God Is a Perfect Matchmaker

God Is a Perfect Matchmaker

God Is a Perfect Matchmaker

Read First Part Here

There is one important caveat to all of this.

In order to receive the person that God has intended for you, you have to inquire of him and then listen to his instruction. God has many ways of getting us to notice him, but as human beings, we are very good at ignoring his signals and red flags. We get caught up in looks, lust and the initial attraction of a person. Seek God from your heart. Go to him now and start talking to him. Ask him to be available to you. He said those that call upon his name shall be saved.  Call his name.  Don’t call him one time and hang up, either. Go back over and over again until you feel confident he heard and answered your prayer.  God enjoys becoming a part of a marriage that he approves of.  If not, you will have a worldly marriage without the assurance of God’s help, support, and spiritual guidance that every good marriage needs. Therein lies the difference between the two.

God Is A Matchmaker

You cannot see what’s up ahead for your marriage but God can.   In this way, that is why God really is truly the best matchmaker for us.

How He Loves By Noell Riepenhoff

“I don’t have time to maintain these regrets when I think about the way He loves me.” David Crowder, a christian recording artist, inspires me by his motivating words. The quoted song is talking about God’s love and how it never ceases. In my personal life, I am driven to move past what I’ve done and forgive myself because that is what Christ has done for us.

Forgiveness is so beautiful because it releases us from what others have done as well as what we have done. This is one of the most important things to incorporate into a relationship. It is so important to keep Christ in the center of your relationship and marriage. When we become selfish in our relationships we are not bringing glory to God. When I try to take on the task of fixing a problem I have in my relationship, I often fail. I have to rely on God in order for anything worthwhile to get done! John Piper, a christian author and pastor, says that marriage is about keeping a covenant, as Jesus does with his bride, the church. I am going to make a promise to my fiancĂ©and I plan to hold strong to Christ and making Him my center. My marriage will be foremost for Christ’s glory.

My fiancéand I have our struggles, but we are always humbled by the love of God. I am blessed to have a significant other so deeply rooted in Christ. To you who do not have that, I encourage that you turn to God for wisdom. I am praying that you discover you are not alone on this journey. He is with you every step of the way.

Your sister in Christ, Noell
