I must admit, its slightly controversial discussing this the Lord has been weighing on my heart that there is a message here for someone, somewhere, who really needs to hear it, know it and receive it. You are about to get a birds eye view of the reality of choosing to follow in Godly obedience, the benefit & the cost of not following.
There was a time, when never on Friday or Saturday night, would I be at home, not on a date or out at some “In Spot” whooping it up and having a good time. That life is so far in my past, I don’t miss it one bit, although it still calls out for me from time to time. My answer is always the same; “I just don’t need you any more, you have nothing to offer me & I don’t want to associate with you any longer!” It’s just a fact, I have no desire for that in my life and have not for many years now. Why have I abstained from that type of recreation, lifestyle and social interactions; because it doesn’t line up with what God has groomed me for, its contrary in nature to what I stand for and the experiences that are to be had in those environments are the ones that lead to hard life lessons. Seed sewn in good soil yields excellent fruit, seed sewn in the swamp yields fruit of another type, toxic and unedifying.
Here it was one of these nights and I was fixing to work on a project; I saw a picture of a lovely necklace which grabbed me instantly, it’s composition & form were so lovely. It had a special pendant that read, “He held her like a seashell and listened to her heart”. Just so whimsical, feminine & lovely! I knew at first glance that I could replicate this piece! Fast forward ahead, as I was making & assembling this necklace, I found myself having a discussion with the Lord, to which I exclaimed; “Well, Lord?, What about the “Boaz” you promised me, where is he?!…When are you going to send me The man that I deserve?”…Like a download into my spirit, heart & mind; Father spoke to me in such a pause & with these words…“I will not do that, He will treat you BETTER than you deserve, because that’s what I want for you & how MUCH I love you!” I trembled in delight, immediately I became re-invested, entranced, excited and heart fixed on what God gave to me in that moment.
If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. ( Isaiah 41:3)
“I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances… I have learned the secret of being content in
any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do
everything through him who gives me strength” (Philippians 4:11-13).
With this nugget, as a token of my extensive wait, He also began to reveal to me the flip side. What is happening to those in their lives, who are NOT WAITING UPON HIM, who are settling, selling out and/or dispersing their blessings before they are ever received. In an effort to NOT BE ALONE, many have found themselves in UnGodly relationships where they are more alone in the same room with another person than they would be had they stayed single. Many more are taking on demonic spirits of those whom they have coupled with, they are becoming overthrown by the demonic influences that haunt their mate. It’s not fiction BUT fact, any copulation done outside the marriage Blessing of God’s ordination IS NOT PROTECTED. Therefore, when two become one, you get all their baggage (spiritually & sometimes, physically too) Like a person wearing two different shoes or two totally different fragments forcibly merged together, there is no harmony, no real peace. To some degree, all of these things are happening to those who decide to assert their decision over Gods decision, thinking they can bypass Gods rules in conduct and precept. A person that treats you well is base minimum, status quo. God demands and insures that if you Trust and wait on Him you will not have to compromise your morals or your requirements in a Mate!
Pre-Marital Sex is SIN. Sex outside of marriage (i.e. “fornication” in the King James Version, “sexual immorality” in the NIV, pick your translation) is not something God glosses over in the Bible. “Fornication,” “fornications,” and “fornicators,” are all described as sin at least 43 times in the Bible, stretching from the Old Testament all the way to the end of the New Testament in the book of Revelation, where it is mentioned 12 times in 10 different scriptures (Rev. 2:14, 20, 21; 9:21, 14:8; 17:2, 4; 18:3, 9; 19:2).

The way demons gain access into a believer’s life, is through open doors. There are certain sins and things we can do that will defile us (make us unclean). For example, having unholy sex can create unholy soul ties, which serve as demonic bridges, and can pass bondages from one person to another. Another example is being bitter or unforgiving; both those are closely related and can defile a person (Hebrews 12:15). http://www.greatbiblestudy.com/deliverance_believers.php
If you are seeking God’s best for your life, it requires a sacrifice. It’s really not a sacrifice when you realize what you are being protected from! If you are tired of being treated wrong, begin by treating yourself right, turn to the Lord for His guidance, His protection and His selection for your life. No one knows better what the desires of your heart truly are than the one who formed it, who set the Heavens in motion and knew you as you were being knit together in the womb. He knows every thought, every need and can serve all of them if you only submit, believe and wait upon Him.
