“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men…” (v18)

If you want to be free you must be willing to challenge all definitions of your masculinity. You have to be willing to confront issues that other men run from. Freedom only comes when you challenge yourself, when you open up and say things to yourself that you might not have admitted to your wife, to your friends, or to your parents. It is time to confront old issues. These issues are enemies of your soul. If anything takes you back, it will be the enemy within. The Bible says, “Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God… and even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient” (Rom 1:21,28) You would be disturbed by what is lurking in the shadows of your being. In fact, you’ll be shocked to know what your best friends and family members have done, but haven’t told anyone. Men can be incredibly hypocritical. We often strongly condemn others for the very things we are most guilty of ourselves. The greatest and most lethal weapon the enemy can ever challenge you with is you. Thousands of men once believed they could never cheat on their income tax or their wives, but they did. When you do not assess the potential of sin within, you will not pray against these things. It inevitably leaves you vulnerable to the attack of the enemy. (T.D Jakes)
