The most shocking reply to a proposal

  • This morning, I am going to give you eight reasons why you should stop worrying as singles or married, but first the story!
    It was a perfect evening for a perfect love story that is about to begin. Brother Zerubbabel has chosen this perfect moment to propose to Sister Sube.

    The weather seems to be in cooperation to what is about to take place. The evening sun, perfectly set in the background of a bluish, reddish sky, seems to have been put in place by a divine decorator.

    As they walked down the busy road, Sister Sube knew what was coming. Ladies are always intuitive. She knew something was about to happen.

    She had waited for so long. At thirty-nine, she had waited for the man to show up and finally, it looks like that man is here by her side. She prayed silently that her hunch was right and the guy will propose.

    Bro. Zeru’s heart palpitated in an orchestrated and increasing pace, butterflies flew endlessly in his tummy, his body temperature increased, and he prayed silently that all will go well.

    Sister Sube wondered what he wanted to buy down the road. He had asked her to walk down the road with him so that he could buy something.

    Without warning, Bro. Zeru went on his knees, with a smile, and said,

    “I just saw what I want to buy.”

    Slowly, romantically, he brought out a ring and proposed.
    “Will you marry me?

    Sister Sube closed her eyes for a moment  and then without warning, landed a deafening slap on the poor brother’s face!

    People turned around and wondered what was going on. Brother Zeru's smile dissolved into a shocked countenance. “God, but you told me she is the one?” He thought.

    Before he could say KHC, another slap landed on the other side of his cheek. This time he wanted to get up from his knees, but Sister Sube held him down with one hand.

    Sister Sube began.
    “Where have you been all this while? For all the endless vigils I had praying for a husband, for all the times I fasted, including dry fasts, for all the endless nights of hugging my pillow and wetting it with my tears, for all the nights of desperation and depression wondering why God abandoned me, for all the times I thought I would never marry again because something was wrong me, for all the times I nearly ended with an unbeliever out of desperation, for all the times I  thought I was not beautiful and something was wrong with me, for all the times I thought there was a generational curse and a warped lineage, take one more," and with that, she gave him one last deafening slap!

    Then she smiled. “My answer is Yes, I will marry you!”

    By this time, Bro. Zeru didn't know what to make of it, whether to cry or laugh.

    Sister Sube pulled him up and gave him a hug. “But where have you been dear, is it that you didn't hear God well, or God was not speaking? I love you too and I will marry you!”

    That story is humorous, but it also illustrates what waiting singles go through in their bid to get married.

    But I want to tell you something this morning: Stop worrying!

    Actually, when you worry, you are out of faith! That is why Jesus said

    "Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don't worry about missing out. You'll find all your everyday human concerns will be met. "Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don't get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes."  (Mat 6:33-34, MSG)

    Here are a few reasons why you should stop worrying as singles
    1. Your spouse is alive, breathing, probably praying to meet you as well. It is not as if he or she is just about to be born. Rest in God’s arms, that He will cause your paths to cross.

    2. Your marriage is in the future, but it is in God’s past. In God, it already happened. It is a live match for you, but for God, it is a replay! It has happened. Have faith for its manifestation and stop worrying.

    3. Worry adds nothing to you except anxiety, depression and doubt in God’s promises. So don’t weary yourself unnecessary.

    4. No matter now many weddings take place daily, nobody can marry your spouse! That is the reality! So, relax in God’s promise. It will happen!

    5. In God, your wedding is never late, it actually becomes the latest in town. When you are in God’s season and timing, you are never late because God has a purpose for everything.

    6. The Lord is your shepherd. He will not lead you wrong. A sheep never worries. Not once! He only follows!

    7. God will not bring you to the place of birth and not cause to bring forth. The same way, God will not bring you to the place of marriage and not cause a spouse to show up! Believe that!

    8. God is more concerned than you are concerned. It just your ability to key into that faith and judge God faithful over your marital life.

    The same goes for those who are already married.

    Whatever you are trusting God for, business breakthrough, fruit of the womb, and more, they are in God’s past. They are already done!

    I want you to stop worrying and step into faith. Faith is a realm of possibilities. Great things happen there! Trust God for the best.

    He has not left you nor abandoned you. The devil wants you to believe that, but the devil is always a liar.

    God has you in mind. He has it all planned out!
    Let me conclude with this scripture:
    "I know what I'm doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for."  (Jer 29:11, MSG)

    God knows what He is doing. Man may be confused, but believe me, God is not confused about your life. God knows what He is doing! He has it all planned out!
    Rest in that. No more worries! Rest in His plan. Something great is working out for you. Believe it and you will see its manifestation! It is well with you!

    I see God bringing you into the reality of His plans for you. I see God bringing speed into your life. I see a new day for you! Believe it and you will see the hand of the Lord!

    I will no longer worry. I will rest in God.

    Pray that God will give you His peace that transcends all understandings

    "For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome."  (Jer 29:11, AMP)
