WAIT ON THE LORD!
I have noticed a new trend it seems among some of the single sisters in the church. They are turning to dating services to try and find mates. Sisters our Heavenly Father does not want us resorting to dating services to find a mate. The Word says a man that finds a wife finds a good thing, Sisters we must wait to be found! The worst thing we can do is try to orchestrate our own relationships and marriages. We are supposed to be about the business of the kingdom. I totally understand that once you pass 30 you may feel you will never get married, I totally understand that if you are a single mother you may feel that a brother will never choose you. But keep in mind God has chosen you and he knows how to keep you until your mate comes forth. When we go out and get our own Man he usually turns out to be Mr. Wrong!
And these online dating services are definitely not the answer. Anyone can type in that they are a Christian in a profile online. That does not mean that they actually are a Christian. In my opinion a real Man of God would not be online trying to find his wife. He should be looking at the sisters in his own congregation to see if he finds a wife. Sisters just beautify yourselves with the Word of God, with a quiet, sweet, humble and meek spirit. Then if your mate is going to come he will come. Don’t let your mate walk up and find you being idle and doing nothing looking all desperate! Let your mate be attracted to you because you are busy doing the work of the Kingdom. Let him see you teaching that bible study or working in the nursery. Let him see that you have your own car and that you have it together. Let him see that even though you are a single mother your kids come to church clean and they behave well.
And as much as I know some will not want to hear this, some of us are not called to be wives! Some of us are called to do the work of the kingdom and that is our mission in life. I believe a certain popular minister who is in the process of a divorce is called to be such a one. When you have been married more than once and things have not worked out, the tape needs to be put on rewind. I’m not saying that some people cannot have a successful third marriage that is a possibility. But after the second failed marriage don’t go running into another one. This is the time you need to spend with God and seek his face as never before to find out if indeed he desires you to be married at all. Not being called to be married is a hard pill to swallow for some but I truly believe if we Bind our Will to God’s Will we will be happy if we never get married.
People have many opinions about marriage and mates my opinion is God is not going to tell any of his children to marry a person that will physically abuse them. God knows all and sees all so he knows whether or not this person will go berserk one day and physically abuse you. Sometimes our desire to be married blinds us to some obvious things. Our flesh is screaming for the pleasures of marriage and even though our spirit may be trying to speak the flesh just slaps the spirit down and takes over.
I would rather end up getting married at 40 and staying happily married than to marry at an early age and end up going through marriage after marriage like you go through socks during the week. Marriage is sacred! You don’t get married and then decide “oh this is not working for me”. When you take those vows before God he is paying attention to every word you say. And we need to pay attention to every word God says so we don’t end up getting married to the wrong person!
