When choosing a partner, the criteria’s are things like this in no particular order.
2.) Good sense of humour
3.) God fearing
4.) Good job
5.) Career driven e.t.c.
There is one particular one on that list that you have to be very careful with.
Now adays the saying you are God fearing is commonly used, just like you say good morning.
I have heard a lot of stories about these men now adays using the “I am God fearing” just to tick the box on the girls list.
Ladies guys know now adays that it is on your list. They know it will give you some sort of confidence in choosing to date them. Don’t be fooled!
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE. don’t get caught up.
Check out this scripture I love so much which has help me to even learn how to deal with people around me.
Matthew 10:16, Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
Human beings a great manipulators, and men especially know how to tell you what you want to hear.
But you have to be wise and still keep your innocence in figuring out his level of spirituality.
Even you as a lady, what is your level of spirituality. Are you also claiming to be God fearing, but far away from God.
You see you have to be able to descend whether he is really God fearing and not that it ends on him sometimes doing his quiet time or his Sunday church rituals.
I will rather accept a guy that says am religious but will like to get deeper.
A God fearing person is someone who
1.) Loves God with all the their heart
1 John 4:18, 18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear [a]involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love
2.) Keeps themselves Holy
2 Corinthians 1:17, Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
3.) Someone that is not lukewarm
Revelations 3:16, So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
4.) Saved at heart because,
Matthew 10:28, Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in [a]hell
And many more…
This should actually be your list. The rest can follow. You can learn to love anything else on the list when the main part is ticked of.
You can also be the help meet that you have been made to be, to boost up the other things on the list.
You yourself check if you are God fearing before looking into the potential partner. Let’s get it right and stop being fooled by the statement
“I AM GOD FEARING!”
Be blessed and let the good Lord lead you.
