I am so excited about this post!
Really, I am sure that after reading this post, you will be mightily blessed.
I am going to tell you about the famous story of three Hebrew boys and a burning furnace of fiery fire.
I can almost hear you wondering what that has got to do with your relationship and your life.
Oh, it is more than connected.
This story will show you how that the whole narrative of “get married quickly because you are no longer getting any younger” shouldn’t bother you. Age has got nothing on you. Why? Because God has got you.
This post will show why you shouldn’t bow to the whole “marriage pressure” of the society, culture or even your parents and closest friends.
It will show you why you shouldn’t bow down to the idol of pressure because of the fear of getting older.
Some weeks back, I saw how this story is really more than three boys who would rather burn than bow because of their faith in God.
It is also about how they entered the fire and came out without the smell of smoke.
You need to read this scripture in 3D.
Look at it for a minute, beginning from where King Nebuchadnezzar ordered that Shedrach, Meshach and Abednego be thrown into the fire. (NLT version is dope by the way).
23. So Shedrach, Meshach and Abednego, securely tied, fell into the roaring flames.
See what happened afterwards, people of God.
27. Then the high officers, officials, governors, and advisers crowded around them and saw that the fire had not touched them. Not a hair on their heads was singed and their clothing was not scorched. They didn’t even smell of smoke!
Amazing Stuff! They didn’t smell like SMOKE, they didn’t smell like FIRE, they didn’t smell like WHAT THEY HAD BEEN THROUGH.
What does this tell you?
It really doesn’t matter if you are single or if you have been single for so long a time that you are getting older and more mature in your singleness.
The Lord can turn your story around, you will not even SMELL LIKE WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN THROUGH.
When your marriage manifests ehn, you wouldn’t smell like SINGLE again sef. He can make all that “age problem” fizzle away.
Isn’t that super cool?
So tell somebody to tell somebody about this good news.
Never forget that when the Lord changes a man’s story, He changes everything about him or her.
That’s when you will start hearing things like, “Ah! Really?
You mean you are this age and that age?
You look so young!
May the Lord grant more understanding in Jesus name.
