Your (Future) Marriage: Chase God, Not Just a Bod
If you're a Christian single man or woman with a desire to find a Godly spouse, what do you need to know?
Above anything else, you must pursue someone who has their priorities straight now.
Ask yourself these questions when meeting someone who may be a person of interest:
- What do they chase now?
- Who has top priority in their life now?
- What are their personal standards?
- Can I see this person being the Godly father or mother of my future son or daughter?
- Is there evidence of a true walk with God?
- Have I actually seen/heard them pray/communicate with God? (Big key to intimacy!)
And I love this question that Lucretia Noble, wife of Pastor Perry Noble, came up with.
A Christian mother who was worried sick about her young adult daughter kept telling me, "I just wish a great Christian guy would come along for "K". Please just join with me in believing for this, for her..."
Well, only one problem. K dropped into church occasionally on Sundays but she lived like the devil most of the time. Christian guys (the ones who are the real deal) aren't looking to meet and marry girls like K. They are looking for young women who have a real walk with God.
When my husband met me, one of the things that immediately attracted him to me was that God showed me two things about him through prayer that I could not have possibly known otherwise. It got his attention in a BIG way. He knew without a doubt it was God. Through a supernatural word he was assured that I was a young woman of prayer, and that was a very big deal to him. He always said that when he can't get through to me on something -- he knows who will! Since I'm a person of prayer, he just asks God to tell me, and He always does.
Knowing your future mate has a strong walk with God is priority one for a Christian marriage. Be sure you're chasing God, not just a bod.
