Proverbs 6:25 – Danger Ahead!!
â€œDo not lust in your heart after her beauty or let her captivate you with her eyes.â€
~Â Proverbs 6:25
Folks I understand your confusionâ€¦. I led my first few weeks of devotionals with thoughts of prayer, wisdom and guidance. Now I come out talking about lust of the flesh leading to sin? Bear with me on this. I look to this scripture among many that leads us all to guard our hearts and directs us in our paths in The Lord.
It becomes such a hard line to take, but we must pray for discernment in our hearts and understand the proper course of action. We know the desire of the flesh will try and draw us into sin, as the flesh always will. We have been given a greater choice in that we can have hope and life in choosing Him over what our flesh seeks.
Children of Christ, I plead for us all to take a stance on this. Stay true to His word. Whether you are single, married or anything in betweenâ€¦ Guard your hearts, as we know this is where the enemy has his arrows and barbs pointed. We can continue to defeat Satan by rendering him incapable of changing our hearts, minds or eyes in what we see and do. We can all choose to follow Godâ€™s true word and have no lust in our hearts and seek purity of love in all our relationships.
