Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths. Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation;
for you I wait all the day long. – Psalm 25:4-5 ESV
A new relationship begins with a first date and if all is well, will transition into courtship. This is what we wait for, but our prayers should not cease. This is where you take your prayers to another level and seek the voice the God.
In the dating and courtship phases of a relationship, there is much transition. You’re learning about each other. You’re investigating his heart and reflecting on what you really need.
At no point in romance should you release the Holy Ghost from leading you. There are always questions that must be answered and situations that must be discerned.
As much as we would like to get caught up in the carnal side of things, our prayer should always be for God’s will to be done. As much as we might think we know how to approach a romantic relationship, keep your heart open to the voice of God.
The voice of God will…
- Help you discern prospective problems in the relationship
- Give you the wisdom and strength to address any red flags
- Teach you how to minister to the soul of your new love
- Instruct on how to be a spiritual blessing in your relationship
- Guide you in forming healthy relationships with his family and friends
- Speak to your heart and strengthen you when conflict occurs
There is nothing that we go through in life, that God does not understand. All is addressed in the Word of God. The Holy Scriptures is another way that we can know God’s ways and hear His heart. If we study we gain knowledge of the how’s, when’s, where’s, and why’s of life. God will reveal the knowledge we need for the moment.
Wait for the voice of God to give you insight and instruction. It is worth waiting for. The voice of God will give you wisdom more valuable than silver and gold. In her (wisdom) hands are long life, riches and honor. (Proverbs 3:16)
If you’ve been praying a long time for a husband, don’t stop praying when your future husband comes. Relationships will not always be perfect because, quite frankly, people are not perfect. The divorce rate shows that we prove ourselves fallible in choosing the right mate and making love last.
However, the voice of God is greater than our own. His approach to love and relationships is perfect. Let us know and put into practice His ways.
Let God say yes, before you say yes. Let God say no, before you say no. Follow God in His truth and you will be abundantly blessed!
