When seeking God’s guidance, you’re letting God lead the way. His way is better than making choices on your own. As Matthew 6:33 states: But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you. Have intimacy with God, because for too long we’ve depended upon the flesh to do what only the Spirit can do. We need God’s guidance to instruct us to make the right decisions when it comes down to our livelihood and the people we want to spend the rest our lives with. When entering into a relationship, seek God’s guidance to see if the person you are praying for line up to the will of God. Sometimes Gods answer is “NO” or “NOT RIGHT NOW”, take the No’s and Not Right Now’s into a positive perspective and know that God is trying to save you for someone better and just for you…………….
Our faith involves action, participation, and being honest about what you’re up to can lead people to ask why you choose to spend your time that way. More specifically, if someone happens to bring up the subject of church or asks if you believe in anything, be straight with them. We believe in God, our Father in Heaven; we believe the world fell to sin and was saved through death and resurrection of Jesus, the Son, we believe the Holy Spirit and His presence in every moment of our lives, we believe we can have eternal life and find unity with God by believing in Him and accepting Him as our Savior. Where the conversation will go from there is unknown, and that’s ok, perhaps you can in invite the person for more discussion, but it won’t be the end of the world if they say no. Strive to be respectful of your friend’s circumstances and don’t try to force the issue if they don’t want to talk. Even during a casual night out, ask the Holy Spirit to give you a sensitivity of someone’s need to hear about your faith, for you to offer advice or when to simply speak the truth………..
Learning to enjoy your own company will not only serve you well in life in general, but can make you more appealing to others. Whether you believe it or not, enjoying yourself on your own transcend is a sense of well-being that will translate to contentment that will attract other people. Instead of asking God for what you want, ask Him to prepare you for the blessing He has for you. Be open and trust God that He knows what you need and when you need it. Be patient with yourself, God, and the process. Remember that Gods’ timing is perfect and not our timing. One of the most difficult times is being willing to wait for God. We become so impatient and take matters into our own hands. When you wait, not only is your faith being tested, but your motives undergo purification as well. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing (James 1:3)
When you date,date with a purpose because too much is at stake. Treat your date as a subject to listen to and understand and appreciate; not an object to experiment, to conquer, ad satisfy your desires. Pace your relationship and take it step by step, don’t go into a free fall. Date someone who takes sexual purity seriously; someone with wise advice who will pray for and with you and help hold you accountable to high standards. When you sense the temptation coming before things start to get out of control, RUN! Learning to take control of your sexual purity is when overcoming temptation is a process because you need a plan……..
