The Lord showed me several years ago that the reason I struggle with sin (namely porn and lust) is because I don’t use all of the tools he has provided me with. What are the tools? Worship, prayer, the word, relationships and one more 2 Cor. 10:5.
I was terrified. I know who I am and I am not that person anymore. I sent out a text to my wife and a friend to pray. Neither could talk. I had worship playing in the back ground. I begin to pray and quote scripture and I read in the word. I did 2 Cor 10:5. I took the thoughts captive. What happened next was extraordinary. I laid back in my chair and turned up the worship music. I got still and just worshiped Him. I don’t know how much time went by …. Not long maybe 7 minutes. I knew it was over. I opened my eyes and the attack was over and the feelings I had were gone and they did not come back. I went on the rest of the day and remained at my desk and finished my work.
Thank you Jesus!
Radical obedience always precedes the miraculous.
