God the Present Help in your Relationship and Marriage

God’s word is powerful enough to be trusted. The word from His mouth will never go back to Him void but will accomplish what it says it would.

If you are a child of God, take refuge in His word and promises.

Whatever the issue or challenge is with your relationship trust God. He is the very present help in times of trouble. You will testify to His faithfulness. ( So far as the perfect will of God is known)

Maybe you are having issues with parental consent. Maybe it is the finances for the wedding that is the issue. Maybe it’s a misunderstanding that has been lingering for long. Maybe it’s peer pressure or listening to the wrong advice. 

I want to encourage you this morning. Take hold of God’s word. 

If you can have it in the word, you can have it in your world. 

That marriage will not end in separation or divorce. The dry bones of that marriage will rise again. Finances will flow again. You will enjoy marital bliss once again. Or if you do not know what it is to enjoy bliss, God’s word will manufacture it.

Isaiah 41:18 GNT 
I will make rivers flow among barren hills and springs of water run in the valleys. I will turn the desert into pools of water and the dry land into flowing springs.  

God’s word promises restoration.  God promises to make rivers flow among barren hills. He will turn the desert into pools of water and dry lands flowing springs.

What a wonderful promise to hold on to.

Whatever looks like dryness in your relationship and marriage, in your finances, or business, God promises to turn it around. 

The issues you face in your relationship and marriage are not meant to break you. They are there to make you stronger.

Jesus told Peter, when thou art converted strengthen your brothers.

Whatever you are dealing with right now is only for an appointed time.  Its season will soon come to pass. Then you will be furnished to strengthen your brethren.

Fight the good fight of faith. After it all, we are still standing.

God’s word is a sure foundation to stand upon.

Don’t give up, believe His word and it will happen for you in your relationship and marriage.

God bless you

March Into His Presence!

March Into His Presence!

Reading Time: 2 minutes

March Into His Presence! Welcome to March! March has always been a special month for us. The month of March was when our ministry was inaugurated. I was still single at the time. 12th March 1998 to be precise, the same day Archbishop Benson Idahosa went home. 

The month of March was when my fiancee, then, said yes!  One of our sons was born on the 1st of March as well. 

God has given us a word for this month. Let’s take a look. 

Psa 95:2 (MSG) Let’s MARCH into his presence singing praises, lifting the rafters with our hymns!

It’s time to March into God’s presence this month! The attitude with which to do that is specifically indicated; We are to do that singing and lifting rafters with our hymns!

What are those issues that have been sources of concern to you? Are there bills you need to pay? Are there debts you need to clear? Are there enormous dreams that seem unrealizable?

Well, I have news for you! March into His presence! Discard complaints and murmuring, rather lift your voice in singing and worship unto the name of the Lord!

The next verse is powerful.

Psa 95:3 (MSG) And why? Because GOD is the best, High King over all the gods.

Why should you Sing? Why should you rejoice in the midst of contradictions and seemingly unanswered prayers?

The answer is right there. God is the best! 

Not just that, He is king over all other gods! 

No other gods or person should scare you. God is King over them. 

He is the best father you can ever have.

This month, you will sing! This month you will rejoice! Something beautiful will surely happen in your life this month in Jesus’ name! 

Make that decision. March into His presence. Practice His presence this month and you will see God doing the best for you!

Good morning!

Taking Care Of Your Lover/Spouse

Taking Care Of Your Lover/Spouse

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Taking Care Of Your Lover/Spouse
Okay, so you are in love. Butterflies are flying in the tummy, your heartbeat accelerates, and there are twinkling little stars on your face. How do you take care of each other? Or you are married, somehow the butterflies have decided to rest, the heartbeat is stable and the stars have hibernated. How do you take care of each other or probably rekindle this love?

Here are some ideas for singles and married couples.

1. Communication
Stay in touch. Words are powerful; use them to your advantage. As singles, don’t let your courtship season be a memory of fights, quarrels, and arguments. Be mature with each other. Avoid being incommunicado.

Make it a rule; we must keep talking. That can also be a powerful principle to live by as a married couple. The devil feasts on silence; assumptions will persist and complicate the issue because assumptions are the lowest form of knowledge.

What is a man looking for? Respect!
What is a lady looking for? Love!
If you learn to communicate this, there will be less tension!

Singles should however note that it is wrong to say you are showing respect while you are disobeying God’s injunctions! More aptly put, you are not showing respect to your fiance by cooperating with him when he asks for pre-marital sex.

2. Spirituals
Oh, pastor, what has this got to do with being romantic? It’s got a lot to do! Somebody said, to be romantic, read the book of Romans! Your spiritual life as single or married can determine the success of your relationship or marriage. There are two elements to your spiritual life: reading God’s word (which also includes study and meditation) and praying to God. If you can make this regular and consistent, some order will enter your relationship/marriage.

Why Are Things Not Working?

Why Are Things Not Working?

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Why Are Things Not Working?

We have probably all been there. You have tried all you know and yet nothing seems to be working.

You have prayed, fasted, and even sowed seeds, and yet, the heaven seems closed. 

God seems silent to all your inquiries and you are not getting anything. Your prayers seem to be bouncing off the ceiling. 

What could be happening?

Well, a lot of things can be happening why this is so, but this morning, I want to point to singles and couples alike why this could happen.

Let’s take our text below:

Rom 4:21 (KJV)  And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.

The text used “fully” persuaded. That means persuasion can be measured. You can be half persuaded or a quarter persuaded! But the text says he was FULLY persuaded.

Are you fully persuaded concerning what you trust God for or ask Him to do?

Why must you be fully persuaded? 

The answer is in below text:

Jas 1:6-8 (KJV)  But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.  [7]  For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.  [8]  A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

A person who is DOUBTING is like a wave. Verse 7 says that man will not receive anything from God.

Every time things seem not to be working, check your heart if there are doubts concerning God’s promises to you or concerning His instructions. 

As you learn to be fully persuaded, you get more results in your walk with God either as a single or couple. 

I pray for you this week, God will reach out to you and send you help in every area you need Him in Jesus’ name!

Changing Gears From Leaving To Cleaving

Changing Gears From Leaving To Cleaving

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Changing Gears From Leaving To Cleaving

Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. (Genesis 2:24 KJV)

Here, we see God giving an instruction once marriage is in view. There must be “leaving” and a “cleaving” before any marriage can be successful.

A lot of people leave without cleaving. It won’t work. A lot more try to cleave without leaving. It won’t work either.

It has to be a “leaving” and a “cleaving.”

The word “leaving” is very interesting. There are two particular words or meanings I am interested in. They are the words ‘relinquish” and “commit self”

Pastor, you mean I must relinquish relationship with my parents? It doesn’t mean you disconnect from them or cut off from them, it only talks about where your focus should now be as a married person. After God, the next most important person in your life is your spouse. It doesn’t mean you should not take care of your parents any longer, it just means there should be more emphasis on your spouse.

And then the word “commitment!” Leaving to cleave involves commitment! A person that goes into a relationship or marriage without the willingness to commit to the relationship is just playing around. You need to pray as a single that your path will not cross with such people because they would waste your time, energy and resources. Yorubas call such people “alawin”

It is not God’s concept to have several people on your list that you are dating at a time. If God wanted some form of double dating or polygamy, He would have created Eve, Eva and Evelyn for Adam. Remember Adam still had ribs remaining!

But God created only one person upon whom Adam should focus on. And that is the biblical standard! In that one person is packaged everything you need to be complete. Couples who constantly fight and quarrel are missing out a lot because they are never complete that way. Their agreement would be broken and prayer would be hindered.

To be continued.
