Do You Have Peace Concerning Your Lover?

Now, this is very important. I usually pray for my spiritual daughters, may you not fall in love with a wrong person.

You see, the issue is when you fall in love; your senses can be dulled. That which ordinarily, you will not accommodate, you will begin to consider.
Suddenly, the person is not that really bad. Suddenly, the person is okay; he is about to get born again. Suddenly, the person may be bad, but he has some nice parts. You start reasoning this way because you are in love!
Before you allow your heart to be stolen, before you are swept off your feet to the land where people don’t think, before you are enraptured in the feelings where butterflies are having a party in your tummy, before you look in the mirror and you cannot see yourself, but the person you have fallen in love with, you better ask some pertinent questions.
On of the things the scripture advises is that you need to “bodyguard” your heart.
Let’s take a look at the scriptures:
And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:7 ESV)
Do I have peace about this person? Now the scripture tells us what this peace is all about or what it looks like.
It surpasses all understanding.
For example, I don’t like what the person's financial status now, but I have peace.
Oh, I like what he does, in fact he is financially okay, but I don’t have peace!
You must follow that peace, not the reasoning of people based on what they can see now! It is only God that sees another thirty years of both of you, so He will guide you by giving you an inner assurance or inner warning. The peace of God is like a security man by the gate of your heart.
If the security man by the gate of your heart, which is this peace, does not allow anybody in, then you mustn’t allow such a person as well.
When there is no peace; that is a warning. When there is peace; that is a go-ahead.
Message translation calls it “a sense of God’s wholeness!’
You cannot explain it, because it passes your understanding, but you just know within you with a strong assurance that you are about to take a right or wrong decision.
It is also good to seek God’s face before you out rightly fall in love so that you are sure you are not substituting feelings of love for the peace of God. They are two different things!
Listen to me, there are people who have ignored that peace of God, and they are regretting it today! One of the most careless things to do on earth is to ignore God!
Now, you also need to know that if you follow that peace of God, you can never go wrong! You don’t decide to marry someone because the person is rich alone or she has hot legs or long fingers, all of those qualities would be okay as long as there is the peace of God!
When I met my wife while on campus, I had certain fears, but there was peace. When we had a major disagreement while we are courting, we wanted to go our separate ways, that peace left me, that peace left her until we quickly resolved the issues a few hours later!
Again you need to know, that in meeting someone, the first thing to do is not to take the relationship to a physical level. Sex will simply confuse and muddle up your feelings, until you cannot identify whether it is peace, feelings or lust.
If you are already married, and you think you made a mistake or you ignored that peace, I don’t want you to give up entirely on your marriage. God’s option will never be divorce in that scenario, but that He can turn things around for you. That is why He is God.
If God can make bitter waters sweet, then He can touch your marriage and make it whole. With prayers, patience and perseverance, God will surely turn things around for you and cause a restoration of all that is lost! Did I hear your Amen?

I love and accept my husband


Lord, help me to be sensitive to that peace all the time.


Before you know it, a sense of God's wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life. (Philippians 4:7 Message)
