"Get rid of the old “yeast” by removing the wicked from among you, Then you will be like a fresh batch of dough made of yeast, which is what you really are. Christ, our Passover Lamb, has sacrificed for us. So let us celebrate the festival, not with the old bread of wickedness and evil, but with the new bread of sincerity and truth. "(1 Corinthians 5:7-8)
‘𝙔𝙤𝙪 𝙘𝙖𝙣’𝙩 𝙗𝙚 𝙬𝙝𝙤 𝙂𝙤𝙙 𝙘𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙚𝙙 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙩𝙤 𝙗𝙚 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙡𝙡 𝙠𝙚𝙚𝙥 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙨𝙖𝙢𝙚 𝙛𝙧𝙞𝙚𝙣𝙙𝙨 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙝𝙖𝙗𝙞𝙩𝙨. 𝙀𝙡𝙚𝙫𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙧𝙚𝙦𝙪𝙞𝙧𝙚𝙨 𝙚𝙫𝙖𝙡𝙪𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙨𝙚𝙥𝙖𝙧𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣.’
To detoxify is the process of removing harmful chemicals from something. Because our environment contributes to who we are and what we become, it is imperative that we watch the kind of people that stay around us, what we hear repeatedly and control the way these things impact on us. And where we can't control them, it's important that we not only separate ourselves from them, but also purge ourselves of them.
If your vision of the future has become blurred, sometimes, it is because of the association you keep- you might need to separate and detoxify! There is nothing that clogs and cuts off a person’s vision like being pulled in the wrong direction by people who are not sure where they are going. How is it possible to see the right landmarks on the wrong path? How is it possible to see the right things on the wrong path? If you are not seeing anymore, just like a driver on a wrong road, it may just be about time to make a U-Turn! Don't lose your sense of direction, purpose and vision following or walking with or waiting for people who have none!
Someone said you cannot separate a fool from their foolishness, you have to separate yourself from that fool. Child of God, you have only one life to live, this one is not a rehearsal. Separate yourself from anyone who is pulling you in the wrong direction. Evil communication corrupts good manners. Some people were doing well on their own until some other people got into their lives. Some people had good habits which have died a slow death because the people around them do not have the same value system. You will gradually unlearn all your good habits and inculcate bad ones. The future is bleak for the unequally yoked because all your energy goes in the wrong direction- trying to convince and convert, instead just running in the right direction. Not only is your speed then reduced, you will eventually get grounded and beyond that start retrogressing. Remember it is easier to pull a person down from a table than to pull a person up to it.
Someone said, ‘Drama does not just walk into your life. It is either you create it, invite it, or associate with people who love to bring it into your life.’ If you keep associating with people who have no vision for their lives, soon you will lose yours. If you keep associating with people with no dignity and no value for honor and integrity, soon you will lose yours. If you keep associating with people who do not respect themselves, soon, people will start losing respect for you, after all, birds of the same feather flock together. Remember that two cannot walk together except they be agreed. (Amos 3:3)

𝗙𝗨𝗥𝗧𝗛𝗘𝗥 𝗥𝗘𝗔𝗗𝗜𝗡𝗚: 2 Corinthians 6:17
𝗤𝗨𝗢𝗧𝗘: ‘You can’t be who God called you to be and still keep the same friends and habits. Elevation requires evaluation and separation.’
𝗣𝗜𝗘𝗖𝗘 𝗧𝗢 𝗣𝗢𝗡𝗗𝗘𝗥: Don't lose your sense of direction, purpose and vision following or walking with people who have none!
𝗣𝗘𝗥𝗦𝗢𝗡𝗔𝗟 𝗣𝗥𝗔𝗖𝗧𝗜𝗖𝗘: Evaluate your relationships. The devil can use anyone to derail you. Purge and separate yourself from every association that diminishes your vision and purpose, reduces your ability to connect with God and diminishes your self-worth or respect. If you are beginning to have doubts about yourself, the things God said to you, or even struggling to do the right things you used to do, look around you, locate the cause, and nip it in the bud. Take responsibility for your own lif, separate from them, and purge yourself. Purpose is waiting!
𝗣𝗥𝗔𝗬𝗘𝗥: Father I thank You for Your Word to me today. I ask that You grant me the courage to separate myself from the people and things that hinder me from becoming all that you created me to be. Help me Lord to have the grace to say no to them and yes to you. Today, I chose to severe the relationships that are derailing me that the seed of greatness you have sown in me is not destroyed by wrong company and decisions in Jesus name!
𝗕𝗜𝗕𝗟𝗘 𝗥𝗘𝗔𝗗𝗜𝗡𝗚: Isaiah 27-28; Ephesians 5
