Do you ever spend time alone with the King? If you do, how much? Now here is what I want to share with you: Before he ever had or needed the presence of another human being, Adam enjoyed the presence of God. In the garden of Eden, Adam was in the right environment to be protected from pollution and corruption. God gave Adam His own presence thus establishing an eternal principle. Adam had the good life. The Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed. And out of the ground the Lord God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
The first presence you need in your life is not the presence of a boyfriend or a girlfriend; but the presence of the living God. Use your single unmarried years to get to know the King--God the Father. The way to do that is through prayer and studying His Constitution (The Bible). Also by welcoming the ministry of the Holy Spirit into your life and becoming intimately familiar with God's presence. Keep this in mind, when a prospective spouse finds you, he or she should find you in Eden (meaning in right standing with the King). Marriage is never appropriate until you are so complete within yourself and your relationship with God the Father that you do not need marriage in order to define yourself.
Before you get married, always know your priority. Remember, before Adam had a wife, he had a responsibility, a job. Then the Lord took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it. Before a man should ever think about a wife, he should have a real job for some time--not just looking for one. Men with the Kingdom culture know their priorities, through reading and studying the Word.
