Abandon any abusive relationship. There are four types of people in your life; those who add to you, those who take from you, those who divide and those who multiply. Those who don't add to you will inevitably take away from you. It is the responsibilty of other to discern your value. Access is a gift that should be earned.
Define the try contribution of each friendship that you have. Each person in your life is a current; it takes you to your goals o it sets you apart from them. Don't expect a friendship of 8X12 to grow to the measurement of your dream for 40X50. The value of any friendship can be measured by its contribution to the assignation that God prescribed for your life. Those who cannot make you grow will (innebitably) make you shrink.
1 Corinthians 15:33 - Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.”
Psalm 55:13 - But it is you, a man like myself, my companion, my close friend.
God's word cannot fail. We are the ones that impede the word from being effective. The word of God can be ineffective for four reasons:
When it is not remembered
When one does not serve God
When one does not pray
When one turns his/her back to God
Romans 9:6 - It is not as though God’s word had failed. For not all who are descended from Israel are Israel.
“Praise be to the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle.” Psalm 144:1 (NIV).
