Lust

What are some things that we lust over? Cars, money, popularity, sex, drugs, alcohol, chocolate, tobacco, shoes, clothing, tools, food. So many things in this world can trap us into addictions and the devil knows this. He tempts us with all sorts of advertising, like t.v., internet, billboards, and radio. The devil knows how to tempt us and hold us once we grab onto our lustful feelings. If left unchecked we will fall into Satan’s trap falling into a downward spiral. We need to be prepared for these traps and the only way to do that is to have the will power to call upon your Heavenly Father. God can help you with fighting those lustful feelings keeping you on His path. If you keep falling into lustful feelings be strong and know that you can lean on God to get you through it. Heavenly Father, please help us to keep our eyes on you today. Blind us to sinful desires and the devil’s temptations. Give us your eyes today to see what you would see. In Jesus name amen.
