    Exodus 33:15 (MSG)  Moses said, "If your presence doesn't take the lead here, call this trip off right now.

    In relationship and marriage some people may think, if I just get engaged and we try hard and God helping us we don't havejeru trap, we get married, then we have done excellently well.
     
    As good as this may sound, that's not all God requires of us before marriage. Our Christian race is also similar. We don't get born again, live 40 years on earth, and our aim is just to escape hell.
     
    There is more in God than escaping hell. Likewise, there is more to courtship and marriage than escaping fornication and adultery.
     
    There are great treasures in courtship and marriage that only those who are ready to do it right with God all the way will enjoy. Our lives, destiny, calling and purpose all require us to do it God's way.
     
    For those in courtship, right from your desire of who to marry, to how you handle your feelings and how you eventually propose, these steps should all follow God's standard.
     
    For example, seeing a pretty lady you seem to have feeling for and going ahead after a few weeks to ask her out without taking out much time to pray and consult God is below God's standard.
     
    It simply means you are just trying to play along and enjoy the dictates of your flesh.
     
    Really the things of God are anti - flesh. Our flesh wants to do it this way, the spirit wants to lead us the opposite direction. But remember that to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
     
    When we do it God's way, no matter how minute or inconsequential it appears, we enjoy life (the very nature of God) and peace. Some people started out their relationship and marriage on a wrong note and yet expect a miracle to happen. When problems or compromise begin to happen in their relationship they begin to wonder why.
     
    God wants the best for His children but we must be ready to obey and follow every of His principles. That's where reading our bibles, fellowshipping with God and having godly mentors come to play.
     
    You need to be submitted under godly spiritual authority. Is it because you cannot be trusted to take decisions by yourself? No. Of cause there are decisions you take by yourself without having to consult your pastor or mentor.
     
    Just as you don't depend on your pastor for all your spiritual nourishment and yet it's expected of you not to forsake the assembly of the brethren'. You can pray on your own, study and do all we come to church to do. But God says there is an anointing and supply of the spirit that comes from gathering together in one place for a corporate anointing. Both are important and one cannot replace the other.
     
    Let's learn to obey God and follow His instructions as well as those of our local assembly especially as regards rules for our courtship and marriage. Remember, Isa 1:19 says, 'if you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good of the land'. There is good in the land of courtship and marriage, but only the willing and obedient are qualified to experience the good.
     
    May the Grace to 'will and do' of God's purpose be ours to enjoy in Jesus name.
