Why is choosing a life-time partner “through the eyes of God” so crucial?
by Tamra Brathwaite
- You may have many potential spouses but there is only one who will be properly equipped, faithful and effective in ensuring that your marriage remain Christ centered. There is only one who is fully prepared to help you become the greatest man/ woman you can be on earth or bring out the very best in you! It is therefore necessary to choose prayerfully and ask “God your will be done, not mine!”
- There are wolves in sheep’s clothing. If you don’t choose with your heart, ears and eyes open, seeking God’s wisdom, you may be settling to be the craftsmanship in the devil’s workshop. “Not everyone who says, Lord, Lord will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.” (Matthew 7:21) Therefore not all who proclaim the Name of Christ know Him! Be vigilant because you just might be marrying the devil himself! Pray “Lord give me eyes for the person who if joined in marriage with me will bring out the most for your glory! Help me to know the difference between the strange woman/evil man and the righteous, virtuous man/woman.”
