YOUR RELATIONSHIP AND YOUR PEACE
Don’t force yourself to be at peace in a relationship where you have lost your peace.
SCRIPTURE: And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Don’t force yourself to be at peace in a relationship where you have lost your peace.
In life, wisdom is needed for successful and profitable relationship. The deployment of wisdom in relationship is key to destiny fulfilment. Many people think that they can relate with just anyone they see and still fulfil destiny, NO! To become who you are meant to be, it is not everyone that can be your friend.
Now, who should be your friend or are you to relate with? Relate with those who give you peace and rest.
Do not force yourself to sustain a relationship in which your peace is lost. Now, one thing is crucial to note for those who are already married: for the married, relationship with one’s spouse is a fixed deposit. Therefore, as a married person, do not say, “My pastor said that if I don’t have peace, I should leave my marriage”. No! You don’t do that if you are married. This only applies to those who are yet to be married. And this is why you should see well before you marry.
Don’t force yourself to be at peace in a relationship where you have lost your peace. Any relationship that is heading towards marriage and there is no peace, quit that relationship. If you neglect the peace factor in your relationship during courtship, you may end up in pieces later. That will not be your portion in Jesus’ Name.
What is my counsel today?
- Never relate carelessly; relate carefully.
Don’t manage a relationship so it does not damage you (1 Corinthians 15:33).
- Love abundantly.
That you are not a friend to someone doesn’t mean you should live in hatred and bitterness towards them. Living in hatred or bitterness is very demanding, so love abundantly (1 Thessalonian 3:12).
Remember this: Don’t force yourself to be at peace in a relationship where you have lost your peace.
- Do not neglect the place of peace in making and maintaining relationships.
- Relate with people who will give you peace of mind.
PRAYER: I ask for the grace to relate with peace-loving people. Help me to be sensitive to the place of peace in keeping and maintaining relationship, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
QUOTE: There are times when you have already concluded on a journey – air or transport fare paid – and all of a sudden, there is no green light; no peace. When you experience that, stop! Obey the Holy Spirit, so that you can stop that devil. Culled from “15 KINGDOM STRATEGIES FOR SURVIVAL” by Dr Paul Enenche.
DAILY READING: Nehemiah 9-11
AMAZING FACT: An elephant uses its trunk to lift food and suck up water, then pour it into its mouth.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: The grace to defend your peace at all times is released for you in Jesus’ Name.
