Infatuation is Dangerous

By Jasmine Stribling

Both men and women are plagued with infatuation. We are infatuated with material possessions, careers, people, social media, the opposite sex. You name it, we can become infatuated with it.The dictionary definition of infatuation is an intense but short- lived passion or admiration for someone or something. For the purposes of this post, I would define it as temporary emotions that suppress your ability to rationalize and make judgements clearly. Essentially, infatuation causes us to make bad decisions based on temporary emotions.

A place of infatuation is the breeding ground for the desires of our flesh to grow stronger. For example, you may buy a car because it’s your dream car or because you feel you have to get it right now. Or you date a guy because you really desire companionship/marriage but the desire causes you to settle and/or date around.

Both of these things can lead to HUGE headaches down the road when you finally realize these were poor decisions and you are calling on God to rescue you

Galatians 5:16 says, “So I say, walk by the spirit and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh”. So when you start to feel any of these emotions, don’t make decisions. Choose wisely when you get obsessed with something or someone. Pull out the word of God or call on friends of wisdom who have a sound mind.

Ladies, we can make our emotions submit. We can conquer the flesh. Some days and some things will be easier than others but keep on trying even when you fail. Don’t allow the enemy to gain an inch in your territory.Protect your heart and mind above all else.
