Something happened recently in my life that caused me to go back in time to this evergreen lesson God gave to me at a time when I was a “hot cake” during my NYSC YEAR.
I had this guy who was toasting me then…he was all like “I like you, I like the way you are a Christian and you will really help me in my walk with Christ etc etc.
I used to tell him no to his question to be his girlfriend but at the same time, I was enjoying the attention and how he used to compliment me and make me laugh etc etc,
One time I think I was visiting him with some fellow corper friends at his house when something dawned on me that erm, sister if you are not careful you will fall for this guy oh. I said ‘odenshi’ we are just friends.
My deliverance from deceiving myself happened one day when I was at NCCF conference. There at the camp, I am not even sure if I was asking the Lord questions about this guy but here is what happened… suddenly God began to speak to me by asking me a question.
The questions began like this:
1: When you first gave your life to me, what stopped you from continuing and following after me?
My answer: a guy. (the first time I ran to Christ after having a near rape experience I had fallen off the wagon by meeting another guy who became my boyfriend).
Second question: The second time you gave your life to me what stopped you then?
My answer: A guy.
(This happened while I was in the relationship with the second guy. There was a crusade at my school where I repented to the Lord and came back to him but couldn’t sustain it because… “sex with my boyfriend…
THIRD QUESTION: The last time you gave your life to me, what tripped you up then?
My answer: A guy.
And He said, THIS IS THE SAME TRAP; DIFFERENT GUY.
As soon as the Lord said that to me, my eyes were opened. What! Wow! So this is what satan has been doing in my life for years. He knew my weakness (at at then) was a need to be loved and liked by men (guys) and he knew how to get me in this way by bringing guys who would do His bidding my way.
I said Lord I see it!!!!
He said something else to me that opened my eyes but that would be the subject of another blog post. At this time in my life, God was really teaching me A LOT. I had a very HIGH intimacy with the Lord and I was at a threshold of finally entering into becoming the woman God had called me to be before the beginning of time. And then this guy shows up, sent by the enemy to try and derail me from what God was trying to do with my life. And it was a very specific target aimed at me, using the weapon of something I had not been able to resist in the past which was guys!!!
When God showed me this revelation, after I got back home from the conference, whereas I would love to sit gisting with this guy before, i started avoiding him. I started looking for ways to not see him and I think God must have heard my heart cry because soon after this revelation I got a PPA job at a firm that made me start going to work in the morning and coming back at night. I nor dey house if anybody knock my door and this worked JUST FINE for causing whatever feelings were left in my heart to fizzle out on their own.
Minus the feelings, I was also at a point where I really wanted to fulfil my destiny and also do God’s will for my life. I was at the point where I was hungry to become and do God’s will and His purpose for my life. I have been faced time and time again with this lust game; faced with “who will I chose?” This counterfeit guy satan has sent to me or God’s will and purpose for my life? So far, it has been five years running and I love to say that God has helped me; I have chosen His will for my life!
Wow! Thank you Jesus!
My walk out of choosing the wrong guys is a TESTIMONY!! Once upon a time I used to fall like a pack of cards though I loved Jesus and desired to please Him. I just didn’t know how to escape the temptation of guys and sex. It was a prayer point during my year 2013 fast at a time and I am glad to say that GOD HEARD ME.If you truly desire to do God's will, to stay chaste and please Him, then He would always make a way of escape FOR YOU!

Now your turn:
Who is that guy that you are currently struggling with and you don’t know its a trap sent from the pit of hell to derail you from your destiny?
Look at me today with two ministries, one NGO, a business for authors, more than 13 books and more upcoming, have travelled to Nations and would still travel to Nations to spread God’s word, a VOICE for the Lord, etc… did I know that I had all these seed in me when I was struggling with lust? Did I know that heaven had planned to use my life for God’s glory? Did I know the lives connected to mine? All these were what satan was trying to cut off by offering me just one trap: A GUY.
If you are a man reading this, it may be a girl for you… whatever… its the SAME TRAP, DIFFERENT PERSON and you have to pass the test. Show yourself approved for and of what God wants to place in your hands, to steward the destinies of others. Show yourself worth it by choosing the will of God for your life over lust.
Heaven and your future would thank you for it.
It’s as much a prayer for the grace to do so as well as it is a decision to decide to chose God’s will and His purpose for your life. One revelation set me on the right track with God. I could see my choices and what they would mean for my future and destiny. This is the same revelation I have shared with you today.
What will you do with it?
Heavenly Father I pray for as many struggling with knowing your will about that potential spouse they are considering being in a relationship with. I pray that you will make your will clear to them and help them to rise above their weakness and chose your will in Jesus name, amen.
