Worship artists’ Kari Jobe and Cody Carnes have been wonderfully blessed with a loving marriage. Jobe even described her marriage to Carnes as “a taste of heaven.” These two have waited, saved, and have sacrificed to ensure that their big day will become a reality.
Jobe once posted on her Facebook page an advice for people searching for a spouse. She said that God has someone special intended for them and that they should not be so much in a rush to find someone to be with that they miss out on God’s wonderful plan for them.
“If there is one message I’d like to relay to those who are still searching for a spouse, it would be this: don’t allow yourself to get so caught up in the idea of marriage that you miss the voice of the Holy Spirit,” she said.
Carnes and Jobe built their relationship around God, and even during their wedding, they made time to worship Him. “It was the strongest presence of God I have ever felt,” the singer described. “Getting married made me think of how much God longs to come back for us as His bride. He loves us and loves to pour out His spirit and presence over us but being with Him in heaven when He comes back for us will be so incredible. Thank you Lord, for letting us experience a taste of your glory here on earth.”
Age must not be the reason for you to rush into marriage. Marriage is a precious gift from God and must not be taken for granted. God’s timing is perfect. You only need to hold on to His promises because His plans for you are far way better than you could ever imagine!
God wants you to wait because He’s preparing something greater for you. And He’s saving you from a lot of pains and heartaches from marrying the wrong person. God knows what we need, who we need.
