Prayer: Father, Please Guide All Our Youths As They Embark On Choosing Marriage Partners

"Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers: for what communion can righteousness have with unrighteousness?" What kind of relationship does light have with darkness? 2 Corinthians 6:14

Read: 1 Kings 11:1–4 

Apart from choosing who to serve, choosing who to marry is another crucial decision that determines a person's future. A bad marriage decision might have a negative impact on one's decision to serve God. Solomon married a number of different ladies, who persuaded him to abandon God and serve their idols. Solomon's decision to serve the Almighty God had been harmed by his previous marriages. A marriage partner has the power to take Heaven from his or her spouse's dreams and replace it with Hell. Depending on who you marry, your connection with God will either improve or deteriorate.

Solomon did not want to forget God for all that he had done for him, but his marriage caused him to make mistakes. It's critical to consider the elements that influence the decisions we make on a regular basis. There are always negative and good elements influencing our decisions. Whichever one you let lead you will decide the type of decision you make. Many people in the Bible committed costly mistakes either because they made a mistake or because they relied only on their own wisdom without seeking God's counsel.

As a result, making a wise decision is beyond human comprehension. Depending on God in making a decision, no matter how much knowledge you have, is a show of meekness and humility. Unfortunately, many young people nowadays do not believe that God still selects the best marriage mate for His faithful children. "The humble will he guide in judgment, and the meek will he instruct his path," the Bible states in Psalm 25:9. The meek are guided by God in their judgment. In this usage, judgment refers to a choice, preference, or decision.

In situations where you must make a decision, you must have a fundamental understanding. Nonetheless, even after learning the necessary information, you must still rely on God. Lot chose to migrate to a plot of land that he knew would be suitable for cultivation. He had perfect knowledge, but it was limited because he had no idea what the future held for that region. In the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah, God annihilated that land ( Genesis 13 :9 -12 ).

There's nothing wrong with making a decision, but Lot made the mistake of not seeking God's counsel before making his decision. Making a decision based entirely on what you know can cost you your entire life and disrupt your everlasting tranquility. Do you know enough about marriage as a young person before you become involved in it? Do not make a decision based on appearances; having appropriate knowledge and God's direction are essential for making the optimal decision.
