Kicking off our new collection, Single, Dating, Engaged, Married, Ben Stuart dives into what scripture says about singleness. We see that there is a purpose in the season of singleness, and we have to get a relationship with God right before we can get a relationship with a guy or girl. Ben reminds us not to miss the benefits of the season we are in because we are pining away for the benefits of another season.

Key Takeaway

Singleness is a gift from God that has a purpose. It is a time to devote yourself to the Lord. God encourages us to use the freedom that comes with singleness to please Him and build His kingdom.

1.  Singleness is a gift from God.

2.  What we want is not always what is best for us; what is best for us is not always what we desire.

3.  God puts us in a season of singleness so we can draw close to Him.

4.    We must stop looking for a partner to do what only God can do.

5.    Don’t let your longing for a marriage cause you to miss out on your single season.

6.  Leverage your singleness and maximize this season with the freedom and time God has given you.

7.    Singleness is an opportunity to please the Lord.

8.    Singleness is for devotion to the Lord.


“God has ordained a season of singleness not for us to fill it with distractions or career ambitions, but to pursue an undistracted devotion to Him.”
