WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT OVERCOMING LUST
PRAYING: LORD YOU ARE THE ONE THAT CREATED US, HELP US TO UNDERSTAND YOUR TRUTH. REMOVE THE LIES FROM OUR HEART, BODY, MIND, AND SOUL. IN THE NAME OF JESUS!
PRAYING FOR ALL MEN
(TWO TIMOTHY 2:1-7) THEREFORE I EXHORT FIRST FOR ALL THAT SUPPLICATIONS, PRAYERS, INTERCESSIONS, ANDGIVINGOF THANKS BE MADE FOR ALL MEN, FOR KINGS AND ALL WHO ARE IN AUTHORITY, THAT WE MAY LEAD A QUIET AND REVERENCE. FOR THIS IS GOOD AND ACCEPTABLE IN THE SIGHT OF GOD OUR SAVIOR, WHO DESIRES ALL MEN TO BE SAVED AND TO COME TO THE KNOWLEDGE FOR THE TRUTH. FOR THERE IS ONE GOD AND ONE MEDIATOR BETWEEN GOD AND MEN, THE MAN CHRIST JESUS, WHO GAVE HIMSELF A RANSOM FOR ALL, TO BE TESTIFIED IN DUE TIME, FOR WHICH I WAS APPOINTED A PREACHER AND AN APOSTLE, I AM SPEAKING THE TRUTH IN CHRIST AND NOT LYING A TEACHER OF THE GENTILES IN FAITH AND TRUTH
(TWO TIMOTHY 2:22)
Flee also youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
God given us powers over sin, but we allow ourselves, to be weak in the flesh with lack of an understanding. God said pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. We have people claiming God is blessing them, but is he really blessing you when you’re not fleeing from your own desire of your flesh? because God does not dwell in the midst of sin.
Samson was a physically strong man, yet he was no match for his own lust (Judges 16:1) Now Samson went to Gaza and saw a harlot here and went in to her.
Profiting from Trials
(James1:2-5) My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will received anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways. How can we count it all joy, by falling? James1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him as of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.
If we allow the seeds of lust to germinate, they will sprout into something bigger, more powerful, more difficult to uproot. Temptation becomes sin when it is allowed to germinate. Desire takes to a life of its own and becomes lust.
You have heard that it was said to those of old, You shall not commit adultery. But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. God is the heart of our domain, but if we allow sin to grow there, we defile his temple.
The Lord our God made a covenant with us in Horeb. The Lord did not make this covenant with our fathers, but with us, those who are here today, all of us who are alive. The Lord talked with you face to face on the mountain from the midst of the fire. I stood between the Lord and you at that time, to declare to you the word of the Lord; for you were afraid because of the fire, and you did not go up the mountain.
When we disobey God in any areas, we are causing ourselves to walk in our own flesh.
For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, “You shall not murder, “You shall not steal. “You shall not bear false witness, “You shall not covet, and if there is any other commandment, are all summed up in this saying, namely, “You shall your neighbor as yourself.”
When we surrender to the Lord, we find our need met by crying out to the Lord and knowing deep in heart that we need help. We cannot go days with God if you think that, best beloved your flash will have his way over you, by falling in the lust of your feeling. Sin of this world makes it seem like it will be okay, by making you feel going and making it looking good. Once we get trick the enemy has us. In order to come out of it, you would have to reach out to God, with a desperate and humble heart toward the Lord.
PAYING: LORD YOU LOVE US TOO MUCH TO HELP US TO REMOVER SIN OUT OF OUR HARET; YOU SEE THE BEST IN US LORD, BUT WE ALLOW THE FOOLISH FLESH TO TAKE THE BEST OF US. LORD HELPS US TO SEE IN OUR HEART WHAT YOU SEE, SO WE CAN BE CONQUERORS JUST LIKE ROMANS 8:37. IN THE NAME OF JESUS, AMEN
