The Bible says, “Evil communication corrupts good manner”(1 Cor 15:33). Evil relationships will corrupt character. When character is corrupted, destiny is corrupted. When destiny is corrupted, life is wasted, and when life is wasted, eternity is jeopardized.
What the Bible calls ”evil communication” can come in different forms, many times we can be in evil relationships and be unaware. Samson was in an evil relationship until it terminated his sight, his calling and his destiny. If you don’t terminate that relationship, it will cost you your sight, calling and destiny. Below are 7 types of evil relationship you must discontinue;
1. Demonic Relationship
Some relationships are downright demonic. Your relationship with a fellow girl, using you as a toy in lesbianism is downright demonic. It may sound strange but it a (demonic relationships). This is everywhere now, very rampant; children with their fathers, elder sisters with younger brothers,church members with their pastors etc. When you find yourself romantically attached to someone you should not be feeling any sort of romantic attraction towards, it is demonic. You have to put a stop to it.
2. A Draining Relationship
Some relationships might not defile you, but they will drain you of all energy. They will dry you up: of virtue, inspiration, motivation to study the word, pray. Everything might look alright on the surface, but it is not sharpening you, it is dulling you, draining you. There are people the devil will put in your life, they are not sleeping with you, but over time you notice that you are being drained. Beware of draining relationships, it is a war tactics that the devil uses. This kind of relationship that divests you of energy, strength; Before that relationship quenches you, quench that relationship.
3. Defiling Relationship
Any relationship that defiles you, defiles your thought, your body with a man, woman, boy, girl, or adult, is a relationship that must be discontinued. Samson got used to defiling relationships and he became comfortable in them. You can be living in sin and miracles will still be happening in your life and through your life; gifts of the Spirit will still be flowing and you will think you are right, Satan can even help you by quoting scriptures about grace until he destroys you, it is a trap. Don’t fall into that kind of trap.
4. A Distracting Relationship
Some relationships will not defile or drain you, but they will distract you, you just discover that you are not able to focus on the things you should be focusing on. Prayer times are now chatting times. When you discover that a relationship is now a distraction your relationship with God, to focusing on your dreams, you must terminate it. No God-given relationship will distract you, defile you or drain you. As long as Delilah was in the life of Samson, he never prayed instead, in the night he slept on her laps, he didn’t even know when God left. Discontinue the distracting relationships.
5. A Dominating Relationship
This is an enslaving relationship, a relationship where you have no freedom. There are some young men and women who in the name of love have given someone the right to their freedom; that slavery is not love. Every relationship that has robbed you of your liberty is a relationship that must be cut off. There is no relationship God will bring into your life that will rob you of your freedom that you already have in Christ (Gal 5:1). Discontinue that controlling and dominating relationship.
