Firstly we know that it is humanly impossible for us to change without God's divine help. Before we knew God, the Bible teaches that we had a heart of stone (Ezekiel 11:19). We must ask God for a new heart through faith in Jesus Christ. Then the Holy Spirit is given to us as a gift to keep us close to God and help us live a new life in Christ. You need to rely fully on God for help to change. Prayer is the first thing we need to do.

I know most of you really want to quit this act completely but to be honest with you the ct of masturbation is the most powerful weapon the devil is using now to lead God's children into eternal condemnation.

I'm going to highlight some point for you to follow to totally be free from this bondage, and i strongly believe most of you will be free from it if you strictly adhere to them.

1) Having a strong strong relationship with God

This is the first step you must take to have victory, having a strong relationship with God means ,joining a bible believing church, reading your scriptures daily and praying often. Doing so will create a strong relationship between you and God and believe me ,he is going to fight your wars for you. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

2) Set your bible to a place you can see daily

Doing this will enable you read your scriptures everyday and overcome the temptation, any time the urge knocks in ,just be very quick to touch your bible and i know this step will work effectively for some of you but remember the devil will try other means to distract from reading it, but please be always vigilant, the devil doesnt have a body to appear infront of you and tempt you, he uses the way you think against you and that means reading the scriptures will channel you to have a very strong mind and you will surely overcome.

3) Avoid fornication

This step is going to be hard for the unmarried ones ,but you must know your soul is at stake here and in you must also know you are in a very big battle with the devil and in other for you to overcome you must quit fornication. Yes its good to have a girlfriend or a boyfriend but so far he or she isnt your married partner ,you cant have sex together. The bible talks against fornication and it tells us that in order to avoid fornication one must get married.

4) Having a God fearing partner

Having a boyfriend,girlfriend ,wife or husband who is very strong in the worshiping of God can really help you quit this sinful act, like i mention above that partner will ensure you don t commit fornication together and he or she will definitely wait for the right time and if if they cant ,he or she is not really a God fearing one.

5) Identify your triggers

 An external trigger might be spotting a racy billboard on the way to work or a seeing a plunging neckline. Learning to bounce our eyes away from these sort of triggers can be very helpful.

But it is our internal triggers that are the hardest to run from, because they are…well…in us.We might turn to masturbation as our refuge, our stress-reliever. Stress and anxiety ultimately come from our reactions to stressful situations or circumstances. Why do we react to stressors the way we do? We react with stress because of what we believe about the stressors, the significance we place on them. We need to ask ourselves: What do I believe that makes this situation or circumstance or condition stressful for me? Identify what lies you believe about the stressor and then diligently replace those lies with truth.Our trigger might be anger at God. Perhaps we are dissatisfied at the way our life has turned out, so we blame God. We turn to masturbation as our own private activity that grasps for a pleasure all our own, a corner of life we claim as wholly ours, a way to rebel. Again, the battle is one of faith: Why do we believe God owes us anything? Why do we think we ought to get what we desire?

This prayer is for a person who is addicted to sex. Any behavior that is “driven” is demonic and the person needs to be delivered. It starts with repentance.

Lord, Jesus save me and cleanse me from all unrighteousness and make me as white as snow that i may glorify You with my life from this day forth. Wash me in Your Blood. Create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit within me O Lord. Father, I thank You for saving me and delivering me from this pit! I'm so grateful! Let the Kingdom of God come into my life now in Jesus Christ mighty name. AMEN AND AMEN!

If you want to stop masturbating then you need to understand that the Bible teaches we must trust in God for help on all issues of sin, temptation and lust. Don't let shame hinder you from breaking free, talk to your leader about it and i promise you with the help of the almighty God, you are to be free.
