The wicked people in this world hate God’s instruction and counsel. They cast God’s words aside in order to do their own things instead. They are often ok with what is evil and justify it in their discussions with people. Many of these same people partake in adultery in the form of pornography. Because it is so easy to find online, people so easily hide it from people they love. Even in the bathroom and closets, people quietly watch it without their spouse even knowing. And what comes out of a person’s mouth that watches porn, is lust. They not only desire to be with that person sexually but think their spouse is not good enough for them physically and sexually. This is so evil. By what we say and do we are framed in the sight of God. Speaking of these people, it is written, “seeing thou hatest instruction, and casteth my words behind thee. When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers. Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit.” (Psalm 50:17-19)
If you have fallen into sin, know that there still is a way out, along with time, in order to be forgiven by the blood of Jesus. “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.” (Isaiah 53:6) Sin does not have to be the end for us. As long as we have breath, God has His arms stretched out wide to receive us as sinners. We know that we are incapable of living a life that is satisfactory in His sight on our own, but with God in our lives we can do all things. Therefore, we come to the Lord and ask for His protection and to lead us from the evil one, and He does. Even the addiction of pornography is broken by the hand of God in our lives. God declares, “call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.” (Psalm 50:15) The more you pray the more you will trust in God, and not your own flesh. The more you read the Bible, the more you will obey God and not surrender to temptations. The Lord God wants to be your shield. Amen.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that people who call themselves Christians will also learn to live out their faith in You. If we love You, then we should also love Your counsel. We ought to be seeking Your hand on a daily basis and not just one day a week at church. When people in our workplace are saying things that are evil, we should not continue in this evil chatter. God, it is so easy to conform to the things of this world when Your Spirit is not with us. And so we see people of all ages fall into the sin of pornography. Without You leading us, we have no control over the flesh to resist such lust. It is in these sins that we are found guilty and framed before the Judge of the heavens and earth. You are our gracious King, God. As a wretched person in Your sight, I have felt this guilt, not knowing that I could be forgiven. The truth is, Your arms are stretched out wide to me still. How deep is Your love? Thank You for hearing my cries. Your blood has covered me and made me whole. I love You, Jesus. I give You praise, my excellent King. Amen.
