So, you would like to marry a called man or woman – or you already married one.
You would like to have called children – or you already have them.
However, let me give you a little heads-up:
They. Don’t. Belong. To. You.
Their first love is not you.
Their highest loyalty is not to you.
Dunsin Oyekan shared how, growing up, his dad would take him on ministers’ retreats and vigils. He was the only boy, and his sisters would lightly mock him because he would have to fast with his dad the whole day till they got home at night after the meetings.
He was frustrated and didn’t understand why he couldn’t be like other kids – or at least like his sisters.
Our children are not too young to know God.
They are not too young to be filled with the Spirit.
They are not too young to speak in tongues.
They are not too young to be used by God.
I once watched a video of young children praying in tongues – and the comments by some Christian adults shook me to the core…
When I got married, I just wanted to have my own kids like every other woman. Painfully, it didn’t happen as quickly as I hoped.
I remember far back in 2010 (six years into my marriage) when a big sister of mine I used to pray with at that time, said to me during a prayer session, “God said He didn’t create you just to have babies.”
