The Fight For Your Destiny!

Category : Uncategorized

It is the will of God that we realize or attain our destiny (Jeremiah 29:11) but one weapon the enemy employs in his attempt to deny Christians their destiny is sexual sins. Therefore, it is necessary for believers to be spiritually alert, be vigilant and be prepared to fight for their destiny.

Sexual sin is contagious and cancerous, except it is confronted and dealt with; it has destroyed many people’s destiny. Recent events in the world show that the devil and his agents are on the loose to steal, kill and destroy destinies at a faster rate than ever. Unfortunately, many have lost their heavenly rewards. God’s word is clear on this matter; “Flee Sexual Immorality” (1 Corinthians 6:18 – 20).

The good news is the consequences can be avoided, if the sin is confessed and forsaken. You cannot afford to lose your royal priesthood. Your destiny is too important to be destroyed by a few minutes of sexual pleasure. Do not think it cannot happen to you (1 Corinthians 10:12), be vigilant!
Sexual temptation is one of the tools the devil uses to entice people to sin and to destroy destiny. It takes spiritual alertness to discern and resist sexual temptation therefore effective strategies must be employed to avoid sexual lust. Sexual sin includes any interpersonal activity involving sex organs that does not conform to God’s laws on Sexuality.

Despite being heir to the throne of David, Prince Amnon lost his life prematurely; Princess Tamar became desolate in her brother’s house; Absalom unnecessarily struggled with his father for the throne (2 Samuel 13). Sexual lust destroyed Samson’s destiny to begin Israel’s deliverance (Judges 13:2-5, Judges 16:30). These are examples of how destinies were shattered, just like that of many believers today, because of sexual lust.

Sexual sin is dangerous; it destroys and frustrates those who have fallen into it from realising the plans and purpose of God for their lives. It is imperative to deplore all available weapons and strategies to defend your destiny. You can fight sexual lust by;

  • Being aware and understanding your destiny and be spiritually alert to fight for it.
  • Realising that the devil can use anyone to present sexual temptation (Potiphar’s wife, brethren in the same department in the church, at school or workplace), so don’t underestimate anyone!
  • Being prepared to fight for your destiny at all cost. Train your feet to ‘Flee from all appearance of sin’.

The understanding and effective use of strategies for fighting sexual lust is a must for every believer. Joseph was destined to rule, he knew it and would not allow anything or anyone to destroy his destiny. When every attempt to thwart the plan of God for him failed, the enemy employed a tool (sexual temptation) which has been used against many other people but Joseph proved he was different from others. With his knowledge of God and obedience to the instruction of God on sexual sins, he successfully fought the enemy of his destiny (Gen. 39:1 – 20). Joseph proved that sexual lust can be resisted. Joseph had a choice – do it, or, flee. His response (fleeing) to Mrs. Potiphar’s sexual advances is a lesson for all.

Many believers and church leaders have fallen into sexual sins; some have been restored, some are struggling, while some remain defeated. The difference between these categories of people is their attitude and willingness to examine their sexual life in the light of the word of God, take responsibility for their sexual sins and their determination to live a life of holiness.

King David confessed his sins and obtained forgiveness. The Lord is willing to forgive and restore any sinner. Confess your sins and seek genuine new relationship with God by meditating daily on the word of God and by seeking a sanctified life; God who is faithful and just will forgive.

If you are a Christian and have fallen into sexual sin, your fellowship with God can be restored but you will need to go through a process of Repentance, Restitution and Restoration. May the Lord grant you the Grace to confess and forsake your sinful ways and preserve your destiny in Jesus name.

Domestic Violence: Types, Impact & Resolution

Category : Uncategorized

Why Do Disputes End in Violence?

by Rev (Dr) Elijah ORETADE and Mrs Toyin AJEIGBE.

Teaser: Why Do Disputes End in Violence? Why are people not speaking out and this bottled-in tension eventually find its way out in some form of violence or the other?

Unheard of or of rare occurrence was the issue of domestic violence in Nigeria in times past but what is the case today? There is the sickening report of gruesome murder, battering to stupor, acid bath, setting ablaze among couples in our very own nation, Nigeria! How about high records of separation and divorce? Unknown to the public ear and eyes also are thousands of homes and marriages that are just sticking together but all is not well. This menace spares no one. Everybody and anybody can be the victim or the perpetrator!

Disputes start from minor disagreements and misunderstandings that are not promptly addressed and escalates to an unmanageable proportion!

Disagreements or clashes of personality or interests cannot be totally eliminated. The question is not “will I face conflicts?” but “how can I best manage conflicts when they arise?” In actual fact, the tension that comes from conflicts or disputes can be healthy and beneficial to growth if dealt with correctly. However, it is better, easier and cheaper to resolve disputes than to manage conflict.

Communication is key in any relationship and especially in a marriage relationship. Effective communication holds the centre of a relationship. If a relationship must thrive, the parties involved must freely talk about everything; their hurts, their joys, their secrets, their errors; everything and anything. Not speaking out, leads to bottled in emotions and especially negative emotions; and a human heart can only take so much, after some time, where there is no soothe for the hurting heart, there is an outburst of emotion which could come in varying degrees of harm to those around the hurting one. Article written by Rev (Dr) Elijah ORETADE and Mrs Toyin AJEIGBE.

Come around to the Blissfulmates, 17, Adeyi Avenue, Off Awolowo way, Old Bodija, Ibadan on April 19, 2019 (4-7pm) and let’s talk about these salient points.

It’s free, but please make your bookings on 08113777009 to reserve a seat.
