In order to embrace the destiny God has in store for your life, you have to be willing to make some changes in the way you live. You will need to examine where you are and what changes you will need to move forward. This may mean you need to change some of the friends that you have been hanging out with. Maybe they were fine for a season in your life, but you've grown in your walk but they still choose to live with worldly values. In order for you to rise higher, you have to break away from relationships that are limiting you. You have to develop some new friendships with people who are going to pull you up and inspire you to rise higher.
Look for people that you can look up to, people who will challenge your abilities and stretch you to the next level and become everything God's created you to be. He who walks with the wise becomes wise. Choose your friends wisely so that you can walk and live in the destiny God has in store for you as you continue the good fight of faith. Remember, it’s called a fight for a reason. However we fight from victory not for victory. Keep on fighting!
