This word is for the singles that desire to eventually marry. Many of you choose to be single and don’t even know it. There is a problem with many Christian singles that stops them from receiving the gift of a spouse. I’m talking about the single person that is fulfilling the desires of the flesh. The singles that feel like God understands their sexual desires and urges and they indulge in relationships with the opposite sex. Don’t you know that when you are in a sexual relationship, you are becoming one with the person you are involved with? Then, how do you ever expect to marry or even pray for marriage, when in the spirit realm you are already taken? It trips me out how some single folks tell me that they are praying for God to bless them with a spouse and they are living with their partner, or sexually active? Come on folks! If you are sexually active outside of marriage, you are practicing “oneness”! If you are practicing oneness then you cannot be one with anyone else. Therefore, you are taken and will not receive a spouse from God.
I’m not talking about mistakes or slip-ups, but I’m talking about living a sinful lifestyle, (living together, homosexual, lesbian, etc.)! Let me tell you, if you are in a sexual relationship as a single, then prepare to stay single! God ain’t blessing you with someone in that illicit relationship. And as far as God is concerned, you are already illegally joined to a person, so there is no need to seek him for a spouse. The bible says to FLEE fornication. That means get away from that person you are messing with. I’ve had many Christian women and men tell me that the unsaved man they are sleeping with is going to marry them so they might as well indulge! What? Come on people. Don’t make it that easy for the devil to knock you off course. The reason you are even having sexual urges and desires is because your sexuality is awakened and disturbed by your lifestyle. If you would submit to God and resist the devil, the bible says he (his desires) will flee. Get it together single Christian. Don’t believe the hype. If you practice sin, the bible says that you belong to Satan. If you practice righteousness, you belong to God.
