Part 1: I had shared a testimony, about idols. If you are not careful in all you do, you can make someone are something out of an idol; being a women or man after God heart, and having desire to be married can affect your relationship with God by being so anxious about it or constantly dwelling on it. Instead of doing all of that, you can lay it down before God and He will take care of all your desire you have in your heart.
Part 2: I talk about the mind, freedom, lust, and relationship. One of the biggest thing the enemy attack Christian is there mind, and weakness. That’s why it’s very important to build a relationship with God so you can overcome the potholes of the world.
HEALING HEART & HEALING MIND
The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Psalm 34:18
Failure to know where the battle take place is detrimental because you’ll keep trying to fix the problem with the wrong solution, often making matters worse. The battle for sexual purity is the battle of the mind. The war takes place in the brain. It is possible for a man to genuinely love Christ but fail to stop his addiction on his own.
I get so mad at the devil when I hear young people being wrap up in pornography, fornication, low self-esteem, and hearing young women allowing man sexual abuse them. Nevertheless, there more young people have babies out of marriage; being a single mother is not easy at all. 2013 the average percent, was 72% of young people having babies out of wedlock; that percent was in 2013, we are now in 2016. I become a single mother in 2003, I was very young with a very low self-esteem and was abuse physical, emotional by my mother. Before my father pass, they both seem like they were happy. But the biggest thing they could not give to me was love. Now I’m 29 of age, I got save in 2010. The more I started to build my relationship with God the more I begin to know myself more, and my purpose God has for me on this earth. Deeper I go with God the more I can help my child, by giving her an understanding of real love, not love from this world but love from God. Every day I will tell her “Love you and God have a purpose for your life”…. My Child is now 12 of age. She is so smart very open with me now!!! So, excited what God is doing in my life; he can also do it for you. You don’t have to live in sin and chase after mans, you can make a decision now and chase after God.
TELL THE TRUTH
If we say that we have no sin we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sin, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness 1 John 1:8-9
Being free from all sin. you would have to come to God with a humbles heart and surrender everything to Him.
Definition for surrender: to agree to stop fighting, hiding, resisting, etc.; because you know that you will not win or succeed.
With that being said. If you are fighting your flesh to stop sinning against your own body, it will never happen because you are not your own creator, you would have to give it to God.
- Where the battle takes place:
See 2 Corinthians 10:3-5, James 4:1 and James 1:14
- Sinning against your body:
– In 1 Corinthians 6:18, Paul explains that sexual sins are not like other types of sins. When you sexually sin, you sin against your own body. with brain science, we now know that when you have a sexual release, your brain gets flooded with neuron chemicals that are as strong as drugs. So when you are sexually acting out, you are restricting your brain and setting yourself up for sexual bondage.
See – James 1:14-15
Whatever attracts and holds you attention will eventually control the direction of your life. -Paul Cole
