Thank you so much, Jennifer,
I once had a similar incident many years ago and it also caused a lot of emotional turmoil in my life. A lady who claimed that she was a prophetess prophesied over me that I was going to marry a specific lady who I had no feelings for. I simply did not love that woman. I did not even like her. I was so upset with God for expecting me to marry that woman. I was already in love with another woman (I am still happily married to her today). I just refused to marry the other woman but I felt so guilty and at the same time so disappointed in God for expecting me to marry the other woman. After a few years, another prophet of God convinced me that the prophecy that this prophetess gave me was false (I am so glad that I did not listen to that woman). After I accepted this fact I finally experienced peace in my heart about this incident and it never bothered me again.
There are a lot of false prophecies going out regarding marriage. We must be very careful when it comes to teachings and prophecies about marriage. We must marry the person that we have feelings for. We must marry a person because we are in love with that person. We must marry when we want to be married. It is as simple as this. This is God’s will for all of us.
Very few people are like Paul in this regard. Paul chose not to get married because he wanted to devote his life to the gospel of Christ. Yes, there were others as well but that is not the norm (in fact it is extremely rare) and definitely not something that God expected from those people. That was always a very strong desire in the hearts of those people and definitely not a problem for them.
