NEGATIVE ALLIANCES

19th August 2023

Scripture Reading: 1 KINGS 3: 16-28

Focus

“And the one woman said, O my lord, I and this woman dwell in one house; and I was delivered of a child with her in the house.” (1 Kings 3: 17)

In our Focal Scripture, one of the harlots who came to Solomon, spoke of how she dwelled in the same house with the other woman who was also a harlot. It was bad enough that they were harlots, but they took it a step further by living together. They had negative personalities, and they compounded same by staying together. They created a community of negativity. They created an environment of error around them.

Friend, don’t make the mistake of creating a community of negativity around you. Don’t make the mistake of increasing the number of people in your inner circle who are messengers of unrighteousness. Don’t make the mistake of tagging along with people who are famous for their sinful living. Don’t attach yourself to people who are comfortable in their errors. Don’t create a community of those with negative struggles.

The two harlots lived together, and it was not long before one of them lost her son. They multiplied negativity, and death came calling. The more you multiply negativity and wrong relationships around you, the more you attract negativity to yourself and yours. The more you create an atmosphere that is conducive for sin and negativity to thrive, the more you are opening your doors to demonic agents and their satanic powers.

Today, break away from every negative alliance you are a part of. Break away from every community that drags you into sin and error. Break away from every negative pattern that the enemy wants to pull you into. Break away from the company of those who want to align with you to commit sin and unrighteousness. Walk away from those who want you to remain in wrongdoing. Walk away from the company of the stiff-necked.

The negative struggles you have dealt with, should not make you increase the atmosphere of negativity around you. Break away from the cycle of negativity. Break away from every community of wrongdoers.

Declaration

I break away from every community of negativity, in Jesus’ name!
