Yesterday, I emphasized the importance of alignment of purpose in ensuring marital conviction. Having confirmed alignment of purpose, it is important to compare who your spouse is with who God has called him or her ahead of time.
I could remember that one of my saving graces in making the right marital choice is the fact that God has spoken ahead about who my life partner should be. At that time, I had two fantastic suitors, one a doctor and the other a lawyer. I would have gone for the doctor for my many obvious reasons, but I chose the lawyer because he aligned with what God had said ahead of time that my husband would be, and to the glory of God, today I made a good choice.
Marital conviction is so easy to come by, if we all come to the point where we have a consistent working relationship with God.
How consistent are you in your relationship with God?
