05 December 2023: VITAL PREPARATIONS BEFORE MARRIAGE (4) – Luke 14:28-32

As simple as they are, the basic preparations we have been looking at make the difference between an ordinary marriage and a destiny marriage. Here are some more things to consider:


Prayerfully determine the number of children you will have. Plan on the spacing too.

As a sister, start your confession of faith for conception and delivery from courtship. Also, plan for who will help you nurse them in the early periods of delivery. Prayerfully plan about the person you will involve. Make sure you are not exposed to counsels from unsaved family members.

12. PREPARE TO SOW SEEDS INTO YOUR MARRIAGE: You should sow your marriage seed to go ahead of you into the future. Also, discuss your seed profile and seek counsel from your pastor so as not to be stingy towards God. Remember, seed in the kingdom is not about money. It’s about recognizing the principle of seed time and harvest, and working it to your advantage.

13. PRIORITISE HYGIENE MATTERS: As a single sister or brother, you must be beautiful in and out. After marriage, your spouse must meet you clean in and out. For example, maintain good and clean breath.

14. MAKE PLANS FOR A DECENT HONEYMOON, NOT A WISHY-WASHY ONE: Plan for it together. It doesn’t have to be expensive, but it should be decent.

15. NOTIFY THE CHURCH WELL AHEAD BEFORE THE WEDDING DATE AND PLAN TO GO THROUGH THE COUNSELLING CLASSES: It is always encouraged that you do your wedding in your local church, and where it is not possible, carry your pastor along.

Marriage is a reward and not a gift. It is garbage in, garbage out. Be fully prepared to have a heaven-on-earth marriage that God can use as a masterpiece for generations yet unborn.

PRAYER: Lord, I receive divine help and assistance in preparing for my marriage in Jesus’ name. Amen!

Hosea 1:1-3:5; 1 John 5:1-21; Psalm 124:1-8; Proverbs 29:5-8
