Claudia Gray quotes, ‘Self knowledge is better than self control any day, Raquel said firmly. And I know myself well enough to know how I act around cookies.’
Leave the last part.
I am a child of God and Everytime I am told on Sexual Matters, I should practice self control.
Most times we practice self control not because we understand why we are doing it but because we were told to.
Today I would like you to just understand what your body is let’s go to
1 Corinthians 6:19
*Do you not know that your body is the temple of the HOLY SPIRIT… who is in you, whom you have received from GOD you are not your OWN; you were bought at a price therefore honor GOD with your body.
You are the temple of the holy Spirit, do you want him to come into a filthy place to worship?.
A place filled with immoral thought, you are God’s child.
The issue is always *LUST*
Truth be told, Marriage doesn’t solve The problem or MONSTER called *LUST* having a girlfriend doesn’t solve that but,
having GOD and knowing who you are to him and what he wants for you is one step to the solution,
(Here you have to read the word, to speak it, to pray it)
Knowing that indeed that lust is an issue to you is another step there.(Self Awareness)
Then the third step is establishing how it affects you(what does it make you do? Is does it lead to fornication, masturbation all those sexual acts)
But of all things the first real deal is going back to the basics…
*An act before is becomes an act it is always a thought.*
How are the thoughts stirred up in you?
Knowing what triggers those thoughts:
Is It that series you’ve been watching….
Is it that girl whose DP you are always stalking?
Is it that friend who sends you suggestive texts?
Is it your girlfriend who dresses in a suggestive manner?
Then from there you can start self control not by CONTROLLING yourself when you are just about to think SEx or do SEX, but from the SOURCE.
That is real SELF CONTROL.
