Maintaining A Godly Atmosphere In A Corrupt World.

Corruption and violence have infiltrated the good world that was created by God. This has not just started, it has always been. Right from the fall of man till now, the world has become more and more corrupt. Thus making it more difficult for a righteous man to live, work and remain righteous in a corrupt world.
Let’s face it, it’s not getting better and will not get better. The love of many have waxed cold because iniquity abounds -( Matt 24:12).

The good news is: God has and will always reserve a remnant for Himself. A remnant who despite all the happenings around would stand tall and refuse to compromise their faith. Even so then, at this present time there is a remnant according to the election of grace – Rom 11:5.

In 2 Peter 2:6-9 the bible talks about how righteous Lot was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked in the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. His righteous soul was tormented from day to day by seeing and hearing their lawless deeds.
What Lot saw and heard tormented his righteous soul. Many believers can identify with this in this day and age. How much of what we see on billboards, television, hear on news and around us torments our righteous souls?

But the day of The Lord will come as a thief in the night both the earth and all that are in it will be burned up- (2 Pet 3:10-11).
Therefore since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought we to be in holy conduct and godliness?

1. Let’s first deal with the issue of seeing and hearing that tormented Lot’s soul and still torments the righteous today.
The lawless deeds around torments the righteous soul making it almost impossible to believe God. The solution to this is constant and continuos hearing of the word of God. For faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of God ( Rom 10:17).

2. Godly counsel- Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly…( Ps 1:1). Be in the company of Godly people with Godly counsels.
How to identify Godly counsel: Does the counsel reinforce God’s word and align itself with the clear and complete teachings of the bible? Does it strengthen your faith and give you an honourable purpose in life? Does it turn you from wrongdoing, promoting righteousness and purity in your life?

3. Do not stand or sit in the path of sinners – Ps 1:1- This does not suggest eliminating ourselves completely from this world or not reaching out to unbelievers for the purpose of soul winning. It suggests a progression of influence that results from walking in the counsel of the ungodly. The walk-stand-sit progression suggests gradual integration into the company of the unjust. As believers we need to guard against this.

4. Habitually meditate on the word of God ( Ps1:2).

5. Pray without ceasing, thank God without ceasing- Do this regularly and it becomes a habit (1 Thes. 2:11).

There are many more points, but I have left the space for you ( the reader) to add on from your experience. Please click reply at the end of this blog to suggest ways to maintain a Godly atmosphere in a corrupt world. Your Godly counsel will bless others.

God bless you.


Your responsibility in God’s prosperity plan.


God requires us to play our parts in His prosperity plan for us as He has already made available to us all that we require to prosper.

Meditating on the word of God is the gateway to prosperity. Psalm 1:2(b) ” And in His law he meditates day and night”.

Our responsibility is to meditate on God’s word and observe to do the things that are written in it. (Joshua 1:8)

Psalm 1:3(b) “and whatever he does shall prosper”.

This includes everything: your family, your children, your marriage, your business, your ministry, your job and your health.

Many people want the promised results without responsible commitment but none of us will ever gain everything truly worthwhile in just an instant.

The truly worthwhile takes time to develop. Do not expect God’s answers to leap to your schedule. Remember His answers occur when you put His word into action.

“Just as a period of intensive study precedes a college degree so through patient, pursuit of His promise may we wait for the word of God to mature in our lives”. F.P

 Let’s have a look at God’s word and practical fruitful living

1.    God’s word is a purifier unto Holy living (James 1:23-25)

2.    God’s word can purge as well as ignite (Jer 20:9, Jer 23:29)

3.    God’s word is a powerful delivering agent (Ps 119:9)

4.    God’s word gives strong discernment (Heb 4:12)

The all-encompassing absolutely authoritative word of God is unchangingly secured in heaven.

Though times and seasons change through social customs, human opinions and philosophical view point vary, they have no effect on the constancy or authority of God’s word.
