Christians long for God to send them their ideal partner; marriage is part of His plan and it’s perfectly natural to long for it.
God guides our paths in different ways as He leads us toward finding our spouses – whether through association, circumstances, or prophecy – so He brings the person that fits best into your purposeful lifestyle.

1. He sends the right person
God does not promise all of us a spouse in physical form; however, He does provide spiritual companions as believers. To increase our chances of meeting someone special and bring joy into our lives more quickly, Christians must love others selflessly like Christ did – this opens doors for relationships to form and prepares you to meet someone worthy of being an anchor point in our lives.
God wants to be your matchmaker and guide the events in your love life, but you must submit yourself completely to His will and let Him lead the way. Surrendering means giving up control and letting God take charge – which may be difficult during single season – yet focussing on your relationship with Jesus will make the wait more bearable.
God will send the right man into your life at just the right time. When seeking out your future husband, it’s important to get to know him well and become familiar with his character. Make sure he values spiritual things such as a strong Bible study program, serving the poor and loving the church – things which will not lead to worldly pleasures but instead encourage your walk with the Lord and strengthen you spiritually.
God will arrange someone special for you who will honor and nurture your faith, while supporting your relationship with Him. They won’t expect you to change into someone you’re not; instead they’ll appreciate that He uniquely made each individual special and special. And they’ll show what true love looks like: patience and kindness!
Once you meet your future husband, all that longing will have been worth it. You will gain an appreciation of how God has prepared both of you for a future together and realize that waiting was for His glory alone.

2. He sends the right time
If you are seeking the Lord for a husband, it is vital that you remain focused on Him. He knows exactly what you need at every point in time; spend time in His presence and study His word to gain more of an understanding of His ways. Additionally, be sensitive to any promptings of the Holy Spirit while walking in faith and obedience.
At times, it can feel as if Satan is blocking your path towards finding a future husband, which can be very discouraging. Marriage is a powerful weapon used by God for His glory and Satan wants nothing more than to prevent you from getting hitched.
The devil will tempt you to lower your standards by offering false comfort in singleness or making you believe that finding your ideal partner has passed you by. But remember: God created woman for a reason, and He will bring forth the perfect one when the time is right.
God always has your best intentions in mind when it comes to choosing a spouse; sometimes waiting may benefit both your life and those He has planned. Rushing into dating sites or forcing something which doesn’t reflect His will could result in someone who does not fit your purpose well or does not compliment it.
God often calls His children to wait patiently on Him for their future husband, in order to strengthen the bond they share with Him. Even during times of loneliness or uncertainty, His plan for your life must always remain the priority – His promises cannot be broken! Though waiting may be challenging at times, remember your heavenly Father loves and is faithful in keeping his promises!
3. He sends the right circumstances
Your prayers to God for a husband may include asking Him for one as soon as possible, but it’s also important to recognize that he will send them in due time under appropriate conditions. These circumstances will allow you to know if they truly come from Him and can prevent bad relationships that will ruin your life. In addition, your spouse should support your ministry and spiritual growth while respecting your independence without treating you like a doormat.
Before getting married, it’s also advisable to obtain the approval of an authoritative figure such as your parents or spiritual leader. Make sure this person knows you can trust them without sentimentality as this will help avoid making hasty decisions that could endanger your life.
Prior to making any major decisions, always pray. God will reveal your perfect partner when your mind and emotions are in their proper places; being close to Him makes it easier to discern His voice from other voices – if someone tells you “John will be your husband”, remember it may not be from God! So train your ear to recognize His voice throughout all aspects of life, not just marriage.
God can guide your search for a spouse, but it’s up to you to be submissive and follow His lead. Once ready to take steps necessary, He’ll take care of everything else! Don’t rush into things or be jealous of other women who are married – your single years should serve an important purpose, so take full advantage of them.
God wants the best for you and will guide you towards finding a mate as long as you give yourself over completely to His will and serve Him with all of your heart. He will send a man that complements both your strengths and weaknesses while helping to fulfill His plans for your life; He won’t send anyone who would pull away from their faith or compromise your integrity.
4. He sends the right people
There will always be women who never marry because God did not create men who could love them enough to want to. Those women must seek His forgiveness and ask Him to transform any characteristics in them that might turn off potential husbands; such as anger, low self-esteem, narcissism, lack of focus in life etc. It takes time and requires both parties to commit. Instead of hiding behind spiritual facades for romance to begin blooming sacrificially loving others with joy!
Once it comes time for marriage, God will send your ideal partner. Just like Adam and Eve were united through Him, so will you find a husband who complements you perfectly in every aspect.
When God leads you to find your perfect match, you will recognize him immediately as someone who fits easily into His plan for your life without conflict or friction. Furthermore, they should be passionate about serving Him and providing positive influence within your life – someone who takes good care in managing whatever gifts or talents He gives them – serving as a role model who exemplifies godliness in their actions and speech.
As difficult as waiting on God may be, take comfort knowing His timing is always best. Trust that when He sends your future husband your way, you will experience love that is patient and kind – delight yourself in Him, and He will fulfill your desires (Psalm 37:4)!
