A lot of people in church are pretenders- we are not even sure who is saved. The question then becomes- ‘how do I recognize a godly spouse? How do you choose a godly spouse? How do you identify the fakes?

The emboldened sentence stems from a faulty thought process – it is a lie. It is the falsehood the devil will have you believe- when you think the worst of everyone in your church family, unbelievers begin to look attractive to you.  All of a sudden, unbelievers seem ‘nice’. Is niceness a fruit of the Spirit?

I am not saying that there aren’t folks who pretend to be saved in church. There are. This is why you have the Holy Spirit- he is your source of discernment. As long as you are God’s child, you will know who is real and who is not.  You have the one that knows all things on your inside. The inconsistencies will definitely show (except you keep giving excuses for these visible or not-too-obvious flaws). God is too faithful to leave you in the dark about someone’s true nature. You trust the smoke detector in your house to alert you when there’s a fire, but you don’t trust God to expose a wolf in sheep’s clothing?

Like Prophet Samuel, don’t depend on your senses to recognize a godly spouse, don’t look at the outward appearances, listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit. The importance of choosing with God cannot be overemphasized. God sees the future you and the future of that person. He knows what you need better than you do. So, PRAY!

You need to believe there are a lot of godly single folks in the church because you’ll continue experiencing what you believe. You’d only seem to meet these so-called fake believers; such that even when you meet a good one, you’d become overly skeptical about him/her. Godly and God-loving guys and ladies are numerous in number. You’ll definitely marry one of them. You don’t believe me? Read Calm Down! You’ll Marry Your Own Bae
