Loving Your Lover Without Unloving God


Ade and Sandra are so much in love. They were both God loving but something changed the moment they began a relationship. Their relationship with God plummeted. Their prayer life suffered. Bible studies gave way to endless chatting and love poem compositions.
 
Where is the balance? What are the issues?
 
Love! That word is simply powerful. Man can go to any extent because of that word. But what we fail to understand most times is that God Himself is actually love!
 
Now there is something we need to get here. The success of a marriage or the success of a transition from friendship to courtship and then to marriage, all has some spiritual connections to it.
 
Your toasting skill alone will not sustain a relationship. There are things you are going to confront and fight that do not recognise mere romantic rhetorics.
 
Your ability to trip her and take her to Dubai every weekend and take each other all around the world, do not arrest the enemy of your soul.
 
Hear this word:
"Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain." (Psa 127:1, KJV)
 
That word house also means family. Except the Lord builds a family, all the labours of outings, toasting, shopping, all the emotional energy expended, all the times and more are all in vain, wasted, and gone into oblivion.
 
In other words, your love equation without God becomes an unsolvable equation.
 
The next question then “How do you make sure God is the builder of your relationship, marriage or family?
 
They are so simple. Here are some tips.
1. Make sure you put God first place in everything you are going to do. Never ever relegate Him because of some love affair. For example, you use to wake up by 5.00am to pray and worship God, but since you fell in love, prayer time has suffered because of free night calls and chatting with your lover. If you take notice, you will always be quarrelling because something vital is not in place!
 
2. Never allow a relationship or courtship to draw you away for God When you do that, the relationship will not work out fine. That is what the scripture is says.
 
3. Do not get involved with someone who doesn't love God. Do not get involved with someone whose spiritual life you cannot vouch for. Anybody that will snuff our the fire of God in you is not appropriate for you. Don’t even think you can change anybody: when you have not been able to change yourself!
 
4. Aside from the salvation experience, ask some other questions. Who are his or her pastors/mentors? Who are his or her friends?
 
5. What are people around you saying about the relationship? Friends, pastors, respected authority figures and so on?
 
May God grant us more understanding.

I have God's wisdom
 
PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Lord, teach me to put you first place in my life in Jesus name
