FINANCE IS REQUIRED FOR ROMANCE.
I LOVE YOU THE WAY YOU ARE DOES NOT IMPLY THAT I WANT YOU TO STAY THE WAY YOU ARE.
I LOVE YOU AS YOU ARE IS A STATEMENT OF FAITH, IF I SUFFER WITH THIS GUY FOR 3-5 YEARS, HIS STORY SHOULD CHANGE, BUT IF YOUR LIFE REFUSES TO CHANGE AFTER 3-5 YEARS, THE STORY WILL CHANGE.
FINANCE IS REQUIRED FOR ROMANCE
WHEN LIFE’S RESPONSIBILITIES ATTACK YOU, YOU NEED FUNDS TO FUND THE FUN.
Emmanuel Olumide, Pastor
I was born again as a teenager, entered the ministry as a teenager, and by the age of 21 I was already ordained as a pastor and doing ministry. In 1997, I married, and I became one of the worst mistakes I’ve ever made.
Now, marriage was not the mistake; however, marrying as a poor man was. I slipped into the trap of ”I love you the way you are”, and I suddenly realized that just because I love you the way you are does not mean I want you to stay that way.
I love you the way you are is a statement of faith; if I suffer with this guy for 3-5 years, his story should change; if your life refuses to change after 3-5 years, the tale will change. I see that the way I love you is not the solution because there is no romance without finance. I had to learn by doing.
I impregnated my wife in 1998, which was error number two: a poor man impregnating a woman. Then I discovered that when life’s responsibilities strike you, you need money to have fun, and in my aggravation, I fell into a profound depression in 1998.
You have no idea what it is like to be a father who cannot pay his rent; you have no idea what it is like to see the pregnancy grow and your aggravation grow because there is no money everywhere.
The issue was not a lack of funds; rather, despite the fact that I required funds, there was no one who could assist me. In my frustration, I called out to God, telling Him, “God, I’m tired.” , I have served you my entire life, God, this is not as it should be, this is not what your Word taught. God asked me right there, “Are you ready to be free?” When I said yes, God took me on a journey.
One of the things that God began to help me see is that many of the things that we believe in the Church are based on what someone said, not on what we have discovered in God, and this was an issue for me.
As God’s children, we must understand that God wants us to be enabled, that God wants us to be empowered in various aspects of life as his children.
But God will want us to be empowered in three areas since these three key areas affect all the other cardinal areas of our lives.
God desires for you to be spiritually powerful. So that as a child of God, you will understand who you are in Christ, the price that Jesus has paid, and the authority that is accessible to you so that you might walk in dominion and the realm that God desires you to walk in.
The Bible declares that Those who know their God will be powerful and will do exploits; those who do not know their God will be weak and will be exploited. So God wants you to be spiritually empowered so that you don’t have to wait in line to connect with your God since God doesn’t have grandchildren.
You must understand that when you enter the Kingdom, He does not want you to be an echo of those who have gone before you, but rather to have a firsthand relationship with Him. So that He can raise you to be His representative.
