Here are 7 signs God is telling you to end that relationship:
1. The relationship is against God’s word
Thou shalt not commit adultery. Exodus 20:14
The first clear sign that you should end a relationship is if that relationship is against the principles laid out in the Bible.
Many of us enter into relationships because we feel so connected or in love with that person, but if the relationship directly violates God’s word, that’s a clear sign that that relationship is not one God approves.
Feelings and emotions are fleeting they come and go but God’s word stays the same; He does not change.
However, at some point you’d have to make a decision whether or not your connection with this person is more important to you than your salvation.
We cannot serve God and serve self at the time. The person encourages you to disobey God
Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Ephesians 5:6
2.A clear sign that God is telling you to end a relationship is if that person encourages you to disobey God.
Ask yourself: Is this person always asking me to violate God’s word in order to gain worldly pleasure?
Do they sometimes dissuade me from attending church services or spending time with God? Do they act like obedience to God is more of an option rather than a requirement?
If your answer is yes to any of the above questions, this may be a sign that God is telling you to run.So Run!
We sometimes believe that if we stay with a person long enough, we can change them.However, the only one who can change a person is God.
Pay attention to a person’s actions rather than their words. If they continuously encourage you to disobey God now, chances are they’ll continue to encourage you to disobey God three years from now.
3. You are being treated poorly
If you feel like you’re being neglected or mistreated it’s a sign that that relationship should end.
No one or no amount of money is worth living in constant fear of being abused.
It doesn’t matter how long the relationship has lasted up till this point or how many children you have together if your partner is constantly treating you poorly, God is telling you it’s time to end that relationship.
4. Substitute With God
It’s time to end a relationship when that person has become more important to you than God.
When we seek to please someone over our relationship with God, we have the made that person a god in our lives.
We have placed our trust and hope in a human who cannot provide for our needs, rather that our Heavenly Father.
You know you’ve made someone an idol when you find yourself compromising your Christian values to please that person.
5.Maybe it’s time to step back and re-evaluate your priorities; The relationship has become toxic and overbearing
Can two walk together, except they be agreed?( Amos 3:3)
If the relationship has become a catalyst for constant stress in your life, God is telling you to end the relationship.
It is impossible for two people to be in a healthy happy relationship if there is consistent disagreement between them.
If peace cannot be found and there is constant regret and fighting then it’s time to prayerfully ask God for guidance and direction.
6. When you're in a relationship with a non-Christians
"And what communion hath light with darkness?"( 2 Corinthians 6:14)
We know that we shouldn’t be romantically involved with unbelievers, i.e non-Christians.
However, did you know that you can be unequally yoked with someone from your own church?
Being unequally yoked goes far beyond just having the different religions but it also means having different value systems and ideas about life in general.
7. Grievous Disagreements
A lot of couples find themselves is grievous disagreements because they never took the take to discuss and agree upon important matters such as: financial planning, raising or having children, and career paths.
If your idea of a happy home doesn’t match with the person you’re seeing, then there’s a great chance that you are unequally yoked and God is telling you to end that relationship.
You may be mated but you are not matched.I believe we ought to seek God’s guidance for everything in life.We should seek God first before we get into a relationship and during a relationship.
God may place someone in your life for only a season or he/she may be the person God is leading you to marry.
But in all things seek God first.
