How To Protect Yourself From Heartaches –Part 3

Reading Time: 2 minutes


Continued from yesterday

5. Is It The Right Time?

Am I rushing? Am I too young? Did we have sufficient friendship and courtship? Do I really know him or her since I can only love the person I know?

6. Is The Feeling Mutual?

Am I forcing myself on him or her? Does he or she reciprocates the love or treats me anyhow?

7. Is God Involved?

Do I have peace with this relationship? What are my Pastors saying? What about my parents? What about my siblings? Do I have peace?

Am I sure this is of God? Am I sure I am not on my own? Do I have God’s support and favour?

Ask yourself these questions and make sure you find answers to all of them and you would have succeeded in doing yourself a lot of good. You would have contributed to your happiness and taken charge of the future.

Don’t allow pressures brought about by delays or friends to make you decide and cling to what will obviously not work out.

There is no need to rush into a marriage because you are desperate only to get there and suffer silently because you never knew who you were dealing with.

Once you know a relationship is not of God or it is defective, don’t hesitate to end it all in order to do it right. A broken heart is still much better than a broken life!

Go back to God if you know your relationship with Him is not too good again because that is the foundation of getting blessed by Him!

It is well with you in Jesus name!

I possess wisdom, wisdom directs my actions. I am not blindly in love that I do not apply wisdom. I am patient to find out what I need to find out before saying ‘I do’.

Lord, help me to do my part and follow your leading in my decisions, especially in the area of my relationship. I receive fresh wisdom from you to direct my path in Jesus name.

Ask (questions), and the answer shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. –Matthew 7:7

Take a pen and paper and write down all the questions you are going to ask the person you intend to marry, whether he/she is already around or not. Be prepared, so you are not so much in love that all sense of reasoning is gone.

Ezekiel 48

My Children Are Preserved

My Children Are Preserved

Reading Time: < 1 minute

My children are preserved. God is in the business of preserving and protecting. Part of His promise to us is to be with us in trouble.

More specifically, he wants to preserve us, especially our children, from the snares of death.

One way children can make this happen is by fearing the Lord.

The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, that one may turn away from the snares of death.

Proverbs 14:27 ESV

Like we read in the scripture above, the fear of the Lord is paramount to our daily living.

When you have the fear of God, you will turn away from the snare of death.

That is, when you put the fear of God in your heart by studying and meditating on God’s word and obeying all instructions, you will be lead by God and preserved from any form of snare.

Children, decide to do it God’s way.
Follow God, follow the bible and watch how God will stand up for you.

Lord, preserve my children in Jesus name. Amen

Action point:
Read, meditate, and study the word.

My children are preserved from any form of snare.

Dear Pastor, Does This Man Really Love Me?

Dear Pastor, Does This Man Really Love Me?

Reading Time: 3 minutes

What are the tell-tale signs?

1. He will truly support your dreams and vision.
Not a few women have had their dreams and vision suffocated and swallowed up because of unnecessary intimidation.

A man that truly loves you will truly support your dreams, vision and aspirations knowing fully well that you are one. What is the point of a lady serving God with so much zest and energy on her youthful and campus days and after marriage only to be permanently domiciled to kitchen and baby nursing affairs only? Yes, I know you have to take care of your family and you should but that doesn’t mean you should come to a place where you are not even lifting a finger in your local assembly. I also know that this situation could arise as a result of your own inability to properly transition from a single lady to a married woman and might not have anything to do with your husband.

If you find yourself in this situation, what to do is not go and put up a fight with your husband, but to lovingly discuss with him how you can strike a balance and be useful to God, even as a wife and a mother. I know there are also situations where you might have to blend with your husband, so I am not saying here that you should have a completely independent spirit wherein rather than be a helper to your husband, you eventually become a distraction.

2. He will truly be a lover boy to you only
A godly man that truly loves you will be a great lover of you only. He is not going back and forth and getting involved with other ladies. He is focused on you. Being godly does not mean being unromantic.

A godly man that truly loves you does not come around to tell you that he has so many girlfriends but you are his first choice, as if he is filling a university admission form. He will not play games with you. He will not toy with your emotions and he will not manipulate you with logic. He knows how to take care of you and how to bring out the best in you. Ladies, do not stay with a man who sleeps around and even tells you to your face, that he would stop after marriage. Don’t subject yourself to that kind of affliction, even if he gives you a million bucks every month! You are not for sale!

In marriage, he will focus on you and will not be distracted. His love for you will keep him zipped up even in the face of pressure.

3. He will truly protect you.
A man is supposed to be a protector of the lady. In courtship, he doesn’t want you to compromise your virtue, nay, he wants you to please God, so he is willing to wait. In marriage, his love for you will be evident in how he provides, pampers you, and prays for you. He wants the best for you. When there are issues, he tries to treat you gently, because he knows you are his wife.

To be continued

I will not fall in love with the wrong person.

Pray that God leads you to your rightful partner

Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily.

Ask questions about your relationship and take decisions.

How To Overcome Hurt in Marriage

How To Overcome Hurt in Marriage

Reading Time: 3 minutes

I have often heard that those we love hurt us deeper than anyone else. Especially our spouse. I had felt it can’t be that bad.

This world is full of hurtful people. I think the hurt is deeper when in marriage you hurt yourselves and keep on hunting yourselves unless you made up your mind not to hurt.

Hurt is a decision. It is not based on your feeling. You have to make a conscious effort and decision against hurt.
Some people have been hurt most years of their life.

That is what the devil wants. He is busy having a nice time stealing joy, peace, life, compassion, unity and love from families.

The point is, people, your spouse, and those you hold dear to you will not stop hurting you but you have to make up your mind you won’t allow the hurt get at you.

Hurtful words spoken are like the cutting of the sword especially if your spouse is a choleric.
You cannot prevent people from misunderstanding you, people judging you falsely, lying about you etc.

There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health.
Proverbs 12:18 KJV

From this scripture, you can pray for your spouse or of its a God ordained relationship or a relationship you can’t avoid. Pray that their tongues become the tongue of the wise that brings healing.

Hurt is like drinking poison and hoping your neighbour dies.
That’s not going to happen. Hurts make you bitter. You can be bitter all your life if care is not taken. You will just see that 60 years of your life is gone without achieving much because of hurt and bitterness.

Let receive Grace from the Lord. Jesus was hated, misunderstood, lied against, misjudged, criticised, yet none of this affected him.

He choose to be immune against hurt. He kept His vision before His eyes. He choose between being powerful or being pitiful. He couldn’t possibly have died for humanity if He hated humanity. If he didn’t forgive on time, He couldn’t go to the cross.

Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
Luke 10:19 KJV

Jesus knew we will be faced with hurt and made provision for it. We have to walk in our authority over hurts.

No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord , and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord .
Isaiah 54:17 KJV

You have to take charge of your emotions. Not even your feelings should be strong enough to stop you from fulfilling your purpose. You are only answerable to one. The one who died on the cross for you. When you face to face before Him on the judgement day, you will have no excuse to offer. Jesus passed through the same and was victorious. He overcame and gave you the victory.
He gave the blood of Jesus, the Word, the shield of faith, communion etc.

You have to take the shield of faith which is the Word of God. Anytime words are spoken to you that are hurtful, lies, etc remind yourself and confession out loud and use it against the wile of the enemy.

Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
Ephesians 6:16 KJV

Remember protect yourself against hurt and every negative emotions.

Protect yourself Gods way. There are negative ways of dealing with hurts. I will talk about that later.

May God grant you more understanding.
