You are headed in the same direction of the those you associate with. Don’t allow the people in your environment to keep you from being who God says you are and what He said you can possess. Who are you walking with?
“He who walks with wise men will be wise, But the companion of fools will be destroyed.”Proverbs 13:20 NKJV
God’s Word provides guidance. His Word also gives strategies for success. Be a young person that values the Word and practices it daily. Read it. Listen to your pastor’s messages. Apply it. Stay in the light.
The entrance of Your words gives light; It gives understanding to the simple.” Psalms 119:130 NKJV
“Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.” I Timothy 2:1-2 NKJV
