To Singles- Prophecies on Marriage and Soul Mates


Hi, everyone! Let’s talk marriage for the singles among us, specifically prophecies on marriage and soul mates. There is this erroneous impression that some people have about marriage, like there is only one person meant for each of us.

I’ve seen people put up with nonsense under the notion that they were prophesied to or saw someone in a dream as their wife or husband and they hang on even when there is no indication the relationship is going anywhere. Others feel they have found their forever love and decide to stick it out.

To illustrate, some years ago I heard Bishop David Oyedepo of the Living Faith Church tell the story of a young man who claimed that God told him Oyedepo’s relative was his wife. Years later, he told the bishop he was still waiting because he was convinced of the revelation he had. Oyedepo told him to stop wasting time and move on with his life since the girl had married someone else.

Even if you’re certain of the prophecy you received or your heart feels helplessly tied to someone, if the person decides otherwise, don’t embarrass yourself by clinging to them. Especially for sisters, if a man is not convinced to marry you, don’t lose sleep over him. God will give you someone else that will be more of what you need than the former.

In fact, I don’t advise any sister to be in a hurry to marry any man that is not excited about her or that feels trapped by a prophecy/revelation or the advice of senior brethren approving their union. That sort of thing can lead to verbal, emotional and physical abuse in future.

To Singles- Prophecies on Marriage and Soul Mates

Remember, no one is your wife or husband until you guys are married, so it makes no sense to call anyone that even on the basis of a thousand revelations or how much your heart is set on them.

I repeat for emphasis, don’t be suckered by the idea of soul mates or “God said you’re my wife” to waste your life for anyone. God has enough people that can complement your life, help you fulfil your destiny and make you happy. If you’re led to one and for some reason it doesn’t work out, open your heart and receive another wonderful person from God.

It’s not that I don’t like the fabulous idea of having a soul mate, but in real life, things don’t always work that way. Don’t put yourself in bondage by hankering after the fantasies sold by the überspiritual and romance novelists.

I notice that the soul mate thing is common in paranormal novels like the ones where werewolves that live for thousands of years are given only one chance at love with a human mate and in the event she dies without being transformed to their immortal nature, they’ll forever be lonely and destructive. These novels paint a picture of perfect mates, where the two characters are matched in every detail and their lovemaking is so passionate and out of this world. That is a nice storyline for entertainment but it’s not real.

If things work out between you and your prophesied or “once in a lifetime” love, fine. If not, remember that, “The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, the world and they that dwell therein” (Psalm 24:1 – KJV). If one relationship fails, go for another and marry if you wish to. If, God forbid, your spouse passes away, after mourning, ask for another if you want to and God can make you just as happy or even happier than before.

May God grant every single who is trusting Him a partner that they can live peacefully and happily with in Jesus’ name.

Would love to read your reactions to this discussion about prophecies on marriage and soul mates. Cheers!

    Thank you so much Ma! God bless you so so much for this. I took two things from this. First “If a man is not convinced to marry you, don’t loose sleep over him. God will give you someone else that will be more of what you need than the former”. Second is “God has enough people that can complement your life, help you fulfil your destiny and make you happy”. A VERY TIMELY PIECE!

  • oforgu ifeanyi Augustine

    This piece marks the kind of mistake most people do make. I will like to address a special note whereby a man makes promises of marriage to a Lady just for the sake of copulation. All this amounts to disappointment and demoralizing the concept of love

  • Thanks ma for this, I learned a lot and am grateful

  • Williams Blessing

    This is so inspiring,ma.
    I really learnt a lot.
    May God continue to bless you.

    “Remember, no one is your wife or husband until you guys are married, so it makes no sense to call anyone that even on the basis of a thousand revelations or how much your heart is set on them”. 👈For me, this was the line that hit the nail on the head.

    Thanks Ma’am for this edifying post.

  • Uchechukwu Jonathan Eze

    Wow! That’s a very wonderful piece. I have now come to realize that on the choice of a life partner, there is the need to separate facts from fantasies.
    Thank you so much, ma.

  • Aṅulika Iwoba

    I completely share your thoughts on this ma.
    I’ve always believed that there is something erroneous in thinking that in the whole wide world made up of billions of people, there is only one person who complements you enough to be your partner.
    That idea would make finding a life partner, a lifetime job in itself.
    Thank you for putting it even more clearly than it has been in my head.

  • Chi

    I completely agree with this. Especially because the “Uberspiritual” as you mentioned, portray the concept of love as something one can only ever find once. Many have lost themselves because after parting with a loved one, they believe that there’s nothing else to live for. Very sad.
    Thank you for this!

  • Emmanuel Ejiofor

    A lot of lessons to be learnt here. The part I loved most was when you mentioned that sisters should not be in a hurry to marry any man that is not excited about them. It also applies to men. It makes no sense to marry someone who is not excited or enthusiastic about the marriage. The marriage won’t last.

    • I think it applies more to sisters than to brothers. The marriage may last if the people involved have an overwhelming sense of duty but it will probably not be enjoyable.

  • Ossai Chidimma Linda

    Amen though, I actually always thought everyone has someone specially made for him/her.
    However, I always considered the possibility of that someone marrying someone else but I thought it impossible because then that person wasn’t really made for you.
    Naive I know but that’s how I think of the issue.

  • Ngwu Chiamaka

    This is an eye-opener obviously. People should realize that marriage is not prophecy issue or the imagery Hollywood and the rest portray to the society.

  • Goodness Oluebube Nwaneji

    How enlightening! There are so many young people that need to see this post.

  • Anyinachi Winifred Chinonso

    Amen to that prayer!
    There is always a complement so we won’t be suckered by the idea of soul mates.
    I’m learning!

  • I have that belief before, but with this your direction, I have learnt some more things. Thank you, ma!

  • Rejoice Ezeabii

    It is so unfortunate that many of our sisters and brothers don’t understand this. They jump into marriage all in the name of prophecies and “God told me…”

  • umeaku obianuju favour

    Many people jump into marriage, without asking questions, and also from God. May God direct everyone to their rightful partner. Thank you soo much ma’am, God bless you.

  • Happiness Simon

    Thank you so much ma for this wonderful piece. I really learnt a lot.

  • Onyekachi Amarachi

    I’ve heard a lot of single people say that they’re waiting for God to show this their spouse and many times i try to explain to them that it doesn’t work that way.
    I really hope people get to learn that life doesn’t work that way.

  • Chidera peace

    This piece is an eye opener, its not just about the prophecies, actions and prayers should follow it up.thank you ma.

  • Blessing Amarachi Azoribe

    This is really an eye-opener. Imagine a brother who doesn’t greet you at all comes to you after service one day and says, ”Sister, I saw you in my dream and God said you will be my wife.”

  • Rita

    The modern definition of love comes under the “woke” umbrella.

    We do need wisdom-filled awareness posts like this.

  • Rita

    The new definition of love is somewhat lost to those who believe in “woke culture”

    Old school is the way to go sometimes. In this noisy world of ours.

  • Ifechukwu Izueke

    Nice one , a great advice .

  • Agwubuo Ebube

    Wisdom filled…Thank you ma for this eye and brain opener

  • Okereke victoria chigemezu

    Thank you ma for this great piece, I really learnt a lot.
