God is so amazing! He designed everything in His creation to relate to something in it’s environment. Things were designed to benefit and serve from their relationships. Realize that the birds need the air, the fish need water, the plants need the sun, etc. Well, when it comes to man, God created us to be able to relate and have meaningful relationships with other humans. We must have healthy relationships in order to have successful and effective development. Relationships are so important. We were not designed to live without it. The truth of the matter is if we don’t understand relationships we will never be fulfilled. I think it’s time to discover how to live according to God’s plan, and improve our relationships with others.
So we need know that the purpose behind our creation was LOVE. In I John we are told that “God is love.” Yes, He shows loves, and yes, He gives love, but He’s not limited to just doing those things. He is the definition of LOVE. That’s why I believe He wants us to experience love. Hey, if He commands that we LOVE one another as we love ourselves there must be something essential about LOVE. I love what Dr. Myles Munroe said, “It is the nature of love to give of itself, and it cannot give in isolation. In order for love to be fulfilled, it has to have someone to love, and it has to give to it’s beloved.”
Out of all the wonderful things God created He found that His greatest creation was man. Why, you might ask? Well, man was made in the image of God. -(Genesis 1:27) Man was created to have relationship with God. Remember, the nature of God is to give and love. Man was intended to be a recipient of all that He is and all that He has. Look at Ephesians 2:10, “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” We were created for fellowship. Ya see, in order for us to fulfill our purpose in the earth we MUST have fellowship with God, and the only way to have fellowship with God is through the Spirit. I’m convinced that you will never be satisfied unto you establish a real relationship with God through Christ Jesus. He must be first in our lives. NOTHING should EVER come before that relationship. Look at this way, God is the Author of our lives. He’s the Manufacturer…He knows us inside and out. Why would we look to any one or any things else for fulfillment? Only God can do that!
Do you believe that God has a plan and purpose for your life? Don’t allow the enemy to come in and play mind games with you about who you are. You see what he did for Adam and Eve when they decided to disobey God. That decision altered their relationship with Him and with each other. When we step outside of God’s will there is no way we can live an effective and productive life. I’m telling you that God’s purpose is the key to our fulfillment.
We can build better relationships with our brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, wives, husbands, children, cousins, co-workers, friends, etc. once we establish a real relationship with our loving God. Our relationship with Him will set the tone for all other relationships in our lives. Know that God desires for us to have healthy relationships, loving relationship.
