It’s Friday night and someone is extremely frustrated. You’re playing sad love songs or sexy sex songs. You’re sipping. You’re thinking some sexual thoughts. You’re watching a steamy movie. You’re mad because you are alone yet again. You’re having an extended flesh moment. Fight.
I’ve heard so many opinions and perspectives about how to deal with being in this predicament but I don’t have opinions. I can only deal in the spirit. So we have to fight. We have to kill those feelings. We can’t dwell on our desires, lusts, needs, and emotions. We will be wrecked all night long if we do. If you’re dwelling on it, you’ll end up dabbling in it.
Get all that stuff out of your spirit now. Change the atmosphere right now. Fight the lust demons right now. Fight the lustful thoughts out of your head right now. Put on some worship music – even if you don’t feel like it. (The same way our kids have to clean, do homework and follow the rules whether they want to or not). See you don’t have to like it to obey. Start giving God praise that you’re not living in sexual sin. Get out of your flesh and get into that place of peace and rest. Go on to sleep. Dr.J.
