That is why they say “when mercy speaks, protocols are broken”. Grace Abiara shares testimonies as to how she eventually met her husband after so many prophecies.
When Grace was told many years ago that she would marry a man of God, she decided to wait until the manifestation of the prophecy. She had many suitors who asked for her hand in marriage but she declined. Many years later, at 56 years old, Grace got married to the immediate past General Evangelist of the Christ Apostolic Church Worldwide, Prophet Samuel Abiara. Grace does not regret waiting for her time even though it came with a lot of pressures from family and friends. In an interview, she talks about the journey to getting married as a virgin in her fifties. She said, You can see what happened in the life of Abraham, Sarah and Haggai. That is the perfect example of my life. Despite my age, I did not go against the word of God. Immediately the Holy Spirit said something about a particular suitor, I listened. Everyone that came was rejected by the Holy Spirit. I prayed myself; I did not need to meet any man of God. When my husband asked me to marry him, I talked to God and the revelation came without any delay.
Immediately, I called my prophet who told me he would call me back after some days. When he called me, he told me that God approved of the marriage. The devil would make every effort to derail you but when you are focused and determined and you ask for the grace of God, He would lead you. It got to a stage where the devil started telling me that, was it not obvious that I was ageing and kept urging me to settle for anyone that came my way. But immediately I prayed to God about it, I had to remind God that He is the only one with a perfect answer and He is a good God and my case would not prove him to be a liar. I remember telling God a year before I got married that I had never asked Him for a birthday gift but He should give me my own birthday gift by granting my heart desire last year. Before the end of that programme, God proved himself. I have always put my trust in God.
And It Holds A Beautiful Message To Singles Scared Of Getting Married I faced a lot of pressure but I had God on my side.
I faced pressure to the extent that my family, friends began to tell me to marry just anybody even if the person was not a Christian. Anytime I got such advice, all I used to say was ‘okay’. I never fought them because I knew that it was borne out of the love and care they felt towards me. If they did not care, they would just be watching me. For instance, one of my bosses in the office advised me to change my church but I had to tell her that the issue on ground was not about church. I told her that when God finished with me, everything would be a thing of the past. Even friends that are Muslims were concerned about my situation because they all knew that I have a wonderful character and I do not fight with people. Within me, I knew that God was going to answer my prayer.
