God Takes Friendships Away

A recent dilemma.

About a week or two ago God let me know that He wants me to separate from a certain friend but He didn’t reveal why. I wanted to interrogate Him about it but decided not to. Reason being, I had my own reservations about this person for some time and tried to ignore it. Something about their disposition, tone and words toward me just isn’t right. God must have noticed it and then some.

The warning came out of nowhere. I was sitting down, doing nothing in particular when my mind wandered on this friend. Then boom! I heard a voice say ‘I am going to separate you two, and cause a distance between you.’ Immediately I asked, but why Lord? This person hasn’t done anything so bad that I couldn’t forgive them. He never answered that question.

Nonetheless I’ve decided to trust God on this one. The last time I ignored a warning from Him, I landed myself in a lot of trouble which I’m still recovering from. Thankfully my mistakes are behind me and I’m almost fully restored.

Taking heed to this warning was hard because I don’t want to mistake my feelings for His word. I also don’t want to burn bridges because I couldn’t discern the difference. What if I somehow convinced myself God speaking to me when it was really my subconscious thoughts?

On the other hand, I’ve been working very hard to align myself more with God. Therefore, I believe my thoughts are influenced by Him. In addition, it has been my observation that God communicates through the heart and mind. Knowing this allows me to have faith and trust in Him. Lastly, I thought of  Proverbs 3:5-6 “trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him and He will make your paths straight.”

In other words, God’s got this.
