Detour the Goal of Lust

As a mom of 3 boys, it is very important that I teach my sons how to fight the battle that they face every single day, THEIR SIN, TEMPTATION, & DEPRIVED MIND over youthful lust.

Teaching them to CRY out to God to give them strength, mercy, a renewed conviction to be able to flee youthful lust so they can fight this war against their sins, temptation and deprived mind.

My boys are 20, 13, & 8 and this battle starts earlier and earlier. There are women everywhere we go. The news stands, the store, friends, even church.  Teaching my sons to pray, engage in scripture, listen to music that is soothing to their minds, and most importantly to be able to look away when tempted, is to equip them to fight this battle with God by their side and not by themselves.

Proverbs 31:30 
“Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who 
fears the LORD is to be praised”

LUST is powerful, real and aggressive and does everything to lead them down the road to death!

It is a battle every day, one that will devour our sons if we dont equip them to seek God in this battle instead of the flesh.  As a mom of boys, I dont believe that women FULLY grasp that the temptation towards LUST…………..never stops! Its like a brush fire, that can get out of control very quickly if not sure how to fight it. 

Matthew 5:28-29 
“But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell.

Women have a choice to HELP or DETOUR the goal of lust that our sons are facing on a daily basis! I am challenging you to HELP our sons to detour the goal of lust in their life by taking in these words and asking God how you can make a change to help sons detour from lust!

They are faced with women every day by what they are wearing, how they walk, how they talk, how they act, not even taking into account that this is bait for their sinful mind for them to latch on to. Now please note that I am not stating that mens actions are ALL womans fault. I am saying that both MEN and WOMEN have their parts when it comes to not causing each other to stumble and only through seeking God will both know what that is.

Raising boys who are commented to purity and women that are committed to modesty is my challenge to you as moms.  

Helping our sons to detour from lust by centering on God and not themselves. That women will rise up and serve their brother by not following the pattern of the world and following scriptures demands!

Take a moment to look at this 8 min video, I believe it till give you a bigger insight as to what are sons go through on a daily basis and how we can HELP detour the goal of lust in their lives!

Have you been convicted after reading or watching this short video? The good news is that, the gospel provides forgiveness. I want to lead you to the foot of the cross and cry out to God, who died for the VERY sins that he has been bringing our attention to during this message so that you might receive forgiveness, so that you might change by grace for HIS GLORY!
