How will you know if God approves of your relationship? Here are 3 signs that God approves of your relationship. If you want to know what God wants for you individually, you have to first know what God wants for all his people generally. While God does care about the personal desires you have for a relationship, God is more concerned with your willingness to serve him in your life. John states:. You call me Teacher and Lord, and you are right, for so I am. One sign that God approves of your relationship is if this partnership is increasing your motivation for ministry rather than decreasing it.

A few months back, I happened to meet this girl who came to my church. She started coming to church because she has a broken family, and she wanted God to intervene in her life and help her. After a few months of coming to church, she surrendered her life to Christ and accepted Him as her personal Savior. During these times, she and I used to talk a lot on the phone, and eventually we became really close and started liking each other. Right now I am very much in love with her and want to marry her. I want only the will of God to be established in my life.
