How Can I Concentrate on My Deliverance When the World Celebrates Gays?

How Can I Concentrate on My Deliverance When the World Celebrates Gays?

This is a very important question and the issue is one that  ex-homosexuals deal with day after day in their walk with Christ. As ex-homosexuals, we know all too well how difficult it can be with the ever increasing need for the homosexual community to seen and accepted under false pretenses.

Now during our walk with Jesus, and the acceptance of our deliverance from Him, we have stepped into a realm of spiritual warfare. For the bible states in Ephesians 6:12:
"For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and power, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places." 
This realm of spiritual warfare is a continual battle against Satan and his desire to sift us as wheat. (Luke 22:31). The enemy Satan still wants our souls even as we have left 'his world of sin' and committed our lives to Christ. The battle to win our souls over Christ will never cease because he wants to take over the world.

The enemy knows that if he can use as many distractions as he can to try and discourage even the ex-homosexual who knows the truth with:

1) legalization of gay marriages and civil unions
2) the 'coming out' testimonies of homosexuals
3) the changing of laws to include gay rights
4) the implementation of gays and lesbians in the media industry
5) even teen suicide of those ostracized for being gay

Satan is banking on these obstacles to compound our spirit so we may backslide and no longer believe in the fight for righteousness and our deliverance from God. He wants us to feel this is a lost generation and that there is no hope for them. The enemy hates that we have walked away and that we despise him. The bible reminds us: “If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.” (John 15:19). The hatred of sin and our love for God is evident and we must recognize the enemy's trap.

But Satan is a liar as stated in John 8:44. For we chose God as our personal savior and Lord. He gives us strength in the midst of storms and He told us to be strong and courageous because he would never leave us. Deuteronomy 31:6. Since we know that the enemy is on an assignment to take our souls to hell with him, we have to stay in God's word.

God's word, the bible, will comfort and lead anyone that has been delivered from homosexuality. As ex-homosexuals, we have to continue to read the word of God and be reminded of his grace and goodness. 
Just as we had to do when we were first saved, we must do now. Many of us stayed in our bibles and surrounded ourselves with Godly people who kept us encouraged while we started our walk with Jesus. We have to continue to the same now and even more. By reading the word of God daily, we develop a renewed since of faith and how He gives us strength to move forward in times like these.

These are evil times and for some of us, homosexuality was not as prevalent when we lived the lifestyle as it is today. Having prayer everyday with God is essential in staying in the spirit of God so we can ask God for strength and guidance and be bold as a lion as we help others who are trapped in the homosexual lifestyle. We have to remember that God has given us a purpose and we have to fulfill it because He saw fit to save us. By staying in prayer, we are reminded of how God saved us from our past sinful ways and that we have an obligation to stay on the right track ignoring distractions of this world. Our perseverance and witnessing of God's love will make all the difference to the many souls that need help out of the homosexual lifestyle. So concentrating on witnessing to others, will keep the distractions from affecting our purpose.

God never said our walk would be easy in fact He told us we would be persecuted for living a life for Him. But if we keep our minds on our purpose and not the distractions of Satan's plans, we will be able to fulfill God law and live in it as examples for our children's children.

If you are struggling with homosexuality and want a way out, don't believe the negative hype. You CAN be delivered from being gay, God will do it for you as you come to Him with a open and humble heart. Please visit us True Ex-Gay Talk page to request an appointment to speak with T. Marie.
