THE UNTOLD STORY AND JOURNEY OF THE ACIDIC MANGO
Once upon a time, there was a man who was stranded on the way. He wandered and wandered just to find his way back but to no avail. He became so hungry to the extent that, all he so desired is just a plate of food or anything that will help his stomach.
However, he eventually saw a mango tree from a distance full of fruits. He exhaled in relief, at least there is food at last. He struggled to get there and found out that, the whole mangoes where unripened. They are very much at the acidic stage which will do more harm to him than good. He wept, O Lord, I thought I could eat to keep going, I thought I can calm my intestines with this fruit but I just can’t. Here is a tree full of fruits yet I can’t just eat. Dear Lord, please provide for me. (Crying)
He heard a still small voice saying: My grace is still sufficient, the strength you have can still carry you to a tree of ripened fruit, it can still take you back home.
What a relief He said, Yes! your strength is made perfect in my weakness, I won’t eat acidic mango for stomach sake, I rather hold on to your strength to continue. He rose up, kept pushing on and Lo! In no distance time, he came to an apple tree with many fruits, well-ripened. His Joy knows no bounds as he descended on the Apples.

You know what? No matter the urge you have for sex right now, it can still wait till marriage. Premarital sex is like the acidic mango, yes it will calm the sex hunger for the moment, but the adverse effects are more disastrous.
You might have been believing God for marriage, and you think he is delaying you too long, you are thinking of doing it your own way even if it’s not the right way. Listen, you might end up with “an Acidic” partner, instead of “an Apple” partner. Remember, to obey is better than sacrifice.
You might be waiting for God for the fruit of the womb, you think God is deaf as such you are about visiting “Babalawo” or false prophets to do ungodly stuff. Listen, you might end up with an acidic child that will terminate your life, wait a while for your “Apple” gift from God.

I know waiting is not easy, but it’s worth it. Wait in prayers and praise, God will surely answer your prayers.
If you have not accepted Jesus, please do today.
