It has become a norm in the Christian community today for singles to seek their Pastor’s guidance before choosing their partners. There is no offence in seeking spiritual guidance when it comes to choosing the person you want to spend the rest of your life however, if care is not taken going this route only may lead to disaster in the future. Read the message below from highly respected man of God, Pastor E.A Adeboye.
Pastor Adeboye’s Message To Singles On Marriage
Those of you who go to your Pastor to pray for you and tell you who to marry, if care is not taken, you will become a victim of lies. You are simply lazy. No pastor or prophet should tell you who to marry. They are to pray along with you, counsel and guide you using the Word of God. If you fail to pay the price to hear from God on that matter, you may be deceived. God can use your pastor or a genuine prophet of God to confirm what He had already told you. Many homes have been established on falsehood and that is why things are falling apart and the center can no longer hold. Some pastors are seriously into match-making. They have taken over from the Holy Spirit. Match-making remains God’s prerogative and He has not delegated it to any pastor. And in case you don’t know, God removed his hand from matchmaking after Adam told him “It was the woman you gave to me that gave me of the fruit and I did eat”.
