Are You "Fasting" In That Relationship

Have you ever wondered why exactly you desperately want a relationship? As in if I get engaged today so what? Is it to be part of the statistics? What profit does my relationship status bring to the kingdom?

What will be at stake if my partner and I are not together? Will angels rejoice over us or they will even want to scatter the whole thing?


Isaiah 58:6-11 says Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?

7 Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter--when you see the naked, to clothe him, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?

8 Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard.

9 Then you will call, and the LORD will answer; you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I. "If you do away with the yoke of oppression, with the pointing finger and malicious talk,

10 and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday.

11 The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.


Now I am not talking of literal fasting...its not about 20 days or even 100 days. I am saying while in that relationship, beyond the eating out, the pictures, the tingling sensation and romantic messages, are you adding value to one another? Is heaven proud of you? Are you kingdom minded?


Do you both just go out one evening to preach the gospel on a particular street? Do you intercede for souls? Do you practice giving? e. g instead of spending on yourself all the time, you can pick a date to visit the orphanage? Do you speak to the lives of your unborn children? Do you take confessions together? Are you both dedicated church workers?


If there is a general church cleaning for example with other young people, do you make yourselves available? Are you making impact even right in that relationship?

Many people say after a while relationship becomes boring as such keep jumping from one to another. It is because they do the same thing all the time. Those without the fear of God even dabble into sex since there is nothing else again.


While waiting, keep yourselves engaged in godly things. It even grows your intimacy. God is checking your heart. Perhaps if he gives you that relationship now, you won't serve him again. I hope you also know that serving God diligently comes with rewards? You see why you can't be unequally yoked with an unbeliever or even a believer that has no God-sense?



My relationship will glorify God.



Lord renew my mindset.



Is my relationship adding value or will my future relationship add value?



Sincerely make an honest criticism of your relationship or the one you hope to have



2nd Corinthians 6
