143/365: Fight For Your Purity



How can a young person stay on the path of purity? By living according to your word. ~ Psalm 119:9


Purity is so much more than a struggle against sexual tempations. Purity is the filter of everything flowing through a man's heart, mind, and soul. It is a condition -  a conviction.

Can a man reclaim his purity?  Absolutely!  Begin with God's forgiveness. Follow by forgiving yourself and overcome by crushing that feeling of shame.  Then attack every temptation with a plan.

The Plan:  With every moment of temptation, memorize and pray these words of psalmist's answer to the question he asked in 119:9...

PSALM 119: 10-12

10 I seek you with all my heart;
    do not let me stray from your commands.
11 I have hidden your word in my heart
    that I might not sin against you.
12 Praise be to you, Lord;
    teach me your decrees.
