"You Are One Person Away from Making or Breaking Your Relationship Destiny" Part 2

Updated on May 29, 2015

“The biblical law of effectiveness in relationship declares that anyone out of place will also be out of order”

"Pay attention to the signs"

Relationship is like taking a destination trip but there must be proper planning in advance for this trip. Signs play an important part during travel on this trip such as yield, stop, go, detour and the specific route that is being taken. Transportation maintenance is checked to make sure everything is in place and in working order so the trip can be as pleasant as possible.

When entering a relationship one must not ignore the signs that God will make visual because he does not want the enemy of relationship to lead astray with his tricks and schemes. Often how handsome or beautiful a person looks takes precedence over character and relationship with God. The yield sign is put in place for individuals to move with caution because there is potential danger. The Devil or even personal fleshly desires want to move quickly because an unyielding mindset rationalizes an opportunity.

An unyielding mindset may also move quickly because it feels the opportunity may not present itself again. Accidents that could have been avoided occur when yield signs are ignored. On the other hand if yield signs are observed then the destination becomes safe because what needs to be done during travel whether braking or picking up speed or stopping can be done. The detour sign is taking another way to get to a desired destination because the expected route has been blocked. Many times God will block a desired route because the detour is necessary to have a different look about things. On the other hand Satan will use a detour to cause confusion and frustration to where a person loses their way. Satan’s stops and go’s are always the opposite because he is a liar, so accidents will always be at a higher rate. God’s stops and go’s always prevent accidents from happening.

It is out of place and out of order for couples to be selfish instead of selfless

It is out of place and out of order for couples to be selfish instead of selfless

Philippians 2:4 - Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.

  • Satan will send individuals who are only concerned about themselves while God will place a person who are giving expecting nothing in return.

Ananias and Sapphira were clearly not good for one another because Satan filled their heart to lie to the Holy Ghost as they conspired together. They both lost their lives because of this.

But a man named Ananias, with his wife Sapphira, sold a piece of property, and kept back some of the price for himself, with his wife's full knowledge, and bringing a portion of it, he laid it at the apostles' feet. But Peter said, "Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and to keep back some of the price of the land?


It is out of place and out of order for a person to use position, power and wealth to manipulate another

  • There are individuals out there who use their influence to manipulate. This happens even in the Church with Pastors who seduce their members through their positions of influence.
  • Sarah was a woman who was forced to be with another man who was in a high ranking position (Pharaoh). Even though God is not opposed to wealth, he is opposed to males and females using their wealth and position to manipulate another. Satan will gladly introduce someone to another in this way.

Genesis 12:14 - Please say that you are my sister so that it may go well with me because of you, and that I may live on account of you." It came about when Abram came into Egypt, the Egyptians saw that the woman was very beautiful. Pharaoh's officials saw her and praised her to Pharaoh; and the woman was taken into Pharaoh's house.



It is out of place and out of order for a person to be controlled by another

  • Sarai was taken by Pharaohs servants and held by Pharaoh against her will because God had to free her. Satan introduces people who control through fear, physical verbal and emotional abuse and it takes God to remove the victim out of such a relationship.

Genesis 15:16-17 - Pharaoh's officials saw her and praised her to Pharaoh; and the woman was taken into Pharaoh's house. Therefore he treated Abram well for her sake; and gave him sheep and oxen and donkeys and male and female servants and female donkeys and camels. But the LORD struck Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai, Abram's wife.…

It is out of place and out of order for a male or female to impose their will on another without the others consent

  • Pharaoh was playing the blame game toward Abram when God moved with plagues against his house. He was asking why Abram did not tell him Sarai was his wife, when he should have been decent enough to ask Sarai or Abram are you married. Satan will entice a person to impose their will on another without consent.

God knew Abram and Sarai belonged together so he did what was needed to remove her from Pharaohs house and bring her back to Abram.

Genesis 12:17-19 - But the LORD struck Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai, Abram's wife. Then Pharaoh called Abram and said, "What is this you have done to me? Why did you not tell me that she was your wife? "Why did you say, 'She is my sister,' so that I took her for my wife? Now then, here is your wife, take her and go."…

It is out of place and out of order for a spouse through lies to lead their significant other into the arms of another


  • Abram through fear of losing his life forced Sarah into a bad position by telling her to lie and say she was his sister. Spouses who are not honest with each other open the door for someone else who does not belong to come into the picture.

Genesis 14:13-15 - "Please say that you are my sister so that it may go well with me because of you, and that I may live on account of you." It came about when Abram came into Egypt, the Egyptians saw that the woman was very beautiful. Pharaoh's officials saw her and praised her to Pharaoh; and the woman was taken into Pharaoh's house.…

It is out of place and out of order for a person to betray God by putting a relationship before him through selfishness

Abraham betrayed God by thinking more about his earthly relationship with Sarai than his heavenly relationship with God.
