VISION SEEKERS.

"Is he/she my partner"? He said 'God told him', 'My pastor or mentor said that he or she is my spouse', ‘My mum went to different men of God to check if he/she is the right one for me’ and so on. 
.
All these issue are making many choose wrongly these days, and unfortunately they sometimes get stuck in a relationship that has no future, they endure and give themselves encouraging lines to hope for even when it is glaring that it cannot work.
.
Listen ladies, that a man says 'The Lord said' sometimes doesn't mean the Lord said, many times their 'God said' is as a result of the good fruit you're bearing (if you're a Christian). Who wouldn't want such a godly woman as a wife? 
.
The Lord that said to him can also say to you if you pray well. Tell him you'll pray over it and if truly He said such to him, He will reveal it to you too, but that's only when you pray. God is not and will never be an author of confusion!
.
Men, that she's a Christian bearing good fruits does not mean she is yours except if God said so and even if you are really led by God, don't rush her, give her time for prayers so as to be convinced too.
.
God has many ways He speaks to people, through His Word, vision or dream, through a minister, sometimes He speaks to your mind, your conscience. If you're truly a child of God, He must have been talking to you through a medium, so He won't suddenly start using dreams because you want to marry.
.
Also note that some of these dreams are coined from your imagination and thought and sometimes from the devil to deceive you. You need to be careful. Know how He speaks to you, He has been speaking before marriage issue, the question is: are you really listening?
.
Hearing from a minister of God is good but hearing from a good minister of God is the best. They must confirm what God has told you. You must be like the Thessalonians. Check the life of the person if it’s in tune with the word of God. 
.
How can you explain this, 'A man of God' I once talked about from personal experience once said that 'if I had informed him earlier before my previous relationship ended, that he would have made me pregnant for him and he won't leave me. Is that how God stated it out, is that what the Word of God says? 
.
Please when it comes to telling or hearing from a spiritual leader, check the person's life with the word of his mouth, if it does not tally and especially with the Word of God, throw whatever he/she says away.
.
You need to pray and be convinced, let one million and one men of God say he or she is the right one, you must be convinced too because when problems comes, you can boldly approach God since He led you to it and by then you will be the only one in it. 
.
I still see and hear of people who gave out names of potential male or female spouses to different pastors to pray and tell them the right one. Why are you looking for answers/vision all about when you can pray and see it yourself? It is good to have a second opinion, it is second and should not take the place of the first step which is your personal prayer.
.
Some even do this knowing they have fornicated with some (if not all) on the list. Remember, marriage remains honourable and the bed undefiled: but whoremonger and adulterer God will judge (Heb.13:4 with emphasis).
.
Stop looking for fore-telling, future tales (vision), your future is not in the hands of any man, it is in God's hands. What are you even doing piling up names? If you've prayed and you that know he/she is not the one, say it and let that person be, don't delay anybody unnecessarily.
.
Please don't be deceived, go on your knees and pray, ask God for directions always and He will surely answer you. Answers may not be immediate because He knows better than us, persistence and patience is a virtue, He will definitely lead you.
.
Confession: My steps are ordered to meet the right person.
.
Prayer: Lord I receive the strength to wait patiently on you. Help me to hear when You speak and give unto me a discerning spirit.
