Sexual pressure is one of the challenges you will face as a young adult. As a result, it is important to overcome sexual pressure so that you will be able to save yourself from some of the many unpleasant consequences that come with it.

Many Christians are presently unusable by God because their flesh is still strong. That is why Jesus said that anyone who would come after him should deny himself. If you want to be used by God, you have to avail yourself to him so that he can work on you, and then, he can work with you. This is why I am talking about overcoming sexual pressure so that you can do business with God.

What causes sexual pressure?

The works of the flesh can cause sexual pressure

“Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.” ‬‬

Galatians‬ ‭5:19-21‬ ‭ESV

The flesh is the number one source of sexual pressure. So, in order to overcome sexual pressure, we will first need to figure out how to overcome the flesh. When we learn to overcome the flesh, our life’s foundations are going to be strong.

Evil spirits can cause sexual pressure

“Another angel, a second, followed, saying, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, she who made all nations drink the wine of the passion of her sexual immorality.””

Revelation‬ ‭14:8‬ ‭ESV‬‬

You need to understand that evil spirits are not the initiators of sexual pressure. Rather, what starts the temptation is our desires. The evil spirit only takes over after you have started it yourself. Do not expose yourself to evil things like pornography, fornication, adultery, masturbation and blame the devil because you kept exposing yourself and that opened the door for him to come through.

When you allow evil spirits take over it becomes very difficult to stop. Therefore, do not put yourself in that position. But if per adventure you are caught in the trap, the Lord Jesus will set you free.

What then can one do to overcome it?

What must you do to overcome sexual pressure?
