Job 31:1 NLT
I made a covenant with my eyes not to look with lust at a young woman.
Job made a covenant with his eyes that he will not lustfully look at a woman. This is an amazing vow that he made with himself.
Lust may not look like a huge problem in the world that we are living in today, where lust is celebrated.
The small decision that Job made, it had so much of consequence and it brought so much of perspective into his life.
Jesus said, you don’t have to necessarily sleep with a person to break your marriage but if you just look at somebody with lust in your eyes, you have already committed adultery with that person in your heart.
So many of us are guilty of that and we have made wrong choices with our eyes so often. This morning, can you to elevate your standard of purity, making a covenant with God with your eyes or whichever area of your life you are struggling with?
Jesus said, if your hand causes you to sin, cut off your hand; if you eye causes you to sin, gouge it out, or cut off whatever part of the body that is causing you to sin. It is better that you enter into the heaven without that rather than burn in hell for the rest of your life with that particular part of the body.
It is because lust may start by chance, but the more we continue to feed it would become a lifestyle, and over a period of time, this can wreak havoc in your life and can cause you to lose your destiny.
God has called you to be a nation changer. Disconnect from every one of those small things which would lead you to sin and make a promise to guard your money, your eyes, your relationships, your social networks etc. Make a covenant with everything that is holy and sacred, and if there is anything that tries to threaten that sacredness, disconnect from that.
May God encourage you with these words and give you the grace and the strength to do and follow through it for the rest of the day.
God bless you.
