“Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him” Genesis 2:18, NLT.
When dating, we have to be careful and pay attention when God reveals that a person doesn’t fit you–isn’t suitable, beneficial, complementary to you. It’s like going to the store and finding a pair of shoes that really look good, but they don’t have your size. However, you are still adamant about having those shoes. Be careful because you are about to cause yourself some unnecessary pain, waste, frustration, time, and struggle to try to make something for you that is made for someone else.
When we go to the store to buy some shoes, most of us find it very easy to say even though we like them, they don’t have your size and don’t fit. We leave those shoes in the store and go to another to find what we’re looking for.
It is the same with relationships. Be willing to admit, be honest, and accept they are not the right fit and let them go. Don’t hold on to someone who God made for someone else. The sobering truth is while you’re with the wrong fit, you miss out on the right one. Trust God that He will bless you to find another one that perfectly fits. If He can reveal and help you notice who is wrong for you, He will help you meet the right one for you.
Prayer: Father, I give You praise today. Thank You for sending this wisdom my way. I want to be with the right one. Help me pay attention to the Holy Spirit and recognize when someone isn’t just right. When You reveal it to me, give me the strength to let them go. I trust You will bless me with the perfect fit for me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
