| Hello Reader, Welcome again to this Month’s teaching. As a single, I know you are taking advantage of this article, knowing fully well that you will be married very soon. I have been discussing simple but yet very profound steps to take in locating a marriage partner. The ultimate aim is to ensure that the foundation of your marriage is well laid so that all the days of your married life will be days of peace. Previously, we looked at a few steps to take in locating a life partner. Today, I will show you the other steps. Open Your Spiritual Eyes: God is a Spirit, and He communicates with you through your spirit. If you are not alert in your spirit, it becomes very difficult or impossible to catch whatever He has to pass across to you. Thus, ensure your spirit is devoid of rowdiness. It is necessary to free your spirit. The Bible says, The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly (Proverbs 20:27).|
God will always want to give you direction, but He can only do that through your spirit because He is a Spirit (John 4:24). Learn to open up your spirit to hear the direction of God. Do not make the mistake of depending on your own understanding.
It is your responsibility to keep your heart because no one can do that for you, not even God. When you keep it diligently, you will be able to deal with the issues of life (Proverbs 4:23). When you are used to receiving directions from God on other issues of life, it becomes easy when it comes to finding a marriage partner. Establish a Solid Foundation for your Life (Psalm 11:3): Salvation is the foundation for all-round success, including marriage. Establish a quality relationship with God by committing to your spiritual growth. This is done by being committed to studying the Word (Colossians 3:16), filled with the Holy Ghost with evidence of speaking in tongues and studying Christian books on marriage. Focus on God, and the right person will locate you. A godly spouse is one that loves God more than all else – including himself, herself or you! Find out his/her salvation status! Be Productively Engaged in Life (Proverbs 22:29): Find purpose and pursue it. You have a 100% chance of success in marriage if you walk in God’s plan. Have a career, vision, calling or assignment. Develop yourself while in waiting – self-development will make you an asset, not a liability. Do not be too hard or look desperate! If you have nothing, you cannot give out to your generation. Build yourself spiritually, career and mentally; read books, go to school if you need to, attend seminars and volunteer in projects or charity organisations. Explore better options to becoming a better version of yourself. Pursue the desires that God has put in your heart and naturally put your life in order. Be Active in Kingdom Service (Matthew 6:33): Being actively involved in serving God is one sure way to find a godly marriage partner. However, as you serve, focus on God, not on looking for a spouse. Service can be in pursuing your God-given purpose/Kingdom advancement endeavours. Serving God comes with blessings, which includes supernatural marital settlement (Isaiah 34:16) 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!
