Find Friends Who Hear God

Iron sharpens iron; so a man  sharpens the countenance of his friend. —Proverbs 27:17

If we listen, God will speak to us  about our relationships—our marriages, friendships, business associations, and  even casual acquaintances. He may ask us to sever friendships or relationships  with people who can tempt us to stray from His plan for our lives. We can  easily become like those we spend time with. If we spend time with people who  are selfish and self-centered, we may soon find ourselves often focused on  ourselves, thinking about what we can do or get for ourselves. In contrast, God  may encourage us to make friends with someone who is a giver. If we spend time  with such a person, before long, we will be givers, too.

It is enjoyable and beneficial to  spend time with someone who really hears from God, someone who truly senses  what the Holy Spirit is saying and doing. It is not fun to spend time with  people who are dull in their spiritual hearing, and we can tell when we are  with someone like that. The verse for today says that “iron sharpens iron,” and  we can sharpen our ability to hear the right things by being with people who practice  listening for God’s voice and obeying Him.

God’s word for you today: We  become the company we keep; make “iron” choices.
