Relationship And Marriage Matters was taught by Rev. Dunamis Okunowo on the 13th of March 2022 at Shouts of Grace Center, Joke Plaza, Beside Trans Amusement Park, Bodija-UI Road, Ibadan.

In his teaching, Rev. Dunamis made mention of the following important points:

Song of Solomon 6:2 (KJV) My beloved is gone down into his garden, to the beds of spices, to feed in the gardens, and to gather lilies.

Beloved is a word that portrays love.

A garden is a place of relaxation; it is a place of beauty.
It is to this garden that the beloved comes down to. So if the person you wish to marry doesn’t have a ‘garden’ don’t marry her/him.

To the married, your responsibility is to keep/tend each other’s garden after marriage.
The first thing you should prioritize in your relationship/marriage is relationship with God.

Your priority shows where your garden is. To some people their priority is clubbing.
The person you are considering to marry, what are his priorities?

When you are dull, wine is not the way out. Joy in the Holy Ghost (getting drunk in the Holy Ghost) is the way to go.

SOS 6:2 mentions three things:

1. The Bed of Spices

The beds of spices talks of the favour of God upon your destiny.

Never get married to someone that is devoid of God’s favour! How do you know a person that is devoid of favour? The Scripture says that good understanding procures favour; therefore a person that has a good knowledge of the Word of God will have favour.

In marriage, what you need for your prayers to be answered is agreement – agreement with your spouse.

God’s plan is not divorce!

Premarital sex confuses the mind, such that you lose sight of the essentials, and therefore end up marrying wrong.

Men are moved by sight, therefore wives make sure you always give your husband a good picture to behold and remember.

You need favour in your life; back-to-back failures can be overwhelming!

There is nothing as beautiful as knowing that your spouse loves you genuinely.

Making peace is better than making points. Learn to apologize and to forgive your spouse easily.

The person you marry will often times determine your priorities.

2. To feed in the garden

Don’t marry a person who doesn’t have appetite. You are what you eat! Don’t marry someone who eats carelessly.

What is the beloved eating?

Jeremiah 15:16 (KJV) Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts.

There is a problem if your spouse or the person you wish to marry is not eating God’s word.

God’s word never fails!

You are literarily what you eat! You cannot do beyond the strength and capacity you have. There are doors you cannot open because you lack the required strength to do so.

Your real strength is dependent on the Word of God in your spirit.

When the guy comes to ask you out, ask him how often he eats!

All of us have the responsibility of finding the Word of God for our lives – Jeremiah 15:16

3. To gather lilies

This talks of responsibilities/work.
