Sir, a prophet told me I would marry a man of God and that I would relocate because I won’t find who to marry in my current location. I have never thought about relocation but it happened. However, the minister of God who I had an attraction for in the church where I worshipped had charisma but lacked the strength of character. More so, something keeps telling me that he’s my would-be husband, but I keep rejecting it. I consider leaving the church, but I believe He led me there for a purpose, especially in the department where I serve. What should I do?
Issue 1: A prophet told you that your husband-to-be might be a minister.
Issue 2: The minister you met in the church you attend has charisma, but he’s devoid of a good character, and a voice keeps telling you he’s your husband.
Issue 3: You planned to leave the church, but you’re held back by your role in the department you serve.
Response to issue 1,
What has God told you about your marital life? It’s not enough to hear what a prophet or man of God says concerning your marital life, you should also know what God is saying.
What God says to you would make you more convinced rather than confused. When God speaks to you personally and someone else says what He told you, it brings confirmation, but if the opposite is the case, confusion sets in.
Don’t have your eyes or mind fixated on marrying a MOG when God hasn’t said that to you, otherwise you’d fulfill someone else’s prophecy or the devil would help you fulfill it.
However, let God lead and guide you because for as many that are led by the Spirit of God, not pastors or prophets are the sons of God.
MOGs are only there to guide, they’re not to take the position of God in your life.
To issue 2,
Marriage is not sustained by charisma but through character, and it must be an enviable one at that.
Ask those who have celebrated their silver and golden jubilee in marriage about what kept them that far, one of those things they would tell you is that character matters in who you marry.
If you marry charisma and not watch out for his character, you’d be frustrated in such a marriage.
And to the voice that keeps telling you, he’s one, test the spirit behind the voice. If it’s actually God’s, there won’t be a contradiction in his life and character, especially as a minister of the Gospel.
God speaks gently and He doesn’t coerce or pressure you to anything that’s against His will (word). But the devil contradicts God’s word most times he speaks and he compels.
For issue 3, let the leaving of the church be divinely orchestrated, and don’t be emotional about it.
If you leave, God would raise someone else to take up your role because no one is indispensable in the hand of God.
However, if He wants you to leave, you’d clearly see the handwriting on the wall (especially when it is according to His will).
Don’t leave God’s work because of someone else’s irrational behavior.
If he tries to victimize you due to your refusal (some might go that length), pray to God to relocate him to another parish. After all, you have not “touched His anointed” you have only prayed to God to reposition him so you can serve God with godly fear and reverence, and not with persecution.
Conclusively, to everyone reading this, let God lead you to who He has prepared for you to marry. He knows the place. He would orchestrate the event that would take you there (you can also pray for that). And He knows the person you would marry.
Don’t let any MOG bamboozle you with, “God said so and so is your future spouse,” what is He saying to you on it? Many can’t hear God for themselves because they’re too lazy to pay the price to hear Him, especially those who are churchgoers.
God speaks. He’s alive. And He’s not dead. Pay the price to draw close to Him before the pressure of finding who to marry falls on you like a coconut drop that’s obeying the law of gravity.
Till I come your way next time on another Q&A episode, take charge and stay strong.
