Satan does not create sexual desire. It is good and he never produced anything good. His whole aim is to ruin what God created to be good. There are two ways you can ruin a pearl. You can cut it out of the oyster before it matures or you can feed it to the swine. Satan does his best to cut off sexual desire from the oyster of God’s grace and truth. If he can get people to isolate sex from the reality of God, he has virtually destroyed its true meaning and beauty. He also does his best to take the pearl of sexual desire and, instead of putting it in the pendant of marriage, feed it to the swine of fornication and adultery and pornography and incest and child abuse and homosexuality.
But the pearl of sexual desire is meant to grow and come to its full beauty in the grace and truth of God, its maker, and then be taken and placed in the golden pendant of marriage. Or, for those who are called to go the way of celibacy, the pearl of sexual desire is meant to be a kind of atomic ball-bearing in the wheels of human creativity.
Some good sage words..

The simple yet thought-provoking 5 words are ministering to me today. I wonder if we change our minds about failure, we could alter our destinies. Sometimes, it is meant to simply set us free. @ Battlefield of the Mind https://www.instagram.com/p/CSPoXHULzda/?utm_medium=twitter
When Pharaoh finally let the people go, God DID NOT LEAD them along the main road that runs through Philistine territory, even though that was the SHORTEST route to the Promised Land….” — Exodus 13:17
The God of Peace is wanting to give you peace.. No matter what’s the struggle or situation, PEACE is available in the midst of the storm
JOY is greater than our trials and circumstances. JOY creates an atmosphere for our miracles. JOY is an enabler of Faith. Choose JOY today despite what is going on around you.
The reason we don’t lose our righteousness is because of our position (with God) not our performance (for God).
