Today we will be praying against the lust of the flesh and we will be giving out series of prayers against the lust of the flesh. You might be wondering what the difference between lustful thoughts and lust of the flesh is.
A lustful thought is the bad ideas and concept that was originated from the heart. Oftentimes, these thoughts could be more of sexual immoralities. While Lust of the Flesh simply means using our body to carry out the intention of the devil. Little wonder, Jesus said the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. When the spirit is willing to do the things of the Lord, when your spirit man wants to devote more time to serving God better, but your flesh wants to enjoy some luxury of comfort.
Also, the lust of the flesh could mean we destroying the temple of God Almighty in our body. Remember the bible says our body is the temple of the Living God. So whatever atrocities we commit with our body, we are gradually destroying the temple of the Lord.
For instance, premarital sex is we carrying out the activities of the lust of the flesh. Extramarital relationships could mean we are propagating the activities of the lust of the flesh. We are spirit beings and we should not operate by the flesh, that is why it is important that we take over control of our entire being.
Whenever we want to devote ourselves to doing God’s things, there is always a tussle between the flesh and the Spirit of God. That is why it is pertinent that we free ourselves from the spirit of the lust of the flesh. God doesn’t dwell in a place that has been contaminated with iniquities. If we truly want to be a carrier of the presence, power, and glory of God, we must free ourselves from the lust of the flesh because it limits our spiritual productivity.
If you ever get tired of the lust of the flesh, then you are a step towards getting your deliverance. We have made available a list of prayer points against the lust of the flesh. Pray them with faith today and receive your total freedom in Jesus Christ name.
