QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS 2

Welcome to the second month in 2021. This year may have started out with its challenges but in all, glory be to God Almighty. I want to use this time to encourage as many women that are discouraged by what they may be going through in their marriages through this question and answer.

Question: Mummy, what else can I do? I try to impress and satisfy my husband, yet its complaints every time, every day no matter my sacrifice for him and our children. Our marriage is more than 18 years old. Many times, I feel like committing suicide. To people outside, they believe I am enjoying, but nobody can control or correct him. Is God asleep about my case? I have prayed, yet I have not seen changes.

Answer: Firstly, I thank God for your life because He is working out something for you. You may not be aware but I know this. Please do not relent your prayers. I feel your pain. Sincerely, I know it is not easy loving a man who does not appreciate you or your efforts, as Luke 6:45 tells us that, “out of the abundance of the heart, his mouth speaks”, but God in heaven will surely reward you. It is a matter of time. Your mental health matters. Recently, a woman confided in me that 2 years ago, she had attempted suicide, but her husband did not discuss it with his family due to shame. This is still the same issue she complained about. So, please get it right. Start doing whatever makes you happy. Look for ways to ease off the tension, and surround yourself with people who believe in you and make you happy. If you can afford to go for a spa treatment, do so. Make your hair or get a good haircut. Laugh it off and make sure you restrain yourself from adultery because I have found that most women at this stage are vulnerable to marital infidelity. This is because there is always someone out there who will appreciate you in a much better way and manner than your husband. So, be careful.

You said that you have been praying and have also tried to comply with his excesses yet the situation has remained the same. Luke 1:37 says, “with God nothing shall be impossible.” One day, God will touch his heart but don’t kill yourself or lose your mind before then. Thinking about it, you will know that this is a spiritual matter and it is beyond you. Check his family and yours to know if other wives or members of your families are also facing a similar situation. Whatever you discover will help you to know what to pray about. Also, side chicks and strange women cannot be ruled out. A lot of times, when a man is involved in illicit affairs, he will no more be satisfied with his wife. He will complain about everything including food, but when he is outside, he is willing to spend much more on feeding. However, he is not ready to spend to get good food from his wife. At this point, you need extra grace because it is sickening to find out that your efforts are unappreciated despite the sacrifices.

Do not allow anyone’s behaviour to make you either leave God or His presence. Hold on to Christ, the Author and Finisher of your faith, because very soon, if you do not relent, you will laugh last in Jesus Name. Be encouraged.

To brothers out there who are also reading this article, if your wife is unhappy with you because you have been maltreating her in any manner, it is unfortunate because you are only afflicting yourself. And this can bring about delay or completely hinder your prayers from being answered. God is watching you, and you will receive your reward accordingly. If you appreciate other people and their wives, but not your wife, then you may not know the value of what you have until you lose it. Whatever you do not value cannot be a blessing to you. You only know about today, remember, the same woman whom you tag ‘useless’ today will be the one who will stay with you later in life if there are challenges. Be wise!

For the young adults too, I encourage you to be responsible before getting married. Your responsibilities include paying the bills to maintain the house, engaging with your children among a host of others. Do not fall for the lie that your responsibility is only restricted to paying the house rent and children’s school fees. If you are not ready to do these and others, please stay away from marriage.

LET US PRAY

Acts 12:1-10

I welcome you all to the month of February, the month of double portion of God’s blessings and a month when God will definitely answer your prayers. This month, the Lord will usher you into a new level of Glory, Grace and Abundance. The joy of the Lord will be your portion and it shall be well with you and all yours in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ.

I believe you are aware that this month is going to be wholly given to prayer and fasting, in order words, it is going to be a month of authority and power. The month that you shall decree and declare a thing and it shall come to pass – Job 22:28, “Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.”

You need do a lot of prayer to be victorious this year, may the Lord grant you the Spirit of prayer, and as you lift up your voices in prayer and trust in the Lord the Almighty, God Who hears the voice of Judah will hear your voice and grant your request in Jesus Name.

Prayer ushers in seasons of glory and testimony.

In our Bible passage, we discovered how prayer was made without ceasing by the Church for Apostle Peter and that moved God to release His Angel to deliver and release him from the dungeon. Therefore, as you lift up your voice in prayer this month, you will experience God’s deliverance from every dungeon where the devil has kept you in Jesus Name.

There are three areas of life where your prayer must address this month:

1) The Foundation of your Life: Psalm 11:3, “If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” How far one will go in life is determined by one’s foundation and background. In 1 Chronicles 4:9-10, Jabez discovered his mother conceived him in sorrow and this afflicted his background. So, he prayed, and God heard him and corrected every error in his background. Let your prayer address issues about your background. Foundation is the base on which something stands, depends or rests. You can not recover from the problem whose source you are ignorant of or do not know about. I decree that whatever is in your foundation affecting you or your family negatively will perish today in Jesus Name.

2) Your Current Situation (Psalm 23:1-6): Direct your prayer to any situation in your life that is not of or from God. Try to carry out some self-examination, take a look at your family, career, job, finances and health, any of these that is not giving glory to God must be dealt with by prayer. I pray for you that the Almighty God will manifest Himself in your situation today in Jesus Name.

3) Your Future, that is Your Tomorrow: Isaiah 3:10, “Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.” What will become of you in the future can be determined by today’s prayer. You can arrest every evil in your future today. I join my faith with your faith today and declare that it shall well with your future and your tomorrow shall be alright in Jesus Name.

PRAYERS

1) Thank God and give Him praise for all He has done for you since the beginning of this year. Thank Him for the gift of life, divine provision and protection.

2) Every foundational problem affecting my progress in life be destroyed by fire in Jesus Name.

3) The power of the Most High God that destroyed Goliath, the power that promoted Joseph, change my current situation for better and give me testimony over every unpleasant situation I’m passing through in Jesus Name.

4) Oh Lord, I commit my future into Your unfailing Hands, let it be well with me in Jesus Name.

5) Father I receive double portion of every good thing I desire this month of February in Jesus Name.

Welcome to February

Shalom!
