WATCH OUT FOR THE ESAU SYNDROME

We get tempted each day in this journey of Christianity, but God is faithful. If we get tempted by our lust, and fall into the temptation, it becomes Sin; from Sin- it leads to spiritual Death. Ladies, let's be watchful and guard our heart from lust of eyes, lust of flesh and pride of life. That fine guy at rehearsals, that guy you are always looking forward to chatting with, that man complimenting you at work. These are little ways it began, if we are not careful, it leads to Esau Syndrome! And we are in regrets with bitter tears. 


What is this Esau Syndrome? Trading away God's lifelong gift in order to satisfy a short-term appetite. Hebrews 12: 16-17(NIV), “See that no one is sexually immoral, or is godless like Esau, who for a single meal sold his inheritance rights as the oldest son. Afterward, as you know, when he wanted to inherit this blessing, he was rejected. Even though he sought the blessing with tears, he could not change what he had done. 

Trading away the glorious destiny God has given you for 5 minutes time of pleasure, for one beautiful devil at your rehearsals or at your place of work, or just because you have a little fight with your man, you are now falling into the trap/ temptation of the devil.

It's always just a short time, and God is faithful who would provide way of escape.

1st Corinthians 10:13(NIV) “No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it”.

God would always provide a way of escape; run, flee, change environment. Submit yourself to The Lord, resist the devil, shake him off and he would flee from you. Don't ruin your life and later be in regrets, and shed hot bitter tears.

See the way Esau sought his right from his father in regrets, shedding, hot bitter tears. But by then, it was already too late! I pray that would not be our portion in Jesus name...

Any man that wants to truncate your destiny for a short term appetite, run from such people. Help your man also; protect your Destiny and his. Remember the Esau syndrome and think of that glorious future you have ahead! Remain blessed...
