Being single is a hard thing these days to live through. You have peer pressure at all age levels from people telling you what you want and need without even asking what you want and need.
Your will have people tell you because you are single you need a mate and they know of someone who will like and how he’s a nice person. This usually will come from people who do not really know you and may or may not be saved. This is not sound advice coming from people who do not follow GODS laws.
See, when I was single I got plenty of peer pressure, and this was annoying. For I knew the kind of man I was looking for. One who believed and loved GOD, would make a good husband who would never cheat on me in any form of adultery, love me as how much I loved him, be an excellent father to our children. Doing his best to be a GODLY man, husband and dad!
If you listen to the world and you are a GOD loving person, you can get distracted by what the world is trying to influence you to do. Now none of us people be it saved or unsaved are perfect. If it were so JESUS would not have gone through all of the hurt and pain he did here on this earth to save our souls. But what I am saying it is hard and you will slip up. But you will get back on track because this is where your true heart is….in the LORD.
Many of you will be approached by people who will tempt you to do what you do not want to do even from pre-school until you are called home to glory. Remember JESUS was tempted, and HE did not fall. But this is JESUS, we are weak without HIM, and do need HIM to keep us level and our heads above water so we can see the blessings HE is giving us believers in faith.
Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
When we do this, our mind is not on the fleshly desires. We have a better communication with the Lord and we can hear what it is He is trying to tell us to do. Just like if you were talking to a person, you need to talk to the Lord. For how else are you going to hear Him say to you, this is the person I am sending you to marry.
It is not just a matter of you just waiting. You need to be out in the world putting GOD first in all that you do. You still can go to church, work or school….out shopping, movies with friends from church as how you would normally. But for a man to find you, you will need to be seen for him to meet you. A homebound/couch potato man is not going to find a homebound/couch potato woman. The man will find the woman that is led to him through how God leads him to you.
But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Seek GOD to guide you to your mate, you dont know a persons true heart.
If you are a professional Christian artist, singer, dancer, business owners, writer, actor and so on you would want to meet up with like-minded people. Those who are equally yoked with you. Because you do not want to marry one whose a faith level is lesser that yours. Things will happen because of lifestyles and you both will not be happy. So never settle just because you want a mate. And there are plenty of people who will marry you, but not for the same reasons you would marry them.
2 Corinthians 6:14
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?”
You want someone who will Pray with you every single day and night. Who will be sharing the same faith and level of faith with you as you grow to a higher level faith together.
More verses from 2 Corinthians!
Once the Lord sends you the mate you will need and want you will know an it will hit you like a bright light in your face. It will feel like a gentle push, from a loving hand in the right direction. It will be smooth sailing. You…..will….know!
You do have instincts to let you know when you should not do something, well this is the total opposite of that. And it will feel good, like a nice clean warm blanket out of the dryer on a cold chilly day wrapped all around you. All you do after that is just to smile.
These verses will apply to men on how they should think while seeking a Godly woman. As well for the women on what to expect as they wait for a Godly husband too!
More sites with scripture. Pray over all that you read to make sure you are getting sound advice that will guide you as how our GOD wants you to be led. For it is HIS kingdom we seek to enter only through HIS son JESUS are we given the access and the key.
Let the Lord our GOD and HIS word lead you to your GODLY mate for life and be blessed.
“Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.”
