“I DISOBEYED MY PASTOR”
:

I was listening to Rev. (Mrs) Funke Felix-Adejumo at House on the Rock Cathedral’s Word Conference when she made a surprising remark! She said “thanks to God that I didn’t obey my Pastor! I obeyed the Holy Spirit”. She told us how a man came into her life, his appearance and utterance wasn’t carrying “thunder”. The man proposed marriage to her and she decided to talk to her Pastor/mentor about it.

:

Surprisingly, her Pastor said “that man is not your husband. Don’t marry him”. Well, she saw beyond his pocket, she saw beyond his face and she knew that her Pastor can be wrong… In fact, her Pastor was wrong! He was looking at the pocket and face of the man, the man wasn’t having an aura of boldness, so to say! But Rev. Funke still persisted!

:

After getting married to the man of her choice, she was made! Her husband made her whoever she was! He discovered the Reverend in her and she has no regret whatsoever not listening to her Pastor! She would have made mistakes of marrying another man who was probably rich, very handsome and good to hangout with! But in a corner, she will watch another woman take the place she was supposed to occupy! She would have seen a woman she was supposed to be!

:

Friends, how will you feel seeing who are supposed to be in the future? How will you feel seeing someone else live in a house that was supposed to be yours, live a beautiful life you were meant to live and achieve great things that was supposed to be your projects? 

:

The decisions you take today can affect you for life! Your Pastor cannot make the right choice for you! Your parents may not make the right choice for you and your emotions may also never be able to guide you towards making the right choices! But believe me, you are the one who understands yourself better, you can tell yourself the truth! You know when you’re not getting it right! Perhaps, that person is still in your life simply because you can’t do without his money or you can’t do without the praises people showed on you when you go out with her! Perhaps, you have seen the one person who believes so much in you and your spirit has confirmed to you that he/she is the one but you want an already made man or woman!

:

Maybe you missed him or her because they came to you without makeups and add ons! They came without land properties and vehicles! They came without what your flesh desire and you felt you can’t afford to spend time building a life with him or her even when you know he or she is actually that person who understands you! Don’t miss it because you may be sleeping on top of wealth and still never be happy!

:

Are your parents pressuring you to marry someone just because of what he can offer materially? Is your Pastor match-making you? Sometimes they may be right but trust me… They’re not always right! Do you remember Samuel? Do you remember how God called him? God wasn’t speaking to him through Angels! God spoke to him directly! There was a direct flow of communication between Samuel and God right from Childhood! But when it was time to select a King, Samuel almost made a mistake! He was listening to Jesse’s opinions, he was listening to his emotions! He almost missed it! If he had not paid attention to God, he would have missed it! In that same manner, your Pastor can be wrong! Maybe he hears from God but he can be so wrong! You have the Holy Spirit in you and you also know what you want!

:

I think you need to pause at the moment and think! It is not wrong to put your life on pause so that you can get a direction! You don’t need to keep moving when you’re not moving right! Just think prayerfully and ask yourself if you aren’t missing it!

:

That someone owns a car, buy you so many things and even take you out everyday doesn’t mean you’re meant to be together! It is not I who can predict well too… Don’t come asking me if he or she is the one because I may be wrong too! However, I can guide you towards moving into the right direction. That’s exactly what this article is all about! Allow the Holy Spirit to speak to you! You may not hear a voice but He can always leave a clue!

:

Be sure that the person you’re rejecting isn’t the one who has the wings with which you can fly!

:

I care… God bless you!
