I think God lays down something different for each person's life. for example some are called to be ennuchs and never marry like the Apostle Paul while others are allowed to marry and raise a family like the other Apostles. That is why a personal and intimate relationship with God is so important so that we do not try and live someone else's life but the life God has planned for us according to the laws He has placed on our hearts
that's a doctrine of devils.
Jesus and Paul both said if a man can do kingdom work unmarried he'll likely be happier and more successful - makes sense, right?
how can you be off to Macedonia every other month when your wife is home alone in Japan?
we make our decisions prayerfully based on the morality and instructions laid out in God's Word, and He works providentially to make it all work for our good.
i think some folks check for robins on their windowsills, or 4 blue volkswagens in a row, or livershivers as signs that God wants them to marry BillyBob or go to work at the chocolate factory.
when maybe its a matter of living as we're told and making the best choices possible and living with the consequences. God works all things for our good.
