Right vs. Wrong Relationships

Right relationships cause you to grow in your relationship with God and propel you to become all God has
predestined you to be.  

Wrong relationships are distractions which take you away from God and have you at the altar repenting every week.

I can remember a time I was dating someone, and I was so emotionally wrapped up, tied up and tangled up in ‘loving me some him’ that I could barely hear from God.  Though we never had sex, each kiss or night of making out (which is still unacceptable and unholy in God’s sight) caused me to be more led by the flesh more so than the Spirit. It got to a point where, as I prayed and asked God about my purpose, as long as I was involved in this relationship, I couldn’t hear anything from the Father concerning my future.

Eventually the Lord asked me to cut it off.  He actually asked me could I cut it off.  I felt so bad because at that time I honestly could not; so I just cried. After praying and repenting seemingly every week about the same thing, I eventually mustered up enough strength and courage from above to end the relationship.

Once I did, I prayed about my purpose again (this was all before I had a clue of what I was called to do) and it was as if the windows of heaven were opened as the Lord shared His heart with me concerning the call, purpose and plan He has for my life.

I said all this to say, don’t allow a wrong relationship to hinder your relationship, or shall I say fellowship with God.  

It’s not worth it.

Your relationship with God should be based on consistent communication with Him; don’t allow sin (which is a separator) to separate that open line of communication you have with the Father.  

Though it may be hard on the flesh, trust me I know because we all have wants, desires and physical needs, but at the end of the day, if what we’re doing brings God glory and not shame, then that means it’s all worth it for He is our reward. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.  Romans 8:38-39
