Why does God allow some to get married and some he does not?
Tell us, Lord! Is the reason why because others are not holy enough? Are the unmarried not presenting themselves as available or accessible enough? Is it perhaps that the man or woman is not yet mature enough? What is it? If maturity is the setback what are the characteristics that can qualify the unmarried? Even with that, have you and I not seen sadly immature people but still they are married? If you have not, my follow-up question is… is your T.V. broken? Ha! Why does God allow some men and women to get married while there are other eligible bachelors and bachelorettes that never marry?
If you have been reading intently this far, you may have noticed that I use the term “allow”. I likened to use “allow” because I follow the belief that nothing under the sun happens unless God allows it. Marriage, health, wealth, and children, and many other prayer points can be the single worst or best thing that has ever happened to a human being. IT ALL DEPENDS ON GODS CHOOSING!
The unmarried are not evil. The married are not good-hearted or vice versa. God is all-knowing and humans are not. Why does God allow some people to get married and some men and women He does not? I don't know about you, but I am not whom God should answer to. Let Him never tell me why, yet allow me to be grateful for all the times I have been a recipient of his outpour of love, forgiveness, covering, grace, and favor a million times over my life.
Everything about our Creator is perfect! He is not marriage centered. Whosoever asks such question or questions alike is not necessarily thinking small but rather their concept of God is small. Or more accurately put, the space in which they give God to operate in their life is too tiny! I think any person that asks this question should learn more about Gods character. Ruminate on The Creator (what he loves, what he detests) and care less of his creations. I think the person is looking at marriage higher than they do the self-existing God. My heartfelt prayer is; may your beliefs be in agreement with the truth that God can do no wrong! It is as though the person is looking at life through the flesh, not the Spirit. As opposed to saying look at how God made this man live a life with no health issues, another man God gave a life of luxury, He gave another man wonderful children and grandchildren, and the next man He marked with unending achievement. You can question God or you can be grateful to God.
The two are both actions but one is the antithesis of the other. To look at life like the former you are guaranteed to live a life plagued with sin lest you wait to obtain God’s submission to you before you do right. To act in the later (have more gratitude) blesses the grateful. To look at life the way God intended it to be … blesses you and I. I have a question for readers, is it possible to live a life the way God did not intend for you and still please him? Hardly! Is it possible to live a life God did not intend? Yes, it is called disobedience! It is absolutely possible to fight God every step of the way. That is when your will is done and not Gods. Why does God allow some to get married and some he does not? That is a question for people whose focus on God’s purpose needs adjustment.
