God Blocked It!!!!

I’ve spent the last couple of weeks with my mind inundated on a person that I know was not God’s will for my life. Of course I thought if I prayed and continued to believe that God would “fix” the situation, and all things would work out for my good (Romans 8:28 ESV). It’s amazing how when desperation consumes us that we attempt to apply scripture to work for our benefit. I knew that scripture did not apply to my insanity, but I wanted there to be a light at the end of the tunnel. However, God seen totally different. The person I was dating decided he did not want a commitment, but expected for me to wait until he did. Since he was not ready to fully commit his life to God as I have, he didn’t agree with my standards. This rejection had me at a place that I was willing to compromise. Usually I consult God about everything, I never want to be out of His will. However, I was so overwhelmed with desire that I did not want to pray about it because I was not ready to face the truth.

One day I was sitting at my desk, and I could not focus! I felt like I was about to lose my mind. The thought of him was all that I could think of. “I can’t believe that he does not want to commit to me? I have everything going for myself, is he crazy! He’ll never find anyone like me. Maybe if I give him something he can feel, his mind will change.” I was thinking like a woman who was not saved by His grace. I was almost willing to turn my back on God to get what I felt was rightfully mine. The devil is a lie. We are Princesses of a King, and we never have to beg anyone to come nor stay! Anyway, as much as I did not want to pray about this, I did, I needed His strength in my very weak moment. Immediately after I cried out, I felt freedom as never before. The bondage was broke, and my blinded eyes were open. I compare this trial to a baby getting ready to touch a fire, and a parent rescuing them right before they get burnt. He not only pulled me out of the situation, He patted me on my tail and said “I pulled you out, now don’t go back.” When God removes you from a situation, you know it’s Him because there’s a sense of peace, and relief. The guy that I was communicating with no longer calls my phone or texts me, and I don’t’ have any desire to reach out to him. I’m thankful for God intervening as only He could. I am so, so grateful because there is no way that I could have done it on my own.

I am a very private person, but this experience was for God’s glory, and my good. So keeping it to myself was not an option. Ladies or gentlemen, if you are struggling in this area, please pray and believe. When I tell you that I feel liberated, it’s an understatement. I have cut relationships on my own, but to have God to do it is a different experience. He loves us that much to save us from harm. “And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. (1 Peter 5:10 ESV). My sincere prayer is that God will not allow anymore distractions in my life, I never want to go through this again!! It’s time to focus on His Kingdom, and not my desires. It’s easy to lose focus if your mind is not set on His purpose. “But seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you (Matthew 6:33 ESV). That’s a promise that He made to us, so let’s have faith, and trust that the mate that God has for us, He’ll add them in due season.

Please pray for me, and I’m praying for you :). I pray that my testimony will be a blessing to you. “No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and He will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation He will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it (1 Corinthians 10:13).

Talk to you soon!

    Thanks for posting this! It’s good to hear! I’m just starting to talk to a guy online, but he had to go away for two weeks without ability to communicate (I know it sounds ridiculous in this day and age, but it’s military, so I believe it to be legit), and right away, my temptation was to fill that lack in communication with someone else who, when I really think it through, probably isn’t a good fit, because I’m just trying to grasp at straws. I realize that my story here is not nearly to the same scale as yours, but it’s made me think this through. I have a good, peaceful feeling about the one who’s away right now, so I will wait for him to return; God’s timing is so so so much better than mine.

      Please wait! Because focusing on the distraction can be the very reason that you miss out on what God has for you. Loneliness can cause us to make some bad choices. I’m a firm believer that anything that you have to wait for, is a sure indication that God is preparing you for something great. Good luck, and I’ll be praying for you.

        Loneliness could definitely lead to desperation. I know from a recent experience. Loneliness could always lead to self evaluation. I had to think about a recent situation in which I DID compromise my beliefs for temporary satisfaction. The reason it was temporary was because I knew who I was, but when I compromised my beliefs for someone else, I had to think about how could I let god down (and that is not a good feeling)…how could I trade in the goodness of the lord, my god who has shown me grace and mercy for someone who could possibly care less about me in a week or so. It isn’t easy going against god because once you do, there is one event after the next that could easily snowball into destruction and it will eventually lead you back where you started from and hopefully you will stand still and not do anything that god doesn’t want you to do. Psalm 37:4 says “Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart.” This is all we need.

    Thank you for sharing your story! It’s funny that I came across it today because I just got out of a similar relationship a few weeks ago. I was feeling the same things you were: why WOULDN’T he want to commit to me? After far too much time spent and one too many disappointments from him, I was angry. I mean FUMING! That rage turned to a cry out to the Lord and I was broken. Not broken by this idiot I was dating, knowing he wasn’t the one for me, but sweetly broken in Jesus. Well joy comes in the morning, girl. That weight was lifted off my shoulders and it’s like I suddenly saw everything with my eyes wide open! I wasn’t blinded by my infatuation, my logic came back, and I remembered who God said I am. You really hit home when you said: “We are Princesses of a King, and we never have to beg anyone to come nor stay!” AMEN!!!!! So true. Love this. Thank you again and God Bless

      Hi Sister! Sorry for my delay in responding, I just came across your comment. God is so faithful in pulling us out of anything that may cause us harm. Although, we might come out kicking and screaming, it’s all for our good. God will continue to reveal His perfect will for our lives, and all we have to do is wait and believe. May God bless you continuously.
