Gospel film-maker and actor, Damilola Mike-Bamiloye once revealed how he was able to overcome lust and I believe we all could learn from him
Note that Damilola shared this testimony some years before he got married to his wife, Emmanuela Mike-Bamiloye.
According to the gospel film producer, he thought staying sexually pure is impossible especially as Jesus classified the lust of the eyes as a sin of adultery.
He said, “My Life is a testimony; a testimony of a young man God delivered from Lust.
I always thought it was impossible to stay clean, to be truly holy. Let’s face it, how can a “hot lady” with tempting features walk pass and you won’t look twice? To make matters worse Jesus classifies that simple look of ‘admiration’ as fornication of the heart. “Whaaaat!?” So I concluded, the standards of Jesus are too high.
Little did I know these were the lies of the devil to drag me deeper and deeper into immorality.”
Damilola Mike-Bamiloye attributed his freedom to the truth in the word of God, adding that he was delivered when he realized the strength in God’s words.
He said, “Deliverance hit me when I realized the truth. It was the truth that set me free. The truth is in God’s word.
I was weak when I feasted my eyes on what pleased my flesh but now I am strong when I feast my eyes on the power of God’s word.
On my own, I couldn’t overcome sexual immorality but when I allowed God’s word flood my heart it became a serpent and scorpion that I tread upon easily.
This is my story, this is my testimony. True freedom is in God’s Word.”
