Placing our future spouse in God

How can we find the right guy or girl?

This is the question on many single people's mind.

Lately, God has taken me on a spiritual journey to help me understand how that question will one day be answered in my own life.

First, as Christians, we should realize that we will not be doing the finding. We have to let God do the picking.

Also, we should understand that our own decision may not be the decision that God wants for our life.

The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? Jeremiah 17:9

In Proverbs 18:22 the Bible says, "He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the Lord."

I believe this verse gives a key hint to all women...because who finds whom in this verse?

The man finds the wife.

It is becoming more and more acceptable within worldly views for girls to chase after and pursue guys.

In my opinion, godly men do whatever they have to do to get who they truly want, especially when they are seeking a godly wife.

I think that women should pray for a man to find her. When he does, God's hand in the relationship will be clear.

I also think that men should pray to find the woman that God want's for them.

So, although it is acceptable for girls to drop hints that they may be interested in a guy, in my opinion, it is still best to want the guy to make the first move.
