I want all the provisions that includes the blessings, high favour, help from God, opportunities, open doors, access to the supernatural, help from the Holy Spirit, tremendous wisdom because I understand that when all these things are present in my life, I’ll truly be a god and manifest God’s purpose for me in it’s fullest to his glory and THIS IS THE ONLY WAY, There’s no short cut. Everybody is different but for me it’ll always be, “If I can be a billionaire at 23, why wait till 40?” So anything that wants to please me now in exchange for shortchanging my destiny, I Dey run.
Everything has been going well, oh I have so much peace and happiness, my anxieties are submitted to God, I’m becoming a better version of myself because the provisions of Christ are for our good, changing and transforming us to his image. His image cannot be bad.
Either ways, temptation sha came. ahhhhhhhh brethren, temptation came oo but I thank God for spiritual capacity that I’ve been building because ahhhhh it came. Yes, I’m screaming!!! Temptation came for your girl. But temptation is not a sin, it is yielding to it that makes it a sin. God is not a stupid God and so to walk away from that I just kept on reminding myself of my journey of submission to God and doing what pleases him.
I just kept on speaking to my mind “God help me overcome, since this year, it’s been you first, no one was there, I want it to be that way, this is not going to make you happy, I’m not about to use you, dump you, and come back to you after few minutes of pleasure, I know you’re a faithful husband but what kind of wife would that make me” and if you know me, the one thing I can’t tolerate in a relationship is Cheating! At that point, I just said I’m not cheating on you God, after all, you’re my husband.
So yeah, I scaled through guys, things would have gone to ground zero in nano seconds. All my months of being intentional, down the drain but I scaled through with the help of God and then after that experience I started searching my bible more the gain a deeper understanding of submission to God and oh Paul, Paul saw all of these coming.
Colossians 2- 11; 13; 20
11In him you were also circumcised with a circumcision not performed by human hands. Your whole self ruled by the flesh was put off when you were circumcised by Christ,
13When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you d alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins,
20Since you died with Christ to the elemental spiritual forces of this world, why, as though you still belonged to the world, do you submit to its rules:
Colossians 3: 2-7
2Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. 3For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. 4When Christ, who is your a life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
5Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. 6Because of these, the wrath of God is coming. 7You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived.
5Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. 6The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. 7The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. 8Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God.
