Non negotiable

Do you have non negotiables?

There are some boundaries I’ve placed on my life that are not negotiable.

The stand you are required to have is backed up by this principle of having a non negotiable line.

Ephesians 6:13 KJV

[13] Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

My stand on honouring God first is a non negotiable. How does that practically work ??? I decided Sunday service for me was a non negotiable all the way back in 1995 all those years ago… have I missed some Sunday’s ? Yes there was a season where the winds blew, my non negotiable was being challenged. Disappointment, doubt, and career, money, children, security, belonging, marriage all at once raged war at me…

The storm passed, I was still in church. This is where some end up shipwrecked. With the pressure of any storm we still have choices, and the non negotiable will keep you on firm ground even when all around doesn’t make sense.

I remember asking a pastor where will they go to church while on long service leave.. I was thinking from my perspective how exciting it would be to visit other church’s to see what the Lord is doing elsewhere. To my surprise he responded saying “oh I’m not going to any church it’s my time off, why would I want to go to church on my time off??? “
