Memory verse:     Flee also youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. 2 Timothy 2:22(NKJV)

Lust is an emotion or feeling of negative intense desire in the body. As a young person, there’s a natural desire to explore as a result of the changes happening in one’s body. As your body matures and you come of age, there is a tendency to be attracted to the opposite sex. This is where many make mistakes and fall into sin. It is at this stage of life that many throw caution to the wind as they begin to pursue after the feelings in their body. They begin to seek the opposite sex in order to satisfy this sexual desire.  

Paul told Timothy to flee (run away) from youthful lusts and that is the Word for you (2 Timothy 2:22). You are to run away from anything that will not make you do that which pleases God or that will make you sin against your body. This could mean you have to change your friends that may lure you into sin.

To escape the lust of this stage, you should develop an intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit. Secondly, be fervent in the service of God; get busy doing something for God. Thirdly, surround yourself with godly friends; friends that will add to your life and not those that will subtract from your life. Fourthly, every teenager is supposed to develop at least a skill from his/her natural talent. You could learn to play the piano, or blow the trumpet or even hand skills like tailoring, carpentry, hairdressing, etc. An idle man is the devil’s workshop.       

Action word:  Flee From Lust.

Prayer points:

  1. Foundational powers hunting my glorious destiny, die by fire, in the name of Jesus.
  2. I will not end my life on the altar of Jezebel, in the name of Jesus.
