A Man of God is the description given to a man that follows God in every way, who obeys His commands with joy, who does not live for the things of this life but for the things of eternity, who willingly serves his God.
Perhaps Micah 6:8 sums up the man of God in one neat verse: “He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”
He does the opposite to what the world does or approves of; he goes “against the grain” of society because he knows these things displease God; he considers those who are “disadvantaged” or those rejected by society, those that are lonely or despairing; he is a listener to other people’s problems.
Here are 3 Things You Will Never Doubt About a Man of God…
His Love for God
It will be clear that he loves the Lord. He is not fickle. He does not waver. He is not lukewarm.
A man of God is not the guy who goes to church on Sunday, but does whatever he pleases during the week. He is a solid steadfast soldier of the Lord.
A man of God knows that he’s a sinner and in need of a Savior. He is praying and seeking the Lord as often as he can. This lets you know that you have a good leader and husband in the future.
The Scriptures tell us plainly that serving God and his plan and design for our life should be our first priority.
“He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.” – Matthew 10:35
Serving God comes before every other consideration in his life including himself, his family, his church, his employer or his country.
His Love For You
A man of God will not play games. He makes his intentions with you very clear. He respects you and respects the boundaries you have set.
A man of God will care DEEPLY about your relationship with God, knowing that it is making you more into the image the godly woman he needs as a husband. He leaves you alone so you can spend time with God. He doesn’t smother you and invade on your relationship with Christ.
A man of God who is pursuing you is also passionate about protecting you.
A man of God will never make you worry that he might take the next exit and leave you traveling alone – because he has committed to making the choice to love you. Every day.
A man of God will be praying for you and with you. He’ll talk to God about you before getting into a commitment with you.
His Love For Others
He doesn’t have deceitful motives. His intentions are good. He takes pride in serving others.
A man of God is polite- not just to the women he’s interested in, but to everyone around him. He should be able to converse with older people, ask if he can be of any assistance in any situation, volunteer to clean ect. Yes, he should open your door, pull out your seat, ask if you need anything and so on, but he should also be a gentleman to everyone he knows, not just to you.
He is someone who can take charge of what God has given him. He is able to stand on his own two feet and guide others as he is being led by God.
He is loyal in all that he does. His goals are honorable and solid. He has a future and a purpose for his life and in all things glorify God.
“But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” –Matthew 6:33
