environment is a major determinant of the growth of every living thing, be it plant or animal, man or beast. The right environment, therefore, is a prerequisite for a favourable outcome of life.
God has made it clear to us in His Word that a person’s environment affects his attainment in life; the world we live in affects the life that we live (1 Corinthians 15:33). This means, the input you receive into your life from your environment affects the output of your life.
One major aspect of your environment is the people you associate with, the friends you keep, the people you give your ears to. You know, what your eyes see affect how far you can go in life.
Some time ago, I heard a story of a goat that grew among dogs. Suddenly, this goat began to behave like dogs. The goat would run out to welcome its owner wagging its tail exactly the way dogs do because it grew up in the midst of dogs. The goat also began to eat faeces like dogs. What happened? The environment it lived in corrupted its destiny.
Beloved, the lesson from this is; association affects behaviour. Disconnect from friends who hinder you from fulfilling your destiny. Your environment affects your attainment.
My counsel is, change your environment or association now if it is a hindrance to your destiny.
Remember this: Correct character can be corrupted by bad association.
1. Disconnect from every association, environment or job that will limit your destiny.
2. Company with the right association for destiny fulfilment.
PRAYER: O Lord, I ask for the grace to disconnect from any wrong association, environment or job that can limit my destiny. Connect me to the right association and environment for destiny fulfilment, Lord in Jesus’ Name.

AMAZING FACT: You see with your brain, not your eyes. Our eyes function like a camera, capturing light and sending data back to the brain.
