Have you ever had sexual fantasies? You are single yet have pictures of passionate love making with an imaginary lover? Yes, I have several times as a single lady. What? Read it again, yes, I have had mental pictures of hot, passionate sex with an imaginary lover while I was single!!!
Listen, I wasn't the one who initiated the images, the devil, threw them at me as suggestions. When sexual suggestions comes in your mind, don't mistake them as your thought, the devil, gave you the pictures and flash them in your mind especially when you are born again, read your Bible a lot and got busy preaching the gospel as I did. Have you sinned that way? Nay!
The problem comes in when you accept the thoughts as your own and start meditating on it, taking active steps to practice it and actually doing it, the devil has finally finished you!
The easiest way to deal with sexual temptation is in your mind! Don't think about it, don't allow the pictures to stay, don't accept the demonic suggestions, pull it down immediately! The Bible says, "Casting down IMAGINATIONS, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every THOUGHT to the obedience of Christ." (2 Corinthians 10:5). Yes, you know it is wrong, but that imagination wants to lift itself high against the knowledge of God's word in your life, cast it down!
Immediately that picture comes, resist it. THE Bible says, "RESIST the devil and he will FLEE!"(James 4:7). If you don't actively resist him, that guy won't vamoose!
"Guard your heart with all diligence!" (Proverbs 4:23). Mind what you watch and listen to! If you spend most of your free hours watching romantic movies, the devil is gonna play on your mind for a long long time!
Refuse to masturbate, when you are so horny and the devil is asking you to touch your genitals, don't do it, resist him, pray against it, reject it, renounce it! Fighting against the wiles of the devil is not done passively but actively; actively push him out of your life!
If coming around an opposite sex or communicating with them unleashes your sexual urge, don't rush towards the person, run away from them, flee! It has a faulty foundation already! You can't build a godly relationship with anyone who consistently turn you on.
Learn to fast at least once a week, you should learn to put your flesh under subjection. When the stomach is consistently full, some chemicals interfere with your hormones and tamper with your reasoning faculty. Many singles weep after landing in bed with someone they never ever imagined in their life they will have pre-marital sex with. Starve your flesh, feed your spirit!!!
You are not born again? You need Jesus super fast! Only He can give you the power over sexual sins and temptations for "Not by power, nor by might, but by my Spirit, says the Lord" (Zechariah 4:6), "for by strength shall no man prevail" (1 Samuel 2:9), "I can do all things THROUGH CHRIST that STRENGTHENS me." (Phillipians 4:13).
Seek the Lord's strength and he will definitely give it to you when you earnestly seek him! (Mathew 7:7).
May the Lord grant you understanding and give you the grace to remain chaste, pure and holy to the end in Jesus' name. God bless you, cheers!
