Engagement is a time of great excitement, busyness, and preparation. It is important not to allow this season to go by without being intentional about the heart work that the Holy Spirit wants to do in this time. Whether you are getting married for the very first time or this is not your first rodeo, let’s take a look at Bible verses for engagement.

Proverbs 16:9 - “In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.”

One of the most question-filled times in one’s life can be wedding planning. Between caterers, venues, pastors, musicians, seating charts and finding the attire, wedding planning can easily become overwhelming. It is so valuable to remember in the midst of decision making that we can make plans and have dreams, but in the end, we need to leave the results up to God. He is the One who ultimately holds our wedding days. He knows the weather, the hiccups that will go wrong, and the sweet moments that we will have with loved ones.

It is easy to have an attitude of being controlling, and so it is very important that we release that in surrender to the Lord. He cares for us, and we can absolutely make plans, but it is vital to regularly seek Him out in the midst of them.

Proverbs 16:2 - “All a persons ways seem pure to them, but motives are weighed by the LORD.”

Engagement season is one of the most tempting times. You know in your hearts that you are committed to each other, but not under a covenant with God or the law yet. It can be easy to make compromising decisions and push the boundaries you worked hard for in dating. Passion takes over and leaves people with regrets if they are not careful.
