Just a few days ago, ugly news saturated the media about the University of Benin, Nigeria, West Africa. A Student only identified as Miss Uwa Omozuwa. She was raped on the altar of a church where we had gone to read and was gruesomely murdered by her assailants. She was just a 22-year-old lady aspiring to become better in life. However, that dream was put death by some demonic young men with lustful thoughts.
You must be wondering why we started a prayer against Lustful Thoughts with the news of a 22-year-old lady that was raped and murdered, that is because it has a connection with this topic. One of the biggest reason why men rape women or why women rape men are because of the lustful thoughts in the heart. Satan is a clever bastard, he knows the best way to manipulate the heart of men and make them beast unto others.
When we entertain Lustful thoughts in our hearts, it will hinder the thinking of the spirit, the spirit of God will not be able to find expression through us. Another great catastrophe that is caused by Lustful thoughts is that it makes the presence of God far away from the man. Meanwhile, when the presence of God is far away from man, another presence overshadows the life of a man.
King David entertained a lustful thought in his heart when he was at the Clive of his house looking at the wife of his servant Uriah while she baths. King David had no control of his lust has the feeling overcame his spiritual consciousness to stay holy, he went in with Bathsheba and conceived an unholy fruit. God detests anything unholy and that is why when a man is harboring lustful thoughts in heart, the spirit of God is always far from there because the scripture says the face of God is too holy to behold sin.
