How to Use the Holy Spirit as Your Matchmaker

Description

When you’re in a serious dating relationship, don’t overlook the importance of praying for God’s will and letting the Holy Spirit guide you.

But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all truth (John 16:13. NIV)

When you’re in a serious dating relationship, don’t overlook the importance of praying for God’s will, letting the Holy Spirit guide and direct you. Here are a few practical questions to consider before marriage.

•  “Is this person my best friend?”

•  “Do we have similar beliefs and values? Does this person help me grow closer to God?”

•  “How do my family and friends feel about the relationship?”

•  “Am I willing to commit my life to this person?”

•  “Do I want this person to be a parent to my children?”

•  “Does he or she have some unacceptable habits that I think I’ll be able to change someday?” (Believe me, you won’t!)

•  “At the same time, do I recognize and accept his or her flaws and idiosyncrasies?” (If not, it’s not real love; it’s infatuation.)

If you haven’t been able to say “yes” to these questions, maybe you need to slow down and give the relationship more time. Maybe you’re headed toward choosing second best, rather than God’s best for your life, and you need to back off. Spend more time in prayer, asking God to reveal His plan for you. His plan is always best.
