Sexual sins and addictions, undoubtedly, have a very firm grip on this generation. It is God’s will that we live in freedom and in purity. 1 Thessalonians 4:3-5 say, “For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour; Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God”
Below are four ways we can overcome sexual sins and addictions. To get the full teaching I advise you watch playlist below:
PRAYER: Prayer renews your body and mind through the fire of the Holy Spirit, scare away demons of lust and evil desires. Prayers breaks demonic chains of sexual captivity and gives you the power of self-control. In your prayers bind monitoring demons and every evil projections that lead to committing sin.
FASTING: Fasting fuels your prayers spiritually. It makes prayers to move with unusual strength, subdues your flesh and uplifts your spirit. Fasting subjects your body and sexual urge under the control of the spirit man.
THE WORD OF GOD: The word of God purifies your heart of evil thoughts. It teaches you the right way of escape and gives you the authority to resist the devil. In fact, it is stressful and almost impossible to overcome sexual sins if you do not have the word of God in you. There’s power in the word of God.
Hebrews 4:12 says, “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
STAY AWAY FROM TEMPTATION: This is a very important tool in overcoming fornication and adultery. Avoid the one that brings you downfall. The physical presence of the one that wants to bring you temptation should be avoided especially in unsafe or lonely places.
When the devil knows that you are weak towards someone, he would assign demons to monitor you. These demons project evil thoughts into your heart and try to saturate your mind with sexual thoughts towards the person. Whenever you are together the demons come around and propel you, through a supernatural force, towards committing sexual sin with the person. If at all you must unavoidably be with such a person make sure the place is safe. Also pray always in your mind as long as both of you stay together. If music is allowed in such a place, play a Christian song. This elevates the spirit above the desires of the flesh and increases the power of self-control.
