Signs this Person is Sent by God

In the clothing industry, we know that there are original branded clothes and imitations. Some imitations look real until you take them home and wear for a certain period. You will notice the color fades and quality is not so good after all. What a waste of money and time, right?

This is the same in relationships. You have the person God has reserved for you and then you get the counterfeit. So, how do you know if this person is sent from God? How do you break generational problems that might try creep up in your dating?

In Christianity, whatever we do should be guided by God. Even when we get into relationships, God should be the source and full center. If you feel you are ready to start a relationship, it’s important that you involve God. This is to allow Him to bring forward the right person for you.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-11: says; “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone?”

Being in a relationship and having companionship is something that God approves; however, it should be done in a godly way. Nobody can deny that it’s always good to have a partner to do life with, share your burdens and even the good times too.

That is why it is important to invite God into this part of your life because should you choose wrong, the consequences will be worse. This part can be avoided through prayer and fasting.

God has put in place visible signs for us to know if this specific person is from Him. As we know, He is a God of order. He won’t allow you to figure things out through trial and error – but will be the guiding hand into that peaceful and loving relationship.

In Isaiah 45:2, God says that “I will go before you and will level the mountains; I will break down gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron.”

Isn’t it wonderful to know that we have a helper, a guide and a God who goes ahead of us to prepare the way?

These are the signs of someone that is coming from God in a relationship. This will help you to read between the lines in the future interactions.

1. Is Truthful

A man or woman from God has the spirit of truth operating. Whatever the person says aligns with the actions. The person will not say one thing about accomplishments, family, work etc., and something else the next day. That is a clear sign of a counterfeit.

This is one part of a relationship that leads to failure. If someone comes into a relationship and tells many lies, distrust will begin to build up – that is a given. A relationship built on lies will not stand the test of time, so guard your heart from this.

I remember a sister’s story that I read about. She said that the only true thing that this brother told her when they met was his name and surname. As funny as it may sound, this is the reality for many while dating. Dishonesty is a big part of the relationship and that is because there has been no time taken in venting out the person’s intentions first.

You can imagine the disappointment that comes with a failed relationship.

In 1 Corinthians 4:2 the Bible says: “Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful”.

If this man or woman cannot prove to be faithful, then is it worth entertaining the relationship? Anybody God gives to you will embody His character. That is not to say the person will be perfect, but they will strive to be like Jesus.

That takes us to the next point – being God fearing.

2. God Fearing

When God lives in someone, there are fruits that you will see very evident in this person’s life. The way the individual talks, his/her intentions and even the relationship with God will tell you everything you need to know.

There’s a saying that if one cannot be faithful to God, how can they be faithful to you? That is to say, a man or a woman who is lukewarm, has a rocky relationship with God and isn’t fully committed cannot be that for you.

3. Respect

A man who doesn’t respect you is already a red flag as many would say.

Respect is fundamental and if someone doesn’t respect you through their actions and how they speak to you, then there’s little value for your well-being, and as a person.

One thing I know for sure is that God doesn’t want you to settle for a relationship with no respect in it. You must remember 1 Peter 2:9 that reminds you that: “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”

Would anyone dare disrespect a chief, president or anyone from the royal family? No. Then you should view yourself the same – a child of the most high God!

4. Pushes you to God

Someone sent by God will encourage your godly life. That is because he/she too holds the same beliefs and values.

If you are a virgin or waiting until marriage to have sex, meeting someone that wants to push you into intimacy should already tell you the person’s intentions. However, someone that is committed, and willing to wait are green flags!

How about clubbing, drinking or even living a promiscuous life? All these are signs that God is not in this relationship. It’s time to come out and wait for the very best from Him.

However, someone inviting you to church, Bible study, meeting out in public to spend time together and honoring God in the process shows that this person cares what God thinks.

5. Sacrifices Time

For love to develop between two people, time must be sacrificed. This time is spent getting to know each other, having conversations about the future, your childhood etc. All this is to know the kind of person you’re getting involved with.

But what about someone who always makes excuses to meet up? Doesn’t respond to messages/calls until days later or when you are together, there’s no interest in getting to know you. These are tale-tale signs of a relationship not heading too far.

But a man or woman who is invested in you will remember details you share, where you grew up, what you want out of life – and these are just to name a few. This is the kind of person worth entertaining.

6. You Feel Peace

There are people who don’t see peace as their desire. They will always try and find a problem where there is none. All they do is pick a fight with you, accuse you of wrongdoing and blame you for almost everything.

You can tell that this person has come in your life to shift your focus from God. When all this is happening, it drains your energy and occupies your mind to an extent that you cannot even pray. You will be focusing on defending yourself all the time.

When a man or woman is from God, they bring peace into your life. Even if there are problems, you can sit down to discuss them. There are no pointing fingers or raising of voices. Instead, the person takes things into prayer and waits on God to make decisions.

Doesn’t that sound like a wonderful kind of person to be around? If you wait on God and be patient, you will receive what you have been praying for.

7. Patient and Humble

Patience and humbleness go together. When you are not humble, you lack patience. The smallest of things trigger you and you react quickly. A humble man or woman can only come from God.

He or she is not pompous; doesn’t look down upon other people and is patient in all situations. A man who wants to rush things is a man on a mission.

Many women fall prey to unhumble man as they always threaten to leave because “women want me; I have money and I can get any woman anytime”. This is to make you feel like you need him more than he needs you.

Galatians 6:7 tells us that; “Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap.”

Do not be led into sin by a man who doesn’t want to obey God. Always be wary of the cunning ways of the evil and flee from it. God is faithful, He always fulfils our needs.

8. Dreams of Good

Whenever you dream about this person, the dreams are good and bring peace to you. This is an indication that everything is in place – but keep praying in the process.

Dreams say a lot about our spiritual lives. God sends us dreams to warn us about dangers that are ahead of us.

Let’s say every time you dream of this man, he is fighting with you, unfaithful or you wake up with worry and fear, this is not good. Would you think that this is the man for you? Even if you are not sure what these dreams mean, you clearly can tell there is nothing good in them.

Because of the importance of dreams in a Christian’s life, the Dreams Decoded course was designed by the grace of God. This is a great way any Christian can learn how to interpret dreams in a biblical way, and through the power of the Holy Spirit.

9. Self-control

Self-control is a fruit of the spirit and perhaps why it ties with patience. It is easy to fail to have self-control when in a relationship. That is why it is important to have a relationship with God, for He will provide the strength.

A man or even woman God has for you will encourage self-control. There will be no occasion where the person fuels fire into committing fornication, but instead is willing to wait until the time is right.

There is no pressurizing, no persuading or unwillingness to commit if he or she does not first test drive the “car”.

Such a genuine person with this kind of virtue only comes from God.

10. Similar Beliefs and Values

The Christian faith should be the foundation which any relationship builds upon. Why? Because everything else such as values and beliefs is dependent on your faith.

How great would it feel sharing ideas, raising kids in the same way and having agreements on important matters in life?

This shows compatibility – being able to coexist and understand each other on a deeper level, with no clashes on faith, family, beliefs etc.  That is the kind of relationship you want to entertain.

I believe God is sending you this person your way – the person that will understand, love and pray with you!

But while you are in the waiting season, it is important to prepare and gain knowledge on godly dating and marriage. The Marriage Unleashed course looks at the spiritual part of your life, praying effectively for the right person and MORE!
