If you really think about it, we spend a good chunk of our lives preparing for the person we will spend the rest of our lives with. As we get to the age of young adulthood and marriage, many people are yearning for this someone to come join them for the rest of their lives. The bible tells us that we need to prepare for the person that God has for us.
Matthew 6:33 - But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
At the beginning of our lives God prepares us for the person we will spend the rest of our lives with. Everything we do up to this point in our lives will help us prepare for our future spouse. Whether it is dating someone in high school or God teaching us to have patience, all things we have been taught from God over the years will be very helpful in the process of preparing for our future spouse.
In 2 Peter 3:18 it says "But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and forever! Amen." And in Proverbs 13:20, it says "Walk with the wise, become wise, for a companion of fools suffer harm."
As we wait for our future spouse, we have to also wait on God's timing and plan. God has had a master plan for each and every one of us even before we became life. This being said, waiting is hard especially if all your friends are getting married and have boyfriends or girlfriends and you don't have any of it. But just know that the time you have spent without a boyfriend or girlfriend and going to weddings has helped prepare you for your future spouse.
Jeremiah 29:11 says "'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'"
When waiting for that special someone and going through hard times, we can pray for that special someone that will join us for the rest of our lives.
Praying for your future spouse is part of preparing, for you and for your special someone. Having a tight bond with God and continuing to talk to him through this hard time of waiting will all be worth it in the end. God has had this special someone picked out for us our whole life, and we finally get to meet this person and grow in faith with them!
