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!
