    But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint Isaiah40:31

    Patience is a virtue. It is an important subject in the Kingdom of God. When you believe the word of God and trust that he rewards those who diligently seek him then waiting should not be a painful period . Imagine the last time your daddy or mom travelled and now days were drawing closer for them to come back. How excited you were when doing the count down, knowing that in a few days they will be home. This should be the same with us children of God. Remember we walk by faith not by sight and the count down of what ever we are waiting for is done in spirit because every time that you kneel down to pray it`s a count down of victory in your spirit.

    Have you been waiting for the right husband or wife of your life. May be now it has been three years, five years or even ten years and the thoughts of doubt are beginning to unfold in you. Thoughts of whether that partner you have framed in your spirit exists or will come to pass. May be you are beginning to ask yourself whether you should settle for what you did not ask from God .Fear , uncertainty and doubt is gripping you. Let me tell you, when all these tries to find way in you begin to voce out your faith. Refuse to speak the words that involves “I don`t know...”, because the one who is inside of you knows. Christ the hope of glory in you. Remember we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.
    Keep walking in faith. Keep waiting and praising with joy. When you prayed you got the note of victory in your spirit and it was done a thousand years ago at Calvary, all you need to do is to be obedient and follow the voice of the Holy Spirit as it leads you. Don`t settle for the world and refuse to be unequally yoked because you are the best of God and he wants the best in you. You are in this world but not of this world. Many of your age may have married and got married but what is God saying to you?
    The homes of some Christians have turned to be a marriage war zone, just because in making this choice they decided to leave God out. Or may be they thought the waiting period was too long. They went out in the world to seek their life partner, but now everyday they pick up the phone to call the pastor and say I don`t know what`s going on in my house yet you never let God take charge when you made that choice. In life there are many decisions that we make and marriage is one of the major decisions and walking in it without Jesus is another mountain to move.
    Wait upon the Lord and have faith and obey what he tells you. Even If there are giants in that land come back with a testimony of Caleb and Joshua. Always be positive that what God has given you is nothing but the best because you are his best. Remember marriage is a reflection of Christ and the church and God hates divorce.
    Wait patiently, your wife is hidden in the word brother, walk with your spiritual eyes open, your husband is sealed in the word my sister.
    God has done it for you so refuse anxiety and refuse to be unequally yoked.
  2. Agree, I am learning this right now. I am learning to trust God in every aspect of my Life and that include my personal life. The Bible say we bring pleasure to God when we worship him and trust him. We live in a microwave society ,everyone want everything right now, people are not use to waiting .
  3. I have been single for over 6 years now and I have to say that Honestly I don't want for a relationship,I can't handle the points of heartbreak turmoil deciet and let downs. Since I moved out of Ontario Canada I found myself more pulled to GOD and the Holy Trinity and I feel as though there is no time anymore to try to forge a new relationship since time draws nearer to the rapture. What got me is what JESUS said after the parable of the Fig tree,That this generation shall not pass away till all these things be fulfilled and I have to say in my opinion we should make ready for soon we will be face to face with GOD almighty
    GOD bless everyone
