Relational Suicide


Your connections will either feed your soul with wisdom and power or diminish your ability to stand before God blameless. Who you connect yourself with is important to your stance in God. “Come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you (2 Corinthians 6:17).” This means digital relationships as well as those that are physical. Anyone who is speaking in your ear on a continual basis should edify you. Edify, doesn’t mean make you feel good, but be good.

The hardest thing in life is disconnecting unprofitable relationships. Often times, you know the relationship is bogus, but because you are lonely you insist on keeping the vine connected, not realizing your stagnation is connected to this relationship. God did not speak with Abraham, until Lot left. God will not receive you and someone else. He wants a personal relationship with you. If you do not have personal time with God, you do not have a relationship with Him.

Don’t deceive yourself. God will not receive you and your ungodly connections. Of course, if you are married to someone unsaved, this does not mean divorce them, but those outside of the covenant should be evaluated for profitability. Every relationship you have should be profitable. It should encourage you in the Lord and not be a conduit for Satan to tempt you or control you. Your children included. Don’t overstep your boundaries with them and give them proper boundaries with you. Don’t be God in their life. Let God be God and you be the parent. You should take every opportunity to direct them to Jesus for their supply and not you. Prepare them early to become adults and sustain themselves without you.

Relational suicide is staying connected to ungodly people. Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God (James 4:4). Don’t let your connections destroy you. Solomon allowed the women he connected himself with to serve other gods. He received wisdom directly from God himself, but refused to disconnect himself and I believe he is in hell because we find no repentance after God’s warning and his name is absent from the men of faith list in Hebrews 11. Be careful. Many are called, but few are chosen.

Watch your relationships (internet included) closely.
