All of us meet many people each day of our lives, some from our place of work others from friends of our friends or introductions , or some  just out of the clear blue sky.We build friendships and relationships on a regular basis during our life time.Some people we want to spend every minute of the day with and others we call only when we have a problem.God has a different way of looking at the relationships he has us build.When  we think that a friendship is for our purpose or our gain it’s really not the case at all .He has bigger plan for us in these relationships or interactions with others around us.

Everyone has had the experience of people coming into their lives. Everyone has had the experience of people leaving their lives. There is a reason for both.
Reason God moves people into your life:

God is so concerned about people that he matches people up for a reason; mainly to help each other. He

puts people together so they can learn something from each other.
Reason God moves people out of your life:

When your mission with another person has been fulfilled, God will send that person out of your life.

That is indeed not a bad thing. In fact, it is a good thing. It is God’s way of saying you have learned everything you need to know from that person.

When God moves a person from your life, He is letting you know that you have learned everything you need to know from that person. That person has learned everything he needs to know from you. Then He places the two of you into two other lives to help them grow and develop.

To continue to hold on to a friendship after God says it is over is to go against God. The friendship will be counterproductive to God’s will, and you will no longer be under God’s grace in that friendship.When God tells us to do something and you pray to confirm what that small soft voice is telling you and you don’t obey then you’re NOT following what God wants for your life and sometimes this puts into a storm or season that we need to get through until we learn what he is trying to teach us in our lives.

Thats one way of looking at the way God moves people in and out of our lives, the other way is by looking at the character of the people we surround ourselves with on social media or at work or even within our family and close friends.

Lets dig a little deeper into this. I want to ask you a question: What kind of character do your friends have? Think about the people you eat lunch with at work or those you consider your closest friends. Do they gossip? Are their attitudes generally negative or positive? Now, we aren’t supposed to cut ourselves off from everybody who isn’t a Christian, and there may be someone who needs to see your witness. “Make sure you are affecting the people you spend time with instead of letting them infect you.” There’s a big difference.Until we get this right, there will always be conflict and chaos. However, when we embrace our friendships and relationships God’s way, we will always find joy and peace.

I have thought about this over and over and it constantly applies to my life daily …… If you read it over and over a few times you will see how it makes sense to all of our lives.We all have someone in our lives that aren’t making us a Stronger Christian.We should always remember Iron Sharpens Iron.The enemy comes in sheep clothing.

Matthew 7:15 “Beware of false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves.

The things that we allow in our lives that don’t bare fruit need to go away. Whatever it is in your life that is INFECTING you instead of Affecting you in a positive fruitful Godly way needs to go. Sometimes God does this for us without us even knowing. God loves you so much he  cleans up things he knows aren’t a part of his eternal plan for our future.Not everyone that is moved into your path is for your good or theirs.

I had a friend for many years very close to me and he wasn’t of the same faith as I am now, and when I shared to him that I follow Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior he started to come at me and down me and tell me how its fake and a joke. I used to say to him what my feelings were every time we met for lunch or had phone conversation.

Few months later I noticed that the Lord was putting this friend farther and farther from me and my life. One phone call a week went to one call per month and now it’s been over 2 years and haven’t had one email or phone call from him.

I have seen this happen in many of my fellow believers lives. God knows what’s best for us even when we do not. Always keep your eyes open to those who try and bring you down and never lift you up.Keep God always in first position .

We have enough negative people around us in the world  that we don’t need the enemy to have any more ways to try and  infect our lives. He will always try to find our weakest point and push his way in. Stay strong in Prayer and keep good company. My mother always told me, “Who you hang out with, is what you will become in life”.Start moving into Gods plan for your life and Don’t hold onto the baggage it will weigh you down and keep you from Gods ultimate plan for your life.

Jeremiah 29:11” For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”

Our Pray For You Today : I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love.
