To be covered by your Maker and walk in the area of your destiny you can’t be limited to just working with people who look like you. Watch out for the character. There are 3 basic types of people that you will interact with if you are a destined child.
The first group are your CONFIDANTS
You will have very few of them. These are those people in your life who love you unconditionally; they are are into you whether you are up or down, right or wrong. They are in for the long haul. You can open up and share any thing with them. You will never inherit your kingdom until you find your confidant. Having a good confidant is the key that unlocks the kingdom. “You can’t be David until you find your Jonathan“. You got to have people behind the wall who can mentor you for the next level in your life; people who can feed you so you can feed somebody else, so that you will not be drained by the people under you. Confidants are intimately intertwined in your life and they are there to make sure that you reach your destiny. They will confront you and tell you when you are wrong. If you have two or three of them in your lifetime, you are a blessed person. You need to find your confidant.
The other group are your CONSTITUENTS
They are not into you; they are into what you are for. They are for what you are for and as long as you are for what they are for, they will walk with you and work with you and labor with you but never think they are for you. And you have to know that because if they meet somebody else that will further their agenda, they will leave you and hook up with them because they were never for you. Throughout your life if you are not careful particularly if you’re broken, you will mistake your constituents for your confidants and you will think that they are for you when they are really not for you; they are just for what you are for.
The third group are your COMRADES
These people are not for you nor are they for what you are for – it is just that they are against what you are against. The comrades will make strange bedfellows so this will cause people to come together who (are not for you and they are not for what you are for but they) are against what you are against. They will team up with you to help fight a greater enemy but don’t be confused by their associations; they will only be with you until the victory is accomplished. These people are like scaffolding – they come into your life to fulfill a purpose and when the purpose is complete the scaffolding is removed; but don’t be upset when they are removed because the building always remains when the scaffolding is removed.
What I am saying to you my brothers and sisters, expect the constituents and the comrades to leave you and desert you after a while. Don’t be upset when they don’t react to your dream the way you expected them to because they were never really with you in the first place. Be careful then who you tell your dream to because if you tell your dream to your constituents, they will desert you and try to fulfill the dream without you. If you tell it to your comrades, they won’t support it because they never were for you anyway
If you find a few people in your life with whom you can share your dream with then count yourself blessed somebody
