If you are looking for a man because you are lonely and want to fill a void – that void is reserved for Jesus Christ only.
If God sees fit, He will place an exceptional man in your path; at the right time and in the right place and circumstance. This man will be equipped to help you serve Jesus Christ to the best of your ability, help you go deeper in your faith, teach you, guide you and give you wisdom.
God won’t send you a reliable man if you’re bored and want someone to fill in the gaps. He wants to be put in the place of those gaps and help teach you and prepare you before any of that takes place. He wants to be put first in your life and before any of the dreams and plans you may have for yourself:
“Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” - Psalm 37:4 (ESV)
In His perfect timing, (and that’s not necessarily when you want) He will come through but that does not mean that you should go out and search for it yourselves. Who better to play match-maker than the one who “-Searched the heart, and examined the mind.” - Jeremiah 17:9 (MSG). I promise that He will know who exactly will fit the other half of your puzzle.
One piece of scripture that I do want to remind you of is the following;
"The man who finds a wife finds a treasure, and he receives favour from the LORD." - Proverbs 18:22 (NLT)
I love this particular version of this piece of scripture as it distinctively says ‘The MAN’ not, ‘The Girl’, or ‘The Really Desperate Girl’, BUT ‘The man’ who finds a wife, finds treasure in her. Ladies, HE will come to YOU! Stop looking! Relax, so many of us women are willing to put our trust in God in every other aspect of our lives yet when it comes to who we date, we want to take it into our own hands and orchestrate it ourselves. This is a mentality I want to see less of this year, and I pray that my sisters will just surrender that part of their lives to God. He knows what is best for us and will go above and beyond what we ask for - He will surely bless us with a great abundance in not only our lives in general but our love lives too!
As an extra reminder, there is no better relationship than the one you’re already in, with the Lord.
Let go girls, and let God.
