Scripture:- 2 Corinthians 7
Topic:- Don’t Marry A Man You Can’t Carry The Burden Of His Destiny
Marriage Is Not For Everyone! A lot of ladies don’t know this.
A greater proportion of women wants to marry great men, celebrities, authorities, maybe because of money, but truth is, Can you pay the price in marriage?
I have come to the understanding that so many great people hardly have time for their family, can you cope?
A lot of ladies will love to have been the wife to a great man like Bishop Oyedepo, but do you know he hardly sleeps?
Does he hardly have time for his wife? But there’s an excess of money. What of his attention?
A lot of ladies get to discover that money isn’t everything when it’s already late.
A man who is globally relevant might not give you all the attention you need.
What will keep you in those times is the love and passion you have for his vision and mandate and that brings me to
Marry a man whose vision you can carry.
Getting married to very great people isn’t beans. Ask their wives.
Being a people person isn’t easy.
Many celebrities don’t spend up to three months in a year with their families.
Can you cope with that time because money can’t solve that one?
Will you be able to cope when he’ll have to be away for eight months and as he’s getting back, he has another trip for a year and all that kind of serial engagements?
Even Van Vicker, a Famous actor confessed he barely has up to two months with his wife in a year.
Many girls would wish to have married Van, but how many can understand when he’ll have to stay away for long because of his dreams and purpose?
Personally, I have a mandate to reach out to 2 billion people before I die, to impact and influence a minimum of that amount before I breathe my last breath.
God keeps using people to warn me that I have to be careful when it comes to choosing a life partner.
Because a mistake there will ruin my purpose.
A man might be vision-minded, passionate, ambitious, and rich and handsome and you wish to marry him but the truth is.
You can’t bear the burden of his mandate. You can’t endure it.
Do you know what the wives of Pastors endure?
Do you know what the wives of great Icons endure?
It’s not by fantasizing about love from morning till night.
If you’re thinking of marrying a great man, be ready to pay a great task in marriage.
Myles Monroe when alive got over 800 invitations to speak in a year, How did he cope? How do you think his wife coped?
It was because she was strong enough to bear the burden of her husband’s purpose.
It doesn’t end at marrying a man with a vision.
You must understand that as time goes, that vision will explode and he might not have so much time for you, you need to understand and adjust.
This is also why a lot of celebrities have issues with marriage.
I’m not saying celebrities shouldn’t have time for their family in the name of their vision but believe me no matter how much they spare, it can’t be much like an average man.
Some of them hardly sleep sef!
No matter how great I become, I’ll always have time to be with my wife and family but I doubt it’ll be every now and then.
I wish it would be but with my life’s purpose, it might be tough.
Can you manage a man’s greatness?
Money won’t change anything.
Some ladies think when there’s money, marriage is better. Lol.
Money sure helps but a lot of women that married rich and great men want to divorce because they can’t cope with the burden of their purpose.
Oh Lord God, help me to marry the bone of my bone and the flesh of my flesh, and never to make mistake in marriage, in the name of Jesus Christ.
