I’ve heard many women say that one of the reasons they’re scared to submit totally to God is cos they will most likely loose their current partner and won’t find a man who’s willing to uphold celibacy nowadays.
I too had that fear, and I agree that they aren’t a lot of them, but I’m pretty sure they’re enough to go around. I personally know about five men that I can vouch for.
So how do we deal with this dilemma?! Well, first of all; your job is not to do the seeking! The bible says HE WHO FINDS A WIFE, FINDS A GOOD THING…(Proverbs 18:22) So you have no business with seeking & finding a good man. Instead focus on your God and yourself, focus on your spiritual growth and well being, focus on being a better woman.
Do this and watch how you naturally attract “your kind”, because the godly man knows the value of “the good thing” that is promised in Proverbs 18:22. If you think a typical man that’s of the world, wants a church girl that will try to restrain him from worldly pleasures…think again sister!!!
Truth is, that’s the kind of man(the godly man) you need if you intend to grow spiritually. Settle for otherwise and watch him limit your growth. My Dad restricted my mum in the past from going to church programs. When you go after and settle with an ungodly man, be rest assured that’s what your future holds. He’ll subdue your yearnings for God. Except by God’s grace he becomes saved somewhere in between.
Lastly, please remember that God is the ultimate! If you’ve not surrendered your life to him. You should today!!! Yes, it’s as easy as it sound…all you need is a genuine, mindful and deliberate decision to begin to walk with him as your Lord and Savior. The enemy wants us to think it’s difficult and there’s too much at stake to give up; Thus, causing delay! But by God’s grace it’s the sweetest transition you’ll ever make. Trust me!!!
