Relationships will make or mar you in life. How you handle relationships will determine how well you do in life. David’s life was a web of relationship with God and Men. How well you can spin that web will determine your safety, progress, speed and accomplishments in life.

You must strengthen your relationship with God and ensure it is intact. This is your foundational relationship that must constantly increase. Ministry is actually an outflow of life not a performance or demonstration. When you are into ministry without a relationship with God, you become a joker and an ordinary motivational speaker. Your words will have no divine backing and no force of heaven. The devil will do everything possible to fight your relationship with God and you must guard it jealously. God will make allowance for your mistakes and carelessness. Don’t mistake God’s allowances for condoning it. God loves us equally but doesn’t bless us equally. God is committed to us equally but we don’t do the same things, so we don’t experience the same blessings of God. 

An example of a web of relationship as seen in the life of David includes David and Jonathan; David and Eliab; David and Bathseba; David and Solomon; David and Goliath; David and Joab; David and Nabal.

 

Each of these relationships was meant to accomplish one thing or the other in the life of David but some of them had a negative ending. No matter how great you talk of David today, whenever you hear of David and Bathsheba, adultery comes to your mind. This is the major reason you must prayerfully discover divine intention before entering into any relationship. When the purpose of a thing is not known, then the abuse of it is inevitable. Be determined to spin a web of great and powerful relationships around yourself as it will make you better off.

Prayer: Father, I pray for the revelation of your purpose in every relationship I am in presently and the ones I will step into later. Help me to maximize divine agenda and program for my life and destiny in Jesus’ name. Amen.
