How I Met My Husband

Friday 27th November 2020 Devotion
Scripture:- Proverbs 31:10-31
Topic:- How
I Met My Husband
Text:- Proverbs 31:30


When I first met my husband, I was a chorister.
I was very inexperienced and all I knew was to serve my God. I was brought up that way.
He was then a Music director who came to our Church to improve the performance of the Choir. We used to call him brother Daniel.
There was really nothing on my mind than we had a nice brother who was coming to teach us in the Choir.
He was down to earth and straightforward. Anytime he came we enjoyed his teaching. We always wanted him around because we learned a lot from him; more than the songs he taught us.
That day, he called me and we were in a small room where we normally had our fellowship. He used to do his counseling there too.
I was thinking within me when I heard he wanted to see me and I wondered oh my God, have I done anything wrong? What has the man of God got to say to me today?
I was on dry fasting as well trying to see a man of God. In preparation for that visit, I was praying and wondered oh God, what is this meeting all about?
Just as he writes his books, he’s a man of not too many words but action, backed up by the power of God.
I’m not praising anyone, but I’m saying the truth from the bottom of my heart.
That day, he talked to me and he said, “God is laying it in my heart that you are my wife. Simple”.
It was like I was in another planet trying to come back. Before I said anything, he just said to me, “you have enough time, you go and pray.”
When he visited, it was like an inquiry about what went on after the appointment. The result of my prayer and things like that.
When I got to Ife, it was like God prepared that place for me to have a personal encounter on the issue.
To me, it was a matter of life and death, because of our Christian background.
We prayed over everything, committed everything into Gods hands. We didn’t do anything without hearing from God.
For the first time in my life, we did marathon fasting. I fasted for 3 days just to ensure that I was getting it right. Just to get a yes or no.
While I was praying, I had the idea of having a very pleasant marriage and a man I can call my brother, my friend. True love comes from the heart.
I prayed to the Lord that I didn’t want deceit, I didn’t want to make a mistake. I wanted a happy marriage and God confirmed his word. God confirmed it by showing a revelation to me.
As an Artist, I was able to do a sketch for my own future reference.
God showed him to me. I was actually presented to him. That was when I knew God had a hand in it. I was not really matured enough to say I heard God’s voice.
God gave me that revelation and gave me witnesses as well to back it up. I prayed to God and I was happy. I had peace within me and I could see the future becoming bright.
I was confident that I was doing the right thing. I told him what the result of my prayers was and he asked when was my next birthday. I told him and he said to me, you share the same birthday with me.
The relationship was not based on maybe because we shared the same birthday. We actually knew about that at that point in time. It made the relationship even more special to me and from there we started.
We attended prayer meetings together. At first, we were meeting on Tuesdays.
Then he gave me topics to talk about. He was a very good moderator, and he gave me just10 minutes to speak on a particular topic.
We discussed and we prayed together. We enjoyed every bit of our courtship.
We did not indulge in per-marital sex. The courtship lasted about a year and a few months. Like I told you, before I got born again in 1974 the Lord had been helping me. I never got into trouble like other people did.
So, the question of temptation did not come in a way that most people talk about temptation now.
When we meet, we are meeting on purpose to study the word, discuss and go.

Prayer Point:- Oh Lord God, help me to live purposeful henceforth, in the name of Jesus.

Happy Weekend!

ALTAR CALL

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
