Single christians and dating
Once they've done that, God increases his sustaining presence.I'm not saying that God doesn't have a will regarding your dating life.
There is plenty of stuff about God's will for his people, God wanting good things for you, and God's ultimate plan.Some Christians take a lot of comfort in the idea that God will do the heavy lifting when it comes to dating.God will tell them if a relationship is right, and God will end it if it's not.All they have to do is sit back and enjoy the ride.This may be the biggest excuse men use for being lazy in relationships, much less finding one.There are plenty of them, but let's focus on what I believe are the top five myths that make dating harder for Christian men.
Myth #1: "God has one woman picked out for you to marry.
" (No, that wasn't a suggestion for you to set up an arranged marriage.) For the Hebrews and the early church, dating wasn't an issue to be addressed in Scripture. When the Bible was written, a person basically had one of three options: remaining single, an amoral life with multiple partners or prostitutes, or an arranged marriage.
There were courtship rituals in place, but nothing that looks like what we consider dating today.
God may, in fact, have a spunky brunette in mind, and he's steering you toward her as you read this.
But the Bible does not promise that God will provide a loving relationship for you while you sit around and do nothing.
The church has reached a difficult crossroads when it comes to pre–marriage romance.
