How to connect to your Godly spouse.

How to connect to your Godly spouse.

Hear this, “Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD”-Proverb 18:22. Wife or husband needs to be found. Wife or husband is a good thing. Whosoever finds Wife or husband obtains favour of the LORD. Whether you are a man or woman, you need to find your spouse.


The Holy Spirit through Apostle Paul says, “Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband” 1Corinthians 7:2. If you are a man, you need your own wife. If you are a woman you need your own husband.


You may ask, how do I go about it? The word of God- BIBLE has the answer. “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?”-Matthew 7:7-11


When you are ready for marriage, ask God to give you your own wife or husband. He says, “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.”-Jeremiah 33:3. He promises to answer you and show you who to marry.


You don’t need to worry and be tensed up. God says to you, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”-Matthew 11:28. Rest in marriage I believe. For He says, “Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”-Philippians 4:6.

You may say, “I’ve been praying”. Yes, you may have been praying amiss or without action. Hear the word of God, “Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.”-James 4:3. How can somebody pray amiss? When you set a standard for yourself and you are praying for God to do your wish; are you not praying amiss?


 

Please be neutral when you go to God in sensitive issues like marriage. He knows the end right from the beginning. He knows the flesh of your flesh and bone of your bone. He knows whom He prepared for you from the beginning. You can’t change God.


What action can someone take? You want to marry? Be jovial, humble, neat, accommodating and peaceful. Why not smile whenever you see someone you admire as your future wife or husband? What is wrong with that? Get closer to the person and initiate conversation if possible. If possible, ask for his/her phone number and text him or her. Sentence like, how are you today? I hope fine; is okay. Go nearer to the person and greet him or her always. Please don’t go to the place the person is staying. 


There is nothing wrong if you decide to exchange pleasantries. Don’t rush saying anything; let your actions speak for you. Please lower your standard. Some ladies have set standards that are intimidating their prospective suitors. Some men are so pompous that many ladies hate them. Don’t make yourself incommunicado. 


Therefore, pray with someone who can agree with you in prayers. The scripture says, “Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven”.- Matthew 18:19.                  

  

                                             Character is everything. Many people are observing your character towards others. How do you respond when you are hurt? Many years ago, my friend was looking for somebody to marry. We engaged one lady in conversation; in the process of the conversation, the lady made a remark that made my friend to lose interest in her. 


Your attitude matters a lot. Be thankful and respectful. Show appreciation for every magmanous act to you. If somebody gives you something, don’t look at the object, quality and quantity of the thing; just appreciate the person.


If you want to connect to someone for marriage, if you finish reading this article, ask me a question. I assure you, you will marry within six months even if you are above the age.
