Deliverance From Sexual Sin

Not every man has to be enslaved to sexual sin. Proverbs 2:16 warns what happens if deliverance does not come which means that there must be a way to be delivered. Here are some of my notes on the first part of Proverbs 2 about where deliverance is found:

1)”knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.” deliverance comes from allowing yourself to be known, not having any areas hidden from others. Others should have full knowledge of your temptations and what the battle looks like including victory and defeat. (v. 10)

2)”he is a shield to those who walk in integrity” this is a life and death battle and we must cling tightly to the shield of faith. We can’t be too overconfident in our abilities without it. My God will guard me from every attack if I choose to not walk directly in the line of fire, but instead to walk in integrity by choosing the good path of righteousness and justice (v. 7-9)

3)”discretion will watch over you, understanding will guard you.” it is imperative to use common sense. Choose boundaries with relationships of the opposite sex. If you know there is a mine field do you walk in it. Understand what your temptations are and ensure you have hedges of protection. Remember, this is not a harmless matter, but life or death, so go into no situation blind to the dangers it may present. Always have a plan, for example, I am very tempted in the early morning so I need to have a concrete plan of things I want to accomplish when I wake up early because idle hands are typically seek out the forbidden woman for me (v. 11)

If you read this far I’d love to hear you find deliverance from sexual sin.
