Stay with me to the end now because the following may be having a huge LIMITING impact on your ability to grow and increase your WEALTH…
Matthew 5:28 – “But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.”
Jesus did not tell us not to lust after other women just because He didn’t want us to have any fun. He told us this because He wanted the BEST for you and I and because He understood the severe consequences of lust.
What are the consequences?
Well, there are actually quite a few consequences described in the Bible. However, we are only going to concern ourselves in this setting with the one that pertains to MONEY.
Let’s take a look…
Job 31:1 – “I made a covenant with mine eyes; why then should I think upon a maid?”
Job 31:9 – “If mine heart have been deceived by a woman, or if I have laid wait at my neighbour’s door;”
Job 31:11 – “For this is an heinous crime; yea, it is an iniquity to be punished by the judges.”
Job 31:12 – “For it is a fire that consumeth to destruction, and would ROOT OUT ALL MINE INCREASE.”
These scriptures make it clear what we are to refrain from:
- Sexual fantasies about some person you aren’t married to
- The advances of a whorish woman
- Seeking a sexual relationship with someone you aren’t married to
Why? Because the consequences are two-fold:
- To do so becomes a mental wildfire that eats away at you until eventually you will start trying to act it out in reality and it completely destroys you, your home, your career, your life, and everything that is important to you.
- God’s curses your financial situation and removes your ability to achieve financial increase.
Am I talking to you?
Can you now see why your success has consistently been just out of reach and why you’ve never been able to get ahead?
Here’s the three-part solution…
Part one of the solution can be found in 1 John 1:9, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Get on your knees and confess your sin to Jesus Christ and ask Him to forgive you and cleanse you and to give you the power to overcome this sin.
Part two of the solution was in Job 31:1, “I made a covenant with mine eyes”. You must determine in your heart – you must make up your mind – that you are going to control what your physical eyes are going to look at and what your “mental” eyes are going to dwell upon.
Part three of the solution is to continuously quote to yourself Psalms 101:3, “I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes.”
PUT AWAY the pornography.
PUT AWAY the TV and the movies with nudity, sexual themes and sexual innuendos.
I know that in our society, this can be a challenge but you can do it – you MUST do it – if you want your FORTUNE to INCREASE.
Instead, put your focus, your attention, and your attraction upon the companion you are married to and let God bless your LIFEand your FINANCIAL SITUATION.
Bottom line, don’t let your eyes and your imagination take away your fortune and destroy your life and everything that is really important to you. Rather, choose to be a Millionaire For Jesus.
