Finding a godly marriage partner is a delicate and important task. He who finds a wife finds a good thing. Next to Salvation, marital decision is the most important decision you will ever make. It hold the potential in making you joyful or otherwise. It holds the potential in making you fulfill or otherwise.
To find means to discover after a deliberate search. It therefore involves practical steps apart from prayer. That practical step is searching. Just like you take steps when job hunting, and not just sitting down after prayer. You have to be in active partnership with God in this adventure. You must do something to produce your desired result.
1. Finding a godly partner begins with you being godly. You must lay a solid foundation for your life. You must be born again. Get baptized with the Holy Ghost.
2. Be productively engaged in life. Find your purpose in life and do it productively. Develop yourself. If you have nothing, you can share nothing. Explore better options to becoming a better version of yourself. Don’t be lazy.
3. Set your desires and pray about them. No one arrives at a future that he cannot see. Have specifications in mind and pray about it. Don’t be ruled by the physical alone. Let the inner virtues guide you. Two people with a common interest easily flow together.
4. Be active in kingdom service. Seek Ye first the kingdom of God and it’s righteousness and every other thing shall be added unto you. Being actively involved in serving God is one sure way of finding a godly partner. However, focus on God as you serve other than focusing on searching for a marriage partner.
5. Maintain godly standards. Be at the right place at the right time. Develop character. Work on your money management system. Never compromise your standards to please people. Sex before marriage will blind you to the truth. Dress the way you want to be addressed. Work on yourself. Radiate the joy of Christ and be hospitable. Be humorous. Make and keep godly friends. Don’t despise anybody. Let go of pride.
Be sure that you are divinely guided.
