One of Satan’s greatest tactics over the centuries has been lying to men about intimacy. Sharing openly and honestly with other men in connected relationships is not weak – it’s Christlike. The truth is, it is CRITICAL to our freedom that we allow God to bring good Christian friendships into our lives. We are only allowed ONE intimate female relationship, so it is a must that we find some trustworthy guys with whom we can share our struggles. We’ll need them to walk with us, pray for us, and hold us accountable.
Isolation in a battle of this magnitude is NOT an option! Peter tells us “our enemy, the devil roams about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour.” I know from personal experience that the lone wildebeest at the back of the herd always gets eaten. Are you all alone with your secrets? If so, you are in trouble. You do not have to be alone any longer. You can find the relationships you will need in Walking Free. Isolation is not an option on the path to freedom.
