Have you ever noticed that the pleasure the world provides is far less valuable than what God has created? You might have 350 cable channels and can’t find anything to watch, but you can go to the ocean and sit for hours watching the sea or go to the mountains and hike for days. It’s so interesting how you can chase after the things of this world when so much of God’s goodness is right in front of your eyes, free for the taking and specifically given for your enjoyment.
It is the same with human relationships. Are you chasing after a relationship that is not good for you? Are you holding tightly to someone who mistreats you? If so, consider what kind of a relationship God offers you… God is perfect love, passionate love, and never-ending love. His one desire is for you to be with Him. He is always with you, He never leaves you, betrays you, mistreats you. God knows you like no other and knows how to make you happy.
If you are hurt, confused, or disenchanted over a human relationship, take time to turn to God in prayer and ask Him to help you understand what His plan for your happiness is and how much He loves you. Let Him give you what you need and show you the way to true peace and happiness.
We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. – 1 John 4:16
