After salvation, the most important choice you will need to make is who to marry. It’s so important that if you miss it, you will suffer for long, and if you get it right you will enjoy forever. A bad marriage will affect every area of your life. This subject is so important; so many married people are hoping to be single again, as to make the right choice. If you are single please don’t just be in a hurry to get married, you have the best opportunity to prepare for it.
For two people to come together to live in peace and harmony, they must agree spiritually, mentally and physically. Just like an elephant cannot marry an ant so also a believer cannot marry an unbeliever. If an elephant marries an ant how would they live? If a goat marries a fish where would they meet? You must look for a Godly man/woman to marry. The devil’s primary target is the family. He knows that everyone belongs to a family and if he can make two wrong people meet then he has succeeded affecting the community and nation negatively.
Please, Ignore your age and pressure for a moment, the pressure in a wrong marriage is far worse. God has somebody for you but you must set your priorities right. What do you need in a woman/man? Marriage is not about what you want; it is about who you need that will make you better. It is about destiny. That is why you must know your purpose before you get married. Genesis 2:18 says You must pray before you choose. God know the best person for you, it is only wise to seek His will. It is very easy to know God’s will when sex is not involved
I decree, your marriage will be honorable in the name of Jesus Christ
