God brings you into relationships to help you, train you, strengthen you, correct you and make us better. The devil limits people by bringing wrong relationships into their lives. The quality of the relationships behind you will determine your outcome in the battles of life. You need both spiritual and physical relationships.
1. Spiritual relationships: Your relationship with God should be the root that sustains your existence as a Christian. It should be vibrant, progressive, consistent and growing continuously. God controls the spiritual in our favour, and He is committed to us because we are His children. Another spiritual relationship you need is that of a spiritual father or mentor. Mentorship is a contact sport and it is impossible to say someone is your mentor who doesn’t know you. Your mentor should be able to rebuke you when you err.
2. Physical Relationships: God brings critical relationships into our lives to help us achieve His purpose for us. You must recognize and cherish those relationships. If you recognize the relationships God brings into your life and disallow negative relationship that the devil brings, you won’t find it difficult to accomplish God’s purpose over your life. Beware of the people that come into your life in your low moments and when your guards are down because they may be the devil’s inroad in to your life.
PRAYER: Lord, expose every wrong relationship I’m involved in. I receive the wisdom to dissociate from them. I open up to the relationships You ordained for my glory in Jesus’ name. Amen.
