1. A defiling relationship
Any relationship with a man, woman, boy, girl, or adult that defiles you, defiles your thought, defiles your body, must be ended. Samson grew accustomed to defiling relationships and felt at ease in them. You can be living in sin and still have miracles happen in and through your life; gifts of the Spirit will continue to flow and you will believe you are correct; Satan can even assist you by quoting scriptures about grace until you are destroyed; it is a trap. Do not fall into such a trap.
Any relationship that defiles you should be ended immediately; you don't have to think twice about it. Don't fool yourself: the Bible says, "He who sows to his flesh will reap corruption from his flesh" (Gal 6:8)Don't let anyone persuade you to accept something that isn't right: a relationship that causes you to disobey God should be ended.
2. A draining relationship
Some relationships do not defile you, but they deprive your energy. They will drain you with virtue, inspiration, and motivation to study and pray the Bible. Everything may appear to be in order on the surface, but it is dulling you and draining you. The devil will place people in your life who is not sleeping with you, but you will notice that you are being drained over time. The devil uses draining relationships as a war tactic. That kind of relationship that saps your energy and strength; quench that relationship before it saps your strength.
3. A distracting relationship
Some relationships will not defile or drain you, but they will distract you, and you will find that you are unable to focus on the things that you should. Prayer times have been replaced by chatting times. When you realize that a relationship is interfering with your relationship with God or your ability to focus on your dreams, you must end it. You will not be distracted, defiled, or drained by any God-given relationship. Samson never prayed as long as Delilah was in his life; instead, he slept on her laps at night, and he had no idea when God had left. Discontinue the relationships that are causing you to be distracted.
4. A dominating relationship
This is a shackling relationship, one in which you have no control. Some young men and women have given someone the right to their freedom in the name of love; slavery is not loved. Every relationship that has taken away your freedom must be severed. There is no relationship that God will bring into your life that will take away your freedom in Christ (Gal 5:1). Remove yourself from the controlling and dominating relationship.
5. A demonic relationship
Some relationships aren't just filthy, draining, distracting, or controlling; they're downright demonic. Your lesbian relationship with a fellow girl who uses you as a toy is downright demonic. It may seem strange, but (demonic relationships) are all around us, and they are very common: children with their fathers, older sisters with younger brothers, church members with their pastors, and so on. It's demonic when you find yourself romantically attached to someone you shouldn't be attracted to in the first place. Delilah was nothing more than a demonic spirit's physical agent (Judges 16:23-24)
In the name of Jesus, Father, let every agent of darkness sent into my life to sabotage my destiny collide with fire and fail in their mission.
6. a demoralizing relationship
A depressing relationship leaves you feeling uninspired and unmotivated. "Iron sharpens iron," according to the Bible (Prov 27:17). You will not be demoralized by any relationship that God brings into your life. Samson's and Delilah's relationship was demoralizing. She vexed, discouraged, and demoralized him to the point where he could no longer muster the courage to be consecrated. (16:16) (Judges 16:16) Some men and women mock holiness and consecration, making them appear out of style.
When you're in a relationship with someone like this, you feel like you're about to lose your virginity. They try to dissuade you from doing good and living a holy life. People like that should be cut out of your life at all costs.
7. A Damaging relationship
Some relationships can be harmful. They don't defile, drain, or distract you, but they do have the potential to harm you. They harm your spiritual sensitivity, hunger for God, self-esteem, and before you know it, you're feeling worthless; they harm your destiny, as Delilah did to Samson. Samson did not realize how damaging the relationship was until his eyes were gone and he was in prison.
