Nowadays the twilight zone before a relationship becomes official is more confusing than ever before.
With so many different words used to describe your relationship status. Dating? Courting? Talking to each other? You oftentimes forget that the primary purpose of that season is to evaluate whether or not he is the one whom God has for you.
Even though you might have an idea of what you consider ‘husband material’, you might not know what signs to look for. And the last thing you want is to let your feelings get in the way of your true happiness.
While it easy to define that he’s not the one based on his actions, there are also signs that will show you that he is husband material. In fact, you can use these 50 Questions to identify “The One” once you finished reading this blog post.
So before you jump into a relationship, ask yourself ‘How to know he is the one?’ and use these 10 Godly Signs to evaluate if he is right for you.

1. His actions speak louder than his words
I said it before and I will say it again. If somebody shows you who they are, believe them.
The one thing I advise you to observe early in the dating phase is if he keeps his word? A guy who is in it for the long run wants to be trustworthy and make sure he’s reliable.
He won’t say one thing and do another. But rather show you with his actions that he is serious about you.
Many men will speak about all the things they want to do, but only a few will actually follow up and put in the work. And they will only do so for the woman they value.
2. He knows what he wants
We live in a time where millions of people are at the tip of our thumbs and index fingers. And that has influenced a man’s desire to commit to one woman.
A lot of them are scared that they might find someone ‘better’ after they are already committed to you, but if you ask them what ‘better’ is, they can’t seem to put it in words.
If he is the one, that will not be the case for him. He will have identified you as the right one for himself, based on your personality, actions and most likely your looks (yes attraction does play a role).
A man who knows what he wants will show you by stating his relationship goals early on without being afraid that you might get too hopeful. He will have a vision for the relationship he is looking for and who he wants in it.
3. He pursues you
We all know the saying and the movie “He’s not that into you”.
One of the many signs that you are dating someone that just isn’t that into you is that he will not put in an effort to be with you. Every interaction is initiated by you and oftentimes every date is planned by you too.
However, if he is the one, then he will actively pursue you. He will call, he will text and he will enjoy planning a date or two to make you happy.
4. He’s your answered prayer
While I really don’t want to encourage any of you to treat God like a Genie who will answer an unrealistic list of superficial requirements and qualities. I want to encourage you that God knows you and knows the man he has for you.
If your sincere prayer for a godly man includes godly characteristics, then you will know that he is the one if he possesses them or the fruit in his life shows that he is working towards them.
Remember that God has beautifully and wonderfully created each one of us. He knows exactly who is right for you and will send them when the time is right. Therefore you won’t have to settle, compromise or drop your standards if they are God-given.
