8 Reasons To Stop Stressing and Start Living. Bro. Zeru went on his knees without warning, smiling.

He slowly, romantically, took out a ring and proposed.

“Are you willing to marry me?

Sister Sube closed her eyes for a moment before landing a deafening slap on the poor brother’s face!

Sister Sube began. 

“What have you been doing all this time? For all the endless vigils I had praying for a husband, for all the times I fasted, including dry fasts, for all the nights of desperation and depression wondering why God abandoned me, for all the times I thought I would never marry again because something was wrong with me, for all the times I nearly ended up with an unbeliever out of desperation, for all the times I thought I was not beautiful and something was wrong with me, for all the times I thought there was a generational curse and a warped lineage, take one more,” and with that, she gave him one more deafening slap!

Then she smiled. “My answer is Yes, I will marry you!”

By this time, Bro. Zeru didn’t know what to make of it, whether to cry or laugh.

Sister Sube pulled him up and gave him a hug. I love you too and I will marry you!”

8 Reasons To Stop Stressing and Start Living 

That story is humorous, but it also illustrates what waiting singles go through in their bid to get married.

But I want to tell you something this morning: Stop worrying!

Actually, when you worry, you are out of faith! That is why Jesus said 

“Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met. “Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.”  (Mat 6:33-34, MSG)

Here are eight reasons why you should stop worrying as singles and couples 

8 Reasons To Stop Stressing and Start Living 

1. Your spouse is alive, breathing, and probably praying to meet you as well. It is not as if he or she is just about to be born. Rest in God’s arms, that He will cause your paths to cross.

Couples, stop worrying about how things will turn out. You are now married. God has you covered.

2. Your marriage is in the future, but it is in God’s past. In God, it already happened. It is a live match for you, but for God, it is a replay! It has happened. Have faith in its manifestation and stop worrying.

Couples, God provided before you began. Learn to stay in faith and enter into rest in Him.

3. Worry adds nothing to you except anxiety, depression and doubt in God’s promises. So don’t weary yourself unnecessarily.

Couples, enjoy your marriage rather than endure one another.

4. No matter how many weddings take place daily, nobody can marry your spouse! That is the reality! So, relax in God’s promise. It will happen!

Couples, stay faithful to one another. Trust God to keep you together. 

5. In God, your wedding is never late, it actually becomes the latest in town. When you are in God’s season and timing, you are never late because God has a purpose for everything.

6. The Lord is your shepherd. He will not lead you wrong. A sheep never worries. Not once! He only follows! 

And even after the wedding, you keep following Him. He has the blueprint! 

7. God will not bring you to the place of birth and not cause you to bring forth. In the same way, God will not bring you to the place of marriage and not cause a spouse to show up! Believe that!

And God will not bring you together and deny you of fruitfulness. He has it all figured out! 

8. God is more concerned than you are concerned. It is just your ability to key into that faith and judge God faithful over your marital life. 

The same goes for those who are already married.

Whatever you are trusting God for, business breakthroughs, the fruit of the womb, and more, they are in God’s past. They are already done!

I want you to stop worrying and step into faith. Faith is a realm of possibilities. Great things happen there! Trust God for the best.

8 Reasons To Stop Stressing and Start Living 

He has not left you nor abandoned you. The devil wants you to believe that, but the devil is always a liar. 

God has you in mind. He has it all planned out!

Let me conclude with this scripture:

“I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.”  (Jer 29:11, MSG)

God knows what He is doing. The man may be confused, but believe me, God is not confused about your life. God knows what He is doing! He has it all planned out!

Rest in that. No more worries! Rest in His plan. Something great is working out for you. Believe it and you will see its manifestation! It is well with you! 

I see God bringing you into the reality of His plans for you. I see God bringing speed into your life. I see a new day for you! Believe it and you will see the hand of the Lord!
