Suspicion is not healthy for anyone, but caution is, though there is a very thin line between the two. When starting a date with someone you ought to be very careful not to just fall for everything…yet. It is good to try to
really get to know someone before you give him/her any commitments. And do not let go of any nudge to dig deeper for a better knowledge of the one whom you are dating.
We have all kinds of people in the world, the good, the bad and the ugly and people date for different reasons: to satisfy their sexual urges, some for financial gains, some just for co-habitation, some to feel like achievers and get some respect. While some date for love, marriage and companionship, you should be able to discern why the other person is in the relationship.
Never get carried away by feelings and emotions, look properly, look deep, and seek to know the truth. Do not be deceived at all, take time to pray and seek God’s face before you even go on a date with anyone, what looks like an ordinary date could turn into something ugly if you do not allow yourself to be led by the Spirit of God. Everything physical is an outcome of the spiritual, the physical is controlled and run by the spiritual, so in order to have a successful relationship and marriage you must seek God.
It is through prayer that you can see and discern things you wouldn’t have seen from the physical. When you pray, God will reveal to you what you need to know, and it doesn’t have to be through dreams and visions, it could just be in seeing an attitude that is not acceptable. So before you make any move as regards dating, courtship and marriage, dig deeper than what you see, seek God’s guidance in prayer, for only He knows the deep things.
