“Where are you ?” Lesson #5

“ Where are you at with dating ? ”


Intro: When you get married one day, would you like to have your wedding ceremony outside or inside and why?



  1. Genesis 3:9, Genesis 2:18-24 God saw Adams need for a wife, and promised Adam that he would send him someone perfect for him.
    1. Gen 2:18 God promised Adam he would send him his wife, but God did not tell Adam when or how his wife would come, God wanted Adam to be patient and wait on his will.
      1. Psalms 27:14 Many youth and young adults today do not want to wait on God to bring them the right person, they become impatient and enter into wrong dating relationships.
      2. Genesis 2:20 “No suitable helper was found” before God designed Eve there was no good selection for Adams wife, only cows, monkeys, goats and dogs.
    2. Matt 6:33 If Adam would have not waited on Gods will and timing he would have settled for a cow or a dog, and would have had many compatibility issues, communication issues, abuse and misunderstandings, because the dog was not Gods will for Adam .
  2. Gal 6:9 , Prov 16:25 Those who don’t wait on Gods will or timing and settle for someone who is not Gods will end up with many needles problems and are like Adam settling for a dog.
    1. 1 Cor 15:33 There are many youth who settle for someone who is not serving God, and they end up influenced to do wrong, many times falling into sexual sin, and backsliding.
      1. Eph 4:27 Many Christians start off on fire for God, but enter into wrong dating relationships because they don’t want to be alone, and end up far from God.
      2. Gen 2:19-20 God promised Adam he would bring him a wife, but then God had Adam wait on his perfect timing, and God gave Adam work to do while he waited!
    2. S.S. 2:7, 3:5, 8:4 We need to be patient and wait on God and his timing for a husband or wife, spending this time serving God in the ministry rather than chasing boyfriends or girlfriends that are not Gods will for us, if we wait on God he will bless our lives in every way!                              Don’t settle for a dog!!! What will you choose?



  1. What are some of the many problems that come about when youth and young adults don’t wait on Gods will and enter into wrong dating relationships?
  2. Why do you think that so many youth and young adults become impatient and enter into wrong dating relationships rather than wait on Gods perfect will?
  3. What are some of the ways we as youth and young adults can serve God in the ministry in our youth rather than spend our time chasing a boyfriend or girlfriend?
  4. Does anyone here have a testimony of how God has blessed your life because you chose to wait on Gods timing and perfect will rather than settle for the wrong person?



End: Pray for all those who either are in dating relationships that aren’t of God, or those who are having a hard time waiting on Gods perfect will and timing, then take requests.
