Does God Tell Us Who to Marry?

Inline image
Many people have been decieved into terrible marriages or prevented from marrying a good spouse in the name of "My Pastor said" or "GOD said".

I believe there is so much hypocrisy surrounding this matter. Lets face it..how come people don't seek GOD's face or ask a pastor for confirmation if the prospective spouse is an extreme opposite of what they desire..?

How many educated ladies will bother to ask GOD or pastor to confirm if a known armed robber is the one should such woos for marriage?
How many Guys will go to GOD to confirm for them if a popular LovePeddler is the one? But often times we tend to fool ourselves going to a pastor or going to bother GOD to tell us if a seemingly desirous prospective partner comes our way and i tend to wonder.

In the entire scriptures, there were only two instances where GOD expressly gave a clear direction concerning choosing a spouse and in those two instances, it was a very difficult choice and that was when God commanded the prophet Hosea, "Go, take to yourself a wife of whoredom and have children of whoredom.Hosea 1:2. And the second instance was when GOD sked Joseph to marry Mary who was already pregnant.

GOD respects our freedom of choice and for the Christians, we are encouraged to be yoked with fellow Believers and as far as GOD is concerned, A man has the sole responsibility to find a wife and once he finds one and marries her, he obtains favour from GOD. Proverbs 18:22.

The summary of this piece is that we should stop deceiving ourselves by saying 'Prophet said, My pastor said, Alfa said...' because in the real sense, it is our mind telling us what we want to hear. You can rely on your intuition or peculiar signs that gives you confirmation but we should stop hiding behind those words 'GOD SAID'

As a man,it is your paramount duty to search so pray to GOD for guidance and as a lady, pray to GOD that the type of man you desire finds you.

Just as we can see from the scriptures,if GOD ever tells you to marry a certain person then it is most certain that the choice of spouse will be very difficult for you to accept and this is the way you will know that indeed, it is GOD's choice for you

I hope this makes sense.

‘I FOUND OUT I WAS THE SIDECHICK ON CHRISTMAS DAY’ – TV PERSONALITY, LAYOLE OYATOGUN RECOUNTS HER SAD 2017 EXPERIENCES

‘I FOUND OUT I WAS THE SIDECHICK ON CHRISTMAS DAY’ – TV PERSONALITY, LAYOLE OYATOGUN RECOUNTS HER SAD 2017 EXPERIENCES

From losing her mom, to discovering she was the sidechick in her relationship, she wrote;
“Welcome 2018! For a while I’ve been waiting for you, waiting to turn this chapter, waiting for this chance to begin anew! pray tell me, will you be good to me? PLEASE WILL YOU?
Year 2017 was a nasty era, I remember in January of that year I made the proverbial proclamation..”this year is my year”, I disown it now, too many trials on top tribulation. In October i lost my dearest mum, my one true rock!
On Christmas day i found out I was the side chick! I couldn’t get in because my boyfriend had another girl in his house, the list goes on. I have closed the chapter called 2017 in my life, I won’t curse it, won’t nurse it, even rehearse it in the least bit, But surely, however slowly, i will disperse it so God can reverse it.
Don’t get me wrong, still I’m grateful for a lot! life, health and a whole lot more cos just like gold, i went through the fire but came back super lit! I give God all the glory.
2018!!! I have found strength within.. So lets take it from here, let’s take this amazing journey together. With God & guts, UNSTOPPABLE is the word.
Happy New Year People!”
Obaseki Meets Workers, Gives 72 Hours To Treat Files

Obaseki Meets Workers, Gives 72 Hours To Treat Files


The Edo State governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, met with the Head of Service, Permanent Secretaries and other state civil servants on salary grade level 15 to 17 with a pledge to boost capacity development and provide health insurance for workers in the state. Addressing the civil servants at Government House in Benin City, Obaseki said the aim of the meeting was to share thoughts towards ensuring a more efficient and result oriented state Civil Service in pursuing the objectives of 2018 budget, which he has assented to. He said he spends 48 hours responding to memos and mandated senior officials to respond to all memo within 72 hours. “I have a dashboard tracker to monitor the response time. Government will issue queries to those who flout this rule, and other areas where officers are found wanting,” he stressed. “The era of automatic promotion is gone as people must earn their promotion. Promotion will not be delayed. But assessment will be done on time as delay in promoting workers will not be tolerated,” he added. On ways to ease the workload on civil servants, the governor promised to recruit more workers, provide facilities and logistics and procure additional 1,000 computers to augment the 1,000 bought last year. Stressing that his administration will not negotiate the health of the people of the state, he said the Edo State Health Insurance Scheme will be made compulsory for all in the state, especially the civil servants, to enable them access quality good healthcare. The governor emphasised that with the nation’s economic challenges, there was need to avoid the luxury of the past in the running of government affairs and to embrace efficiency by deploying Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in the state civil service. “We will emphasise training and re-training for our civil servants, we need to create an environment where we will enjoy coming to work,” he said. The governor also assured that the civil servants will participate in the housing project to be embarked on by the state government this year. Obaseki said the state is working to entrench a system that works for the people, adding “Given the situation we have found ourselves, we have no choice than to change the way we do things. The people of the state expect so much from us because of the level of political awareness and we are prepared to deliver on our promises”. The governor led the workers to inspect an ICT training centre located inside Government House with which the state government intends to train civil servants, in partnership with the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR). Earlier, Head of Service, Mrs Gladys Idahor expressed appreciation to the governor for his commitment to capacity building for civil servants in the state. Idahor assured the governor of commensurate support and loyalty of the workforce in the state, adding, “This year, we will be more committed and dedicated on our part as civil servants to ensure effective service delivery.”
