GODLY COUNSEL with PASTOR PHILLIP KATAI
I HAVE been in a relationship for 9 months now but a certain prophet told me that I would get married to a policeman and my boyfriend is not a police officer. Please, man of God, help me, what do I do?
ANS: Dear sister thanks for your text. The Bible says seek God with an open heart and you will find HIM.
Jeremiah 29 vs 8 – 19 warns about prophets who seek to give false hope. The Lord has plans for each one of us and it is not to lead us into problems.
You must pray about the prophecy that was declared to you and you must stand ready to heed the Lordâ€™s call when that time comes.
Your current boyfriend may become a policeman in future. If you believe that prophecy, you tarry for it. It is a matter of time! Authentic prophecy will not lie it surely comes to pass. (Habakkuk 2:1-3). On the other hand, if you truly feel that this man is your God-given partner then just hang on and remember to keep God at the centre of your relationship. Blessings!
Is it good to date someone who has a child?
I am a lady aged 20 in love with a man aged 24 who has a child. I have been dating him for 5 years when I ask him about the mother of the child he tells me that he only has relationship with the child. Is it good to date someone who has a child? Please advise!
ANS: My dear sister, you began dating this man at the age of 15 and he already had a child.
There is nothing wrong with dating a person who has had a child, but what you must ask yourself is the circumstances under which he became a parent.
You are too young to be a step-mother and I honestly do not think that it is a time to be thinking about marriage.
Concentrate, instead, on school and building yourself into a Godly woman who follows the principles of love, respect and service. Blessings!
I have a man but I do not love him
I greet you in Jesus Mighty name. I am a woman aged 20 and I have a man but I do not love him. I do not know why, so please help me.
ANS: Sis thanks for your text. Sister you can only fall in love with somebody your heart has accepted and approved.
I do not think you need anybody to force you to fall in love with a man your heart has not really accepted or approved. I am of the view that you neither waste your time nor his time by pretending that you love the man when in the actual sense you have no feelings for him, let alone loving him.
You have a long way to go in life, therefore concentrate on issues that will build up your future and destiny.
To avoid future heartaches heed your heart and discontinue with the relationship. Let him know how you feel about your relationship and break the bad news to him.
This will help him to look elsewhere for a prospective partner. Blessings!
