WHO ARE YOU HANGING AROUND WITH?
Over the next 14 days I am reading from the Psalms of Ascent; Psalm 120 - 134.
These are pilgrim songs sung on the way to the House of God. God is challenging me, to be prepared for the next level.
The key verse in this Psalm is verse 6 "my soul has dwelt too long with one who hates peace."
Mesech and Kedar are typical enemies, who forced their way into the kingdom of Judah and troubled the people of God.
Psalm 1 also instructs God's people to watch who they walk, stand, and sit with, because it has a direct result on the level of their well being and prosperity.
To go to the next level, we need to identify the negative forces that are hindering our progress, and then be willing to separate ourselves from them.
Someone said, "show me your friends and I will show you your future."
