DOUBLE DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL

CAN YOU CONTROL YOUR PASSIONS❓
Our devotional today is centered on the story of Judah and Tamar. This story is sandwiches in between the story of Joseph as a contrast to the possibilities that lie ahead of those who control their sexual passions and those who fail to do so. While Joseph, as we see in Genesis 39, maintained his sexual integrity and eventually become great, Judah failed to control his sex drive and lost a critical place in destiny.
Judah was Tamar’s father-in-law, as she was earlier married to his son named Er. However, rather maintain a holy father-in-law’s relationship with Tamar, Judah got Tamar impregnated. It is instructive to note that Judah acknowledged that there is no free sex and so he pledged to offer the young lady a young goat from his flock. Hence, he deposited his signet, bracelet and staff. And he eventually lost these three things as the lady disappeared after the act. Those three things represent the losses people suffer when they involve themselves in illicit sex: endorsement, wealth and authority. Do not let it happen to you this year.
Judah failed to watch his actions and this had dire consequences. A lot of people, including Christians, behave like this too. They failed to watch their actions. They take actions that clearly defy the scriptures, hurt other people and bring shame and sorrow to themselves and others. There is, therefore, need for us to always reconsider all actions before we take them. Let’s make up our minds to live by the standards of God’s word and we shall be blessed as we do.
CONTROLLING THOUGHTS :
My actions must be good, as I mind and controls my PASSIONS
May my actions bring glory to God and humanity. Amen.
