This scripture truly cuts like a knife. It is sharper than any two edged sword for some of us. At some point in our dating season, we have all been at this stage.
The enemy comes but to steal, to kill, and to destroy. He knows that God has a plan and a purpose for women. Satan's plan is to kill our dreams. This is why he sends the wrong man into our lives. A man who does not fear God. Next, satan plans to steal our joy. This is why he sends conflict into that relationship. He knows that if we get all upset and our peace is disturbed, we will take our focus off of the one true and living God. The enemy studies his subjects. He knows that women are emotional creatures. His ultimate goal is to destroy not only what God has in store for women, but to destroy women themselves. This is why we get led captive by men who are lovers of themselves, heady, and high minded, among other things. The scripture tells us from such, turn away.
We must remember that we are more than conquerors through Jesus Christ that loves us. We have been given a gift more precious than any man could ever give us. "Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance, and perseverance, character, and character hope." Romans 5:1-4.
If we take time to dissect God's word, it is filled with relationship advice and encouragement. Seek God's face and follow Jesus' heart.
