TOPIC: TRUST GOD FOR THE APPROPRIATE MARRIAGE PARTNER
4 Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
5 Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
7 Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
TEXT: PSALM 37:4-7
KEY VERSE: Proverbs 19:14 - House and riches are the inheritance of fathers: and a prudent wife is from the LORD.
Pray fervently and persistently with patience for His gift of marriage partner. Have faith. If ye who are evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask Him. Have confidence, He will give you a marriage partner that will satisfy your heart because the Bible says, if a son shall ask any of you that is a father, give me bread, will he give him a stone?
If he shall ask for fish, will he give him a serpent? If ye being evil know how to give the good things that your children ask for, how much more will your heavenly Father give you the exact thing that you ask for? Have confidence in God, He knows even what you need more than you do. Unto Him that is able to do exceedingly abundantly above what we ask or think. Believe Him, He will do it.
Your parents can leave wealth for you but don’t rely on them for the choice of a wife or husband. As far as marriage partner is concerned, it is from the Lord. It is the Lord that sees a man’s heart. It is God that sees into the future. It is God that gives a prudent wife.
Therefore, have full confidence in Him who knows the thoughts that He is thinking towards you – thoughts of peace, to give you a future and a hope, to give you an expected end.
Go about serving God; go about doing good and living the righteous life and God will give you the desire of your heart. Adam went about doing His work and God brought the exact thing his heart was sighing for as he saw it in the animals. God brought a wife to him. Go and serve Jesus, God will bring a husband to you. Go about serving the Lord.
Sometimes you may say, “My hope is past. Can it happen again? I don’t think so”. Sarah said so, but not before God. Follow God! He is a rewarder! Fret not yourself about those that prosper in their way, those that make evil connections, who frame up dreams and visions and know how to entice men. Some even use their body to entice fellow Christians to marry them. Don’t bother but hold yourself. When the Lord comes you will know. Be peaceful and be patient. When you pray, wait for God.
Thought for the day: Wait on the Lord for your marriage partner.
Song for the day: O yes He answers prayers...
Bible reading for the day: Jeremiah 25-26; 2 Timothy 3
