      “The Perfect Match”

      Prov. 11:5 The righteousness of the perfect shall direct his way: but
      the wicked shall fall by his own wickedness.

      When do you know that you have found your mate? The first issue is,
      what does God say about this person? This is why it’s so important to
      stay sexually pure and Spiritually minded before you begin to date a
      person. If you nurture your relationship with God beforehand, then you
      will be able to hear him about the person you are interested in. If you
      are involved with this person sexually, then you will not know whether
      they are from God or the devil because you have already become ONE with
      them. I know many preachers and pastors say that there is no match made
      in heaven, but that is a lie! I would not want any mate that wasn’t
      design by God for me. Why would God custom build Eve for Adam and not
      make a mate for you? The bible says in ALL thy ways acknowledge him and
      he WILL direct your path. It does not exclude marriage from that, but
      he said in ALL thy ways! There is no scripture to back up that “no
      match made in heaven” slogan because God desires to lead and guide us
      in EVERY area of our lives. And how in the world could we use our minds
      to choose a life long spouse? I believe this is why divorce is so
      prevalent among believers now. We are choosing based on chance and luck
      or our feelings and lust instead of hearing what God says about it. I
      am convinced that God will not let a “Good Man” find a bad wife if he
      is living right before him. And I am convinced that a “Good Wife” will
      not be subject to chance when she marries because God has custom made
      her for someone. God is more detailed than that and there is a person
      that is created to match you! That’s how big I feel God is and you
      cannot tell me that he allows us to blindly enter into a relationship
      with the wrong person! God says he delights in giving “good things” to
      his children, so if you ask for a perfect match will he not give that
      you? Of course no one is perfect, but they can be “perfect” for you!

      The most important thing before marrying anyone is to make sure you
      are secure in who you are. You must find your purpose in God and your
      place in the Kingdom of God to be a good candidate for marriage. If you
      have not tapped into your God given potential prior to a marital
      commitment, then you may suffer turmoil in your relationship trying to
      find yourself while you take care of your mate. That is what Paul was
      saying to the church at Corinth. 1Cor. 7:8 Marriage is a good thing,
      but if you can wait until you mature as a saint of God, it would be
      better. Men, you cannot be a good husband if you don’t know who you
      are! Women, you cannot be a help meet if you cannot even help yourself!
      This is another reason why it’s so dangerous to play sexual and
      emotional games while dating. If you get too close, you will be blinded
      by lust and attraction and you will not be able to hear what God is
      saying. This person may be the devil in disguise. How can we see the
      future? We cannot! We must rely totally on God and God will be faithful
      to speak to us if we know how to hear him. But if we aren’t secure in
      ourselves then we will jump at the first thing that makes us feel
      better about who we are. And my friend, that’s God’s position! Until
      you get to the point where God can make you feel good about who he made
      you to be, you should not even consider marrying. People like to
      have fun with the opposite sex and date haphazardly, but that’s a
      dangerous game. If you dance close to the fire, you will get burned.
      Your destiny and purpose can be tragically hindered by hooking up with
      the wrong person. So, my single believers, learn the voice of God
      before you become subject to the voice of a bad choice.
