We all have those people in our lives that only come back to us when they have no one else entertaining their drama. You know, that ex that left you for someone else, but comes back when that relationship is failing? The person who you had to drop because the relationship only connected on a physical level, but they hit you up hoping you dropped Jesus?
Some people will only hit you up after you drop a nice selfie. They see you looking happy and they want to pop back up to see if that door is still opened. If someone can jump in and out of your life, that means you are not moving forward, neither are you closing the door to the person God removed from your life. One of the most dangerous things you can do in a relationship is give a permanent position to a temporary person.
Why give life to something that God killed? God will block the enemy from poisoning our hearts and minds from fruitless relationships, but we must decide to stop running back to the person He protected us from. Some relationships only lead to sexual sins, why respond to the messages? Some connections only lead to arguments, why keep hanging out with them? You think you are saving them? False, the bible warns us against connecting to the wrong relationships.
Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners. (1 Corinthians 15:33)
Quit giving the enemy access, guard your heart. Be extreme, let people say you are taking Jesus too seriously. You realized your brokenness the day God saved you from your sin, why run back to the lifestyle that doesn’t satisfy? Believers, you are better than what the enemy offers, and you are surely greater than your past.
Declare this over yourself- I am worth more than a late night fling, I am worth the wait. I will not keep running back to the wo/man that God didn’t place in my life. I am not going to keep dating until I find purpose, my purpose is in Christ and I will wait until He leads me to the right person.
So the next time you get that text saying they miss you, understand that they need prayer for restoration in Christ, not you. Don’t be a victim of another person’s boredom.
Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. (Proverbs 4:23)
