More On Spiritual Submission and Marriage





Re : What Do I Do Concerning These Issues?


Question : I must say that I am richly blessed by your counseling. Sir, concerning whom to submit to as a father, the man who led me to Christ never had an established relationship with me. But there is this preacher whom I know and I've seen myself submitting to him twice in my dream. So what do I do? If he is the one, I would like God to also minister to him concerning me.

Concerning my marriage, there is this young lady I have been dating for 6 years now. Right from that day she told her mother that I was her friend, the mother never liked me, and she vowed that only over her dead body she will allow me to marry her daughter. Man of God that was why I asked what is God saying about my marital life?

Sir what do I do concerning these issues? Thank you for everything. I hope to hear from you again.

Answer : Nice to hear from you again. You cannot expect your spiritual father to establish a relationship with you, instead you should submit to him and create a frienship of gratitude towards him for being a channel of blessing towards your spiritual life. If you say that you have seen a man of God in your dream to whose spiritual authority you have seen yourself submit, you have given your own answer. May be God is telling you to be guided by this man spiritually. The word of God never says to pray for a spiritual authority to understand you so that he might be able to receive you in to his fellowship with an open arms, instead it says,
"5 ...You younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” 6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time." (1 Peter 5:-6). In other words, as you trust God and submit to spiritual authority whom God has appointed to guide you, you are showing to God that you are humble enough to accept His fivefold fingers of God's eldership authority which He has appointed in the Church. Seeing your humility over a period of time, God will give you great spiritual grace and will lift you to great spiritual heights in the coming days. Here you have a quality choice to be a blessing to many, so choose wisely!

Regarding your marriage, you should have waited for God's timing than to have dated this woman for so long. This girl has lied to her mother for so long to continue in this relationship. A lie cannot bring a blessing. This is confirmed when her mother has made a bad vow and have shown her dislike in your pursuit towards her daughter. As a good christian you should understand that God is not the author of confusion and will never lead you in to chaos regarding His will for your life
(1 Cor 14:33). It is better for you to understand that God is saying you to pursue peace in your relationship with all, especially that girl's mother as much as possible (Rom 12:18), and depart this old relationship in peace. Ask God to bring the right girl which He has in His mind for you, then don't date again to know whether that girl will fit for you or not. Instead ask God, pray and wait for the confirmation of peace from Him. If you have peace, wait till your marriage. Then marry the girl and then be in covenantal relationship with her for life. I bet you will live a blessed life because of doing these basics right.

Much Blessings.....

We will focus mainly on apostolic teaching that will edify, equip and empower the saints to reach their full potential in Christ Jesus. Our goal is the edification, evangelism and empowerment of the last day Church that the Lord Jesus Christ is raising up before His triumphant return!
