Apostle Grace Lubega
Genesis 30:27 (KJV); And Laban said unto him, I pray thee, if I have found favour in thine eyes, tarry: for I have learned by experience that the LORD hath blessed me for thy sake
Sometimes, the people God uses in the place of association may be at a lower station in life than yourself.
Take the example of Laban. He enjoyed the blessings of increase and multiplication in material wealth because of Jacob who was his servant.
He had the wisdom to recognise the fact that these blessings were by reason of his association with Jacob.
It means that it is possible for God to elevate, bless and increase you through a subordinate.
Some people, because of pride, miss these blessings because they are convinced that no one below them has anything useful to add to their lives.
That is not a way to live.
In the arena of association, anyone can be used by God to propel you to your next level.
Humility should teach you to have respect for all men, from the lowliest to the highest. Your gardener, househelp or supervisee may be your next door of opportunity.

GOLDEN NUGGET: In the arena of association, anyone can be used by God to propel you to your next level. Humility should teach you to have respect for all men, from the lowliest to the highest.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for the anointing of association. Thank you because wisdom works in me; that I can never be foolish in the presence of greatness; that I have the humility to know what to do in my hour of elevation; that I know who to turn to regardless of who they are; to the glory of Your name, Amen.
