DON’T LET ANYONE PRESSURE YOU INTO MARRIAGE

Imagine you went to town to get an item which is supposed to last for a lifetime. As you take a look at it the sales person puts pressure on you to buy it fast and at all cost in haste. The sales persons behaviour could either be because his commission or salary depends on that, the item has a defect or probably the expiry date is due. Most of us won’t give in to that pressure or sweet talk no matter how good the price is. On the other hand, others will get it and later regret or live with the consequence.

This illustration happens in marriage too. Pressure and worries are intelligent robbers that make people accept counterfeits. If people are putting pressure on you to get married because you are due or overdue and you allow that to force you into marriage, you will live with regret for a decision taken under pressure which will backfire in the end.

You will end up marrying a wrong person, which is one of the causes of divorce and failures in marriages. One of the good examples is the story of Abraham; instead of waiting for God, he rather fell for the pressure of his wife to accept his maidservant “Hagar” as a substitute wife. This led to the birth of a child which the world is still reeling under its effect of unwise and pressured choice.

The best thing to do is to wait on the Lord as the scripture said in Psalm 37:7 (MSG) “Quiet down before God, be prayerful before him. Dont bother with those who climb the ladder, who elbow their way to the top”. Its really hard to wait for the right person in your life especially when the wrong ones look so good. But remember this, at your absolute best, you still won’t be good enough for the wrong person.

At your worst you will still be worth it to the right person. So at the end of the day, its worth the wait. Above all, being single doesnt equate to being desperate. Sometimes you are waiting for what you deserve, and not whats easily attainable. In conclusion “It is dangerous and sinful to rush into the unknown” – Proverbs 19:2 (TLB).
