God, Please Stay Out of My Love Life!

Most of us have at least failed once in our love lives: dating the wrong guy, being abused in a relationship, carrying a child for an unready father, etc. Let’s admit it ladies, we go to church, attend small groups, fellowship with our brothers and sisters in the Lord, watch all of Joyce Meyer sermons, yet when it comes to relationships, we usually go by our own instincts. Whether or not we agree, our past romantic failures came from our ignorance or negligence of God. Most of us ended up in a bad relationship either driven by lust, pressure, or deception. Then, when it didn’t work out, we blamed ourselves, God, family, friends, men, or life for being so unfair to us. Ladies, it’s time we break out of this cycle of romantic pain and failures and do it God’s way.
If we trust God with the little things in our lives, why not trust Him with the big things such as our relationships? Yes, we can argue that God takes time to provide us with our future husbands or may test our faith by giving us a man far from our dream husband. But isn’t it better in that case to remain single and have peace of mind than be led by our hearts and fall for a man who’s not been approved by God?
“Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!”—Matthew 7:9-11
Like a good father, God wants to provide us with the best, Spirit-filled, and godly husband that is perfect for us. All He requires is our trust and patience. Many will come to deceive us into a relationship, however, we must learn to discern and obey the voice of God. In John 10:27, the Lord Jesus speaks about His sheep that know His voice and follow Him; this can only be true to those that read and apply the Word of the God, and pray frequently. Therefore ladies, let’s do ourselves a favor by avoiding more heartbreaks and letting God be the center of our lives even our love lives.
