eHarmony by God?
“Search from the book of the LORD, and read: not one of these shall fail; not one shall lack her mate. For My mouth has commanded it, and His Spirit has gathered them.” Isaiah 34:16, NKJV
When I was 25 years old, single and desperately wanting to be married, the Lord encouraged me with this verse. I had been a bridesmaid in five weddings within two years…and by the last wedding, I was ready to meet the man of my dreams, but he was nowhere to be found!
This Scripture gave me great hope! I knew the Lord had put the desire to be married in my heart and I found great comfort knowing that I would not lack my mate. I meditated on every word in this passage and I knew I could trust the Holy Spirit to “gather” me and my husband in the right time.
Voila…when I was 26 years old, I met Jeff Jones, the man of my dreams! Today, 26 years and four kids later, we both say it’s been the best 18 years of our lives. (No, all 26 years have been wonderful!)
If you’re single and waiting on the Lord for your mate…be encouraged that as you trust God, He will gather you together!
“Father, I trust You! Today, I pray for myself (if you are single) or for my friend (the name of your single friend) and I thank You that You are the One who gives us the desires of our hearts and You fulfill those desires. I ask You, by Your Spirit, to order my steps (or the steps of my friend) and gather me with my God-ordained mate (or my friend with his or her mate). In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
