The Divine Matchmaker
PRELUDE “Two souls with but a single thought, two hearts that beat as one.”? ~John Keats, Finding true love is priceless. For many, living a lifetime falling more in love with the one you love is only a dream. Can you put a price tag on finding the one who loves you?heart & soul?solely for your heart? There’s no monetary equivalent to finding the Love-of-your-Life. Wouldn’t it be great if you had someone, versed in the ways of love, to help find your One-and-Only? That’s what hundreds of men and women do on the hit reality TV show The Millionaire Matchmaker. For tens of thousands of dollars, millionaire bachelors hire Patti Stanger, the Millionaire Matchmaker, to help them find the only thing they haven’t acquired, their True Love. Patti has a massive index of the most eligible men and women in Southern California and boasts of having a 98% match success rate. Watch out e-harmony! If we all had a matchmaker this successful to help us find Mr. or Miss. Right and avoid Mr. or Miss. Wrong, it might make some of us feel a little better about our chances of finding our true love. Though Patti’s operation is impressive, wouldn’t it be great to have a matchmaker who had an even bigger Rolodex than her? Let’s say someone who had access to the most eligible individuals across the country or, for you international types, across the world? You might even feel better about your chances of finding your soul mate, if this matchmaker was a personal family friend, had watched you grow up, knew pretty much everything about you and had offered their matchmaking services when ever you were in need of them? I think many of us would. I hope it won’t come as a surprise, when I tell you that I employed someone much like this to help me find Casey, the absolute Love of my Life. Without hesitation, I can say, that the time, training and money I invested totally paid off. Like my matchmaker told me, you can’t put a price tag on finding everlasting love. If you’re single, you might be thinking you would be interested in getting his business card. (Even if you’re not “in the market” right now, it might be good to have his contact info for some other time.) I promise, if you’ve seen the film Hitch, He’s the real life Alex Hitchens, only better. He’s incredibly smooth?a true Love Doctor. He’s helped even the most romantically challenged individuals find their way down love’s, occasionally bumpy, path. His staff services a 24-hour a day help line. He has a global database and connections everywhere. He is the world’s foremost expert on love and a divine matchmaker. I relied upon his advice every step of the way and now I am hopelessly in love with the woman of my dreams. He led me into a romance with the right person at the right time and for that I am forever appreciative. Surprisingly, most people have heard of my matchmaker, but had no idea that he was so proficient in the art. You may be asking who this love guru is? His name is God. While many lovers often believe they are truly a match made in heaven, few would go as far as to say that God, himself, was their Matchmaker. I think this may be an expertise of his that many grossly under acknowledged today, but is clearly attributed to God throughout the Scripture. Abraham was a believer in God’s keen matchmaking ability. This is undeniable, just look at the instruction he gives to his servant sent to pick up a wife for his son, Isaac. He says, “God will send his angel ahead of you to get a wife for my son.” (Gen. 24: 7). Now if you’ve heard this story before, you might gloss over this verse and continue with the story. But if you stop and really think about what Abraham is saying, it is a bit bizarre. I’ve never heard anyone talk like this. I’ve never heard a pastor preach on this? Actually, if anyone did say to me that God’s angel was going to pick out my spouse, I would probably recommend an excellent twelve-step program I know of. For most of us, the idea of winged angelic beings making people fall in love isn’t totally a foreign concept, but we just expect to find this type of thing on Valentine’s cards or in Greek Mythology, not in the Bible. So either Abraham was in need of some serious rehabilitation or maybe the person whom God called his “good friend” was on to something (Is. 41:8). The man sent to get Isaac’s “unknown” bride also believed God was a matchmaker. Abraham had instructed him to get a wife from his hometown, Nahor. The servant came to a spring outside the city, where all the young ladies came to get water. He prayed that God would reveal the young lady to him by a specific sign. He would know it was her if when he asked for a drink of water and she would not only give him a drink but also offer to water all ten of his camels (an act that would take hours of labor to accomplish). When this happened, he would take it as a sign that God was “working graciously behind the scenes.
