Week 1 - May I Believe God for a Spouse?

Good question. Before I begin with this series, I want to make sure that it is understood that a spouse is not the answer to all things. God is.

There are many teachings on faith and that is wonderful for every believer. Yet, when it comes to the single person's desire for a spouse, there is not as much targeted information available.

Does admitting to wanting a spouse make you feel like a desperate single? It shouldn't. God initiated male/female relationships with presenting Eve to Adam in the beginning.

So what can a born-again single person expect in regard to believing for and receiving a spouse? Hebrews 13:4 states, "Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: .." That verse doesn't stop there. "...but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge." That verse tells us that God is not against marriage. He calls it honorable. That verse also tells us that God is not pleased with the Christian single conducting their life in an other-than-honorable manner where the bed is concerned. Honorable according to God not man.


Some may think that God has lost touch with things. But, seeing how He was first on the scene "creator", I would say that some humans have lost touch with God. Not a problem though, that is why Jesus was sent. To bring us back in touch with God.

I like what Genesis 2:18 says, It is not good that the man should be alone. What, then, is God's answer to the not good? Something good, a wife for Adam.

Psalm 34:10 and Psalm 84:11 show a promise of God that you will surely be interested in. "but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing." "...the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly."
We'll get into this further the next time.

The information in this series is from my book, "Single and Wanting to Be Married, Is There Anything Too Hard For The Lord"

Check out the book corner. Single and Wanting to be Married.. is available. Lots of the Word of God on the topic.

Many single adults look forward to finding that special someone. The pressure seems even greater in the age we live in because of the trend in the world to expect that a good relationship should include sex before marriage. That push is practically everywhere you look.

I say these things to preface this series. If you want God involved, you will have to trust that he knows best.

Marriage is honorable (in all things). God is for it. Hebrews 13 further states in verse 5, "...and be content with such things as ye have for he has said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee."

Ouch! Somebody tell me that is not in the Bible. It is.

Let's go back to Genesis for a quick look. God initiated the idea of a spouse for Adam. It doesn't mention in the writings of Genesis that Adam had filed a complaint. Adam was just doing his job. "And the Lord God said, it is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him." Genesis 2:18. Content does not mean you have no desire. It means you don't require of your situation any more than it can give. You don't complain about where you are and what you have since God is with you. God says that is the reason to be content. If you have God, you have everything! Including getting a spouse? Let's explore.
