CAUSES OF SINGLENESS

WHY ARE YOU SINGLE? I maintain that for every man there is a woman and vice versa. However there are factors militating against the marriage of many. Broadly speaking, these factors are spiritual, psychological/mental or physical. But they can be inter-twined. In all cases the devil is at work because marriage is an institution of God for the benefit of mankind and the devil is vehemently against every good plan of God for man. 1. Lack of knowledge/ false knowledge The fact that it is not the will of God for you to be miserable and lonely is the first truth you have to grasp. Here is the message of God to you and I in the book of Jeremiah 29:11-12 "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope"(NIV). You need to know this so that you can resolve to claim your own spouse in prayer. The Bible says in Hosea 4:6 "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge." And in the book of Proverbs 11:9 " ... But through knowledge the righteous will be delivered'. Most people are single because they do not have the right knowledge about themselves and marriage. Some have been mislead to hate the opposite sex. . There are those who have absorbed false doctrine that adornment is evil for women and made the young ladies to dress in sorrowful manner at the expense of their marriage. Some people thinks it does not matter how they dress because they are Christians, young men and women alike. Knowledge is what will liberate you, the knowledge that you gain and apply. There is also the shocking revelation that most of the youth of our days are single in pursuance of money. In a survey that I carried out before my first book on this subject, I asked young ones who believe that they are late for marriage to reflect on their lives and 1

give the reason they think is responsible for their late marriage. The analysis of their response is given below. Education 37% Finance 33% Spouse availability 14% Paren~ 8% Others 8% 100 This is Greek wisdom that is a divine foolishness. The Bible says in Eccl 3:1 "To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven:". Parental manipulation. Many people have pleased their parents to the detriment of their future. There are many parents trying to live their lives through their children. They are practising witchcraft without knowing. So many young ones are pursuing study courses that are not meant for them simply because they want to please their parents and thus wasting their youthful life. These causes that I have identified are some of the issues to be dealt with here today. I intend to share with you, by the leading of the Holy Spirit, such knowledge as will liberate you from the bondage of loneliness and break the yoke of ungodly marital delay in your life. But before we continue let us say the following prayers with every seriousness in Jesus name. Prayer points i. Lord I thank you for this moment in Jesus name. Thank you for not forsaking me in Jesus name ii. Every satanic veil covering my vision that has thus far prevented me from seeing myself and the purpose of God for my life, burn off by the fire of God in Jesus name. iii. Every satanic plug in my ears preventing me from hearing from God, 2

be pulled out by the hand of God in Jesus name. iv. Oh Lord! Let your word locate me in this seminar and heal my singleness and loneliness in Jesus name. Amen.
