Happy And Godly Marriage Is A Scam?

Happy And Godly Marriage Is A Scam?


I know quite a few Christian people who have told me they would rather stay single than get married, not because the Lord has commanded them to do so.

Their reason is actually simple and logical: most of the Christian marriages they have seen has filled them with dread.

The experience of other Christian families distorted or coloured the truth of God’s word in their lives. These terrible experiences caused them to believe that the idea of a happy and truly godly Christian home or family is a scam.

Well, I am here to tell you today to shut down that stinking thinking. The devil wants you to think that it is impossible to get married to a Christian man or woman who will love you, and who will always be there with you forever.

This is the reason why some Christians have given room for things like “cheating” in the relationship they have not even entered into.

So, they feel like, “Abeg jare, all these Christian men or women are not all that holy, they will eventually cheat on their partners” and all of that funny stuff.

Sometimes, these deadly thoughts enter into your mind unconsciously, and before you know what’s up, you are already entering into a relationship and marriage with the wrong mindset.

Listen. The word of God should be your only reality, not the experience of others. That you know a tongue-talking Christian man or woman who cheated or committed adultery doesn’t mean that the same has to be your experience.

The bible says in the book of Prov. 5:19 that the man should always be ravished with the love of the wife of his youth. This means that God is really against committing adultery, cheating and so on.

It also means that you can pray that your future spouse will always be ravished with your love and not that of a stranger.

God will definitely answer such prayers because it is in accordance with His will.

In fact, this kind of prayer has the potential to chase away liars and cheats from your life.

Therefore, stop entertaining such dangerous thoughts that are obviously against the will of God for your life.

The truth is there are lots and lots of Christian couples who are living in line with the scriptures.

Don’t allow the Devil to paint this picture of the impossibility of having a lovely Christian home.

Fill your heart with thoughts of how your home will be a place of joy, love and peace, not the other way round because as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.

May the Lord grant more understanding in Jesus name, Amen!

Your Marital Status Can Change This Year

Your Marital Status Can Change This Year


Isaac and Rebekah’s love story is a super interesting one for me and inspirational too.

You see, Abraham was so concerned about whom Isaac would eventually get married to that he had to take steps to ensure Isaac got married to a lady from his country. He didn’t want him getting married to Canaanite women.

We know how this story goes. Abraham sent his servant to his country who eventually found Rebekah by the help of God, and by the well.

If you read that story carefully, you would know that Rebekah did not leave her father’s house for the well that morning with the knowing that she was going to water her future father-in-law’s servant’s camels.

She did not ever imagine that there would be a radical shift in her status that day. But it happened, people of God, it happened.

Rebekah woke up single and ended up married before the end of that day. Miss to Mrs in ONE day.

And even though, we did not get to see Rebekah’s prayer points prior to that time or know if she really cared about being married, we sure do know that she wanted to be married because she promptly agreed to follow Abraham’s servant that same day.

If she didn’t want to get married, she would have hesitated. But God who orchestrates events knew that her willingness was not going to be an issue.

What is the moral lesson of this story? Simple! It costs God nothing, absolutely nothing to change your marital status this year. He is God; He is a great God, and He specializes in doing great things.

I believe the reason we do not see great things happen in our lives on a constant basis is because we have limited our God. We have placed God in a box and have compartmentalized what He can and cannot do or will not do.

We have even told Him things like, “This is what I know you can do, so I am asking you for a rented apartment, but as for my own house, I know you can give me, but I really do not think you will do it.”

We don’t say these things out loud, but our thoughts reach out to God loud and clear.
S
eriously, it is time to believe God for the impossible this year. If God can arrange somebody’s marriage in twenty four hours, a month is more than enough time for Him to make something awesome happen in your own life too.

Who is going to believe God with me for a miracle this year? Nothing, I repeat, NOTHING is too hard for the Lord to do. Hold on to that thought and see God work wonders in your life.

CONFESSION OF THE DAY
Lord, I believe that you can change my marital status this year.

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Lord, help me to trust and focus on your greatness regardless of what current circumstances are saying.

THOUGHT OF THE DAY
Nothing is too hard for God to do

ACTION PLAN OF THE DAY
I decide today to trust in your greatness today

The Best Way To Love Your Lover

The Best Way To Love Your Lover


Let me begin with a story I once read about a Christian couple. Before their marriage, they were the best of friends. They used to laugh together, play together, go out with friends together and even more importantly, pray together.

They were individuals who were really passionate about God, passionate about the kingdom of God being established on Earth and they were willing to do anything to make God happy.

As a matter of fact, they took their personal relationship with God very seriously. As much as they loved each other, they wouldn’t trade their personal quiet times for anything.

Eventually, they got married. The first six months of their marriage was heaven on earth. You could literally walk into their home and know that the peace in the atmosphere was legit.

However, after the first six months, things began to get ugly. They couldn’t believe that they were capable of hating each other even to the point of wanting to get a divorce. Their marriage was on the verge of crashing until a mentor stepped in.

Thank God for the timely intervention of the mentor. The mentor helped them trace how love and peace evaporated from their home.
After their counseling sessions with their mentor and pastor, they soon realized they had become so busy that they had started to ignore their fellowship with their Father in heaven.

In fact, lack of fellowship with God was the reason why their relationship was on the verge of crumbling. They were stunned; they could almost not believe that their relationship was so dependent on their relationship with God.

Here is the lesson: if you really want to love your bae or boo, never take your love for God for granted.

If you think about this, it makes a whole lot of kingdom sense. Look at what Jesus said in John 15:9, “I have loved you even as the Father loved me. Remain in my love.” We all know just how much time Jesus spent with His Father. And it showed in how He related with people, including His friends and his foes.

Jesus told the Father to forgive those who crucified Him. That is an impossible thing to do on a normal, natural flesh level. How do you forgive those who murdered and insulted you shamelessly? It takes a person who has been with Love Himself, God, to do something like that.

So, if you really and truly want to love your lover, spend time with Love Himself. He will teach you how to love the first- Corinthians- thirteen way.

CONFESSION OF THE DAY
I love my boo or bae the God-kind of way every day.

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Lord, help me not to take my relationship with you for granted.

THOUGHT OF THE DAY
John 15: 9: I have loved you even as the Father loved me. Remain in my love (NLT).

ACTION PLAN OF THE DAY
I choose to hold my relationship with God in high esteem.

Concerning Grand Proposals And Marriages

Concerning Grand Proposals And Marriages


Some couple of weeks back, there was this trending proposal video on Instagram that got everybody oohing and aahing and daydreaming and fantasizing, especially the ladies or should I say most especially the ladies.
The way and manner in which the guy went about the proposal was beyond amazing.

First, the proposal took place in Thailand and he used some fire display sorta thing to propose to the lady with a song in the background, telling the lady how he will fight kung fu for her love. Lol!

It was super amazing, and I am telling you about it because of the comments I read after watching the video.

Some ladies said things like, “I hope my future husband is seeing this right now” and all of that stuff.

Seeing all these comments made me think about how some ladies might begin to think the grander the proposal, the deeper or truer the love or that the weight of the man’s love for them is commensurate to the way he proposes to them.

And some ladies might be even be like, “After all, if the proposal is magnificent, it must be proof that he really adores me, loves me and values me.”

So they begin to subtly pressurize their boos into giving them a proposal that is gram worthy; a proposal that will shut down the internet and then shut down the man’s pocket or the lady’s pocket, depending on how desperate she is for an impressive proposal.

I have a message for you today.

First, a grand proposal is not equal to a grand marriage. Second, that the proposal isn’t grand does not mean Boo loves you any less.

Don’t let what is happening on social media fool you. As believers in godly relationships, we are not to be tossed to and fro by every wind of social media doctrine.

Don’t pressurize your boo into measuring up to social media standards.

Who even set the standards in the first place?
The only standard with which we measure true love is the standard that Love Himself, Jesus, displayed on the cross – Sacrifice.

“Does he love like Christ?” is the most important thing to consider, and not if he proposes in a gram worthy style.

If boo doesn’t have the resources with which to throw you that grand proposal you have always dreamed of, then think about those times he sacrificed something for you, maybe his time, money he didn’t have so much of and so on.

Now, don’t get me wrong. I am not saying grand proposals are wrong nor am I saying it is wrong for a lady to want to be treated in such an exquisite fashion. If the resources are readily available, why not?

My point is this: avoid pressurizing your partner into doing something he is not capable of doing at the moment.

Proposals are short-lived, and they are not the test of true love. Sacrifice is the test of true love. SACRIFICE.

I leave you with these words from a really wise woman. She said, “Romance isn’t measured by how viral your proposal goes because how a man proposes isn’t what makes him romantic. It is how a man purposes to lay down his life that makes him romantic.”

CONFESSION OF THE DAY
I am not moved by what I see on social media. I am only moved by the word of God that abides forever.

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Lord, help me to stay focused on your standard for my relationship and not social media standard.

THOUGHT OF THE DAY
A grand proposal is not equal to a grand marriage.

ACTION PLAN OF THE DAY
I decide today to be influenced by the word of God and not social media

BIBLE READING OF THE DAY
1 Corinthians 13: 7: Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
