One of the reasons some people get married to wrong spouses and face challenges in their marriages is that they fail to discover and allow their divine purpose to guide them on who to marry. If you are still single, you should avoid this error. If you are a parent, you should teach your children and wards to discover their purpose in life and let it guide their choice of the spouse to marry. They should avoid the pain of putting the cart before the horse.

Today’s memory verse says, “And Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, she judged Israel at that time.” We can see that Deborah was first a prophetess before the mention that she was the wife of Lapidoth. This implies that she had found out who she really was, what her God-given assignment was, why she was born and her life’s purpose before seeking to get married. Finding a partner before finding out life’s purpose always produces disastrous consequences.

Imagine if Deborah had married just any man, especially in the patriarchal society in which sha found herself, she would not have fulfilled her calling because not all men, no matter how holy can be so secure around a woman like Deborah. Some Christian men would never support the dreams of a leading woman. It takes only a Lapidoth to marry a Deborah. In an age when women were meant only to be seen and not heard, it takes the voice and support of Lapidoth to silence detractors and critics around his wife. He knew her visions well ahead of marriage and so, stood by her, gave her a right hand of fellowship and gave her room to thrive in ministry.

A lot of people have died untimely and so many visions have been killed or silenced by so-called spouses because they did not marry in line with their divine purposes. For instance, a medical doctor that just discovers after marriage that God wants him to be an itinerant evangelist might not find things easy with his wife because that was not discussed and agreed upon before marriage. What she saw in the man she married was a medical doctor and a medical doctor was who she wanted to be married to all her life. It will take God and extra work to make her support his new-found vision.


1. O God, arise and show me my divine purpose, in the name of Jesus.
2. I shall not mismarry, in the name of Jesus.
3. I shall not marry my enemy, in the name of Jesus.

4. Favour of God to find my divinely-ordained partner, overshadow me, in the name of Jesus.
5. My marriage will not kill my calling and my calling will not kill my marriage, in the name of Jesus.
6. Evil aura, attracting wrong partners to me, expire, in the name of Jesus.
7. I shall fulfil my calling and I shall marry right, in the name of Jesus.
