Bible Verses About Waiting On Love (Patience in Finding Love)

Finding the right person is an arduous task.

Most times, even when we try, we don’t make the best decisions for ourselves.

That’s why we must pray and always seek God’s intervention.

There are lots of bible verses for patience when finding love.

These scriptures are needed for inspiration when you are waiting for love.

The truth is, you must be patient, pray ceaselessly, and be expectant.

Patience is key when searching for true love.

There is no need to hurry because God’s timing is always perfect.

It may take a while, but the delay is not denial.

Being impatient could lead you to fornication (which is a terrible sin before God).

Therefore, you must be patient because God’s only wish is to bless you with your soulmate or a perfect match.

I have compiled bible verses about waiting on love to inspire you.

Read and be blessed.

Final Words of Encouragement

1.  God’s time is the best

Life is a mystery

If you rush into anything without God’s approval, you may never find happiness

God is the provider of all good and perfect things

So, when we need anything, we must be humble enough to seek his help

But it may not come quickly

God may sometimes let us go through a transition period to find happiness

And we must be patient with him all through the way

Think about it for a second

Can you search the heart of a man?

That’s why we must let him make the choices for us

Of course, not just by sitting down but through prayer

He has promised to fulfill our desires if we ask

So, pray without season and remind God of your needs each time

2.  Don’t get moved by fornication

I will tell you the truth

fornication is a terrible sin for God

It takes away pride from the body and brings shame to our lives

God also dislike it when we allow our holy bodies to be a temple for sin

So, while waiting for love and the right person, be firm on your righteous character

Some men or women why tempt you to fall

They would want to make se*ual advances that will lead you to sin

This you must resist through prayers

Always be firm to share the word with your partner

There is no need to hurry

In marriage, God allows it

3.  It will finally come with great joy

Yes, there is light at the end of the tunnel

God rewards faithfulness and blesses us when we with patiently for him

He blessed Abraham for his patience and so many other faithful in the bible

At the right time, God will bless you with everything you desire
