Our sexuality is not just something physical. It has a spiritual, mental and emotional dimension as well. It is entwined throughout our spirit, soul and body. Because it was created for covenant, God designed it to work like soft wax. It would be forever captivated by whatever imprint it first received. Originally, that imprint would have been with our covenant mate. Life was then easy. We would continually have sexual desire for them.
In Proverbs 5:18-19, the Word says “Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice with the wife of your youth. As a loving deer and a graceful doe, let her breasts satisfy you at all times; and always be enraptured with her love.”
God did not make faithfulness hard. He created it to be easy. Sin has made it hard. Our sexual sins have created wrong imprinting which creates ungodly desires.
It then opens a door to demonic activity. The church gives us messages related to sexual sin like, “Just don’t do it. Don’t give in to temptation. “Yet we need the power of God to change desires that have become imprinted on our very sexual nature deep within us. Yes, we may need deliverance but we also need the fire of God to purify and wipe our sexual slate clean.
Does not His Word declare, “Behold all things have become new” in 2 Corinthians 5:17?
We must take hold of the fact that He is a redeeming, restoring God who is not going to leave this essential area of our lives undone. However, everything we receive from God must be appropriated by faith.
Does He not say, “For with God nothing will be impossible.” Luke 1:37.
But if we don’t understand our sexuality, we won’t even know what to ask God for. Understanding our sexuality helps us to know why we so desperately need this area of our lives to be purified and renewed.
Before you go any further:
⏺Do you believe God’s Word that He will heal you?
⏺Do you believe God’s Word that He has come to restore you (bring you back to your original state)?
⏺Do you believe God’s Word that He will redeem (return that which has been stolen) all things?
⏺Do you believe God’s Word that says nothing is impossible with Him?
