Pornography is a powerful medium- strong enough to shape your future. That is because pornography can become a form of worship, and worship determines our destiny.
The things we worship are the things we value most. Many of us consider our relationship with God as paramount, and direct our worship accordingly. The things we value most are the things that receive our concentrated energy, which in turn produces “fruit” in our lives.
Old testament Israel had it’s problems. At some point they developed a sex worship problem. The prophet Jeremiah said that Israel had “played the harlot”.
A life is either all spiritual or not spiritual at all. No man can serve two masters. Your life is shaped by the end you live for. You are made in the image of what you desire. -Thomas Merton
Today you will face decisions regarding lust. A little decision shapes a little bit of your future. Whether or not you choose to bounce your eyes away from that little temptation- that image, will shape your near-term future.
“It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.” -Anthony Robbins
Hunkering down for a porn ride shapes even more of our future. Do you believe you can keep it under control? Most addicts start out feeling that way. Butthings can get ugly.
Prepare yourself every day for the temptations that will come. Spend time alone with God to strengthen your spirit. “No trumpets sound when the important decisions of our life are made. Destiny is made known silently.” -Agnes DeMille
Your future is ahead of you. We become more and more like what we worship.
