Whenever God is leading or directing you to do something, please don't snub it, don't procastinate! If you hear jump, please jump! If you hear stop! Please stop! Delayed obedience is not total obedience.
It was mid-term break but we couldn't go home because it was just for 2 days and home was far, so I and my roommate stayed back in school with some other students.
Since exams was at the corner she suggested we go to class and read, at least make good use of the break😃 but I just didn't feel like leaving the house so I suggested we read I the room, she persisted and I just reluctantly agreed.
I decided to hurriedly take my bath since she was prepared already but a voice kept saying don't go! God forgive my disobedience I still followed. Just few minutes after we left, we met with robbers! Broad day light😥
Ah, I was so confused sef, they stood with guns demanding for my two weeks old phone, I refused o! I started telling her the gun is fake! Tried running back, two others held me, trying to collect my bag, punching me just to get what they wanted.
I decided to hand over the phone to them after the gun man hit the gun on my head! It was a terrible experience, we started shouting after they left, meanwhile some people watching from their balconies came to ask what kind of phone, as in you stood there all this while!
People sha, they could have shouted at least😏I am thankful God still saved me, I tried tracking the phone since it was new, my roommate's phone was also new too but to no avail, my parents adviced me to let it go! This is what disobedience can cause!
Some of us feel the urge to pray or speak in tongues yet we will procrastinate, you hear God saying pray for this person and you just snub it, you don't know if they are in danger! When God leads you to do anything, please stop thinking, just obey! Just obey!
Delayed obedience can cause so much harm, when God says stop, there might be danger ahead, when he says go now, there might be favor somewhere! When you hear God speak just OBEY🔥

Do you have an experience of how obeying God saved you? Please share!

If you are in a godly relationship, tell us something you are grateful for in your partner or relationship. Let's share godly relationship goals.

Mine: We read books together, he basically encourages me because that guy reads😩

Also, I have learnt how to fast, like fast!
...and yes, I am better than I was in all aspects of my life.

There's more! We get our intimacy when we spend time talking about Jesus. Its beautiful😭
No sex! No smooching! No kissing! Just God's presence, two people growing into God's purpose for them.

If you are serving God because you want to get something from Him, one day you will wake up angry because you may not get all you desire but when you just love and trust Him, you may not get all you desire but you will get all that's best for you.
We serve God because its our life, we owe everything to Him. So just like the three Hebrew boys, Esther, Daniel, Apostle Paul etc.

It is not about how much God can give to them but how committed and sold out they are to God.
God wants us to come to that place where our confession becomes "If I perish I perish! I cannot choose my life or my desires above you Lord. I love you with everything".

This is the kind of growth God is calling us into🔥

Dear Christian,
The flesh is self exalting, it is self demanding! When the spirit says PRAY, the flesh will say you need to rest. When the spirit says BE CALM, the flesh will give you a hundred reasons not to! If you want to serve God, you must die to FLESH🙇
The flesh always wants to show how much it has achieved for God with small pride.
It wants to be able to show emotions, do whatever it wants without self control.
It doesn't even want corrections from God or the scriptures.
The flesh doesn't want to stay without food so if you want to satisfy it's desires, you cannot fast. You can stay for a whole busy day without eating but come and fast na, you will start shaking😂

I was having a conversation with one Unku who was showing some Interest me and I noticed how he was trying to mention God into everything he was saying, yes he wanted me to see how he knows God but I was not fast to conclude o!
I gave it time, I listened to all he had to say and I could see that he was trying to use the fact I was a child of God to make me feel comfortable but it wasn't so long before I could hear him condemn the standard of purity we are keep as believers!
Oh really, the same brother who sounded so God-loving could say there's no need to waiting until marriage if your family already knows about the relationship! God help us.

I was at a wedding yesterday, but I wasn't fast to say the God When anthem, not because it wasn't a beautiful wedding or because I don't anticipate marriage but because I know there is so much requirements for a GOD KIND OF MARRIAGE.
We all want to be loved by somebody's son or daughter, we want a beautiful house, we want to be loved and receive beautiful gifts from our partners. I want that too but wait fes, is that all?
What God has planned for us is way more than gifts, houses, flowers or even vacations. What God has planned is a home that will glorify Him.

VIRGINITY VS SEXUAL PURITY

I made the decision to remain a virgin from my childhood and that no matter what happened I vowed to keep my virginity.
Growing up, I got involved in several impure acts but I bothered less since I was able to keep my virginity INTACT, I was more concerned with remaining a virgin and not being sexually pure, technically I was a virgin but sexually DEFILED!
I struggled with remaining pure, from what I saw in the media to what I watched in the movies, everything around me was enough to keep me impure.
