7 Dreams Warning You About Your Relationship

When God created us, He saw it fit that we should have partners to live life with. This means that it’s normal if you have a desire for intimacy and companionship. So, why do we have this desire for a partner?

Life would be difficult if we had to face it alone. I’m not saying that we cannot go through life if we don’t have partners, but life is fuller and sweeter when you can share your wins, downs, dreams and vision with someone else. As they always say, no man is an island.

Before going into a relationship with anyone, it is important to ask for God’s guidance. God is our helper; He sees things that we cannot, and we need His protection. As you are bringing someone into your life, remember that there is the physical and spiritual realm involved. God wouldn’t want you to be harmed along the way.

When you are in a relationship and God wants to send you a message, He usually communicates through dreams. Be it a good thing or a bad one, He will make sure that you get the message that He is sending to you.

That is why I encourage you to join the Dreams Decoded course if you haven’t already. It will help you interpret your own dreams and understand dream symbols, signs and more!

Let us look at the bad dreams that come as a warning about your relationship. It’s important that when you get these dreams, you try to remember all the details as you don’t want to miss the message that is being sent to you.

  1. Seeing yourself naked in a dream –

No one wants to be seen naked. Everyone tries to cover up their nakedness because of what this represents. Seeing yourself or your partner naked is a bad sign. This means that the enemy wants to shame you. You might be confident that this relationship will end in marriage, but the enemy wants to bring shame by making sure the relationship doesn’t work out.

I want you to always remember that nakedness in a dream should bring concern to you. This concern should push you into constant prayer and fasting, because some things cannot go without doing so.

2. Fruits Switched from Ripe to Raw –

Fruits are a symbol of sweetness, health and vitality for the body. That is why most people enjoy ripe fruit rather than one that isn’t ready yet.

When you dream of a fresh and ripe basket of mangoes for example, and then see it swapped with an unripe bunch, what does this mean?

It symbolises a swap of your blessing. Instead of enjoying your harvest, you are delayed. Unripe fruit shows unreadiness or having to wait for something. Waiting isn’t always a bad thing, but in this case, your blessing was ready and got stolen from you.   

In your relationship, this could signify either a counterfeit or just the wrong person completely. Pray about this and receive understanding from God.

3. Seeing Fire or a House Burning –

This is directly talking about your life. When fire burns something, it destroys it. That object is burnt and reduced to nothing. This means that the enemy wants to destroy that relationship.

Notice how the relationship develops after having such a dream. Most times, you will start having problems that were not there before.

God is a different fire; He consumes all the spears and arrows that are directed at you.  This is according to His Word in Hebrews 12:29. So, do not fear but trust in the Lord, He will rescue you!

4. Missing Things –

In a dream you see yourself missing the way, a wedding or even a bus that takes you somewhere important. If you look back to that dream, you need to ask yourself what made you miss your way in the first place. Is it maybe distraction or people steering you the wrong way?

In the context of a relationship, missing your way could mean that the person you are with isn’t the one for you. Instead, you have missed the right turn and now delayed in this aspect. What is meant for you is passing you by and what you are holding on to is not what is yours.

5. Spirit Spouse –

This is a type of dream experienced by many people. There are spirits that are sent specifically to destroy the marital destiny of Christians. This spirit is sent to give you stagnation in everything that concerns your marriage.

Why you shouldn’t ignore dreaming of sex in a dream, or marriage to an unknown person is because of the jealousy such a spirit possesses. It will cause you to meet the wrong people, constantly get rejected or if you do end up in marriage, it’s a terrible one.

6. Dream about a Break-up –

The enemy is working hard to separate you and your partner. He knows that this is a good relationship, and he doesn’t approve it. That is why when something is from God, the enemy will fight it until it’s no more. Keep pushing and take heed to such a dream. It’s a warning from God!

  • Having strange people appear in your dreams –

If you are in a relationship and you dream about your partner’s relatives or people that you don’t know, it is a warning from God. You might be in a relationship with this person and there is someone that is not happy.  Usually, this person is eyeing your partner for themselves. Sometimes it’s relatives who wish him to be with someone else.

Having looked at these dreams and their meanings, what then do you do when they visit you? You must take action because God has spoken, and you have heard His voice. Embark on a prayer journey that will help you get your deliverance, by the grace of God.

                                                         Effective Ways to Deal with Bad Dreams

While you know some warning signs about your relationship, you need to also know how to effectively cancel any plans of the enemy.

Some ways this can be done is by canceling the dream as soon as you wake up. Don’t wait until the evening or next day. It’s important that you break any spirit immediately, by the power of God!

Next, immense yourself in prayer according to scripture.

Daniel 2:22 reminds that “it is He who reveals the profound and hidden things; He knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with Him.”

Ask the Lord to speak and confirm this relationship to you. As much as God speaks, it’s also important to listen and take action.

I pray that God sends forth His military angels to guard and protect you, in Jesus’ name!

Identifying Signs of Witchcraft Attacks

Witchcraft is a practice that is very common all over the world. Although some may claim that witchcraft does not exist, if you have experienced it, then I know you can testify of its realness! A lack of knowledge regarding spiritual matters only leaves a good Christian lost, hurt and destroyed – but that is not your portion, in Jesus’ name!

These are the signs that will alert you that you are under witchcraft attack. When you see any of these signs, it’s time to stand on the Lord. This should push you to fast and pray more because one thing is for certain, the enemy doesn’t have off days. It is only God that can rescue you, so draw closer to Him.

1. Sleep Paralysis

When you sleep and you see or feel a dark presence that enters your bedroom, this is a sign of a spiritual attack. I know society has painted sleep paralysis to be a normal and psychological phenomenon, but I don’t want you naïve to the spiritual side of things.  

With sleep paralysis, you often cannot move and the spirit being has control over your entire self. You may try to scream or move your body, but you can admit that this doesn’t usually work, until you involve Jesus.

These spirits are sent to sleep with you and disturb your marital destiny, torment your life and keep you in fear and restlessness throughout the day and night.  

Don’t open doors to the enemy by not praying. As soon as you gain your strength back, stand up and pray. Ask God to destroy every spirit that is being sent against you!

2. Bad Dreams and Nightmares

 This is a clear sign that something is wrong. Isn’t sleep supposed to be peaceful? When sleep is accompanied by bad dreams and nightmares, there is something happening in the spiritual realm.

Witchcraft attacks are sent to you to make you uncomfortable and not enjoy your life. When you have such negative dreams and nightmares, witches are visiting you in your sleep. Eating in the dream, losing your teeth and shoes, and even forgetting your money are some spiritual attacks that you must not ignore!

Jeremiah 46:28 says: “Do not be afraid of the king of Babylon, whom you are now fearing; do not be afraid of him,’ declares the Lord, ‘for I am with you to save you and deliver you from his hand.”

God says not to be afraid of these witches for He is with you. He will save and deliver you from them, in Jesus’ name.

3. Sickness

When one is constantly sick, many things come to a standstill in life. Work and doing daily tasks and routines become a challenge, and I want you to remember that this is not the will of God for your life.  Witches use sickness to derail you from doing productive things in your life. Their motive is mostly born out of jealousy.

They inflict one with a certain sickness that steals your money since you need medication and doctor appointments. When you do go to the hospital, the doctor sometimes cannot even find anything wrong.

I once met a lady who told me that whenever they planned to do something big with her husband, he would be involved in a car accident. He had four car accidents to his name, which isn’t a normal thing. All the money kept for whatever the plan was would end up being used to seek medical help for him.

Identifying witchcraft attacks requires one to have their spiritual eyes open. It’s not something that you can see with your physical eyes and understanding.

4. Mind Oppression and Confusion

Most times, witches oppress your mind so that you cannot think liberally. You are like a caged person; your mind doesn’t take you further than your eyes can see. This hinders you from moving forward in your life due to confusion and mind oppression.

You cannot make decisions and you’re constantly in a state of a mind battle. All this is not from God!

When the enemy attacks, he first starts with the mind. If he can get ahold of that, then he has won. But, Jesus has promised to liberate you and you are victorious over any plans of the enemy, in the name of Jesus.

5. Spirit of Slumber

This spirit is associated with laziness and excessive sleep. There are people who take pride in sleeping while others are working. They don’t see anything wrong with that. They believe they deserve some rest, but what rest do you require with no work or direction? Do you see how this is a spiritual battle?

Being idle, directionless and unaware of your purpose in life is the will of the evil one. But God has great plans for your life, so may you not miss your purpose!

This spirit also attacks children. A son or daughter may be very brilliant at school, and suddenly is no longer interested in academics. He or she drops out and begins hanging out with the wrong crowd. How do you explain this?

We need to continually keep our children in prayer against plans that aren’t from God. The enemy is also fighting our children’s destiny because he knows that they will rise and become fearful men and women of God.

6. Constant Spiritual Attacks

Whenever something bad happens, it happens to you. This is the type of unfortunate reality that some may be facing. When a costly mistake that gets one fired happens at work, it happens to you. Isn’t that clear that the enemy is at work here?

The enemy is trying to push you out of this comfortable situation. He wants to bring misery into your life and make you start to question the love of God. A witch doesn’t want to see you working, owning a business or studying.

You need to check if any doors are opened that are allowing the enemy in. It could be lust, jealousy or any sin that you can think of.

Why do People Practice Witchcraft?

  1. Generational –

There are families that have been practicing witchcraft from generation to generation. The existing generation teaches the upcoming one when they are still young on how to do it.

Growing up in the village, we would hear the elders whispering about certain families that have a history of practicing witchcraft. They would say “the grandmother was a known witch; the daughters are witches, and the younger ones are also showing signs of witchcraft.”

This practice is in the bloodline, and one is born into it.

2. Jealousy –

Some people are so driven by jealousy of others’ success that they resort to witchcraft in a bid to see their downfall. Jealousy goes with a lot of evil thoughts; wishing evil on others and going to extremes to see them suffer. The result is for a jealous person to consult with spirit mediums to try and hurt others.

What comes out of that consultation does not only hurt the other person, but even the jealous individual. How? When a witch is dealing with a prayerful Christian, many of these arrows will not succeed. In the spirit world, this means the plans backfire back to the witch sowing evil.

3. Initiation –

Initiation is another way people get involved in witchcraft. It is important to know the type of people you hang out with as you can end up joining their evil deeds unknowingly. Witches are always looking for new people to recruit to carry out their evil deeds.

If you keep company with evil, you surely will fall prey to their evil schemes. When children are growing up, parents always check on who they associate with. This is because they know that it is easier to start following other people’s way of living – birds of the same feather flock together!

4. Consultation of Spirit Mediums and Witch Doctors –

One thing I love about Christianity is its transparency. The Bible is the guide on how to live – there are no “ifs” or “buts” about this. On the other hand, consulting spirit mediums has many hidden secrets, unlike the Bible that is very clear.

When you consult a witch doctor for instance, they provide you with “traditional” herbs but never share what the consequences may be for future generations. In some African films, we often see the negative consequences that happens to someone consulting with such doctors. It’s not worth it!

I listened to a story where a brother was seeking prayers because he consulted a spiritualist and was given herbs. Now these herbs had turned into a snake that was visiting him every night. He said that sometimes he had a vision of himself leaving his bedroom in a spirit-like form and meeting a group of people. They would travel together and do works of the dark world, leaving him as tired as someone who had been working the entire day.

All he consulted for was to boost his business but look, he ended up in witchcraft!

5. Using Charms

Have you ever seen people who so much believe in charms that they use it for everything? Such a person can go for an interview with a charm in the pocket, approach women for dating with it, and even use them for disagreements with others. One who believes that everything they do needs enhancement of charms ends up in witchcraft and evil dealings.

Imagine if one must use a charm to get a promotion at work. The person will end up enchanting the name of the other colleagues to remove them from post. Isn’t that witchcraft?

Witchcraft attacks is nothing new. It has brought much misery, loss and hopelessness to many Christians.

Now that you have identified that witchcraft is used to attack you as a Christian, what’s next? Christians always turn to God in whatever the situation. God is our shield, our strong tower where we run to hide. Witches cannot be fought with your own physical understanding and strength. You need the supernatural power of God to be victorious.

For you to fight witchcraft, you need to be born again. This means that the old in you is no more – you are a new person. When you are born again, the enemy cannot locate you as he will be using your old self to try to attack you.

Ephesians 6:12 says “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”

A spiritual warfare is not an easy one, you need spiritual covering to be able to win. It’s important to live in prayer. Go to church and fellowship with other children of God. This will not give the enemy a chance to attack your life. Whenever a witch tries to access you, they will find that you are covered.

Remember to also fast and pray. Asking for protection and guidance each day is important in your walk with Him. Ask Him to shield you from witches and weaken their spirits every time they think about you.

This is the most effective way to deal with anything that is unwanted in your life. Many people relax and believe that these witchcraft attacks will go away but forget that this is a war declared upon your life, and the only way to fight it is through spiritual warfare.

I pray for protection over you and your family, in the mighty name of Jesus!

15 Dream Symbols For Financial Breakthrough

I’m sure you have heard many times that God speaks to us through dreams. He warns us of dangers we are facing, good things that are yet to happen, and direction on the next season of life.

Why does God speak to us in dreams?

Sleep is when you are most still and peaceful. There are no distractions and God can easily have access to you in this state.

I know that interpreting dreams and understanding them can be a challenge. That is why the Dreams Decoded course is available for you to use. It will help you interpret your own dreams, symbols and more through the power of the Holy Spirit.

When God is about to give you a financial breakthrough, He will speak to you through dream symbols.

God has no limitation. When He wants to bless you, He does so in great measures to show that He is God. Quite often, before these blessings come, He can visit you in a dream to show you what He is yet to do. When you see such dreams, the most important thing is to pray upon them and ask God to give you guidance in protecting the blessings you are about to receive.

If you see one of these symbols in your dream, rejoice and know that God has remembered you, and wants to bless you abundantly.

Gold Colour

Gold is precious. It is very expensive hence why most people don’t own it. Gold in a dream means that you are about to be blessed financially. Your finances will be abundant and generational. This symbol is one to rejoice and be expectant about.

Isaiah 60:17 says that “Instead of bronze I will bring you gold and silver in place of iron. Instead of wood I will bring you bronze and iron in place of stones.”

God doesn’t bless with the ordinary and expected. He brings out the best and He brings no sorrow with it. He wants you to enjoy freely to the glory of His name.

Fruits

When you see fruits in a dream, your financial breakthrough has located you. Fruits symbolise the hard work that has been put in and they come as a reward. God has seen how much work you have done and is about to reward you abundantly.

A tree does not bear a single fruit, it bears fruits that leave it hanging heavily. God is showing you that you will be like a tree – and your finances uncountable. This is time to pray that this blessing begins to manifest in the physical. Remember when this happens, the enemy is watching. He springs into action to try and stop these blessings or to divert them.

On the contrary, there is negative meaning in dreaming about fruits. If you dream of rotten fruits, it means that there is a spirit wanting to take your finances from you. This is a dream that you must cancel as soon as you wake up, don’t give the devil a chance to let it manifest.

Receiving Money

Receiving money is a pleasant thing whether you are awake or in a dream. This means that there are finances lying somewhere that are meant for you. You might be waiting for a certain institution to pay you – be it pension, tax returns, overdue salary payments or money tied up somewhere.

Pray that God releases these finances because they are meant for you!

A Cheque

This is a sign that riches and wealth are coming your way. Usually, cheques are signed in business dealings. This means that you are about to prosper, and your financial battles have been won. Your financial breakthrough has arrived, so be excited about it.

Rain

Rain is a good symbol in a dream. It means that all your financial problems have been washed away and you will never see them again. The new is coming, you will be able to sort out all your financial issues with the helping hand of God. God has opened the heavens for you, and has watered your garden of life. Things are changing permanently in your life.

Milk or Honey

Milk and honey is always associated with good. Where there is milk there is nourishment and honey is sweet, similar to how finances makes life better. You are entering into a season where everything is going to be flowing smoothly for you. You are about to taste how good it is to obey God and to live in His word.

Flying in a Dream

The more you give, the more you receive. God is taking you to a level that you have never imagined. You are about to soar with your wings spread, and our Father will uplift you. Most of the time, this dream happens when you have been stagnant and praying that God changes your situation.

This is a financial breakthrough that will come with speed – faster than you can imagine. Just like an eagle, you will not miss your breakthrough in Jesus’ name!  

Grain or Seeds

Your harvest has arrived. You have been sowing seeds of goodness and God is saying that your time has come to harvest. Isn’t it a beautiful thing to know that God takes care of the seeds we sow and brings us our harvest?

Psalm 107:37-38 says “They sowed fields and planted vineyards that yielded a fruitful harvest; He blessed them, and their numbers greatly increased, and He did not let their herds diminish.”

God is about to increase your finances, all that you have been praying for has been granted. If you have been praying for a financial breakthrough, thank the Lord in prayer as He has done it for you.

Distributing Food

Can someone who is lacking food distribute to other people? Dreaming of food distribution symbolises plenty for yourself. You have become a blessing to those who are less fortunate. God has trusted you; He has elevated you to a level that you will have much left to share with others.

You might find that you are from a disadvantaged family and God says you shall be the one to save the whole family. When God trusts you like this, remember to do as God says. Use wisdom when you are blessed financially, and I pray more grace and favour upon you, in Jesus’ name!

Animals in a Dream

There are animals that are a symbol of wealth such as cows, camels, sheep and donkeys.

Abraham in the book of Genesis was so rich that he couldn’t count his livestock. When you see these animals in your dream, it means that God is about to make you rich.

When animals are chasing you in a dream, it is a bad sign. There is a force that wants to take away your blessings that God has in store for you.

Being at a Farm

This is a sign that you will harvest from different angles that you have been sowing in. Remember farmers sow different crops and keep different kinds of livestock as well. Your financial breakthrough will be all round – wherever you sowed a seed, you will reap.

Fish

When Peter – the fisherman- was fishing and caught one fish, Jesus instructed him to cast his net again. When he took it out, he found the net full of fish. When you dream catching fish, this means your business or career is about to boom. You are about to experience an overflow, and your finances is about to stabilize.

Keys

Keys in the day-to-day life opens doors for us to enter. In the same way, keys in a dream symbolizes doors of finances, opportunities and favour in your life.

This key can be for that business contract you are waiting for, a job offer, or freedom from debt to name a few.

Mango Trees or Mangoes

Mangoes are not only juicy but a type of fruit that is rich in flavour. Dreaming of a mango tree implies great favour and harvest. God is saying your season is ripe, and you’re about to enjoy the flavour of life with God by your side.

Open Door or Gate

This means there are new opportunities waiting for you to grab them. These opportunities may come in the form of a promotion at work, a new and better job, a business deal and any other blessing you have been praying for.

An open door or gate implies easy access to a breakthrough that you have been trusting in God for!

Now that God has shown you these dream symbols indicating your financial breakthrough, there are scriptures that you need to remember that talk about finances.

Financial abundance is one thing that changes people. When one has nothing, there is humility and time for God.

I want you to remember that any favor, opportunity or blessing you receive comes from God. Don’t forget about Him!

This is why 1 Timothy 6:17 says “Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.”

Now that money is available, you need wisdom from God to be able to keep and not waste it. I pray that you receive more grace to manage your finances to the glory of God!

These are only some symbols symbolising financial breakthrough, but I also want you to consider other symbols symbolising other parts of life – such as death in a dream. This may be a warning sign from God, so don’t ignore it!

May you be blessed beyond measure in Jesus’ name.

Signs this Person is Sent by God

In the clothing industry, we know that there are original branded clothes and imitations. Some imitations look real until you take them home and wear for a certain period. You will notice the color fades and quality is not so good after all. What a waste of money and time, right?

This is the same in relationships. You have the person God has reserved for you and then you get the counterfeit. So, how do you know if this person is sent from God? How do you break generational problems that might try creep up in your dating?

In Christianity, whatever we do should be guided by God. Even when we get into relationships, God should be the source and full center. If you feel you are ready to start a relationship, it’s important that you involve God. This is to allow Him to bring forward the right person for you.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-11: says; “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone?”

Being in a relationship and having companionship is something that God approves; however, it should be done in a godly way. Nobody can deny that it’s always good to have a partner to do life with, share your burdens and even the good times too.

That is why it is important to invite God into this part of your life because should you choose wrong, the consequences will be worse. This part can be avoided through prayer and fasting.

God has put in place visible signs for us to know if this specific person is from Him. As we know, He is a God of order. He won’t allow you to figure things out through trial and error – but will be the guiding hand into that peaceful and loving relationship.

In Isaiah 45:2, God says that “I will go before you and will level the mountains; I will break down gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron.”

Isn’t it wonderful to know that we have a helper, a guide and a God who goes ahead of us to prepare the way?

These are the signs of someone that is coming from God in a relationship. This will help you to read between the lines in the future interactions.

1. Is Truthful

A man or woman from God has the spirit of truth operating. Whatever the person says aligns with the actions. The person will not say one thing about accomplishments, family, work etc., and something else the next day. That is a clear sign of a counterfeit.

This is one part of a relationship that leads to failure. If someone comes into a relationship and tells many lies, distrust will begin to build up – that is a given. A relationship built on lies will not stand the test of time, so guard your heart from this.

I remember a sister’s story that I read about. She said that the only true thing that this brother told her when they met was his name and surname. As funny as it may sound, this is the reality for many while dating. Dishonesty is a big part of the relationship and that is because there has been no time taken in venting out the person’s intentions first.

You can imagine the disappointment that comes with a failed relationship.

In 1 Corinthians 4:2 the Bible says: “Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful”.

If this man or woman cannot prove to be faithful, then is it worth entertaining the relationship? Anybody God gives to you will embody His character. That is not to say the person will be perfect, but they will strive to be like Jesus.

That takes us to the next point – being God fearing.

2. God Fearing

When God lives in someone, there are fruits that you will see very evident in this person’s life. The way the individual talks, his/her intentions and even the relationship with God will tell you everything you need to know.

There’s a saying that if one cannot be faithful to God, how can they be faithful to you? That is to say, a man or a woman who is lukewarm, has a rocky relationship with God and isn’t fully committed cannot be that for you.

3. Respect

A man who doesn’t respect you is already a red flag as many would say.

Respect is fundamental and if someone doesn’t respect you through their actions and how they speak to you, then there’s little value for your well-being, and as a person.

One thing I know for sure is that God doesn’t want you to settle for a relationship with no respect in it. You must remember 1 Peter 2:9 that reminds you that: “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”

Would anyone dare disrespect a chief, president or anyone from the royal family? No. Then you should view yourself the same – a child of the most high God!

4. Pushes you to God

Someone sent by God will encourage your godly life. That is because he/she too holds the same beliefs and values.

If you are a virgin or waiting until marriage to have sex, meeting someone that wants to push you into intimacy should already tell you the person’s intentions. However, someone that is committed, and willing to wait are green flags!

How about clubbing, drinking or even living a promiscuous life? All these are signs that God is not in this relationship. It’s time to come out and wait for the very best from Him.

However, someone inviting you to church, Bible study, meeting out in public to spend time together and honoring God in the process shows that this person cares what God thinks.

5. Sacrifices Time

For love to develop between two people, time must be sacrificed. This time is spent getting to know each other, having conversations about the future, your childhood etc. All this is to know the kind of person you’re getting involved with.

But what about someone who always makes excuses to meet up? Doesn’t respond to messages/calls until days later or when you are together, there’s no interest in getting to know you. These are tale-tale signs of a relationship not heading too far.

But a man or woman who is invested in you will remember details you share, where you grew up, what you want out of life – and these are just to name a few. This is the kind of person worth entertaining.

6. You Feel Peace

There are people who don’t see peace as their desire. They will always try and find a problem where there is none. All they do is pick a fight with you, accuse you of wrongdoing and blame you for almost everything.

You can tell that this person has come in your life to shift your focus from God. When all this is happening, it drains your energy and occupies your mind to an extent that you cannot even pray. You will be focusing on defending yourself all the time.

When a man or woman is from God, they bring peace into your life. Even if there are problems, you can sit down to discuss them. There are no pointing fingers or raising of voices. Instead, the person takes things into prayer and waits on God to make decisions.

Doesn’t that sound like a wonderful kind of person to be around? If you wait on God and be patient, you will receive what you have been praying for.

7. Patient and Humble

Patience and humbleness go together. When you are not humble, you lack patience. The smallest of things trigger you and you react quickly. A humble man or woman can only come from God.

He or she is not pompous; doesn’t look down upon other people and is patient in all situations. A man who wants to rush things is a man on a mission.

Many women fall prey to unhumble man as they always threaten to leave because “women want me; I have money and I can get any woman anytime”. This is to make you feel like you need him more than he needs you.

Galatians 6:7 tells us that; “Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap.”

Do not be led into sin by a man who doesn’t want to obey God. Always be wary of the cunning ways of the evil and flee from it. God is faithful, He always fulfils our needs.

8. Dreams of Good

Whenever you dream about this person, the dreams are good and bring peace to you. This is an indication that everything is in place – but keep praying in the process.

Dreams say a lot about our spiritual lives. God sends us dreams to warn us about dangers that are ahead of us.

Let’s say every time you dream of this man, he is fighting with you, unfaithful or you wake up with worry and fear, this is not good. Would you think that this is the man for you? Even if you are not sure what these dreams mean, you clearly can tell there is nothing good in them.

Because of the importance of dreams in a Christian’s life, the Dreams Decoded course was designed by the grace of God. This is a great way any Christian can learn how to interpret dreams in a biblical way, and through the power of the Holy Spirit.

9. Self-control

Self-control is a fruit of the spirit and perhaps why it ties with patience. It is easy to fail to have self-control when in a relationship. That is why it is important to have a relationship with God, for He will provide the strength.

A man or even woman God has for you will encourage self-control. There will be no occasion where the person fuels fire into committing fornication, but instead is willing to wait until the time is right.

There is no pressurizing, no persuading or unwillingness to commit if he or she does not first test drive the “car”.

Such a genuine person with this kind of virtue only comes from God.

10. Similar Beliefs and Values

The Christian faith should be the foundation which any relationship builds upon. Why? Because everything else such as values and beliefs is dependent on your faith.

How great would it feel sharing ideas, raising kids in the same way and having agreements on important matters in life?

This shows compatibility – being able to coexist and understand each other on a deeper level, with no clashes on faith, family, beliefs etc.  That is the kind of relationship you want to entertain.

I believe God is sending you this person your way – the person that will understand, love and pray with you!

But while you are in the waiting season, it is important to prepare and gain knowledge on godly dating and marriage. The Marriage Unleashed course looks at the spiritual part of your life, praying effectively for the right person and MORE!

   Generational Curses – Identify and Break Them

By hearing the words “generational curses”, you might be wondering what they are and how they come about.

As the name suggests, generational curses are curses that are passed on from generation to generation in a family. This then creates a bad pattern that allows generations to suffer from the same curse.                       

How do generational curses come about?

Family plays a big role on who we are and how our lives will be shaped from infancy. We all have a foundation that was laid for us by our parents and all the way to great grandparents. Whatever foundation they laid is what comes to affect our lives today in a positive or negative way. Generational curses are acquired when a foundation that is not from God is laid.

Our great grandparents might have bowed down to other gods, consulted with spirit mediums or even had shrines. As they consulted, they were doing it for generations to come. If these curses are not broken, no matter what the family does, they will need to go through deliverance to break them.

Many families find themselves going in circles in life, and not moving forward. With lack of knowledge, they blame other aspects of life and end up giving up.

Have you noticed a family dealing with a specific curse such as untimely death or poverty? This goes from generation to generation until it is broken by the grace of God.

Deuteronomy 5:9 says, “You shall not bow down to them or worship them, for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me”.

When parents or even grandparents perform rituals, go to witch doctors etc., it affects the children even if they were not a part of it.

As a Christian, you must be the one to stand in the gap to break these curses that were brought upon your family. Be the spokesperson on behalf of your entire generation!

Signs of generational curses in your life

 I often hear people say that jobs are scarce, everyone is going through tough times, businesses are not doing well and every other problem you can mention.

However, you may notice that others find jobs to be plenty, times are good, and business is going well. Why? Because there is no spiritual gate holding this person back.

When you see that life is tough no matter how much you push, you need to go back to the source – Jesus Christ. Create for yourself a prayer alter, kneel down and pray to God for mercy.

Here are some signs that point towards a curse:

  • Sickness
  • Unemployment
  • Poverty
  • Stagnation
  • Prostitution
  • Stealing
  • Murdering
  • Marital Delay
  • Backwardness
  • Failure
  • Confusion
  • Premature Death

1. Sickness

In your family, you experience a certain sickness that is said to have been bothering other family members that have long departed. Sicknesses such as high blood pressure, blindness and continuous headaches can be generational curses.

 A sister in Christ shared this testimony:

“My mom had epilepsy and in her family. There were people who had it and they used to say that it was normal in their family.

She got divorced because she could not walk, and our dad married again.

We used to work in a quarry in order for us to get school fees. One day I decided to be a cover for my family and break the curse.

I received a lot of spiritual attacks and nobody in my family understood what I was going through until I became a conqueror. My mom was healed and I glorify God every day and thank Him for opening my eyes. Glory be to his name, Amen!”

Our God is a wonderful God indeed. If you stand in the gap for your family, like our sister did, He will hear your cry for help and deliver you.

2. Unemployment

You may notice a pattern where your grandfather’s generation never used to get employment, your father’s generation struggled with the same, and your generation are struggling to get employed.

This is clearly a generational affair that is hurting the finances and opportunities of generations to come.

Unemployment brings about frustration, depression, sinful thoughts and jealousy. If that curse is not broken, one may end up taking the wrong route in life.

Not all unemployment is generational curse related. Some families practice laziness, and do not want to labor in order to have food on the table. It is just a pattern in the family that has followed generations to come.

3. Poverty

In most cases, poverty can lead to sin. No matter how hard a family works, poverty still lingers. None of the family members can take the family out of poverty. This is how stealing, prostitution and consulting with spiritualists among other things becomes tempting.

This then brings in many other spirits while trying to deal with poverty. Desperation becomes the cornerstone of everyday life.

4. Stagnation

When one works hard but there is nothing to show for it, this indicates a generational curse. There is lack of progress, and this problem visits the entire past and future generations to come. How can one work so hard and remain in the same place?

Stagnation is very painful because one can put in effort at work, school or business, yet when it’s time to harvest, nothing will come out of it.

5. Prostitution

Some women who are in prostitution do so not out of will, but because a curse may be at play. They try to resist the temptation and maybe get employment, but find themselves back in prostitution. If they had to look at their background, they would find that in their family, some family members may have been involved in prostitution as well.

I have listened to stories of women who are or have been into prostitution. Most of them do not really know how they ended up in this world. They mention that they feel under a spell because no matter how much they try to resist it, some force would be pushing them.

Some even say that when they want to stop, they would have more men approaching them offering large sums of money. They would eventually be tempted by the money and go back to their old ways.

This is a stubborn spirit that works hand-in-hand with the anti-marriage spirit. Even if they find someone to marry, that urge to go back into prostitution still lingers and they end up going back. The result is that marriage not working out.

6. Stealing

In some communities, thieves come from one specific family. As ironic as it sounds, they are popularised for their tricks and schemes whenever it is time to steal within the community.

When we were growing up, there was a family that had four boys and a girl. The boys started displaying a character of stealing at a very early age. They would steal pens from classmates at school, toys from other kids during playtime and money at home.

The neighbour’s thought it was just a passing phase, and that they were just being naughty. Little did they know that these children would grow up to be the entire community’s nightmare. During their teenage years, they started stealing from their neighbour’s’ homes.

They all dropped out of school without any reason and began to do serious robberies. When the two older ones broke into the local supermarket and were caught, it came out from the police records that their father was a seasoned thief before he died. All the uncles in their father’s family were also thieves and their grandfather too.

Is that not evident that this family was under a generational curse? How can everyone in the same family behave the same? It means that the previous generations did something that brought this curse into the family.

If this curse was not broken in this family, there is no way these young men were going to have children of a different behavior. God intervened in this family through their mother finding God. The grandchildren started to go to school, and they became responsible adults.

7. Murdering

If someone in the previous generations murdered a person and got under a curse, that curse can affect many generations to come. Some people become like someone under a spell when it’s time to kill. Later, they cannot recollect the reasoning behind the murder.

This curse must be broken through serious warfare as the enemy doesn’t easily give up. His mission is to kill, steal and to destroy, so where killing happens is where he dwells most.

John 10:10 says “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life and have it to the full.”

God gives us life and there is no one who has the authority to take it. I pray you stand on this assurance today!

8. Marital Delay

If someone is under a generational curse, they either get married very late or they do not get married at all. If it happens that they get married, the marriage does not last long.

Divorce becomes a reality and as you know, there is much shame and guilt that comes with that.

That’s why I have created the Marriage Unleashed course to understand generational curses, delay and the stubborn anti-marriage spirit.

May it be a blessing to you, in the name of Jesus.

9. Backwardness

This is another sign of a generational curse. It may be that everything that you do in life shows no progress at all. You may have started at the same position with others, but your progress is at the same level as you started.

This lack of progress and non-achievement is frustrating, and it is only God that can break you free from this!

10. Failure

Failure goes hand-in-hand with backwardness and stagnation. What is heartbreaking about this curse is that you can work hard, push yourself and even have dreams of the future, but failure waits at the corner.

This sort of behavior may be constantly occurring in the family. There may be nobody that has succeeded in life and the same can be said of the younger generation.

You must be the one to break it by the grace of God.

11. Confusion

Decision making is the biggest challenge with this type of curse. Whenever you must decide on big matters or issues, you have serious confusion. You end up making the wrong decisions and regret it in the future.

What seems straight forward for one person, is the complete opposite for someone suffering from this. Confusion often comes with failure because the enemy will push you into doing the wrong thing.

For example, imagine taking out a loan for a business that fails after its first few months? Not only do you have to deal with the confusion, but you have also failed at a goal you had for yourself.

12. Premature Death

In a family, members pass away in the same month every year. That is not a normal occurrence. It is unfortunate to see family members passing away for no known cause and leaving behind vulnerable children in the process.

That is the plan of the enemy. To remove destinies of people before they can even become something in life.

This article goes into the spiritual meaning of death in a dream.

One sure thing is our God is just, and I pray that God uses you to be the pillar for your family, in Jesus’ name!

 How can generational curses be broken?

Generational curses are in the bloodline and through the blood of Jesus they can be broken. The main step to take towards the breaking of a generational curses is self-deliverance.

Romans 10:9 says, “If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord”, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

By declaring that Jesus is Lord, you have opened a communication channel between yourself and Him. You are a step into your deliverance.

Follow the below steps:

1. List all the generational curses that you know of in the family. As you pray, name them one by one.

You can pray the following prayer: “Father God, I come before you as I stand for my family. I know that you have chosen me to be the one to stand for them to break this/these generational curses. I cancel all these curses (mention them) in the family in the name of Jesus.”

2. Fast and Pray: during fasting and praying, focus on generational curses and asking God to help you. I would advise to go on a terminator type of fasting – the Esther fast.

It’s also important to have prayer points and not just using mere words during your fast. The website is full of resources in helping you.

3. Confess your sins and repent on behalf of the previous generations.

You can say, “I confess all the sins of all the past generations and repent on their behalf. I know some of the sins were committed because of lack of knowledge. I humble myself before you my Lord and ask that you forgive them their sins.”

4. Reject and renounce any generational curse(s) operating in your life.

Say the following with confidence: “Any generational curse operating in my life be broken in Jesus’ name. Any forces behind these curses that are standing on the way of my deliverance be destroyed. I reject and renounce all of them, from today they are not part of me, in the mighty name of Jesus!”

5. Disconnect and disassociate yourself from these curses.

Pray the following: “I disconnect myself and my family from these generational curses. I disassociate myself from any forces that are affecting me because of sins of my previous generation. Any sin that was committed before I was born, let it stay in the past in the name of Jesus.”

6. Speak life and declare only good things.

You can declare that “I speak life upon me and my family. Only good things and blessings shall follow us, we shall always bear good news amongst us in Jesus’ name.”

7. Mend your ways with God.

Say the following prayer: “Father, I know that my ways are not perfect. Today I ask you to lead me along the right path, be my feet in Jesus’ name. Whatever wrong turns that I was taking that were not pleasing to you, I leave them behind me in the name of Jesus.”

When these generational curses have been broken, you will experience a different life. Things will start falling in place and you will know that God is good.

I pray for you and your family. For more grace, knowledge and prosperity, in Jesus’ name.

Stay blessed!
