I think something that I want to share with you that I think is amazing and wonderful is that God knows exactly who you are going to marry or did marry. God made that person JUST for you. I am so amazed at how God does that. It’s so amazing and fascinating to me. We don’t have to make things happen, they just will and in His timing and hopefully we are wise in hearing His voice and we go to the right one. It is our job to grow in Christ and build and be the kind of person we believe God has made us to be. As we seek God and if our future spouse is seeking God-it’s like a triangle and we will meet at the top-in the center of God’s will. Everything will work out right and good if we are TRULY seeking Jesus. It’s in His hands the outcome of the relationship if we are seeking Him. Our job is just to obey Him in all we do.
God really does care VERY much about who we marry and our lives. He cares about our future children and He even cares about what we eat and how we act and everything about our lives. He doesn’t want us to be a “fan of Jesus” but a true follower of Jesus! Jesus wants us to take up our cross and our lives and lay them at His feet-trusting Him in all areas and in all things. Our life-once given to Jesus is not our own, but God’s. If we are a true follower of Jesus, our lives will be evidence of it and it will show, there will be fruit of that in our lives. We will be set apart and different. We won’t casually date because we know that the heart and life of someone is serious-but we do it out of respect and the intention of marriage in mind. We seek God and His plan for our lives without question. We study His words and His life and we do what’s right because it’s right, not to make someone happy or any other reason. We do what’s right because we want to please God and because it’s right.
Humbleness is a key to all of this. Humility and trust in Christ is important to any follower and child of God! So I encourage you to grow in your faith, grow strong in Jesus and do not give into sin, don’t go to the things of this world because they can’t satisfy you. It will be hard at times, but the reward in the end is worth it all! Jesus is the best thing and once you really know Him that’s all you will want to know-is how to please and honor Him in all you do and say.
Please wait patiently and seek Jesus and His will for your life. That is one thing that I am learning every day and I hope you learn that as well! God will work all things out for your good if you seek Him with all of your heart, soul, mind and strength! :)
