21 strategies to overcome marital delay


The only cure for ignorance is rigorous studies. You must learn to read voraciously. The Bible says, “Also, that the soul be without knowledge, it is not good” (Pro. 19:2). I believe one of the reasons the Bible says it is not good for a soul to be without knowledge is because “through knowledge shall the just be delivered” (Pro. 11:9). The way out is not by praying for knowledge; we can only defeat ignorance by embracing the responsibility to study. Get good materials, I know it is expensive but it will yield priceless dividends tomorrow. 2Tim. 2:15 says,

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God a workman that need not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth”.

A wise man said if you think education is expensive, then try ignorance. Ignorance is more costly. Someone rightly said there are two things that change your life in a period of five years, namely; the books you read and the people you come across. That means that we are bound to remain the same or be at the same level without reading. Daniel in the Bible was talking about how he discovered God’s plan for his people and the period of time their captivity ought to last said, “I, Daniel understood by books,” See Daniel Chapter 9 verse 2. Readers will always become leaders. Today a reader, tomorrow a leader. Reading helps you to become creative; it broadens your mind and perceptions. The reason why people hate those who are not informed is because someone who knows how to read but does not read is not better than an illiterate. You must stop wasting time on television programmes, unnecessary visitations, etc. It is time to study; it is time to add value to your life. Requisite knowledge is the key to acceleration in life.


Reading is one of the best ways to add value or colour to your life. You can overcome delay, as you make it your duty to acquire relevant information daily. There is no problem without solution, and those solutions are usually found in books written by people who have the relevant knowledge and experience in such areas of life. Are you trusting God to get married soon? May I ask you how many books you have read, especially on how to make yourself findable or how to position yourself for the right partner? Without any doubt, there are so many people who are experts in this area and I am privileged to be one of them. By God’s grace, I have written several books that can be of tremendous help to you. There are those who are married today, but their marriage is full of abuse, violence, calamities and misunderstandings simply because of their ignorance. They are not aware of what to do to get the devil out of their marriage. I once told couples that the number one problem of marriages today is not lack of communication or lack of sex but ignorance. People are not ready to read. Anyone who truly desires to make success out of their marriage must acquire knowledge on how to make their marriage work.

The truth is that your marriage will not work by itself. You must make it work by yourself. What we do in marriage is always a function of our understanding, which is also based on our knowledge. There is no doubt that knowledge is power. For everyone who desires to overcome marital delay, we must develop unusual love, hunger and insatiable appetite for books. Buy books and read them. Buy CDs, attend seminars, conferences or go for counselling. It is well with you in Jesus name.

Two years after getting married, your spouse told you that he/she was informed when he/she was single that medically she could not conceive or impregnate a lady. What would you do?
