Higher Ground
Leaving Sexual Bondage


Sexual bondage has trapped many men, but women increasingly are being lured by temptations in a sexually permissive society. In fact, sexual bondage is one of Satan's chief ploys in undermining the Christian. If you are enslaved by sexual bondage, here is a way to find freedom through Christ.

  1. Ask God to reveal to you the first time you violated His moral law and began to give Satan ground in your life. In prayer, let God walk you through your life and acknowledge to Him all areas He brings to mind.

  2. Confess anything that needs to be confessed and ask God to restore your fellowship with Him in that area.

  3. Ask God to take back all ground given to the enemy through moral failure.

  4. Dedicate your body to the purpose of bringing glory to God (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). Start with your thought life and end with your sexual desires. Pray, "God, I thank You that You made me with these drives. I surrender them to Your control."

  5. Be on guard for the enemy to try and put you back under sexual bondage, and be ready to resist him…Focus on the consequences of sin, not the pleasure.

  6. Begin to memorize Scripture that you can use to resist the "bait" Satan will dangle in front of you to regain the ground you surrendered to God.
