Nothing provokes frustration and failure as much as ignorance, it has sent many to the grave. Young people due to domestic pressure, have jumped into marriage trying to flee from domestic pressure at Home, Well these are the things that I learnt from Evangelist Edna that I feel singles should take note of:
1) PRAY FOR GOD’S GUIDANCE: Dear Lord, send me to my soul mate. As a man pray and ask God to lead you to your soul mate as He led Abraham’s servant to get Rebekah for Isaac, and when you find her, love her, for God never intended that women should go about searching for men to marry them.
2) SEEK THE HELP OF OTHERS: Telling others to help is not a sign of weekness, it’s being wise and smart. In fact we expect our closest friends to know what we want. The more trusted friends help us, the better our chances of finding exactly what we want (Gen 24 v 1-67).
3)LOOK FOR THINGS THAT MATTER: He has to be tall, dark and handsome but will He stand up to a father’s responsibility for you? Get an extra job when money is tight or stay faithful while on a business trip? Too many relationships fail because we don’t know what we want and how to look for it.
4) ASK GOD FOR A SIGN: Signs and wonders are still possible today, and God is able to lead us to the desires of our Heart. With supernatural and natural signs to point the way. God can help us find a lifetime lover, but we must look and listen.
5)MARRY SOMEONE WHO GENUINELY LOVES YOU, WHO NEEDS YOU AND CARES FOR YOU: The Man whom you want may not want you, so marry that very person that loves you and cares for you, someone you are fond of, someone you play with, laugh with, someone you can tolerate when offended. He or She must know you and understand you. Someone you love and loves you too, that very person that cares for you. There is somebody that has the ability to make you happy. Whenever He is around you feel better and happy. A man or a woman who cannot love has no business with marriage as marriage is an “Arena of Love”. However in practice, the man’s love for a woman should be greater in order to have a sustainable relationship. This love should be genuine, free from sexual immortality and should not have strings attached.
6) BE WILLING TO WAIT: Time is a gift that helps us prepare ourselves for love and allows us to clearly see the other person’s Heart. Do we want to rush into a relationship that might break our Hearts, or are we willing to wait for true love? Why rush into a relationship that will disorganize and destabilize your life?
Never think that God’s delays are God’s denials, hold on, hold fast, hold out. Patience is genius. At times God uses delays to perfect your miracles, gives you the best and brings you to greatness.
