Sally was the definition of young, stylish and successful, she had a good job, made enough money to travel for vacation 2-3 times a year and she was a power dresser. People began to notice how fabulous she always turned out and because of this, she was a hit on social media. She had celebrity status on Instagram with thousands of followers.
Sally was a good Christian but with her new found fame and status, she became more liberal in her views, she wanted to be acceptable to everyone so she adopted a lukewarm view to God and church.
When Sally turned 24, she started thinking seriously of settling down. The only guy that could maintain her celebrity status and give her the dream life was Gbenga , the challenge was that he was not a Christian, he belonged to another religion but he was truly a nice guy and a gentleman. Gbenga told her that she would have to convert to his religion but they would have the wedding in church and at Gbenga's place of worship to satisfy their parents.
Sally loved Gbenga and he could afford her lifestyle. To her those two qualities were more important than anything else. They had a carnival like wedding and it was the talk of the town.
The first 3 months was a fairy tale then Sally fell ill. She was in the hospital for 3 weeks and then she recovered. After a month, the sickness returned. This became the pattern for Sally, she was always in and out of hospitals, she never enjoyed her marriage. After sometime, Gbenga was frustrated and he decided to marry another wife. Sally was heartbroken and disappointed, she wanted to commit sucide. It was at that moment that she heard a voice "No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.(Matthew 6;24 NLT) You chose money over Me, if you had chosen Me, money would not have been your problem"
Sally began to cry and to confess her sins to Jesus and she was healed. All of Gbenga's family were surprised. What they did not tell Sally was that there was a generational curse operating in the family that makes the wives die before their husbands. Today, Sally is hale and hearty and she has a good relationship with the second wife.
The bible says in 2 Corinthians 6:14 (ESV)
Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?
This word is for someone, stay with Jesus! Different laws apply in different places. You have no idea what you are getting into. Jesus can send you the EXACT kind of man you want. He knows your needs and He will cater for you, don't try to figure it out for yourself, your man will come!
Hebrews 10:36-39 says; 36You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. 37For,
“In just a little while,
he who is coming will come
and will not delay.”
“But my righteous one will live by faith.
And I take no pleasure
in the one who shrinks back.”
39But we do not belong to those who shrink back and are destroyed, but to those who have faith and are saved.
Wait for God!
