“Where Is She?”

     Does God bless everyone with a wife?


Dear Waiting,

There are no guarantees regarding marriage.  In a fallen world full of sin, all sorts of tragic things happen… including people living without helpmeets even though they desperately want them.  God offers us comfort in that we can seek Him and His help through prayer (Jas 5:16-18).  God even says that there are advantages to being single, and that our single years can be our most productive spiritually (1 Cor 7:32-34).  Take heart that the Lord watches over those that are His (Jhn 10:14), and you will never be tempted beyond what you are able (1 Cor 10:13).  We can’t guarantee that you will have a wife, but we can tell you that in almost all cases, the right person comes along at the right time.
