TOPIC: How To Banish Lust (1)

MEMORISE: For by means of a harlot A man is reduced to a crust of bread; And an adulteress will prey upon his precious life. (NKJV) Proverbs 6:26

READ: Matthew 5:27-28
[27]Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
[28]But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

Lust is a strong craving for sex that has tampered with the destinies of many youths. Satan knows that once you engage in premarital sex, you will be reduced to nothing, as stated in today’s memory verse, and this will eventually affect your destiny. For the next few days, I will be sharing practical steps on how to control or banish lust so that you can live a victorious life. Some of these steps are:

1. Avoid tempting situations: Don’t put yourself in a situation where you will be alone with an object or a person that creates unhealthy desires in you, such as: pictures, videos, movies, et cetera. Set boundaries around what you access on your phone, computer, and TV. If you must meet with someone that you are sexually attracted to, always make sure that it is in a public place.

2. Consider the consequences of sexual immorality: Whenever thoughts arise about a person or object of unhealthy sexual desire, also consider the consequences that acting on that desire can lead to, such as unwanted pregnancy, STDs, guilt, the feeling of being separated from God, et cetera

Think carefully about these consequences.

You cannot resist the devil while dining with him.

1 Christian, seek not yet repose;
Hear thy guardian angel say,
“Thou art in the midst of foes:
Watch and pray!”

2 Principalities and powers ,
Mustering their unseen array,
Wait for thy unguarded hours:
“Watch and pray.”

3 Gird thy heavenly armour on;
Wear it every night and day
Ambush’d lies the evil one:
“Watch and pray.”

4 Hear the victors who o’ercame;
Still they mark each warrior’s way;
All with one sweet voice exclaim,
“Watch and pray!”

5 Watch, as if on that alone
Hung the issue of the day;
Pray, that help may be sent down:
Watch and pray.

6 Hear, above all, hear thy Lord,
Him thou lovest to obey;
Hide within thy heart His word
“Watch and pray!”

Exodus 28:1-43; Matthew 25:31-26:13
