I will be writing more for those who are alone because they can love God and serve God in a way that the others can not do says Apostle Paul in the I Corinthians 7:40 In my judgment, she is happier if she stays as she is and I think that I too have the Spirit of God. In 1 Cor 7:7 I wish that all men were as I am. But each man has his own gift from God; one has this gift, another has that. In 1 Cor 7:8 Now to the unmarried and the widows I say: It is good for them to stay unmarried, as I am. Because Apostle Paul sees some thing new in this Singles not that Marriage is sinful nor he is aginst it. He gives reasons for it.

1. God has a plan for every one. We can not force every one to marry. In 1 Cor 7:17 Nevertheless, each one should retain the place in life that the Lord assigned to him and to which God has called him. This is the rule I lay down in all the churches.

2. He tells about the burden one has to take for his family. In 1 Cor 7:28 But if you do marry, you have not sinned; and if a virgin marries, she has not sinned. But those who marry will face many troubles in this life, and I want to spare you this.

3. The Single Person who is not yet married has more freedom to serve the Lord. In 1 Cor 7:32 I would like you to be free from concern. An unmarried man is concerned about the Lord's affairs--how he can please the Lord.

4. The Single’s interest is undivided as in 1 Cor 7:34 and his interests are divided. An unmarried woman or virgin is concerned about the Lord's affairs: Her aim is to be devoted to the Lord in both body and spirit. But a married woman is concerned about the affairs of this world--how she can please her husband.

5. Apostle Paul was more practical in his advise to the Singles. In 1 Cor 7:35 I am saying this for your own good, not to restrict you, but that you may live in a right way in undivided devotion to the Lord.

6. We need not to act in a hurry as per the world’s custom we can use the common sence in doing any thing considering the situation and our life. In 1 Cor 7:37 But the man who has settled the matter in his own mind, who is under no compulsion but has control over his own will, and who has made up his mind not to marry the virgin--this man also does the right thing. 1 Cor 7:38 So then, he who marries the virgin does right, but he who does not marry her does even better.

7. We are basically belongs to the Lord. Our main concern is to please God and Go the kingdom of God. We are not of this World. In 1 Cor 7:39 A woman is bound to her husband as long as he lives. But if her husband dies, she is free to marry anyone she wishes, but he must belong to the Lord.

So do not worry about any thing put all your problems before the Lord. In Phil 4:6 Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. When you do this as in Phil 4:7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
