Defining the Relationship Conversation


Devotion:  Malachi 3:6

Have you heard the term DTR conversation?  I could not imagine what the acronym stood for. My friend Stephanie used it in a  recent phone conversation.  I said; “Wait a minute, what did you just say?

She said DTR  means “Defining the relationship” conversation. Most of the time it’s between a boyfriend/girlfriend. When there are questions about the relationship or boundaries to be set; then it’s time to define the relationship.

There is one relationship we never have to worry about defining. That’s the one we have with Jesus Christ.  He doesn’t change from one day to the next.  He calls you His.  You are His bride and He is your Bridegroom.

You can be certain of your relationship with Christ.

Jesus will never leave you nor forsake you.  He is for you and not against you.  He gives you the Holy Spirit as a promise and a seal for the day of redemption.  He provides you with a full suit of armor to protect you from the evil one.

All of God’s promises are yes and amen.  You don’t have to wonder if He will go back on His promises.  He won’t.  He knew you before the foundation of the earth.  He chose to place you in your family.

He empowers you on a daily basis to accomplish His purpose and His plan.  He will comfort you when you need comforting.  He will convict you when you sin.  At the right time He died for you and longs to restore your soul.

He’s gone to prepare a place for you and will come again to receive you to Himself.  You are a living breathing testimony of the faithfulness of your Savior.  You will never have to define your relationship with Jesus.  It’s already been done in His Word.

Prayer in Motion:

Lord, thank You that our relationship is stable.  I will never have to worry about You changing.  I trust You to accomplish what concerns me always.  I love You Lord.  In Jesus Name I pray.  Amen
