Ok, so you may not be married quite yet - may not even be thinking about it - but one day you might. But before we get there, God can still teach us something for today from this verse: ‘Live happily with the woman you love…’ Wow, get that! God doesn’t just want us to enjoy good relationships, He wants us to have relationships we can relish - where we’re totally loving every minute. God really does want you to have great friends and build great relationships, the kind that make you smile and make your life easier to handle!
So if your life is a little low on the friendship front today, pray. Ask God for some great relationships, knowing that’s exactly what He wants for you too. Ask Him for help in finding the right friends and choosing the ones that will build you up, not drag you down. God promises: ‘I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you’ (Psalm 32:8 NLT).
And while you’re at it, if you’re hoping one day to be married, why not start praying now for the your future husband or wife. Talk to God about it, knowing He cares about this too. Ask Him to help you now to grow into the best wife or husband you can be so you will be ready to ‘Live happily with the [one] you love…’
