Continued from yesterday. You can read Part 1 HERE

There are Josephs, Samsons and there are Amnons!

There are women who bring help and there are those who bring hell. There are wives and there are knives!

There are those who delight in your God and those who deride your faith.

There are Deborahs and there are Delilahs! There are Sarahs and there are Jezebels.

I say this with all sense of responsibility and humility, if I had married the wrong person, I will not be in ministry today. I know that because a lot of ministries have become miseries.

A lot of gifts and callings have been silenced and hibernated in the kitchen forever because of the wrong choice!

A lot of glorious callings have been guillotined, hung, and suspended because of the wrong choice.

Now, Pastor what do I look for in a man or a lady?

It is very simple.
Look for a man or woman that is BLESSED!

Don’t look for money or comfort alone, look for the blessing first.

If he or she is not blessed, the money will all disappear. And even if it doesn’t disappear, joy will be far away.

The blessing! That is what to look for.

Look for a man that will not be threatened of you and will bring out the best in you.

Look for a woman that will complement you and not distract you in this journey.

Look for a man who loves God, he will truly love you.

Let’s take a look at just one example.

And Abraham gave ALL that he had unto Isaac. – Genesis 25:5 (KJV)

What is the “All” that Abraham gave to Isaac?

It is called the blessing!

The blessing makes all that a man does to prosper just like a curse can make all that a man does to come to null and void.

But if Abraham gave all to Isaac, what then did he give to all other sons?

But unto the sons of the concubines, which Abraham had, Abraham gave GIFTS and sent them away from Isaac his son, while he yet lived, eastward, unto the east country. – Genesis 25:6 (KJV)

He gave all other sons all kinds of gifts which in today’s world would include cars, houses, lands, and so on.

But to Isaac, he gave ALL, and ALL is the Blessing!

Look for a blessed man, not a man who has a car but is not blessed.

The blessed man will eventually get all the cars and houses and the jets!

To be continued tomorrow…

I will not miss it in marriage

Oh Lord, lead me to that person you have designed for me

And Abraham gave ALL that he had unto Isaac. – Genesis 25:5 (KJV)
