I woke one morning and began to see things differently. I realized that in JESUS an overwhelming Victory had been won at the Cross! That JESUS CHRIST had actually taken on HIMSELF my sin and the punishment I deserved. I learned that I had a new identity in CHRIST JESUS, although it was hidden from me at first by my blindness. I stopped begging HIM and began to Praise HIM for my new unseen identity as a whole person. The more I looked at the positive, the more the old problem diminished.
GOD says, in HIS Word, "My strength is made perfect in your weakness." GOD isn't waiting for you to get it all together so that HE can accept you. No! HE Loves you just as you are. Perhaps this prayer could be yours today:
Heavenly FATHER JEHOVAH GOD, There are time when I get so depressed about my unwanted sexual temptations. I hate them yet want them. I feel divided. Sometimes I don't know who I really am. I feel I'll never measure up to what YOU want for me. But GOD, I am not going to be afraid of my problem. If I let it frighten me, it will drive me away from YOU and get the best of me. I know it has lost its power over me because YOU robed YOURSELF in flesh and came to this Earth as The Man JESUS to take the punishment for my sins on the Cross. I no longer count this sin as mine. This righteousness YOU have granted, I accept as mine. I still have a long way to go, but I thank YOU, for YOUR healing Strength, Acceptance and Love. I Thank YOU, for all of the many Blessings, great and small, that YOU grant each of us daily. In JESUS Name I Pray, Amen!
