Every good (perfect) gift comes from above; it comes down from the Father. James 1:17
In the place of employment, the strip club, we must identify and understand what money is meant for us and which is not. There will be temptations but it is essential to know God doesn’t tempt us.
“Let no one say when he/she is tempted I am tempted of God; for God is incapable of being tempted by evil and He Himself tempts no one. But every person is tempted when he is drawn away, enticed and baited by his/her own evil desire (lust, passion, love of money etc.) James 1:13-14
When a customer attempts to entice us to do things we wouldn’t normally do with promises of money or other materials, we must ask ourselves who sent this customer? Would God send someone into the club to convince or provoke you to do wrong? God does send blessings into the club but we must be able to identify our own weaknesses to ensure we aren’t being taken advantage of. It is a challenge to walk away from money unless we know how God works. Tricks come to the club to trick the saints. You may entertain but you will not be degraded, corrupted, lowered, disgraced, humiliated or shamed if you stand on the word and have strength to walk away from some customers who come to make you turn on yourself for a small gain. When you know what money to leave on the table, you will always have a clear conscious and be deserving of the blessing God has in store for you. Even if you have to dance 30 songs in a row doesn’t mean you passed up easy money. It means that you have an opportunity to earn what you make. You should take pride in and feel good about earning your money and not taking hand outs for selling yourself short. Letting guys touch you when you don’t like it or doing anything that makes you feel degraded is not of God.
Remember: Get prayed up before you can get paid up!
Peace and Blessings,
