If you have fallen to sexual temptation, and are a woman or man of God, then you understand the feeling you have the morning after. The great morning after – you once again allowed sex to be your god for a few moments, but immediately feel the conviction of the Holy Spirit. You begin to wonder – why did I do this again? God, please forgive me! But, the conviction of the Holy Spirit is so powerful. It truly hinders your walk. But, not only sex. Whatever your vice is, if you are a man or woman of God, you know and feel the conviction of the Holy Spirit.
Before the morning after, you used to live openly and freely for God. Everything you touched turned to gold. You were able to praise and smile freely, and expect great and mighty things in your life. God would give you the desires of your heart, but because you have allowed the thoughts of the world to take over your soul – you feel guilt, shame, and no longer possess the same zeal for God.
Count it all joy
Whether you have fallen to an extramarital affair or allowed yourself to fall to premarital sexual relationships, know that you can get up! Read James 1:2-3. It states, “…Count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.” Ask God for His forgiveness and recall His words that a just man falleth seven times, but rises up again. You have the power to get back up and live the full and abundant life He has called you to live.
Win the war
Begin to declare and decree over your life that strongholds are broken from your mind, body and soul. Stand on God’s Word and ask for His help concerning this, recalling 1 Corinthians 10:13. We can truly rejoice, because God has already orchestrated a way out!
