Is God a physical entity

Are there soul mates? Has God designated a special person for you to marry?



The common idea of ​​a "soul mate" is that for every person there is a different person who is a perfect match and if you marry someone other than your soul mate, you will never be happy. Is the concept of the soulmate true to the Bible? No it is not. This idea is often used as an excuse for a divorce. People who are not happy in their marriage sometimes claim that they did not marry their soul mate and should therefore divorce in order to find their true soul mate.

This is nothing more than an excuse, a blatant, non-biblical excuse. When you're married, your spouse is your soulmate. Mark 10: 7-9 explains: “Therefore a man will forsake his father and mother and be attached to his wife, and the two will be" one "flesh. So they are no longer two, but "one" meat. What God has now joined together, man should not separate. ”A husband and his wife are“ joined ”,“ one flesh ”, and no longer two, but a joined couple, that is, soul mates.

A marriage may not be as united and happy as a couple would like it to be. A husband and wife may not have the physical, emotional, and spiritual union they want. But still, as a married couple, they are soul mates. A couple in this situation must work to develop true "soulmate" intimacy. By obeying the teachings of the Bible (Ephesians 5: 22-23), a couple can develop the intimacy, love, and commitment that make up this "one flesh" soulmate. If you are married, you are married to your soul mate. No matter how inharmonious the marriage is, God can bring healing, forgiveness, restoration, and true conjugal love and harmony.

Is It Possible to Marry the Wrong Person? When we give ourselves to God and seek his guidance, he has promised to guide us: “Rely on the LORD with all your heart, and do not rely on your understanding, but remember him in all your ways, and he will do justice to you lead ”(Proverbs 3: 5-6). The meaning of Proverbs 3: 5-6 is that if you trust the Lord with all your heart and rely on His mind and not your own, you will never go in a wrong direction. Yes, in a time of disobedience and lack of fellowship with God, it is possible to marry someone he did not wish for you. Even in such a case, God is superior and in control.

Even if marriage was not God's wish, it is still in His divine plan. God hates divorce, and marrying the wrong person is never listed as a reason for divorce in the Bible. The statement, "I married the wrong person and will never be happy until I find my true soulmate" is not true to the Bible in two ways. First, it is a claim that your wrong choice has undermined God's will and destroyed His plan. Second, it is an assertion that God is incapable of making a difficult marriage happy, successful and uniting. Nothing we do can interfere with God's sovereign will. God is able to shape two people, no matter how different they are, so that they are perfect for one another.

When we are in close communion with God, He will guide and guide us. If someone really seeks God's will, God will lead that person to the intended partner. God leads us to our “soul mate” when we submit to his will and follow him. However, "kinship" is on the one hand a position and on the other hand a practice. Husband and wife are soul mates because they are spiritually, physically and emotionally bound together in "one flesh". In practice, however, we have to take the couple as “soul mates” and make them a reality day by day. True soulmate unity is only possible when the biblical principles of marriage are applied on a daily basis.
