Told Me Who To Marry

I think God has told me the person I am going to marry. I wonder if I am crazy for thinking that. I have close to 6 years before I think I will be ready for marriage anyways. Could this be my imagination?

I dont think you're crazy at all. I was told also who I am to be with. He is an amazing person and throughout time I find soething new that i love about him. Unfortunately though, I find myself wrapping myself in the future instead of focusing on Jesus, and without Him, I will get no where. Please, be careful, and always put God first.He will take care of you and the one He has in store for you. That, and know that this can be a rough journey, it has been for me. Though God is an awesome God and works in amazing ways.Trust God with your life and your husband/ wife. Sorry lol i dont see anything that would show me your gender lol

What you should do is to ask God to confirm if the person is HIS choice for you. The evil one or your own mind can sometimes dictate ungodly choices to you. But through prayer you defeat all ungodly ideas and confirm Godly directives.

No this is not your imagination and you are not crazy. Others are experiencing the same thing. Yes, God gave us the free will to choose our own mate, but as proven by current state of events, many have proven that we can't be trusted with that choice. In some cases God needs to let certain believers know who thier intended is because God has a purpose for these two to be together and God is not going to let anything disturb his eternal plan. Yes, God probably has told you this but the reason is for his own divine purpose and not your own marital bliss. So take solace in God's desire for you and be patient. All will occur in God's time.

It is very real!!!! The first time my husband touched my hand, I heard the Holy Spirit say,"This is the one you will marry."
I knew instantly. 3 weeks later we were engaged and 6 months later we were married. The best thing that ever happened in our lives. We have been married 14 years and we have never had an argument. We just love each other. Trust God honey, it works.

In my opinion, don't get married...
Steveng, your writing and ravings have a dark side. I know someone exactly like you, he used religion as a front for some really questional behaviors. He also used religion to pacify, soothe his own mind about what it was he was really doing. Steveng, you need help.

If you have 6 years to marry, it could be your imagination. Why, you could easily have tunnel vision for 6 years, thinking this person is going to come around. If they do not, you've thrown other opportunities to meet the right person right out the window. Six years is a long time, if you're dreaming about this person, it could be your emotions getting in way of what God really has in store for you.

Brenda2 ... It worked!!

Thanks alan_of_UK

I will try doing that again but when I did it the first two times it didn't post.
I will try it again now.
---Brenda2 on 7/2/07

Steveng, that sounds good. I think of how Paul says, "Test all things; hold fast what is good." (1 Thessalonians 5:21)

So, I can see that God wants you to TEST to make sure of what He is telling you.

And people who LOVE you will ALSO welcome you to TEST them, and NOT just to blindly trust.

It could be your imaginagion but I have known people who have had that experience and did marry with successful marriages. Just keep it in prayer and do what ever it is that you need to do between now and 6 years. YOu never know. Just keep seeking the kingdom of heaven first.

Brenda 2 ... when you first start your reply, you should show "Brenda2" in the Your First Name box, then you will automatically be shown as that by the system, and won't have to type it as part of your reply.

So, you have "at least 6 more years" before you'll be ready? If you are a teenager, I'd say AT LEAST six more years. But if you're twenty or more . . . and you are thinking you can keep track of yourself and what you are and are not ready for, even for the next six years . . . you may be also deciding what you "hear" God telling you.

Each day, start fresh, and see what ***God*** is ready for, with you TODAY. And enjoy Him. He will satisfy you with what He really wants.
---Bill_bila5659 on 7/1/07

In my opinion, don't get married. The time is at hand that we should look forward to the soon to come Jesus.

But if you must, don't depend upon the ellusiveness of "happiness." Meet his parents and friends. How does he interact with each of them? What do they say about him? Will he be able to lead the family as Christ leads the church? In fact, you should know these questions before you two make any serious commitment/engagement. Get to know him as a friend first? Don't be in a hurry.

Hi and God bless all here.

I just wanted to point out that I am newer here and notice there is another Brenda so I am trying to sign now with Brenda2 so as not to confuse anyone because we have the same name but are not the same person.
God bless

** If it is God, God is more than able to tell that person, too.**

And remember, according to what you yourself said, Janelle, God has six years to tell the other person.

What does a man know about this romantic stuff? So, I will borrow Brenda's positive experience. "It is very real!The first time my husband touched my hand,I heard the Holy Spirit say,"This is the one you will marry."
I knew instantly.3 weeks later we were engaged and 6 months later we were married. The best thing that ever happened in our lives.We have been married 14 years and we have never had an argument.We just love each other.Trust God honey,it works.Brenda on 6/30/07

Oooh, do be careful. Let the relationship stand the test of time and don't be afraid to admit you might have been mistaken if things aren't going well. Get other people's opinions that know both of you.
I think it is rare to never have an argument with a significant other and you should not go into the relationship with that expectation. Peace be with you and I hope you find true love someday. Keep praying about it.
---Sherry on 6/30/07

Yes, or wishful thinking. Be careful. Young men have also had thoughts like these and force their will on vulnerable women, telling them, "God says we are to be together". And God didn't say any such thing, it came from their own minds. Be careful. Don't tell the person. If it is God, God is more than able to tell that person, too.
