When I heard your greeting, the baby in my womb jumped for joy. Luke 1:44
Mary had gone to visit Elizabeth days after she had received the news from the angel that she would conceive. A child that would be the son of God and that His kingdom would be like no other. Elizabeth was in her old age and had also become pregnant. The story further says that the people had signaled Elizabeth as barren and in that time that was seen as a punishment from God. At her arrival, Mary greeted Elizabeth, and at the sound of Mary’s voice, Elizabeth’s baby jumped in her womb and she was filled with the Holy Spirit. A greeting like no other. A memorable moment, an amazing story!
We all need people like this in our life. You need to be surrounded with people that will reinforce your most inner dreams. When your dreams are fading and when they seem to be silent, forgotten, distant or even impossible, you need people that will speak to the core of what has been conceived in you and make it jump, move and become alive. Your need people that at the sound of their voice, life and hope and new beginnings are stirred up within you. People that have in them the promise themselves and will build yours even with their greeting. People that celebrate your successes. People that have an empire mindset and will get in accord with you to pray with, to sustain you and to rejoice with you. People that speak the word of the living God to your spirit. The only word that can bring alive anything that is dead, even barren wombs that have rejected by society. The word of the Almighty God. The word of the same God that planted in your spirit that dream that promise for which you have been waiting and will bring forth in unexpected ways.
Who do you surround yourself with? Stay away from those that don’t speak life to you. Those that will talk you down or talk you out of your dream. That dream has been conceived right from God’s heart, so get rid of those naysayers. You need to have people that will stir up what is growing inside of you. People that when you talk to them will inspire and impulse you to your purpose. These are the people that will stir up all of that is being formed in your spirit and will change your destiny.
Choose well who talks into your life. If your spirit stirs up, if your face turns to God, if what you hear makes you want to be closer to the Creator, it’s a good voice. A voice that will draw attention to the One, not to the voice itself.
“Because the people that you listen to, are a preview of the future you.” – Jeff Henderson
