How do you Know that your partner is the one? My greatest fear is enduring and not enjoying my marriage.
Hi Mandy! In regards to knowing your partner is the one, this differs for every person. However, one thing I would say is be in constant prayer, always asking for the will of God to be done in your life. Pray that He leads and guides your every step. God cares about every aspect of your life! However, not everybody will hear from God concerning their marriage so there is an element of faith involved.
One thing to always remember is Romans 8v28 “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
Enjoying marriage is a choice, and you will ultimately get out what you put in. There will be seasons of enjoyment and harder seasons you will have to endure. You take the good with the bad and you press on! Learning everything you need to learn at every stage along the way.
I’ll address the questions in more detail in future blogs.
Hi Daniel. I have two questions:
1 ~ Some people say they hear from God about the person they are meant to marry. As in, God spoke to them in a dream, personally etc, but what if you don’t hear from God? How do you know if that is the person you are meant to marry? Do you just sit and wait or take a leap in faith?
2 ~ This is something that I am really struggling with. What is the purpose of marriage? Why should I get married? Apart from having children and because God says it’s not good for man to be alone, why do I need to get married? Although I have the desire to get married (marriage not the wedding), I’m struggling with the whole concept of marriage. Hope the questions make sense.
1. I believe that as a Christian we should be spirit led, and Psalm 37v23 states that “The LORD directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives – NLT”. So yes, praying and expecting to hear from God is vital. God can speak through people aswell, which is why seeking counsel is very important! Use inner peace as an indicator, the Holy spirit can prompt us gently, its up to us to take note or ignore. (I will most probably address this question in a future blog)
2. You do not need to get married, its a choice we all have to make. If as you said you have the desire to get married then its something you shouldn’t ignore. The primary purpose of marriage is—fellowship, companionship, and mutual help and comfort. The bible also tells us that two is better than one (Ecc 4v9). Marriage also protects us from sexual immorality (1 Corinthians 7:2). It is a complex topic and the bible has a lot to say about marriage.
I’ve tried to answer your questions as concisely as I can without writing a blog, I hope it helps. Stay tuned, I’ll address them in future posts. God bless!
