Gods way of dating
It gives them unrealistic expectations about romance and marriage.
Relationships should be easy, after all, if you find the one God created just for you.3.
I’m not saying you have to start off as “just friends,” but you definitely need to end up as best friends.*Keep an eye out for any major warning signs (dishonesty, abusive tendencies, etc.).*Make sure you have some kind of realistic timeline.
Don’t spend months (or years) in a relationship that has no clear direction.
Sometimes He will say "no" or "not now"; keep that in mind as you seek guidance from the Holy Spirit in your friendships and other relationships.
Remember Proverbs 3:5-6, which says, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.
He simply compares married life to single life and leaves the choice to them. But I do think there is a more Scriptural, common sense way to approach this issue.
Yet I often here church people saying things like, “I’ll marry if it’s God’s will,” or “I’m waiting for the one God has chosen for me.” Are we trying to be more spiritual than the Bible? Keep these things in mind: God will not choose for you, but He will guide you in finding a good match.
We've compiled some of the most common dating questions here and will definitely be adding more as we write them, but if you have a more specific question about relationships and situations in your life, please feel free to send us your question through our Q&A page.
My answer begins with two points: *I really don’t believe God chooses our spouse for us.
*I also don’t believe it’s realistic to think there’s only one person in the entire world you are meant/allowed to marry.
In other words, I think the question is a bit misguided. I know many Christians believe God will choose a spouse for us.
But I believe this way of overspiritualized thinking wreaks havoc on the lives of Christian singles:1.
