What if God showed you all that you dreamed of is possible. What if he told you, that you could have everything you wanted in this life and more. The dream spouse, the dream house, the dream career, the dream job; better yet all of the above. But then He says, there is something that you are not letting go of, and so I can’t release these things to you, because that “thing” will mess it up. Would you let it go? If your answer is yes, then what’s stopping you?

While watching an interview with Hollywood producer and author DeVon Franklin, he said something so profound, that I had to think about it for myself. When asked about being celibate for 10 years, and how did he do it, his response was:

“I kept thinking, at the end of my life, if  God said to me, here’s what I wanted to do in your life, but because you had no  discipline in that area, here’s all I could do in your life. Would all the women that I would have exchanged my full destiny for be worth it? And for me personally, I said no. It wouldn’t have been worth it.”

For you, sex might not be the issue. It could be anything else that is a stumbling block between you and your destiny. But is it worth it? What are you willing to give up for the life you are destined to have?

“… Let us throw off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.” – Hebrews 12:1
