FREEDOM FROM LUST IV

Prov. 27:20, “Hell and destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied.” The carnal man can never be satisfied. Take note that there is a close relationship between the eye and the mind. Your eye is a gateway to the mind. That is why you need to be careful how you see, what you see or look at. Before any sin is committed, it passes through three stages:

  1. Conception.
    At this stage, the eyes, ears or any of the other sense organs may be engaged. What you see has a way of impacting you heavily. What you hear has a way of preparing you for action. The world has done a lot of research on this. We need to regulate the things we look at. It is your responsibility to choose what you watch. Unfortunately, the social media has a way of sending unsolicited sites and pictures to our mobile devices. This is a difficult time to raise godly children. At a point, I was so interested in watching wrestling matches on the television set that I knew the time of all the wrestling matches on various channels. This continued until one night, after reclining to bed, I suddenly found myself in the ring with a hulk-like wrestler in my dream. God miraculously delivered me from that encounter and there and then, I decided that never again will I watch a wrestling match. What you watch has a way of affecting your spiritual atmosphere. This is because the mind is a gateway to the spirit man. If you are in Christ, you need to make a conscious effort at renewing your mind in line with the will of God. It is your responsibility; don’t push it to the devil. Rom. 13:14 says you must not make room for the flesh. Jesus taught radical amputation in Matt. 5:29-30, “And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.” May you not fall in love with anything that is capable of controlling your mind contrary to the purpose of God in the mighty name of Jesus.

Pray –

  • Heavenly Father, make it impossible for me to fall in love with anything that is capable of controlling my mind contrary to your will and purpose for my destiny in Jesus’ name.
