God expects from us. He says ask and you will receive
whatever you need, seek and the door will open. Yes you’ve
been praying especially for a good wife or husband but what
actions have you taken. Know something about a leap of
faith? He or she won’t magically come, you have to take
action and prepare yourself.
Here is how. First, the only reason you should date anyone is
for marriage. However, probably you are already dating but is
it for marriage? Why are you dating him or her? And may be
you re still asking God for ‘the one.’ so how should God
respond to that?
Secondly, before getting involved with anyone, you should have
your finances in place. For the guys, you know you should pay
dowry…right? You are the provider. How are you gonna own
up to that responsibility? Where will you take her, to your
mum’s house or are you waiting to inherit? For the ladies, you
also need to support him. Have your finances in place.
Third, go social. You’ve been a workerholic locked up behind
your desk. Will he or she drop from heaven to your desk? Or
probably you are checking out your workmates or clients.
That’s not advisable. Trying going to social events; weddings,
thanksgiving, church, adventure. And also try not forming
temporary wrinkles on your face. A little smile is welcoming.
Fourth, change your wardrobe. How about you dress your age
and your body. Your dressing says alot both for the guys and
the ladies. Its the first thing someone will notice even at a
distance and may start judging. Its an impression. And
somehow shows maturity and responsibility.
Fifth,to get the best you have to be the best. Why should God
entrust one of His creatures to you if He sees you don’t
deserve he or him. You cannot be equally yoke. You must
have direction in life. How you present yourself will depend
On the kind of person you attract.
Finally, know your role. You are to love her as Christ loved
the church. You are to stay faithful. You are to be a provider.
Its the man’s duty to be teachable and firm at the same time.
So are you ready to accommodate someone else in your life,
are you ready to be faithful, to be a provider?
If you have all of the above then she/he will come by soon. If
not, that how you prepare. We always prepare our fields and
plant before the rains. That’s what you should be doing.
That’s action. That’s faith in action.
