If you’re like me, you look for signs from time to time. Maybe you’re looking for a sign to take that one job you’ve been debating over. Or maybe you’re waiting for a sign to accept that college offer you’ve been waiting to commit to.
There are signs all over, and depending on your situation, people look for different signs for different things. Going through life, I’ve had so many of my friends be in relationships they shouldn’t have been in at all. They’d always tell me they’re waiting for that one sign to really show them they should break things off.
These signs are important and are usually from God himself. The Bible has advice and guidance on what you should be looking for in your future husband, you just have to look for it.
Hebrews 10:24-25 says, “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”
Is your boyfriend or girlfriend not only supporting your relationship with the Lord, but pushing you closer to him, as well? Your significant other’s main priority should be keeping you accountable and encouraging you to pursue the Lord.
If you notice your boyfriend or girlfriend tearing down your faith, pulling you away from God, teasing your relationship with the Lord, etc., run the other way! We become like the people we surround ourselves with, especially those we spend a large amount of time with.
1 John 3:18 says, “Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.”
Do your significant other’s words line up with their actions? Are they constantly making promises they can’t keep? Loving solely with words leads to unfulfilled promises, but loving with truthful actions leads to genuine, long-lasting love.
As they say, actions always speak louder than words. If you’re constantly being disappointed by commitments not being met, then maybe this is the sign you’ve been looking for.
Proverbs 31:10-11 says, “A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value.
Do you feel full support and confidence from your current partner? Do you feel like they have your back no matter what? The Bible says a husband should have full confidence in his wife, lacking nothing of value. Your significant other should be your #1 fan, rooting for your accomplishments and picking you back up when you fail.
Lastly, if you’re looking for signs to breakup, odds are you probably shouldn’t be in that relationship anyways. Trust your gut instinct, and ask God for the strength and guidance for his will to be done. When it comes to wrong relationships, the grass really is always greener on the other side. Know what you deserve and find the person God intended for you to be with!
