Prove Those Words.

Many years ago, when I was in high school, I remembered vividly the practical we did in a Chemistry class concerning how to prove the existence of acid and bases (alkaline) using a litmus paper. Red litmus paper turns blue and blue litmus paper turns read for acids. I'm sure science students can relate well with this. 
.
Do you know that there are several things you need to prove in life, even in your relationship? 
.
Quite a lot of people are only familiar with the wrong means of proving things. You don't prove the depth of a river by dipping your two legs inside it, you'll drown if you do so. But when you dip one leg at a time, you will know the depth of the river.
.
There are words, motives and spirits behind the activities of men. Words are powerful and easily destroys or build lives. What are the words you need to prove in your relationship? 
.
1. I love you 
.
This is a common phrase that has landed many into trouble. In fact, many ladies had gotten more than they bargained for just at the acceptance of his "I love you". 
.
Some guys demands you prove love to them through premarital sex or sexual immoralities, my dear, run for your life otherwise you'll be burnt. Let me tell you this, if you don't know what love is, you'll use the wrong things to prove it. 
.
Love is not sex. Love is not in kissing when you're not married. Love is kind. Love makes your life better and it will not destroy it. 
.
The best way to prove 'I love you' is not through sex but through good deed and in truth. Any proof of love that destroys your life is not the best proof of love. If his or her 'I love you' is conditional, then their love to you is insincere and won't stand the test of time. 
.
As singles, ask him, "Will you still love me if we embrace sexual purity"? "Will you still love me when you know me for who I am"? Ask her, "If she would love you when things don't seem rosy"? Love isn't in word or in tongue but in deed and in truth. 
.
Anybody can say I love you but not everyone can prove it through thick and thin. Prove that 'I love you' with time, purity and in truth otherwise it'll destroy your life. 
.
2. I want to marry you 
.
Never get so excited whenever anyone comes to you to tell you 'I want to marry you' but rather, take up the matter to God in prayer to know His mind on the matter. 
.
Many have accepted marriage proposals that led them to their early grave. They wanted to be married and ended up trapped in marital bondage, slavery or disharmony. Anyone can tell you 'I want to marry you' but only one person will be eligible for you to marry. 
.
And before you tell any lady 'I want to marry you', prove that word in the place of prayer. Be sure you're not carried away by her physical appearance or personality impression. All of these will change but only God's conviction can stand the test of time. 
.
Many will tell you they want to marry you only to waste your time and life. Some will tell you this only to use you to fill the emotional vacuum in their lives. Prove the authenticity of his or her 'I want to marry you' in the place of prayer so that what you don't know can be revealed to you. 
.
3. We are friends
.
It's not a crime to have friends, in fact we need friends that would help us grow and not the ones that would make us groan. 
.
What kind of friends do you have? Boyfriends? Girlfriends? Just friends? Any friendship you keep that doesn't add value to your life will take something valuable from you, either consciously or unconsciously. 
.
Prove their impact in your life. Friends are meant to sharpen your countenance in life. They are to spur up greatness in you. They're to challenge you and bring out the best in you. 
.
If you're just friends for sexual benefits, ungodly pursuit or for pleasure sake, your destiny will be shortchanged. If you're just friends and you're being exposed to premarital sex, abortion, sexual immoralities, then you need to quit that relationship otherwise you will destroy your life. 
.
Prove those words that are said to you and don't be carried away or become overly excited. If their 'I love you', 'I want to marry you' or 'We're just friends' aren't proven in a godly way, your acceptance of them will be a pathway to your destruction in life. 
.
Above all, prove all things and hold fast to that which is good. There's a spirit behind every words that is uttered to you, some to seduce, to deceive or to destroy. Do not believe every word until you have tried them whether they're good, godly or from God.
