In every sexual encounter, there is an exchange.

Let’s examine Genesis 38:16, 18

…And Judah turned unto her by the way and said, go to, I pray you, let me come in unto you: And she said what will you GIVE me, that you may come in unto me? And he said what pledge shall I give you? And she said, your SIGNET, and your BRACELETS and your STAFF that is in your hand. And he gave it her, and came in unto her, and she conceived by him. –Genesis 38:16, 18 (KJV)

This scripture shows that Judah made a certain exchange to have sex with this woman. He exchanged his Signet, Bracelets, and staff.

Signet: which signifies your AUTHORITY

Bracelets: which is your BEAUTY

Your Staff: represent STABILITY

Many people do not realize that at every compromise there is always an exchange. There is a lot of significance to the things he exchanged; apparently, he didn’t see it that way. Just like most people do not consider the things they give out at every compromise, for every sexual escapade either as a man/woman, you lose something.

You lose those three things each time you compromise in adultery or any other form of sexual perversion.

Every time you had a quickie that is misplaced, every time you thought you were having fun, every time you thought you were cheating on your spouse, some part of you actually die.

Let’s look at some of those words:

What PLEDGE shall I give you..?

The Hebrew word is ‘Arabon’ taken from a root word that means ‘in the sense of exchange.’

So it was actually an exchange! It was a transaction.

I pray you will not exchange your destiny because of lust! Esau exchanged his destiny over a plate of porridge and the Bible says he sought for it with tears later. We are advised not to be a fornicator, and a profane person like Esau was.

To be continued…

I have grace, wisdom, and diligence to build my marriage.

Father in the name of Jesus, I resist every hindrance to my success in my assignment.

So Jotham became mighty because he prepared his ways before the LORD his God. -2Chronicles 27:6 (KJV)

Write out all your attitudes, positive and negative. Find ways to improve on your good attitudes and eliminate the bad ones.

Luke 7
