Ministry and Marriage, The Two Destiny Builders






Prophetic Counseling Regarding Ministry and Marriage



Question : Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. I am Gideon Thomas from Nigeria. Sir I want to know the type of ministry God has called me into and whom to submit to as my spiritual father in the Lord. Secondly, regarding my marital life, what is God saying about it. Thank you sir. I look forward to hearing from you.

Answer : Greetings to you in Jesus name!

Here is what Scripture says,
"10 As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. 11 If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen." (1 Peter 4:10-11). In other words, all believers are gifted by God in some area of ministering supernaturally to all the saints and others. So if you are able to preach, preach and bless others around you, believing that God is speaking through you. If you have the resources to help others, do it gladly as though the Lord Himself is giving through you.

To know the type of ministry God has called you to do, first try to do what you are able to do within the Church setting and also outside towards the people whom God has placed around you.

When you feel the grace of God manifesting through you, you will feel joyful to do the work of God and also will be able to say at the end of the day that God has done it through me
(1 Cor 15:10). Spiritual fathers are those who have guided you in to the Lord and who are willing to pray for you and help you grow in the Lord (Gal 4:19). Pray, if you have not got one and the Lord will bring you in to contact with the right person. Once God gives you, submit to the spiritual father's or elders whose faith follow them, willingly as to the Lord so that they might watch out for your souls with joy and not with grief that will take you out of being a recipient of the blessing of God that was ordained to come and reach you through them (1 Peter 5:5; Heb 13:7, 17).

Remember, there can be ten thousand guardians or pastoral elders who can guide you, but only one person can be a spiritual father who have shared the gospel with you to make you become born again in your spirit
(1 Cor 4:15). So, you will only know who your spiritual father is, but if you do not know, just pray that God will really give you a guardian with a father's heart towards you.

Regarding your married life, if you are not yet married, God says that it is better to get married than to burn with lust
(1 Cor 7:7). Because of sexual immorality that Satan instigates through the worldly mediums and continiously works against the soul life of all believers to destroy it (John 10:10; 1 Peter 2:11), God has clearly revealed that it is good that each man have his own wife and vice-versa for women (1 Cor 7:2). If you are seeking for a bride, it is good to pray to God and expect God to direct you to the right person or bring the right person to you (Prov 19:14). God may use Eliezers as a go between you and the bride's family, and He will guide and supernaturally lead the Eliezers through angelic intervention to find and connect the right person which God has chosen in His mind for you (Gen 24:1-16; 15:2). Be open to Eliezers and also ask God for confirmation regarding the person who is set before you through these supernatural connections. If God gives you peace that passes all understanding within your inner spirit-man, even though you are still confused in your logical mind regarding what decision to take, trust God's sovereign rule over your life and go ahead in marrying the girl which God has brought to you to be your life partner (Php 4:6-7; Psa 32:8).

When you wait for God in faith, and finally find the exact person God has planned for you before the foundation of the world
(Eph 1:4), you will receive a favor of great blessing and will come to realize that you have found a good thing in your life that you did not have before (Prov 18:22). A very perfect excellent match no one can find for you except the Lord who knows where your rib have got hidden when He operated and took the rib of our first father Adam and fit it in rib of our first mother Eve in the garden of Eden (Prov 31:10). Ever since God has been in the business of matching the right rib and bringing people together in a holy covenantal matrimony for life. Remember, our Lord who first brought Eve to Adam, is again able to bring you the bride which He has in His mind for you (Gen 2:22; Eph 3:20-21).

The Lord has clearly expressed in the basic good level of the will of God to marry only a believer
(Rom 12:2; 2 Cor 6:14). If even a believer wants to remarry after the death of their spouse, they are instructed to marry only within the community of believers (1 Cor 7:39). The higher you go to find your bride in the acceptable and perfect will of God, it is up to your faith level.

If you are married, praise the Lord! God will bless your family as you love your wife as Christ loves the Church unconditionally and as your wife submits to you as the Church submits unconditionally to Christ
(Eph 5:22-25). Remember, if truly "CHRIST is the HEAD of your household, THE UNSEEN HOST at every meal, THE SILENT LISTENER to every conversation", you will experience a blessed heaven on earth through your family life.

Much Blessings....
