Greetings dearly beloved. This article is targeted to address sexual urges and desires. You know, people say, if God put the sexual feelings and desires in man, why then is it unacceptable/sinful to satisfy those desires as one pleases (outside wedlock)?

Now, there's something you need to understand, it is one thing to be hungry, and it is another thing to be a glutton; It is one thing to want to sleep, and it is another thing to be a sluggard; It is one thing to have sexual urge, and it's another thing to commit fornication. - Selah

Yes GOD placed these urges and desires in man, but God also placed the confinement in which they should be fulfilled. It's the same God that put in man the desire to sleep, yet it's the same God that teaches us not to be sluggards. So, that you want to sleep is no reason to become ineffective by incessant sleeping. - Selah

'Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep:
So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man.' - Proverbs 6 vs 10 - 11 {KING JAMES VERSION}

God put in us the desire to sleep, yet He doesn't want us to be lazy. You see... There are boundaries and confinements to these things. - Selah

'Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh:
For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.' - Proverbs 23 vs 20 - 21 {KJV}

You can see from these Bible verses that, having the natural desire to eat is not a license to be a glutton; having the natural desire to sleep is not a license to be a sluggard;

'O my son, be wise and stay in God’s paths; don’t carouse with drunkards and gluttons, for they are on their way to poverty. And remember that too much sleep clothes a man with rags.' - Proverbs 23 vs 19 - 21 {TLB}

Here, we see the two words used,

  • Glutton
  • Too much sleep

Likewise on sexual desires - yes God placed sexual desire in man, it's only natural to feel like having sex, but God gave the boundary in which those sexual desires should be fulfilled, and He called it "Marriage". - Selah

'Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.' - 1 Corinthians 6 vs 18 {KJV}

  • Flee fornication
This tells us that our natural sexual feelings are no excuse for illegal sex.

'But if you can't control yourselves, go ahead and marry. It is better to marry than to burn with lust.' - 1 Corinthians 7 vs 9 {TLB}

  • If you can't control yourselves, go ahead and marry
This clearly shows to us that marriage is the confinement God has designed for sexual desires to be fulfilled. If you can't control yourself, get married! not fornication! Marriage is the ground for the fulfillment of sexual desires.

So you see beloved, never be misled by your natural feelings to do that which is against the will of God. Just because you feel it doesn’t mean you should fulfill it just anytime. No! Yes God placed those feelings there, but He also placed the boundaries and confinements for their fulfillment. So like we read in the above Bible passage, if you cannot control yourself, get married! Marriage is the ground where sexual desires are satisfied.

So, yes you will eat, but you will not be a glutton; you will sleep, but you will not be a sluggard; of course sex was made for you, but you will do it in the confinement that God made for it - Marriage.

Think on these words, and remain obedient, as obedient children of the living God. Amen.

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.

- Jenning U. Angel
