God Still Makes Husbands/Wives

Whether you believe this or not, God is still in the business of making wives and husbands for His own children. That Adam blamed Him doesn't mean He's backed out from giving His faithful children the best things in life. 
.
Many false teachers have deceived lots of people into believing that God doesn't make help meet or guide you on whom to marry. Na lie! They'll even tell you that you must find who you like and have God to endorse him or her. That's deception at its peak!
.
Do you want God to give you a good husband or wife? Or you want to find your own specs - tall, dark, rich and handsome; beautiful, endowed, fair and so on? 
.
Let me address Christians here. It is only those who are doing something for God that He can make a help meet for them. If you want God to give you a good wife or husband, what are you doing for Him? 
.
Ever since you gave your life to Christ and you have been attending church well well, wetin you dey do for God? 
.
You're the type that would get late to church, even inside the church you're pinging during sermon, you easily pick quarrels with the ushers or find fault in them for what they're not doing well. Sit down there, Mr/Miss Judge, they're working for God and would definitely get their rewards. 
.
You have a good voice to sing His praise but you're pursing one upcoming secular artist so that you can do 'Collabo' with him and you call yourself a Christian? Sorry, you're just a church goer!
.
Are you the type that warms the bench every Sunday and the only time you even open your Bible is on Sundays? After all, you said God understands! Yes He does understand you're ignorance. You'll call Him and He won't answer you because you do not seek Him with the whole of your heart. 
.
What are you doing for God? You don't need a pulpit to work for God. All you need is a heart that loves Him and that's sold out for lost souls.
.
If you want God to favor you with a faithful husband or a prudent wife, work with Him. This is why I use to tell people, serve God and He will honor you with a good spouse. 
.
God makes good spouses for His children. He may be working on a sister in church A so that she can help a brother in church B who has been fulfilling His assignment in life. If you think dating, cohabitation and the likes will get you a good wife, you are on a long thing! There's no shortcut to receiving blessings from God but there are alternatives to getting things from the devil. 
.
If the process is not godly, the result can never be blessed. And if the foundation is laid on ungodliness or immoralities, the building will collapse when the eventualities of life befalls it.
.
Do you want God to make a help meet for you? Or you want Him to make you a help meet for him? 
.
1. Have a personal and committed relationship with God
.
You might have been attending church for over ten years and God doesn't know you. Does that shock you? Many are only church goers or members because they do not have a personal relationship with God. 
.
Having a personal relationship with God entails that He's your personal Lord and Savior. You have a walking relationship with Him. You have been baptized of the water and of the Spirit and you're doing His blessed will on earth - righteousness and holiness. 
.
2. Serve Him with the whole of your life
.
To serve God is not the same thing as serving a church. You may be advancing the cause of a church that is not Kingdom seeking and you'd think you're serving God in there.
.
Any church that's not sold out to evangelism, both rural or city is not promoting His cause on earth. 
.
You can serve God by taking it upon yourself to preach the gospel, intercede for lost souls and follow Jesus as a disciple - not a church member or a mentee of a man of God whom God doesn't recognize his existence. 
.
3. Trust Him wholeheartedly
.
You know why? Many people will give you a thousand and one options to choose from even in the body of Christ. Some men of God may even tell you that they have someone for you, that's not a crime though. But it's a tragedy if you do not allow God speak to you before you jump into such offer. Don't be desperate! 
.
See, it's not easy to trust in the Lord because people would think you're a fool, or you're a slowpoke. But if you trust Him with all your heart and you do not lean on to your own understanding and you acknowledge Him in all your ways, I tell you, He will direct your path to that person He has made for you. I have wonderful testimonies of such people. 
.
4. Be patient 
.
It's easy to build a mud house but it'll take a while to build a skyscraper. You can only get the best from God when you walk with Him in patience. After all, it takes patience to marry right. 
.
Have you given up on God or you have been made to believe that 'Heaven helps those help themselves?' That's a lie from the pit of hell. Be a child of God. Serve Him. Trust in Him also and He will honor you with the husband or wife He has made for you.
