Beyond His Will
Christiana rushed to Johnson’s friend house, Johnson friend was not at home, she met his wife bimbo, the one that called her a maid on their first visit. Bimbo came to meet her at the gate and refused to let her in
Yes, what do you want? Bimbo asked feeling irritated with Christiana presence
Am sorry for disturbing you, I came to see brother Femi?
He travelled, come back next month, she said and turn to leave
Christiana held her leg and knelt down, pls sister bimbo, don’t do this to me, I know I have wrong you, don’t pay Me back with my own coin, pls my home is on fire, I need your help, Christiana begged her crying, pls help me, pls, she wept

I thought you will change thugs around before his wedding day, but I was wrong, I guess second chance are not made for people like me,because I misuse the precious opportunity you gave me,. She started praying and crying,
After an hour, her phone was ringing, she checked the caller, it was ola again
She ignored it and continue crying. Did she want to tell me how happy Johnson is,or how beautiful his wife his? She thought within herself and bursted into a big cry
Ola keep on calling, but Christiana refused to pick his call. Suddenly a new message entered
She checked the SMS,it was from ola again, she wanted to throw the phone away when her eye caught the message body. She quickly opened the message and read it

Beyond His Will
It all started in my office that fateful day, Deborah came to my office and asked me what happened to me, why am I always moody?
Deborah it a long story.. Johnson said bowing down his head
I will love to listen sir, Christiana adjusted her sit
I got married to Christiana eleven months ago, I love and cherish her, I didn’t just go for her because of love, I went for her because God is also in approval of our union. We got married and everything change, she makes my life difficult, I tried to understand her everyday, but it seems like an impossible mission for me, I satisfy her with everything she want, Christiana will still complain, she fought with all my friends, and with everybody around me, Christiana is making my life unbearable.
Sir, what have you done about it? What step have you take to help your wife realized her mistakes?
I have talked to her several time.
I don’t understand, what else should I do?
Sir, marriage is beyond getting married to the right person, is beyond having a big weddings, it beyond loving your wife dearly, marriage is all about God walking with you in your marriage, directing your every step, you might get marriage to the right person and still regret, Adam got married to the bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh Eve, it is through this same Eve, Adam lost his relationship with God. Ananias and Sapphira were husband and wife, but the foolishness of Sapphira to caution her husband when Satan want to make them lie to the holy spirit cost them their lives, marriage is all about calling God to every of your discussions, matters, steps, thought, because Satan know how powerful marriage is, he won’t hesitate to come into a marriage if a small door is open to destroy it. Sir, am not saying what aunty Christiana is doing is right, but as the head of the house, have you taken the matter to God? did you for once prayed for her? Satan operated through peter, God favorite disciple to discouraged Jesus from doing his redemption assignment, Jesus knew it was not peter talking but Satan was operating through him, He rebuked Satan Mathew 16: 21-22, this mean Satan can use or operate through anybody to destroy a great destiny. You have a great mission with your wife, do you expect Satan to sit and watch while you make explore? No! he will definitely look for someone to use, I must say your wife might not notice this schemes of Satan to use her destroy her marriage, but as the head you shouldn’t have sleep spiritually too, go to God, pray for her, am sure there are lot of things that are yet to be reveal to you by God. Don’t get angry with your wife when you are also at fault by sleeping sprirutually as the head of the house, wake up sir
Deborah, that true, have slept.. He breathed out and stood up from his sit, what should I do now?
I suggests you go back to God, He is the one that knows all things
Thank you so much Deborah, I really appreciate
You are welcome sir
Deborah left his office
Back to the present
After my discussion with Deborah, I made up my mind to take my marriage problems to God. To wake up from my sleep and save my marriage, I made up my mind to go to the mountain of mercy, in ekiti state without telling you nor Deborah because I want to be alone with my God. I came home to pack my things and headed straight to mountain of mercy. I got there in the evening, find a good corner and started praying. I asked God for the forgiveness of my sin before I started fasting and praying for many month, alot was reveal to me by God, Johnson paused while Christiana listen attentively
Johnson laid down on the mountain praying. God save my marriage, pls remould my wife and my marriage. Come and be the sailors of our marriage ship, come and be the driver of our journey car. Pls Lord. After praying for many hours. The holy spirit ministered to him
I can’t save your marriage, you only have the power to save or destroyed your marriage
By selecting the type of problems you bring to me, most of the things you need Me for, you think you can handl them yourself, this made you to be the driver of your marriage
But, I asked you before going into this marriage and you gave your consent
I give consent, I don’t give grace, wisdom, power to be able to maintain and stay in my will unless you asked for it, Mathew 7:7 ask and it shall be given. When you don’t ask, I don’t give, I told you Christiana is my will for you, but do you ask me to give you wisdom to walk with her? Do you ask me to give you the grace to be the head of the house? Do you ask for the power that will make your marriage untouchable for the devil? Do you ask me to walk with you? Do you ask me to turn your weakness to strength? No! You didn’t. There is a lot beyond my will! Johnson your marriage was like that because you thought you only need me at the beginning, not daily basis.
Oh lord pls forgive me, there is indeed a lot beyond your will. I do not know I need wisdom, grace, power. Pls lord help me now before we drowned. Johnson cried and prayed.
Back to the present
Johnson looked at Christiana, she looked away trying to avoid his gaze, Johnson cleared his throat and continue his story
After praying for two months, God finally answered my prayer. I wanted to come home and embrace my new marriage, but God told me to stayed back. I asked him why? He didn’t reply until yesterday. A lot happened When he told me to stay back.
He rubbed his two palm together
After a long stressful day without eating, but fasting and praying, Johnson went to the canteen to break his fast in the evening. He met a young man who looks happy and vibrant, the man brought some food and didn’t have money to pay, the woman was shouting at him when Johnson came to his rescue
What happened? Johnson asked
He came to buy food here, and he was telling me he forgot his money in his car, that is how they always come here and lie, the woman explained angrily
I actually forgot my wallet in my car, I told her to take her food while I go bring my Wallet to be sure that am not running away, but she refused
How much is the fees ma
Johnson brought out his wallet and paid for the man, the man was so happy. He appreciate him and left. Johnson finished eating and left the canteen, he was about to climb the mountain when someone called him, he looked back and saw the man he helped earlier
Thank so much for saving me earlier
You are welcome sir,
Have been waiting for you to walk pass since, I actually came to the mountain to thank God for the contract I won last week. I want to be on my way now, but I want to ive you something sir, he opened his car and brought out an invitation and #2000
Sir, take this for the money you spent earlier
No! Noo! That by gone.
Thank so much sir, if you don’t mind I would love you to be at my wedding, this is the invitation card. He gave him the card.
Alright, I will surely be there.
Thank you, the man entered his car and zoomed off
Johnson stood at the spot until the car was out of sight, he opened the card and checked it, Bassey john wed Chukudi Christiana
Chukudi was Christiana maiden name.
What! Johnson screamed! Creating attention as people looked at his direction
He sat on the floor and broke down in tears
Christiana is getting married? Just two month away from home! Johnson sat at the spot for three hours crying
Why God! You told me my mistakes and solution, why do you allowed Christiana to get married to another man? Why Lord! I promise to always pray for her, I promise to always invite you to our day to day activities, pls Lord. He cried so bitterly on the mountai
He wanted to go home, but God instruct him not to go, this made him cried more
Few weeks later, he received a letter from a young man, when he opened the letter, it was termination of marriage agreements. Johnson nearly fainted on seeing the letter, he laid down on the mountain for four days without eating or standing up, he was praying and crying.
God, pls save my marriage, pls Lord!
One month later, the young man that gave him the wedding invitation came to the mountain with his wife for Thanksgiving. They greeted Johnson and he was so surprise the wife was not his wife. They oy bears the same name, He was so happy. The next day God told him to check the letter he received very well. Johnson searched the dust bin and saw it. He carefully looked at the names and it was totally different from his name and Christiana names, he laughed out loud, making jest of himself.
He was so happy throughout his stays on the mountain, thanking God.
He was praying one evening when the holy spirit ministered
Johnson, the reason why I asked you not to go home is because I want to remould you, and equipped you with what you need to stay in my will, and what you need that is beyond my will. I have dine all that. You can go home now.
He was so happy, and scared as the same time, he didn’t know what he is going to meet at home. The next day, he packed his clothes and headed home
Back to present
Christiana couldn’t hold back tears, she cried so bitterly.
What about the divorce letter you send to me? She said while crying
I didn’t send any divorce letter, Johnson was shocked
Christiana was confused, she rushed to her bedroom and Johnson followed her. She was searching for the letter. Christiana searched under her bed and found the squeezed letter. She took it and looked at the name, it was totally different. The address was NO. 45 while Christiana address was NO 55. The same street but the number was different. Tears of joy rolled down from her eyes. Johnson drew her to himself and hugged him. The wedding invitation and the divorce letter remould our lifes, Johnson whispered to her.
They both cried in each other arm.
After much hugging and caring, Christiana cooked Johnson favorite food. He tasted the food and was so shocked
You cooked this?
Yes, for my king!
Thank my queen
They went out for a date to celebrate their new remould marriage!
Christiana woke up so early the next day, cooked for her husband when she left the kitchen, she found out Johnson had tidy up the whole house
Why would you do that? I don’t want any stress for you, Christiana said smiling
I just wanted to help my queen. They hugged each other and laughed
Christiana and Johnson visit bimbo and femi, they were so suorise as how Christiana respect and care for Johnson. Femi was forced to asked, pls what is the secret of this great change?
It a wedding invitation and a divorce letter, Christiana and Johnson chorus and laugh
Femi and bimbo was confused, I don’t understand, bimbo said.
Staying in His will is beyond His will, when you know what it take to stay in His Will, the result will go beyond your understanding. Our marriage is an examples of the result of knowing how to stay in HIS WILL, which is Beyond HIS WILL! Christiana said and hugged her husband
Thanks for reading
SO PEOPLE,WATS UR TAKE ON THE STORY………
