Every good and worthwhile relationship produces results. Motivational speakers, inspirational messages and yes the Bible states that relationships should be beneficial to your well being. And if the relationship is not beneficial you should get out of that relationship.
I’m not saying in every relationship you have you are digging for what that person can do for you that type of behavior is an indication that something is awry within you. The Bible says it best, “iron sharpens iron”.
The ultimate relationship we can have on the earth is a relationship with God. He is our Creator, our Father and sustainer in life. No one who is truly successful in life can do without Him.
That relationship with God is a beautiful one and one hat yields results. Oh yes! A relationship with the Father is a relationship that you absolutely benefit from. A person can’t say they love The Lord and have a relationship with Him yet their life be devoid of wisdom, understanding, growth, health and wealth.
Look at the span of Solomon’s life. I kings 3:3 says “Solomon loved The Lord”. I kings 4:29 shows the benefit of Solomon’s relationship, “And God have Solomon wisdom and understanding exceeding much, and largeness of heart, even as the sand that is in the sea shore”. I kings 5:4 shows the progression of the relationship “God hath given me rest on every side, so that there is neither adversary nor evil occurrent”. Wow. But then Solomon didn’t watch his heart with all diligence and pride came in. He began to love many strange women and those women brought their strange gods which he also began to love (I kings 11:1-4, 9-10). Ecclesiastes thoroughly documents Solomon’s madness and problems that over took him once he turned his back on The Lord whom He once loved.
Your ability to shine on the earth and be productive with the gifts, skills and talents God has given to you is only heightened through your relationship with The Lord. Your sensitivity to the spirit of The Lord brings wisdom and all other things you need to be productive. You can’t “keep going through” if your relationship with The Lord is strong. To increase in productivity you must increase in your relationship.
**Strengthen your relationship**
- Read the Word: if no Word is put inside of you, when you need it nothing will come out.
- Listen to the Word: faith [to do exploits] comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.
- Pray: if you are in a relationship communication is key, prayer is communication.
- Be sensitive: listen to what the Spirit of The Lord is saying to you, that is your key to productivity.
