INTRODUCTION
Marriage is the legal relationship between a husband and wife that lasts for a life time. The step taken before going into this journey is very important to prevent pitfall – Gen. 2:21-22. In knowing God’s will, therefore, you do not have to rely on vague hunches and weird rituals. As a child of God, you have His word, it is spirit within you, and His men to guide and counsel you.

 

 

OUTLINE
1. THE RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD FIRST
2. GODLY COUNSEL FOR MARRIAGE

 

 

THE RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD FIRST
Marriage is a creation of God. It all started from Him – Gen. 2:18. God will only guide His own – Jer. 10:23. He will not play a guessing game with His people. He wants us to know and do His will and He is actively involved in revealing it. Therefore, before seeking God’s will in marriage, first have a relationship with Him – Ps. 119:130; Ps. 119:105.

 

Develop your God’s gift and master how God guides your steps – Ps. 85:8. This will reduce stress, give your life meaning and prepare you for eternity – 2 Pet. 1:3-4. You must be found working – Gen. 2:15-18. Marriage is not for lazy people. Marriage is for adults.

 

 

 

GODLY COUNSEL FOR MARRIAGE
God does not want His people to be joined with unbelievers – 2 Cor. 6:14-16; 1 Cor. 6:15-17.

 

 

 

How do we recognise God’s will in marriage?

 

 
A. Through the word of God

Prov.3:5-7.

God has placed His word in our hands so we can have a much more objective set of guidelines to follow than dreams, feelings and impulses. Despite your dreams and conviction, pray to have scriptural backing – Prov. 18:22; Gen. 2:22; Prov. 19:14.

 

 
B. God will work in you to do His will.

He will use circumstances and situations to perfect His will for your life – Rom. 8:28; Phil. 2:12-13.

You must therefore remain sensitive, paying attention to doors He opens and closes to direct your path.

 

 

 
C. Through the counsel of elders or spiritual heads in the church 

Ps. 1:1; Pro. 19:21; Proverbs 11:14; Proverbs 15:22; Proverbs 20:5; Rom. 15:14; Acts. 1:24; Titus 2:3-5.

Passion for sex may influence your hasty decision for self-pleasure, therefore, at that sensitive moment, do not despise Godly counsel from spiritual heads – Judges 14:1-3, Prov. 14:29; Isa. 52:12.

 
D. The environment you are and your peers will also influence your choice.

 

Therefore, keep company with believers and not unbelievers – 1 Cor. 15:33; 1 Sam. 8:5-6.

 

 

 

CONCLUSION
Prayer, pure word of God, worship, fellowship and service for God and right environment of good spiritual nourishment are factors that aid our spiritual sensitivity. Pray for our singles today.
