Watching and waiting are both biblical commands, but they are not quite the same thing. Waiting is when there is nothing left to do but trust and remain faithful for God to act in his timing.
Wouldn’t it be nice if God just told you, “Yup, that’s your future spouse,” or, “Nope, that person is not the one”? While God usually doesn’t reveal the future to us, by helping us apply his word, he usually does help us know what we should pursue and what we should not pursue.
Some men act inconsistent because they are players and they want to keep you guessing. Some men act inconsistent because they are inconsistent in general, always flip-flopping on every decision they make.

Some signs are obvious that a man is not trustworthy: not doing what he says, pushing your moral standards, saying what he knows you want him to say, etcetera.
Here are 4 subtle signs that often mean a man might be interested in you and has been thinking about you lately.
Are you being too judgmental? Are your standards too high? Will you always be single if you don’t compromise on your spiritual requirements for a spouse?
Or are you being too risky by giving someone a chance who is showing signs of immaturity? Are you ignoring God’s command to guard your heart because you are trying to be too nice to people that you should just reject?

And while the man is the pursuer, this does not mean you will get to sit there and do nothing while your future husband does all the hard parts of making this relationship come into existence.
Fear is a focus on an unwanted outcome in the future. Fear occurs because you are worried about experiencing a pain you don’t want to experience or not experiencing a pleasure you do want to experience.
