It's advisable to scroll back to my two previous posts titled 'Dangerous consequences of masturbation ', and 'Practical Steps out of masturbation 1' if you have not read them so that this present article would find its base in your view. I trust God that by His spirit and mighty power in Christ's blood, everyone determined to quit will quit today IJMN.
2. Remove the following three misconceptions from your mind.
A. That you're using masturbation to solve a problem. The truth is that there is no problem anywhere in the first place. Like every other forms of s3xual immorality the challenge is in managing our mind and eyes. A long mental work is done to create the problem that would eventually lead to the very act. Ask an addict, he has to think of a lady or a man as the case may be, sometimes peep at her/ his window or bathroom, watch a blue film or pornographic materials to create the arousal. So in the final analysis, there was no problem anywhere, the addict creates the problem and now sets out to solve it.Stop creating problems that may kill your life and destiny.
B. The second misconception is that it's impossible to stop. This is a lie of the devil. There are many testimonies of people who woke up one morning and said I will never do this again by the grace of God. And that grace has been sufficient. A young man shared how he was caught in the hostel by housemater doing self service and the parents were summoned. They took him home and shared some of the steps we have been discussing here and prayed, and that was the end till today. Once masturbation is confronted from within,it abates.
C. The third misconception is that it's more pleasurable than the real thing. This is another lie of the devil. One thing is sure, the act is a product of wasted emotion and affection. The victim fantasizes of a person that is not available to appreciate the feelings. Tell your partner what puts you on. Find out also what excites your partner. Make up your mind to follow each other's foreplay PRESCRIPTIONS and you would be back to real form of s3xual Eldorado.
3. Review your last year set goals and note the percentage of achievement you made. If you didn't set any goals at all, then know that you're condemning yourself to a life of average at it's best. This is the time to realise that this addiction has been to a large extent responsible for your low output in life. You have not been allowed to think through your daily, weekly, monthly and annual plan in the format of goals setting. How long is life on earth that you would continue to live it on a vicious cycle?
4. Recall how it all started and declare it all ends now. One young man said it was a picture he saw in Facebook, one said a friend taught him in the school bathroom, another said it was the mother's house boy; however it came, the expiration time is now. Ask God to help in the way you pray to Him. You can support your decision with a fast and meditation on these steps. And God who did it for others will do it for you now IJN.
Thanks for reading to the end.
