God and online dating
Christians who are absolutely certain that they are being led by our Savior to meet potential mates have nothing to worry about because God will eventually help them to find the person of their dreams.“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding.In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)As in everything that happens in our lives, we should ask God to direct us clearly.Your life is about reflecting Christ and pointing others to Him, not to find a date or a mate.Fully strive to trust in Him, rely on Him, and rest in Him, and ask for His guidance as you consider online dating.I’ve had multiple conversations and read many blogs and articles about online dating.I’ve decided to boil all of that information down into this one teeny-tiny blog post.Online dating is often for the purpose of finding your lifelong match.Guys online will most likely appreciate a girl who’s intentional about marriage and who’s interested in a guy doing the same. You’re a girl going online and getting to know total strangers. It’s not possible to know with certainty that the person on the other side of the screen is safe.
I don’t want to try and take control or make something happen on my own. However, I don’t see anything in the Bible forbidding online dating. When it comes to online dating, you have to weigh your own pros and cons with the Bible as your guide.
Online dating sites are well known for matching guys and girls up according to personality, religion, and preferences, etc.
Many believe that this helps narrow down the options and gives a better chance of relationship success.
Invest time reading God’s Word and ask Him to help you trust Him more in this area of your life. By going online, you will have many more potential options.
No longer are you just limited to the tiny pool of people you personally know, but you now have access to people all over the country and sometimes even the world.
