Jeremiah 29:11 (PDV) “Yes, I, the Lord, know the plans I am making for you. I declare it: these are not projects of misfortune but projects of happiness. I want to give you a future full of hope. "

Marriage is such a great blessing that when you meet someone who is not, it leaves you in awe. We know that God's plans for our lives are plans for happiness. So why are some people not married? In the equation of divine happiness, is it possible that among the various unknowns, marriage is not one? Are we all ultimately destined to get married?

The first question to ask yourself is: What does it mean to “be destined to marry”? The term “intended” refers us to the notion of “destination”, which can make us think of vision. This destination was stated by Our Heavenly Father even before the beginning.

Ephesians 1: 5 (KJV) “having predestinated us in His love to be His adopted children through Jesus Christ, at the pleasure of His will. "

However, between the beginning and the destination, there are paths chosen by the hands of our Creator.

Psalm 84: 5 (KJV) “Blessed are those who put their support in You! They find ready-made paths in their hearts. "

We all have a way set within us that we follow, guided by the Holy Spirit so that God's purposes may be fulfilled. So the final question would rather be: Do we absolutely have to get married to accomplish the purposes that God has placed in us? The answer is no. Indeed, not all marked paths necessarily lead to marriage.

If this was ever the case and it was absolutely necessary to get married to fulfill his destiny, then Jesus would have been a failure. And we know He's perfect. I think that somewhere, for Him as for other heroes of the faith, the fact that He was not married was also a means of proving to us that marriage is not a necessity for all in the accomplishment. of God's purposes.

12 factors to consider before marriage

Matthew 19: 10-12 (KJV) “His disciples said unto him, If such is the condition of a man with regard to a woman, it is not advantageous to marry. He answers them: Not all understand this word, but only those to whom it is given. For there are eunuchs who are eunuchs from their mother's womb; there are those who have become so by men; and there are some who have made themselves such, for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. Let anyone who can understand understand. "

As the previous verse shows us, there are different cases that we can also find in detail in the following article: “Gift of celibacy, who is concerned. "

Indeed, there are people for whom it is not advantageous to get married. For example, the vision God gave them may not involve them being married to come to its completion. The Lord will be able to send you all kinds of divine connections without watching one of your husband / wife. If not, there is also another type of person for whom the Lord said it was not good for them to be alone and responded to them with a spouse of destiny.

However, I know that we can quickly put pressure on ourselves, wondering if this is our case. You tell yourself that no one is interested in you, no serious suitor, you've been attending for a long time so maybe finally you're not meant to get married. I reassure you, it does not work that way. The goal is not to deprive you of marriage and let yourself burn in your corner and end up frustrated and at the mercy of the devil. Remember, the Lord has plans for happiness for us.

12 factors to consider before marriage

Proverbs 10:22 (KJV) “The blessing of the LORD makes rich, and he follows it with no sorrow. "

So if this is really your case and you are not destined to get married, know that a peace and an absence of sorrow will follow. Indeed, those who are not intended to marry for X or Y reason, cultivate a supernatural capacity to live in a pleasant and productive way, their period of celibacy and this until the end of their days. This is what we call the gift of celibacy. Do not be afraid, it does not impose itself on you, it is the result of a voluntary choice. You won't even have to ask yourself: " Lord, am I destined to marry myself?". With regard to your life and the vision that God has placed in you, you will decide whether it is advantageous for you to get married or not.

We are not all destined to get married, and yet neither does God favor his children. He continues to love us with unconditional love regardless of our destiny. He knows the plans that he has gathered for us and if we ever make the decision not to get married, He will know how to equip us with this gift which allows us to remain celibate without frustration or sin. Isn't He wonderful?
