I don't think that those words mean that God will bring a mate into our lives if we do nothing but obey the commandments.
If I say to myself, "Well, there is no commandment to get married and so as long as I do all the things that are commanded, the right woman will be delivered by UPS (when I'm not home, of course ) even though I take no action to meet the ladies."
Wondering whether UPS will require that I sign for her or will just leave her leaning against the wall in the lobby,
No John, you got it all wrong, what i quoted at first was a line from the Bible. God is very much involved in every aspect of our lives, incluiding marriage, but He wants us to seek Him first and to please Him first (by obeying the commandments) before even thinking about finding a spouse. When you concentrate to seek God first He will attend to your needs. Of course that doesnt mean one must not take action when it comes to meet the right person, on the contrary, we must make the effort for all the things that are worthwhile require so, but above it all, make ourselves worthy of our future spouses by striving to become the men/women God has intended us to be....and how can one achieve that?,why seeking His kingdom and obeying His commandments. All this i say it based in His word (Matt 6:33) and Psalm 37: 4-7.
