Dealing with Lust.
Jesus came and paid the price for us! Now we can be free of our burdens and stand righteous before our Heavenly Father!
“Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.”
~I John 4:10 ~
If you have fallen into temptation or walked away from the Lord, remember that He is only a prayer away.
“Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted, when times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.”
~ Acts 3:19 ~
“The Lord is not slack concerning His promises, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward,
not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”
God said in Jeremiah 3:22, “Return, ye backsliding children, and I will heal your backsliding.” The Lord Jesus will never force you to serve Him. The choice is yours! What ever situation you may find yourself in today, know that there is nothing impossible with God! Surrender your life to Him completely and ask Him to forgive you of your sins. The Bible says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13).
Be wise in how you spend your time and what you allow to enter your eye gates. Avoiding certain activities, places and forms of entertainment will decrees the opportunity for temptation to enter in.
“See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.”
~ Ephesians 5:15-16 ~
“I made a covenant with my eyes not to look lustfully at a girl.
~ Job 31:1 ~
“Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.”
~ 1 Corinthians 6:18 ~
“Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.”
~ 2 Timothy 2:22 ~
Avoiding fellowship with individuals that engage in ungodly activities will help you in the struggle against sin.
“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
~ Psalms 1:1-2 ~
“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?”
~ 2 Corinthians 6:14 ~
Spend time everyday praying and reading the Bible. Surround yourself with people who love God and will strengthen you spiritually. If you are not attending a church, find one that teaches the Bible as the Word of God. Our prayer for you is that you would grow strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. (please see Ephesians 6:10)
May the hand of the Almighty move on your behalf, bringing a supernatural turn around that lasts the rest of your life!
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
~ 2 Corinthians 5:17 ~
“Being confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.”
