I was sitting here reviewing a conversation that I had with a group of young adults recently and I thought I would share a few tidbits with all of you today. My hope is that it helps someone break loose from things that may be binding them in their spirit.

Today’s Prayer

Father, Today I’m thinking of marriages. You started out putting one man and one woman together to help each other through life and to begin a family to love and nurture and replenish the earth. This is the traditional family as You intended. I pray for those who seek to redefine marriage as any other union, that You will open their eyes and show them the truth. I pray that the Truth will set them free. I pray for couples who are married, that You will anoint their marriages and help them to have good communication and to think of each other’s needs first and to always lift each other up. The world is there to knock us down. Above anyone else, spouses should lift one another up. I pray that my relationships with family and friends will be healthy and will honor You. Thank You, Father, for loving me and accepting me into Your family through the atoning blood of Jesus. In His name I pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.


When you see things you desire, do you just have to have them right then and there? Are you consumed with obtaining material possessions? Are your motives for attaining things always based on what makes you happy, leaving little consideration for other people’s wants and needs? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you may be operating in lust.


  For too long, there has been a misconception that lust relates only to sex. Sexual lust is very common, but there are many different types of lust. Lust can be defined as any overwhelming or intense desire. Excessive eating, out-of-control spending and an unquenchable appetite for pornography are just some of the addictions that people battle each day. The Bible states that men look at the outward appearance, but God looks at the heart (1 Samuel 16:7). When God examines your heart, what does He see?

 The root of lust is selfishness, which can also be described as self-gratification. Lust seeks to erode relationships, self-esteem and in some cases, financial wealth. Willpower is often society’s answer to overcoming destructive habits, but as long as people keep God on the outside, refusing to seek His help for their problems, they will never experience true freedom.  

 You have the ability to conquer temptation. Beginning with your thoughts, you can set your mind toward the Word of God and escape lust once and for all. Make a commitment to conquer the addictions in your life. Trust that God will release the Holy Spirit to break the stronghold of addiction in your life.

Quote of the Day

When the Bible talks about knowing God, it does not mean knowing certain ideas about Him, but knowing Him personally. The word know in Hebrew means knowledge that comes from a close, personal relationship. ‘This is eternal life that they may know Thee – the only true God – and Jesus Christ Whom Thou hast sent.’ “Know Thee,” not ‘about Thee.’ Knowing about God or Christ does not save, does not give eternal life. Knowing Christ does. ~Anthony M. Coniaris~
