When they’re young, a lot of guys have a tendency to get in a hurry and get married.
Their hormones have kicked into high gear. They see someone they’re attracted to and immediately fall in love or think they’re in love. But before jumping into a lifelong commitment, some great advice to follow is Proverbs 19:2 (NLT), “Enthusiasm without knowledge is no good; haste makes mistakes.”
Guys, if you want God’s best, then you might want to see what God’s Word has to say about what to look for in a wife before making an impulsive decision to commit your life to someone “till death do us part.” The fear of the Lord, or in other words, respecting and listening to what God has to say, is the beginning of wisdom, and it will bring length of days, riches, and honor (Proverbs 3:13, 16).
So, if you want God’s best when it comes to who you should marry, you need to seek Him first, and go to His Word to get some direction. In the end, you’ll be glad you did!
The Take Away:
Take time to go to the Word of God and find out what it says about husbands, wives, marriage, and family. Start believing God and confessing His Word regarding your future spouse and marriage. Pray this: “Father, I thank You for the amazing wife You have for me. I pray that You lead, guide, and direct my steps and hers so that our paths cross. I thank you for the patience to wait and not get in a hurry and make a mistake. I hear Your voice I’m led by Your Spirit, and I’m confident that Your perfect will is going to be done in my life.”
