You’re supposed to be married and you’re still single? Just before you visit a deliverance center, read this very short post and consider if you still need deliverance…
God said “man looks in the physical while God looks in the heart”… Character is not enough to make you attractive! You may have good character, beautiful! You may have good heart, awesome! But if you still look dirty and unattractive, some men will still not give you any attention!
Being born again does not mean being dirty or careless with your fashion! Lots of believers feels that denying the flesh means avoiding to dress well or apply good makeup! But that is so untrue! There is a particular verse in the scripture that have often been misquoted! Let’s look at it
“Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.” 1 Peter 3:3-4
Peter was talking about the beauty of the Spirit. This same verse nullifies the idea that we are supposed to dress shabby. Look at the last word in that quotation, it says “…in God’s sight”. Let’s do a little bible study here… Peter said “your beauty should not come from outward adornment…”, it was right he uses the expensive options as instances because that is what majority would go for! But the same verse shows us that our dressing of any sort does not matter in God’s sight! What matters in God’s sight is our inner self which is our spirit!
The bible says that God clothes the beautiful birds which means God wants the works of his hands to appear beautiful in the physical and in the Spiritual. By dressing in a manner that doesn’t showcase your beauty and decency, you are even making mockery of the works of God’s hands!
In one of our Church services at Ascension Ang. Church, Nnewichi, Nnewi, Nigeria, our man of God and Pastor made a profound statement, hear him ” it is not man who looks in the heart but God! Your good character is not an excuse to look unkempt, very fat and careless! In fact, it is your good looks that will even make your good character noticed!
Your man may see you but never notice you because you aren’t what he has in his picture!
At a point, Naomi asked Ruth who was a widow to clean herself up, dress fine and wear good makeup… Afterwards, she attracted Boaz!”
Remember, Ruth was once married and then lost her husband! If she would attract a man as a widow… How much more you? Stop looking for someone to cast a demon out of you because you may be the one who has bewitched yourself from not getting married!
And hear this… Attraction is not seduction just like being romantic doesn’t mean being sexy! Dressing fine does not mean going in provocative dressings typical of what we see in brothels and movies! Good dressing showcases the beauty of a person!
A lady once told me my teachings such as this is misleading people and I asked her “why” and she said
“You’re advising us to add to what God has made?”
“No” I smiled “if that’s your perception, I wonder why you still have clothes on you at the moment! God created you and you clothed yourself! Now, clothe yourself in a way that showcases the beauty God has made!”
Work on yourself, be romantic! Have a good manner of approach, add a smile, watch your weight, eat good food, wear nice outfit, apply good perfume and make sure you are born again… Let me see that demon that said you won’t get married ” sharp-sharp!”… You will even choose your own husband.
Say you mind…
