Jeremiah 17:9 King James Version
9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
How many times have you heard the saying ‘Follow your heart’? Do what makes you happy and everything else will follow? But it is this very advice that leas us to pits of despair when in come to matters of the heart. Our heart and ‘feelings’ often mislead us and sometimes they lead us to our very own destruction. We trust our own judgement when it comes to this matters and don’t really meditate on the consequences of these actions. Look at what happened to Cain and Abel in the Bible all because you want to do what you ‘feel’ is right and what you want. But then when it doesn’t turn out to work in our favour our hearts are broken, we are angry, we ask God why?
This is the question God asked Cain, “6 Then the Lord said to Cain, “Why are you angry? Why is your face downcast?7 If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it.” Gen 6-7 (NIV)
The fact that the verse is saying ‘Desperately wicked” is the reason why you get quotes that say things like ‘ the brain is an amazing organ, it works 24/7 and 365 days a year right from your birth until you fall in love.’ Lets be real, you know that guy right there is not for you, yes he’s nice looking, yes he gives you attention, yes he likes you back, yes,yes,yes. You end up in a conversation with yourself trying to talk yourself into how wonderful the idea of a relationship would be. This is typical teenagers or even young adult. you break your own rules to please someone else and then… the inevitable heartbreak.
Wait for him to find you. Wait for God to lead him to YOU.
Proverbs 18:22 (KJV)
22 Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the Lord.
Waiting doesn’t mean at the moment no one wants you. In your singleness God requires you undivided attention, where you get to know him by yourself, you build a relationship enveloped in love and you are forever reading the love story He wrote just for you. In this story you will find your self and get lost in His love because its unconditional and whole and build you up. This is what God did with Adam and Eve at Creation. Adam was created first and built a relationship with God and walked with God. When God made Eve, Adam was put to sleep, Eve knew God before she knew Adam. This will be the same for you. The key is waiting. God doesn’t need your help finding a mate. God to Him and He will provide as He sees fit.
