When it comes to faithfulness in relationships, it doesn’t start at the altar on the wedding day. It doesn’t start when you enter a relationship. As a follower of Christ, it starts in the heart.
So be faithful to Him on this very day, even before your big moment comes.
1. Be faithful while you’re single
Sometimes you might be feeling like, “what’s the use? What’s the use of praying and seeking God about my future husband when it’s been months, years, and nothing has happened?” If you’ve ever felt that way, be encouraged that God is still preparing you. Just because your #relationshipgoals didn’t happen in your timeline or you didn’t end up with the person you thought you’d end up with, you can’t let that stop you from being faithful. Don’t let that stop you from being that woman who walks into the room and is so filled Jesus people can’t help but to see it! When you have Jesus, you are fulfilled. You are not missing pieces because you’re single. And besides, you never know what godly man is praying to meet someone just like you! And most importantly, you never know what God is preparing you for. You just need to be faithful over the little things first! God honors faithfulness, so don’t allow what you don’t have yet cause you to take your eyes off Him.
2. Be faithful while you’re in a relationship
So often times we think that being faithful is just not cheating. But for men and women who are followers of Christ, faithfulness digs deeper. We aren’t just faithful in regards to not cheating—we are faithful, constant and consistent in all areas of our lives. As a couple, be faithful in reading God’s Word together. Be faithful in establishing boundaries that glorify God and holding one another accountable about being intentional. Be faithful in building each other up. All of these things are seeds you’re sowing, day in and day out, and when you do this, your relationship is getting stronger, but most importantly, your relationship with Jesus gets stronger! Be faithful in little things! Keep sowing seeds and they will grow.
