Peer Pressure on Sexual Immoralities {Akinpade Pelumi}

If I’d known that my shyness towards females was God’s strategy to preserve my destiny, I wouldn’t have allowed friends mock and make gest of me thereby pressuring me to enter into fornication.

God has His own ways of preserving us from many evil things but we don’t tend to see it as God’s help.

However, the devil also have ways of using ungodly friends to counsel and pressure people of God into sins.

One sided relationship

Starting from my secondary school days, I’ve been this stubborn but shy guy when it comes to girls. To the extent that I dated a lady in my heart for terms before approaching her to inform her about our relationship.

This persisted till I got to higher institution. In my second year on campus, my friends had their girlfriends but I had none per say.

Here comes the negative pressure

One certain day, we were discussing and they were sharing how they roll with their babes. One even shared how he was mating with a married nurse. Then they turned to me, making gest of me because I had none.

I felt out of the group. You know that state when you feel like the odd one out. I felt kinda bad. Then I made up my mind. I Started looking for a girlfriend. So I can also belong to the crew. And remember the bible says — seek and you shall find {Matt 7:7}. It’s a principle, you shall surely find. So I found and the rest is story.

I was pressured negatively. I entered into what God was preventing me from all because I had ungodly friends. And it became a major problem for me even when I found Christ. But thanks to God for His undying love and mercy.

However, I had to go for deliverance before I got free from the yoke.

This is to someone out there, if you’ve found Christ but you were once a fornicator or adulterer you will/might need go for deliverance before things can become better for you.

Finally, If you’re out there and you’re always shy to talk to ladies or ladies don’t even consent whenever you ask if they’ll be your girlfriend for the sake of fornication, then God is really preserving your destiny. Please don’t allow friends pressurize you into Fornication.

This goes to the ladies too. I believe there are ladies who pressurize their fellow ladies into sexual immorality. Please refuse to be peer pressurized.

Bible Reference :

1 Corinthians 6:18-19 KJV
{18} Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.

[19] What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
