There are two choices in life that are the most important choices you will ever make.
The most important: Choosing Jesus Christ as your Savior.
The second most important: Choosing a Mate.
In the book of beginning Genesis chapter 24 is the beautiful story Isaac and Rebekah. The father of faith Abraham sends a trusted servant to find “The One” for his son Isaac, Isaac the promised one. God made good on his promise to Abraham to give him a son and through him many would come, A Great Nation would be born and also the blessings of God.
As we read the story some very important Principles are found. It is interesting to me that God only uses about 31 verses of scripture to describe how everything came to be “creation” and when he describes how we are to find a mate he uses 67………. Do you think he is trying to tell us something about the importance of this subject? I think so. Here are four things to take notice of,
The first thing to do when looking for a mate is: Pray (v.12)
The second: Watch (v13-21)
The third: Turn
The fourth: walk through (v.67)
It works well when we ask God to reveal His choice. One of the obvious problems is waiting and watching when we fail here we end up in a wrong relationship and here are a few of the wrong kinds relationships.
Crowbar relationship: Always pushing and pulling against God, His Plan, His principles, His word, and having the idea he will change his mind, so I can be forgiven later but right now I am going to do what I want to.
Caveman relationship: Good at killing things and dragging you around.
The Bad Taco relationship: Hot and spicy, but leaves you bloated and tired. I know better, but eat it anyway.
Romeo & Juliet: Hasty and emotional – Always running ahead- Always dramatic- Always ends in death of the relationship. The relationship is based deception, not to each other, but to everyone else- Parents, Families, and Friends.
When looking for “The One” take time, ask God then watch what can happen when you don’t get in a hurry. And thats the way I see it in my market.
