This topic is going to be a very interesting discussion. I will be the first to say that I by no means have cornered the market on truth - only God has. Everything I present is what I believe, by scripture and faith, to be true.
With that said, my first question to you is this:
Do you believe God has a purpose and plan for His creation?
"But the plans of the LORD stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations." Psalm 33:11
I also believe He directs His people to accomplish His plan and purposes, including marriages (the good, the bad, and the ugly) and the children you will or will not have therein.
"Man's steps are ordered by the Lord. How then can a man understand his way?" Proverbs 20:24
"Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails." Proverbs 19:21
The immediate questions that probably pop into your mind are, "what about those who were in marriages and their spouse left them? What about those who were married to someone before they were saved and are now with someone else?" Where does sin fit in - can't we deviate from God's plan?"
I think the above questions, and the whole premise in general that our spouses are part of God's plan for us, deserves some in-depth discussion and study.
Before I continue with this topic, I want to hear from you - what is your perspective?
