DO NOT COMPROMISE YOUR WALK WITH GOD
In the novel WITH THIS RING, I wrote:
Men still approached Ibie for a relationship but she had not found a man worth having among them. Presently, a director of the company she worked with, a French man had been showing interest in her. He would like to marry her but she had told him she was not interested because they were not of the same faith. She would not compromise her walk with God just to get married. That would be a recipe for disaster. She needed a certain type of man: good and godly.
Ibie was already in her forties. She could have chosen to lower her standard, compromise her faith, marry the man, and go to church to give it as a testimony. But she did not. Doing that would have been wrong.
In Galatians 1:6-7, Paul said, “I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel…” (This will not happen to you in Jesus name)
“If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.”
But Daniel resolved that he would not defile himself with the king’s food, or with the wine that he drank. Therefore he asked the chief of the eunuchs to allow him not to defile himself.
I pray this year brings everything that will make you smile in Jesus name.
