Before preparing for elevation, there are a number of things which happens in an airplane. One of those things is the process of loading the airplane with passengers.

Consider an airplane bounded for England from Barbados. There is no way that the airplane would load passengers going to St. Lucia, Trinidad or any of the islands close to Barbados. As a matter of a fact, only passengers whose destination is England, would be loaded on to the airplane.

In our last post we mentioned that you are the airplane and in this case, in order to prepare for elevation, you will  need to make a decision to load the right passengers on to your airplane.

Here’s the truth: there are some people around you right now who are not headed to the same destination that you are headed to. They are on the wrong aircraft; they are basically not headed in the same direction as you. You have been recognizing that their view of life and the future, does not line up with the will of God for your life, nor the will of God in general.  Not to mention the loaded luggage that they bring with them.

If these people are on your airplane, it is time for them to get off and the appointed time for you the load the right passengers on to your plane/into your life. It is time to put off the weight of the luggage which they have brought along with them as well because it has only caused you to be stressed out and weighed down over time.

The right passengers are those who are God-sent and will add to your spiritual walk. These are people who sent by God for you to add to or bless their lives and vice versa.

Consider if an airplane is overloaded with passengers. Chances are it may be difficult for the airplane to be elevated or may put the airplane at risk of crashing. As the airplane you have become weighed down by these persons and their luggage. God is telling you: Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.” (1 Corinthians 15:33) It is time to get them off your airplane so that your plane can be lightened for the elevation.

In a nutshell, if you are to be elevated in 2017 into your divine purpose, you will have to make a serious effort to  entertain the right people in your life, who would not only push you more towards destiny, but who have the same godly mindset as you.

God has been leading you to remove some persons from your space and now is the time to respond to His command as you prepare for your take off in 2017.


Father in the name of Jesus give me the courage and strength to respond to your call to load my airplane with the right passengers. Give me wisdom, knowledge, understanding and discernment to let the right people into my life and remove those who are hindering my progress towards my destination of purpose. I pray for divine connections with persons who would push me toward destiny and would welcome your work in me to push them towards their destiny. Father I  thank you for hearing and answering my prayer, in Jesus’ mighty name. AMEN!
