We often see a break up in relationships as something negative.
Well, not always.
Sometimes, God Himself is supervising the break up.
God does not only order your steps, He also orders your stops!
The path of the righteous shineth brighter…
It may not necessarily be a forward step every time, sometimes for there to be advancement, there has to be a backward step!
Especially when you have entered into terrains where believers are not supposed to be found.
You will need to retrace your steps.
Joseph landed in the pit. It looked like it was a negative event. But bind all he wanted to, he would end up being sold as a slave.
From a choice son, the one with coat of many colours to becoming a slave, with a coat of no colour or even no coat at all!
But that was an advancement into his destiny.
So I said all of that to let you know that some break up could be answer to God’s direction.
When should you ever consider breaking up?
There are many reasons, but I will just mention one that is very important this morning.
When There Is No Leading And No Peace
By far, this is the most important.
You have to have the leading of the Holy Spirit.
That is why you need to get filled with the Holy Ghost!
Pastor, are you for real? Get filled with the Holy Ghost in order to find a spouse?
Yes, I am for real. And Jesus is even more real when he said:
John 14:16-17 (MSG)
I will talk to the Father, and he’ll provide you another Friend so that you will always have someone with you.  This Friend is the Spirit of Truth. The godless world can’t take him in because it doesn’t have eyes to see him, doesn’t know what to look for. But you know him already because he has been staying with you, and will even be in you!
The Holy Spirit is not just some tongues, No!
He is a friend, who wants to lead you into God’s plan for your life!
You cannot just marry anybody!
The complications, complexities, troubles and pressures that come with marriage requires that you marry someone you love and someone meant for you in God!
Forget about the flowers and the poems!
Marriage is spelt p-r-e-s-s-u-r-e!
And you not only need to be with the right person, you need an assurance from God that you are with the right person!
Combining the pressures of marriage with the pressures that come with the feeling that you are married to the wrong spouse is enough to kill anybody!
You want to get married and have some peace, not High Blood pressure!
You want to get married to a prayer partner, not a prayer point!
Now when that leading is not there, when that peace is elusive, if you go ahead, you are on your own!
John 14:27 (KJV)
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
Leading. Peace. Those two are so important!
Don’t just follow emotions, follow leading.
Now that peace, that leading can be identified when there is a vital relationship with God, with His word and with the Holy Spirit.
So, is there peace?
If you cannot find pace, run for your life!
The absence of peace, that scratchy feeling that something is wrong, is God’s way of telling you that He is not part of the love story you are trying to script for yourself.
And believe me, any love story scripted without God ends up as horror movie!
If you ignore Him and go ahead, trouble looms ahead!
Romans 8:8 (MSG)
And God isn’t pleased at being ignored.
Not a good idea to ignore God.
I will stop here this morning!
I pray you will hear God loud and clear.
You will distinguish His voice from wrong voices.
Your relationship is blessed.
CONFESSION FOR THE DAY:
I have direction
PRAYER FOR THE DAY:
I come against every spirit of confusion in Jesus name.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Romans 8:9 (MSG) But if God himself has taken up residence in your life, you can hardly be thinking more of yourself than of him. Anyone, of course, who has not welcomed this invisible but clearly present God, the Spirit of Christ, won’t know what we’re talking about.
ACTION PLAN OF THE DAY:
Check your heart and check again by praying in the Holy Ghost
