The day of the proposal
I was on my way to a program organized for Ladies this faithful day, and as usual, I was talking to God as I made my way to the venue of the program.
I spoke to God and He responded and I was just having a good time communing with Him. Something I learnt is that I can commune with God outside of my prayer room(time). That it’s not only when I’m praying (in my prayer room) or meditating that I can commune with Him.
The guest minister at the event is a great woman of God who later became my mentor and boss. I can’t remember specifically what she talked about that day, but I know it was in line with loving God and fulfilling His purpose. I left the program strengthened, energized and ready to fulfill God’s purpose for my life. Little did I know of how my life was going to change with the proposal.
How God told me about the proposal
After the program, I was to meet with Femi at a designated place. Femi, my new friend. We had been friends for a couple of months. He is very brilliant, intelligent, cool, respectful (he will never force his opinions on you. He believes that you have a right to your opinion and he respects your opinion) and playful guy. I liked all these about him.
The only issue I had with him was his fashion sense. So, I was on my way to meet with him when God asked me this question: “Do you know what Femi wants to discuss with you? I answered “No”. And God said “He intends to ask you to be his fiancé, he intends for you both to get married when the time comes. You should give him a YES”.
I was shocked at what God said and here is my response “Lord, I don’t want a relationship with any guy now. I am enjoying my relationship with you, I don’t want anything or anyone to tamper with my relationship with you. Yes, I know I will get married someday but not now. I don’t want a relationship with a guy now”.
I met with Femi, and he said everything God told me he was going to say. He wanted me to be his fiancé, he intends for us to get married and all. After the “PROPOSAL”, I told him I would pray about it and get back to him.
My struggle with the proposal
There was nothing to pray about because I knew the answer to the proposal already, I was just been stubborn. My school mother and I talked about Femi’s proposal. She counseled me and prayed with me.
Thank God she was there at that junction of my life where I had to make a very important decision. As children of God, God will not leave us without help in life. There are some prayers we pray to God and He answers by placing people, relationships in our lives. We must be able to recognize these relationships.
So, Femi and I started out. At the early days of the relationship, I didn’t feel that butterfly in my tummy, tickling me, saying “oh that’s my fiancé” kind of feeling. I was just there. I tried all I could to push him away, to make him change his mind about me and all, It did not work. He loved me despite the fact that I was acting unlovable.
God’s love for us
This tells me something: even when we think we are not good enough, or when we’re still wallowing in sin and doing all the bad things we can think of, GOD STILL LOVES US. Come to think of it, that was why He sent His son Jesus Christ to die for us—because He loves us.
Romans 5:8. “But God showed how much He loved us by having Christ die for us, even though we were sinful”.
If you’re not yet in an intimate relationship with God, do not believe the lie of the devil that you’re not good enough. Do not believe that you have gone so deep in sin that God will not forgive you again. It is not true.
This is the truth from God’s word: “Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved“. Romans 10:13.
All you need do is act on what God’s word in Romans 10: 9.
“that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved”. Just say this prayer in all sincerity:”
Lord I believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross and you raised Him from the dead, and I confess that He is Lord. I ask that you forgive me, Jesus come into my heart and be my Lord. In Jesus name I pray amen.
The time came when I could not hold back any longer. I was “LOVE STRUCK” Yeah! I began to confess my love for him as often as I could. Hahahahaha!
Have you communed with God outside of your prayer room? Do you believe you can speak to God and He can speak back to you? Please leave your answer in the comment box below.
