(Note: If you are a regular reading of my content, you can probably skip down to point 2 because the intro and point 1 of this article are a review of points I’ve made before.)
When I use the phrase, “the one,” I’m not talking about a soul mate. I’m not saying that there is only one perfect divinely ordained person for everyone and you can thus marry someone who is not the one for you. What I am referring to is simply the person God planned for you to marry.
Is it possible to meet the right person that God wants you to be with but to meet this person at the wrong time?
Here are 4 possible reasons it feels like God led you to believe you and someone would be together but then it felt like God changed his mind later on.
Here are 4 signs God is about to use someone’s sins for your good.
1 Peter 2:21-22
I’m posting this video on Christmas Eve, so I thought it only right to focus on Jesus’ incarnation. But I also know many of you read these articles for biblical relationship advice. So in this article I want to apply the doctrine of the incarnation to how it affects a Christian’s ability to have a godly relationship.
Why would God let you date someone if he knows the future and thus already knew you two would not end up getting married? Here’s 3 possible answers to that question.
Ah, sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, offspring of evildoers, children who deal corruptly! They have forsaken the Lord, they have despised the Holy One of Israel, they are utterly estranged. Why will you still be struck down? Why will you continue to rebel? The whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint. From the sole of the foot even to the head, there is no soundness in it, but bruises and sores and raw wounds; they are not pressed out or bound up or softened with oil. Your country lies desolate; your cities are burned with fire; in your very presence foreigners devour your land; it is desolate, as overthrown by foreigners.” (Isaiah 1:4-7)
Here are 4 things God will do when a nation turns from him.
Who will win the election? Who does God want me to marry? What does this bad report from the doctor mean? Why did my ex break up with me? How will the economy affect me and my family? What if the person I did not vote for becomes president? When will God show me my calling?
Life is full of so many questions. Every day brings new concerns, new issues, and new tests for our faith in Jesus as his followers. While God does care about the details of our lives, while our individual choices certainly do have a good and bad consequences, and while we are not called to just stick our head in the sand and ignore the issues we see all around us, as Christians, ultimately God always expects us to remember his sovereignty so we might fully trust him.
So here are 3 signs God is saying, “Trust my sovereignty!”
Here are 4 common signs God will use to tell you to fear him more.
Satan is not God’s opposite. God is sovereign in every way and is in complete control over everything, including Satan. Anything Satan does, God allows. God is eternal; Satan is a created being and will be thrown into the lake of fire for eternity at the appointed time (Revelations 20:10).
