3Ps That Enables God To Guide You On Whom To Marry.

When it comes to choosing a life partner, two things are involved: you can allow God to guide you or you go ahead and make decisions yourself without God’s guidance. That latter is more risky than the former.
.
Many people had neglected God’s guidance only to involve Him when there’s fire on their mountain. It’s better to seek Him before there’s problem than to seek for His help when there’s more problems.
.
Trusting God for a partner is one thing and doing the right thing while waiting on Him is another thing. If God must guide you on whom to marry, aside the fact that you mustn’t lean on your understanding, there’s more to be done.
.
Many people claim to be trusting God for a spouse but they’re really doing nothing about it or they’re doing something against it. There are things to do if God must guide you, you won’t just sit and fold your hands doing nothing while waiting on Him.
.
Here are the 3Ps you need to do for God to guide you. Does it end in “I don’t date, cohabit or scheme out plans for myself?” No, you must also do the following.
.
1. Pray
.
It’s often said that prayer is the key that opens all doors or it is a means of communication between man and God. But beyond that, how often do you wait to hear Him speak back to you about what you told Him?
.
God doesn’t take much long to answer one’s prayer if it’s said according to His will. Most times most of us don’t train ourselves to hear Him speak back to us when we pray. If you pray accordingly, He will tell you something about the situation.
.
When you pray, He will either show you or say something about your marital life. Be sensitive to know what He’s saying and ensure you live a life of purity.
.
Are you praying or you’re nagging God about your needs? Do you tell Him to allow His will be done or you want Him to endorse your will (James 4:3)? Check your motives for praying, maybe that’s why God’s not answering.
.
2. Be Patient
.
It takes patience to marry right and impatience will lead you into making poor choices maritally. That you seem to be ready, driving a car, having a good source of income, mature, living in a good apartment and all of that doesn’t mean you should choose anyone.
.
That the person you’re considering as the potential spouse have all you wanted doesn’t mean they’ll be the right person God wanted you to marry.
.
If God must guide you on whom to marry, you must exercise lots of patience. That you’re running out of age doesn’t mean God is late, He can only make all things beautiful in its time when you patiently wait on Him. Yours is just to pray and be patient.
.
3. Persevere
.
Maybe you have been praying for some time now and you have been waiting for so long, I’ll encourage you not to give up on God. What you get cheaply, you probably won’t appreciate it better.
.
That you’re ready for a relationship leading to marriage doesn’t mean God is ready for you according to His own timing. Why don’t you persevere a little?
.
The years of your praying and patience will soon be rewarded if only you add more effort and wouldn’t give up at the verge of your marital breakthrough.
.
The best is always obtained when you persevere more, it’s really not easy to do but it’s highly rewarding. Have you been praying, waiting and have persevered for God to guide you on whom to marry? Don’t fret or become unhappy. You can’t pray too much or wait too long when God is interested in your matter.
.
Ensure you say the right prayers and don’t compare yourself with anyone. Remember, no two lives are the same even if they came out from the same womb. Though He may tarry but He will surely bring it to pass. May you never miss it in your marital choices in Jesus name.
