As women, some of us deal with desires regarding our body that seems uncontrollable. Some of us can’t even deal with smelling the scent of men cologne. Some of us can’t even deal with a handsome man touching us even if it is innocent. Some of us have it so bad that we will settle for anything as long as we can get our flesh pleased. Some of us wouldn’t even admit to this but go ahead and tell the truth and shame the devil. We will settle for being abused physically, verbally or emotionally as long as what a man is putting down in the bedroom is rocking our world. Some of us don’t even care if that pleasing last only ten minutes as long as it is pleasing to our flesh. Shame on any of us who think so worthless of ourselves! Allow me to keep it 100% real here. The best thing, ladies, you can put inside of you is GOD’S WORD. Yes, you may say it is easier said and done but the important thing that you are missing is that IT CAN BE DONE. Pouring God’s Word into yourself will kill the flesh daily. When you get that “bothered” feeling, pick up God’s Word and read it. You can even read devotions. Many of us are addicted to our cellphones anyway so make use of it by downloading devotional apps or reading the bible on your cellphone. That is what I do and it helps. Now me? I protect my eyes and my ears as well. I don’t like watching certain things on TV and I don’t like to listen to certain kinds of music. Now, there are many who can tolerate such things and still live a celibate lifestyle. But for me, I just don’t indulge in it.
When you make a vow to become celibate, many things are going to come against trying to tempt you to fall. This is why it is so important to get in God’s Word, read it, know it, and understand it. The knowledge of His Word brings about wisdom and also equips you with all that you need to stand against temptation. Many have SEX ON THE MEMBRANE. Don’t allow yourself to be included in that “MANY” number. Sex is one of the enemy’s greatest tools to cause destruction in your life because so much evil can be transmitted through it when two people are not married. God knows how you feel when you feel it. Draw near to Him and lock your legs in God’s Word. It is RIGHT to save yourself from evil desires. Stop testing the waters by sleeping around with different men because as long as you are operating out of the Will of God, you will not find one who will feed your spirit. If his sex is good, his behavior is going to be off….not by a little but by a long shot. And let’s be honest….the man who is for you is not going to be trying to mess your head up by pleasing you in the sheets. The right man will burn calories by doing the things that are pleasing to God rather than pleasing you in the sheets.
Start protecting your mind, your heart, body, soul and spirit. Stop longing to put things inside of you that will end up destroying you. Get those evil desires out of your head, away from your body and out of your life! Focus on putting God’s Word inside of you instead. 1 Thessalonians 4:3-8 tells says, “It is God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; that each of you should learn to control your own body in a way that is holy and honorable, not in passionate lust like the pagans, who do not know God; and that in this matter no one should wrong or take advantage of a brother or sister. The Lord will punish all those who commit such sins, as we told you and warned you before. For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. Therefore, anyone who rejects this instruction does not reject a human being but God, the very God who gives you his Holy Spirit.”
