Costly Exchange In Adultery

Costly Exchange In Adultery

Reading Time: 2 minutes

COUPLES –

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.

Questions You Need To Ask Him Before Saying Yes – Part 4

Questions You Need To Ask Him Before Saying Yes – Part 4

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Are you still following the series? These questions are necessary to ask before you conclude that you’ve met your soul mate.

7. Habits

What are his habits? Be specific and ask directly.

Do you drink?

Do you smoke?

Do you club?

If the answer to the above is in the affirmative, you obviously are not on the same page.

Don’t become partners with those who reject God. How can you make a partnership out of right and wrong? That’s not partnership; that’s war. Is light best friends with dark?

2Co 6:14 (MSG) 

There is nothing to pray about, there is no need to pray that God would change him for you because nothing can happen until he makes up his mind.

If he says no, he doesn’t do all of these and then you discover later, run for your dear life.

Did you miss out on yesterday’s devotional, we’ve got you covered. Kindly go HERE. For KHC video Devotionals, kindly go HERE

Run because he has the capacity to be untruthful. Insincerity and adultery are cousins! They hang out together.

If he says, yes, but he would change later after the wedding, he is unlikely to change! Marriage is not a change agent.

Also, be careful of those who want to change because of you, not because they feel it is wrong. They would go back there later!

Also, be careful of people who say you should change them. You cannot change anybody. You are not the Holy Spirit.

8. Sexual Compromise

What is his disposition to sex before marriage?

If he believes there is nothing wrong with it, he is more or less telling you that he would defile you before the wedding day. He is already telling you that he would put pressure.

Nothing is as frustrating as loving a man that doesn’t love God. Nothing is as agonizing as to have given your heart to a man who has not given his heart to God.

To be Continued…

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
I will marry rightly.

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Lord, help me to ask the right questions.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Isaiah 30:21 [KJV] And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.

ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY
Ask the right questions.

Practical Ways Singles Can Deal With Anger Issues

Practical Ways Singles Can Deal With Anger Issues

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Yesterday, we started on this topic on dealing with anger issues. If you misses the devotional, you can read it here.

If you are in a relationship with someone who flies off the handle easily, learn to seek help. Don’t just keep quiet and don’t think he would just change naturally. It takes deliberate efforts to realize and then change!

Don’t get angry together and at the same time! Learn to calm down for one another! Get books and read and deal with than anger so that you don’t end up raising angry children who will take the anger to another level.

If you are in a relationship wherein both of you have serious anger problems and are not patient with each other, that is not too good. Start working on it now, so that your coming together which is supposed to translate into strength will not be the other way round.

Pro 16:32 KJV
He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.

Here are practical ways to deal with problems of anger

1. Pray about it and ask God to help you by His Spirit

2. Seek help from your pastor or mentors

3. Stay in God’s word. Your soul can be restored when you meditate regularly in God’s word

4. Get good books that address the weakness and study

5. Discuss with your finance/spouse and look at how you can deal with the weakness

6. Learn to keep quiet when you are angry. You often say things you will regret later, but the words, like swords could have done the harm.

7. Do not make quick decisions while you are angry. Your sense of judgment is warped at such times.

8. Forgive easily. Don’t be revengeful and stubborn. Let God handle the situation for you.

9. Don’t allow anger and hurts to push you into sexual sins because you want get back at your ex or your spouse. That will complicate issues for you.

10. Don’t listen to someone who appears ‘nice’ and wants you to sin when you are hurting badly. It is usually a trap of the devil to complicate issues when a ‘nice’ person suddenly shows up when you are at loggerheads with your spouse. Be careful!

There are more, but I believe these practical ways will be of help.

I rebuke every spirit behind anger and wrath in your life, relationship and marriage in Jesus name. I pray for God’s help over you in Jesus name.

I am not an angry person. I am cool and level-headed. I am delivered from anger issues I might have been exhibiting.
