Are you asking yourself if the person you’re in a relationship with is the right one? Are you looking to settle down and wanted to make sure that it is really him/her that you want to spend your lifetime with? Or you are engaged and still in doubt if you are in the right situation. Today let see some biblical principles that could help you decide and help you achieve the most important stage of a man’s life. The Marriage. Who would know the best for you except God.It is always with His Divine will that things are happening. Let us see some love stories from the Bible and get the signs that the Lord is giving us for us to know the truth in finding the perfect person for us.
The story of Adam and Eve
The very first love story on Earth, We know that God saw Adam in his loneliness and said“It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and then closed up the place with flesh. Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. Genesis 18, 21-22.
Remember that God is thinking about your happiness to love and being loved. God brought Eve to Adam. Man should be strong to temptation all the time for his wife. Adam and Eve committed sin of eating the fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Eve first ate the fruit so she committed the first sin but we may noticed that God asked for Adam, But the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you?”(Gen.3:9) followed by two questions “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?”. God is all knowing God, he knew it that the couple violated the rules even before asking but God first talked to Adam even if Eve sinned first, This means that when it comes to relationship, God has a high confidence that men could fight the temptations for them to have a meaningful relationship. Husband should rule over his wife for the good of the family. Adam and Eve were drove out of Eden. Adam loved Eve even despite the hardships.The blueprint of God for man is not to suffer but they ended up in opposite way because of the sin. Imagine their life if they have not sinned. All their needs are in Eden, no need to work for a living but despite the hardship Adam never left Eve.
Find someone who will not leave you through good times and bad because of love. The one that can stand firm in every temptation.
The story of Rebecca and Isaac
So they called Rebekah and asked her, “Will you go with this man?”
“I will go,” she said.Genesis 24:58
Rebecca is certain that she will go with the servant of Abraham with the mission of finding a wife for Abraham’s son Isaac. Rebecca never met Isaac but she is willing to be his wife because she knew that it is the will of God. How did Rebecca know it? She believed in the testimony of the servant and she have faith in God that she will have a very good love story. A beautiful woman and a virgin will not easily say yes to the person she have not seen her entire life. She just followed what is right, that leads to the fulfillment of God’s promise to Abraham. Isaac is a responsible son. He honor his father believing that a blessing from a father is important, in our present time i know its still happening for some other part of the world that the parents will decide of who will be their children’s husband or wife, but for me it is very difficult to follow because we are falling in love with the person we like, but Isaac just followed his father. The consent and the blessing of the parents especially the father is very important for a successful married life. “So she became his wife, and he loved her”..Genesis 25:66
If you feel that your parents is not in favor of your relationship better think!
The story of Jacob and Rachel
So Jacob served seven years to get Rachel, but they seemed like only a few days to him because of his love for her.Genesis 29:20
Jacob was in love with Rachel that he is willing to wait 7 long years just to marry her, and served another 7 years for the sake of love. A very long period of time would seemed like only few days to those are purely in love. They will bear the hardship because it is not the right time for it. Jacob worked a total of 14 years without wage for the love of Rachel, Amazing! Well we know that Israel came from this couple.
If you really love a person you will do everything you can to win her/him regardless of waiting too long
The story of Joseph and Mary
When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife. Matthew 1:24
Joseph with some hesitation had in mind to divorce Mary quietly. But God will not allow that the Messiah would not be sent to Earth for the Salvation of mankind. Joseph thought of a public disgrace in the part of Mary. To love is to also love in the middle of controversy, He respect Mary until she gave birth to Jesus. He protected the mother and son in times of danger when they escaped from Herod. He took charge of the welfare of the child for he know that this will be the fulfillment of the law. A good man is a man of God. Taking full acknowledge of the responsibility on his shoulder, Joseph courageously stand as a biological father of the Messiah even if it would mean a loss of son. He never left Mary and became a good father to Jesus.
The person who love is the person who is ready to face the consequences of his action of choosing what is good in the sight of God.
