| Dear Reader, Welcome to another glorious month. I will be discussing some very simple but basic principles, which will help you make the most important decision as it relates to your marriage. The right choice of a life partner, the quality of the courtship, etc., will determine how successful your marriage will be. These and many other issues are what I will be exploring in this series. Nothing in life can adequately substitute the need for a solid foundation. A building is only as good as its foundation. That is why some buildings collapse in spite of their beautiful architectural designs. The Bible says, If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do (Psalm 11:3)? The success of your family in the ultimate hinges on the quality of its foundation. Every worthwhile family begins at the point of locating a marriage partner. It is a thing anyone considering marriage is required to take seriously. It is a very fundamental foundation for the quality of marriage desired, and it begins at the point of finding. However, for you to be found, you have to be looked for. In Proverbs 18:22, the Bible says, Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD. In other words, there must of a necessity, be a time of looking and seeking, before there can be a finding. Seeking involves a diligent search. The underlying prerequisite for finding is seeking. What must you do to make your Seeking Worthwhile? Locate the Word of God and Apply it: God’s Word contains all things that make for life and godliness, including marriage. When the Word of God forms the foundation of your steps, you can be sure of success because the Scripture is the only sure foundation. I want you to know that it is God’s desire to freely give you all things, your desire for a marriage partner inclusive. The Bible says, He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things (Romans 8:32)? However, you need to seek first the Kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you (Matthew 6:33). Keep serving God with joy, gladness, and with a pure heart of love; then, when He finds you faithful, He will add a partner to you. Have a Desire: Some people do not know the kind of marriage they want or the type of spouse they desire; hence, anything goes. Desires are primarily a function of the heart; however, they find expression on the outside and by your actions, they become obvious. What you do not desire, you do not deserve. Therefore, you must be honest with yourself. The Bible says, …the desire of the righteous shall be granted (Proverbs 10:24). That means God is only committed as far as your desire allows Him to.|
Admit your desire for a marriage partner privately and publicly without feeling embarrassed or ashamed. If you desire certain attributes, talent, gift, calling, ministry in your spouse, prayerfully seek it. Do not pretend not to need one when you actually do; admit it before God and man. If an occasion arises for you to declare your stand on the issue, be bold about it. Marriage is honourable; hence, your desire for a marriage partner is not carnal but spiritual if you follow God’s approach to it. Prayer: The Word of God says, Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass (Psalm 37:5). Choosing a life partner is crucial; it is a lifetime decision in which God’s intervention is needed. One major way of ensuring God’s involvement in a matter is by seeking His face in prayers.
The Bible says, Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not (Jeremiah 33:3). He knows what you do not know; He knows the beginning from the end. Therefore, come to Him in prayers and with an open heart. Be confident that He loves you because He knows your end from the beginning and wants the best for you. Be specific in prayers by telling God the kind of partner you want. Identify your God-given vision in life and ask God for a partner that will complement that vision and be confident that, For every one that asketh receiveth… (Matthew 7:8). If you ask in prayers, you will receive. Give Thanks: Having taken the above steps, you must water your prayers with thanksgiving. The Bible says, In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you (1Thessalonians 5:18). Let your faith be intact, and your confession fall in line. Give thanks always if you believe that God has heard your prayers. After giving God thanks, apply patience, and before long, you will see the manifestation, in Jesus name!
|However, it is important to note that your relationship with God must be solid to help you locate the right partner. If you do not have a father and son relationship, you cannot enjoy the blessings. So, if you desire to have such relationship, pray this prayer of salvation with me: Dear Lord Jesus Christ, I come to You today. I am a sinner. Forgive me my sins and cleanse me with Your Blood. I accept You as my Lord and personal Saviour. Make me a child of God today. Thank You for delivering me from sin and satan to serve the living God, and thank You for accepting me into Your Kingdom. Congratulations, you are now born again and a child of God. He loves you and will never leave you nor forsake you. With this, you are guaranteed all-round rest and peace, in Jesus name!
