When you are single, there are times that, because of loneliness, you may find yourself thinking about old relationships or considering new relationships with people you meet that you know are not of God. Even though you know these things, in your mind they are still relationships.
Since the devil knows you have a ministry, he is going to do everything he can to slow you down and get you side tracked. One of the ways he does this is through the area of lonliness in your life.
1 Peter 5:8 says: Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. - Why is he coming after you through this area of loneliness? It's because you are a threat to his Kingdom.
However, today you don't have to let this happen to you. Always keep in mind that it is better to be lonely than to be with the wrong person, because that is exactly what the devil would want. He wants you to get to the point where you would settle and feel that any old relationship would do for you. But, that is NOT the plan God has for you. He has the right person in mind for you, however, you must be determined to wait on God. So, when that feeling of lonliness comes over you, do as James 4:7 says: Submit yourselves to God. Resist the devil, and he will FLEE from you.
Wait on God and you will be happy. Wait on God and you will be satisfied. Wait on God and you will be joyful. WAIT ON GOD!

And, your partner may agree that he/she should change, but because they have been doing it so long, it may take some time. Find more inside...
