“Fence Straddler” by Dr. Jené Walker

1 Kings 18:21 “And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.”

What is a fence straddler? I know the meaning very well. It describes me and my lifestyle about three years ago. I wanted to follow God and go into ministry, but I also wanted to be in an “all out” relationship with a man who wasn’t my husband. God wouldn’t allow me to be elevated spiritually and in some ways naturally until I decided between, “God or Baal?” I had one leg on the world’s side of the fence and one leg in the kingdom – fence straddler. God kept nudging me with forceful nudges to come out of sin. I mean the kind of nudges that I couldn’t just ignore. The nudges went beyond “heart tugs.”

Will you stay in sin until God has to give you a serious nudge or will you come out now? We stifle our own elevation with our rebellion. Will you go all in with God? He says if not, just go all in with Satan. He said for us to love Him with all our hearts, all our soul, and all our strength, withholding nothing… Jené Elaine Walker
