Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed. Proverbs 15:22
Welcome to Heart2Heart devotional. The second principle of finding a Godly Mate is seeking the counsel of parents and godly mentors. Another principle you can learn from the process of finding a spouse for Isaac is the need to have parents and godly mentors involved.
Abraham and his chief servant were leading this process on behalf of Isaac. Similarly, you should have parents and godly mentors like involved in the selection of your life partner. Our scripture of the day says plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed.
One of the problems with the modern dating culture is that it is done without godly counsel. My wife and I had a couple mentor us for 2-years before we wedded. Their wisdom was immensely valuable.
Too many of singles start relationship these days without the benefit of the parents’ or godly mentors’ knowledge, wisdom, and insight. They just show up one day and say, “We are in love!” or even worse, “We are engaged and getting married!”
If you want to last in your marriage, then lay a solid foundation now by having godly people guide you throughout the relationship. Don’t assume you know. Humble yourself, ask questions, read this devotional everyday and be well guided.
This is crucial because when two people are face to face enjoying one another, they often miss major cues that could be disastrous in a marriage relationship.
They often lack the sexual accountability of having parents and mentors involved. As we will talk about later, sexual intimacy before marriage distract and greatly blind you as well as remove God’s blessing from your relationship. Remember: Only the pure in heart will see God (Matt 5:8).
