AVOIDING A BAD MARRIAGE.
By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome PhD.
After salvation, the most important choice you will
need to make is who to marry. This choice is so
important that if you miss it, you will suffer for
long, if you get it right then you will enjoy forever.
A bad marriage can affect every other area of your
This subject is so important, so many married
people are hoping to be single again so as to
make the right choice. If you are single please
don’t just be in a hurry to get married, you have
the best opportunity to prepare for it.
For two people to come together to live in peace
and harmony, they must agree spiritually, mentally
Just like an elephant cannot marry
an ant so also a believer cannot marry an
unbeliever. If an elephant marries an ant how
would they live, if a goat marries a fish where
would they meet? You must look for a Godly man
or a Godly woman to marry, nothing can beat this.
The devil’s primary target is the family. He knows
that everyone belongs to a family and if he can
make two wrong people meet then he has
succeeded affecting the community and nations
Ignore your age and the pressure for a
moment, the pressure in a wrong marriage is far
worse. God has somebody for you but you must
set your priorities right. What do you need in a
woman? What do you need in a man?
Marriage is not about what you want, it is about
who you need, that will make you better while you
make him better. It is about destiny.
That is why
you must know your purpose before you get
married. Genesis 2:18.
You must pray before you choose. God knows the
best person for you, it is only wise to seek His will.
It is very easy to know God’s will when sex is not
involved. The moment sex is involved and you
want to know His will then He will blank you out.
Why? Because you have broken His first Law of NO
SEX before marriage.
If you have had sex in the past then you need to
repent totally and stay away from each other for
sometime then you can seek the face of God.
Your marriage will not be hell on earth. Your
marriage will be honorable in the name of Jesus
Don’t marry for sex, don’t marry because you are
of age, don’t marry because you are getting old,
don’t marry because you are lonely, don’t marry
because you need someone to support you
financially, don’t marry because you mistakenly got
pregnant, don’t marry because you don’t want to
lose the person, don’t marry because of family
pressures, don’t marry because you like the idea of
marriage and admire every wedding gown you see,
don’t marry because all your friends are getting
But get married because you want to fulfill destiny.
Get married because you want to be a help mate.
As a man, get married because you want to fulfill
your purpose. God will help you in choosing, please
let His will be done. Amen!
Forward to the singles you love.
God bless you!
