Dear young Lady still struggling to find Mr Right, know that your wealth and all you have acquired in life, should be kept under the man. Remember that submission and humility are the expectations of God from you in respect of your relationship with your husband. Do you know this?

Why Some Good Ladies Remain Single for a Long Time

Many a time, I sit down to wonder why some good ladies between 30 and 40 years have remained single despite their goodness and for some whose Christian lives are totally committed, and dedicated to God. It is very unfortunate that a lady who is so dedicated and committed to the service of God will still be expecting a prospective spouse at the age of 40 years. One would begin to wonder if the perceive commitment and dedication were real. Again one would be forced to ask, ‘Are the promises of God real?’ Of a truth, the promises of God are real but there are some things I have observed are some weakness of some of these Ladies.  

In 1 Corinthians 11:3, the Bible says, “But I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God” (also compare Ephesians 5:23). The head of the woman is the man. This undisputable fact is what most ladies do not understand. Most of the Ladies are still single today because they have failed to acknowledge this singular fact. No matter where you have attained in life as per social status or the kind of fame you have or the kind of academic qualification you may have acquired in life, when it comes to terms of marriage, you should as a matter of priority refuse to give them a single recognition.

There was this story I heard about a sister who married at the age of 40 years to a man who is 8 years younger than her. At age of 20, this sister was already in the University to study Law. She graduated and when there was no prospective husband coming her way, she went back to University and did post graduate Diploma in Accounting and went further to do her Master’s Degree in Accounting and finally her Doctorate Degree in Law. With all these she had acquired, it was extremely hard for her to humble herself before any man. She felt that she doesn’t need anything again in life that a man can offer. She didn’t understand the verdict of God in Genesis 3:16 which says, “To the woman He said: “I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception; in pain you shall bring forth children; your desire shall be for your husband and he shall rule over you.”  

However, just one day, God spoke to her in her dream. She understood where her problem lies. She started opening herself. She started communicating with people, she discarded her pride and what she thought she had acquired. It was then the young man that finally married her showed up.

Dear young Lady still struggling to find Mr Right, know that your wealth and all you have acquired in life, should be kept under the man. Remember that submission and humility are the expectations of God from you in respect of your relationship with your husband. Until you realize this, you can never attract a man to come and ask for your hand in marriage. If perhaps someone comes, the moment he discover you are not good enough for a wife, he will immediately bolt out. Please kindly learn humility and submission for without them your hand can not be joined in marriage. Think about this.
