Are You In A Relationship Or You're Isolated?

When God created man, He discovered that it was not good for man to be alone. Based on this stance, He then made a help meet for him. Man in his best state can't do without a 'help meet' even before the need of a marriage partner comes into play. 
.
The beauty of life is in having good relationships that add spice to your life. Man wasn't created to be alone, he was made to enjoy intimacy with His Creator first and then the opposite sex. But when he sinned, he isolated himself from God and sought relationship with men. 
.
Quite a lot of people had entered into a relationship so as to find a 'help mate' suitable for them. But unfortunately, many found more than what they bargained for. 
.
To be in a relationship isn't a crime but it's a crime when the relationship isolates you from those who matters most in your life. 
.
Because a lot of people wanted to please their boyfriends or girlfriends, they went the length of becoming obsessed and disobedient to their parents, guardian and elders. This became the genesis of their doom.
.
In case you don't know, the primary relationship a man ought to have is the relationship with His Creator. Adam had an intimate relationship with God before He made a help meet for him. Are you in a relationship with God or you're isolated from Him? 
.
Any relationship that takes you away from God will expose you to bitter consequences in life. It is better you know God first than to know your boyfriend or girlfriend. It's much better to give God your heart than to give him or her that would ruin it. You don't give pearls to swine and you'd expect it to be appreciated. 
.
Do you have an intimate relationship with God? Ever since you entered into that relationship, how has your relationship with God been? Do you still give Him the best of your time or your leftovers? Do you talk to Him as lovers or your conversation with Him has become cold and empty? Are you interested in His things or they become boring while you're filled with ecstasy in your opposite sex relationship? 
.
Man wasn't made to be independent or self-dependent. The best of human relationship cannot fill the vacuum in your life nor can it satisfy your inner longing for love and acceptance. 
.
Ladies met their waterloo when they ran into the arms of their boyfriends for love, intimacy and acceptance. It's better you're in a relationship with God and have all that you need than to starve or become destitute of what He can easily give. 
.
Your boyfriend can't give you happiness in life if you haven't found the true source of joy in life. He can't guarantee you a successful relationship if He doesn't show you the secrets of a successful relationship. 
.
Men too won't be spared from the consequence of becoming isolated from God when they fall into the hands of strange women or infidels. Your communion with God ought to be paramount in your life than your conversation with men. However, who or what you spend the most of your time with determines who or what you love and what you become in life. 
.
Dear reader, remember your first love if you have one. Remember how you were so passionate about your first Love before someone or something else took over. Remember how you kept your body for His glory but now you give your body as an object for immorality. Remember how you spend your time for Him but now you spend hours doing things that takes you away from Him. 
.
Do you still have a relationship with God or you have been isolated from God? It doesn't matter what or who took you away from Him, all that matter is your decision to go back now, just like the prodigal son did. Will you? 
.
It might seem rosy now to be away from Him but the pleasure is temporal. You may seem to be catching fun now but the end of such fun is bitter. Those who are isolated from God cannot reign with His Son when He returns. 
.
Is God taking the first place in your life or your boyfriend, girlfriend or marital partner? You cannot get His best if you make Him the less of your priorities in life. There are more tragedies in life when you're isolated from God but plenty benefits when you're in a cordial relationship with Him. Those who know their God (walking with Him) are strong and do exploits.
.
Today is the best time to repent like the prodigal son did and return to your first love. Remember your Creator now before the evil days come near. Don't waste your life on a relationship that won't add value to your life and eternity. Give Him your best today so that you can spend the rest of your life in posterity.
