Every relationship must grow if you don’t want to loose it .
Proverbs 18:24 !A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.
If you accepted the Lord Jesus as your Lord and savior ,he is now your friends and you must also show yourself friendly by developing the friendship. Let the relationship grow .
One of the best way to do this is to be closer to him. If any friendship or relationship will grow you need to work it out .
You must desire to know more about him. First by talking to him regularly and read more about him from the word of God. You have his spirit in you the day you submit to him and allow him into your life .. God too
will often speaks to you or give some direction through his spirit that dwell in you .
Whenever you begin to notice or hear some instructions from your spirit like …’why can’t you pray now ‘ or you have not read your bible this morning ‘ or. enough of those words, don’t go with that boy or don’t follow that girl again . etc . God is the one talking to you and he is drawing you closer to himself .
And as you obey him ,you will begin to grow and getting closer to him . The. More you talk to him and pray the more God will talk to you and open you up for divine instruction that will make you grow and strong spiritually .The real man ,your spirit man will begin to grow. Since your Heavenly Father is a spirit,you will hear him and be sensitive to his move in your life because you are ALIFE in him and God will begin to have a say in your life and in your decision making because you are already in a relationship.
As you grow in this friendship with God ,you will become his property and you will see him coming in to reveals his will to you on everything as you commune with him and asking him . Atimes before you embark something that is against his plans for you ,his spirit in you will revolt and you will know somethings are not right until you call on him .Our God is a jelouse God .
He does not joke with whoever belong to him ,and he will not be happy whenever he sees his friends walking against him or disobey him.
When God takes over your life ,then he is charge including your marriage . He determine who you will marry because of what he wants to do through that marriage
He is so much interested in the Union of his friends ,his children because God is looking for a marriage or home that will project him and his interest on earth. Your marriage is not about your self or your interest ,but about God and his interest on earth . Your marriage is to showcase the glory of God the world.that is why he is very much interested in whoever his child marry.
When your marriage stop projecting the interest of God ,such marriage is going down out of God’s will and will soon loose its relevance . That is when such marriage or home is opened to attack.
Your marriage should solidify your relationship with God because that is why he allowed it it because two are better than one . He gave Eve to Adam so they can joined force together and be fruitful and multiply. He desire to show his greatness through them
But when they disobeyed and they stop projecting the interest of God in the union ,they lost their relevancies .
Ask yourself why you want to marry?
Are you sure you are ready. Your purpose of getting married should go beyond having sex partner of for procreation .
When you know your purpose in God you will fully understand why you should marry .
You need to ask God for your purpose ,what he wants you to do for him .The vision or assignment he has for you to accomplish for the expansion of God’s kingdom on earth .
That is what the relationship entails . Everything about you should should project the interest of God including your association ,and whoever you move or walk with .
Christ must be at he center of them all .
