There are some things discipline can not and will not do, they have stronghold on you than discipline. It’s good to be discipline but discipline has it limit. Masturbation is one thing I find out that nearly 70-90% of guys are involved in it. A lot want to stop but can’t, in fact some has discipline themselves and made vows to God to stop, writing date everywhere on the wall of the house to be the last date they will stop. Have been there before!
Masturbation encroaches the heart, it eat up your strength by subtly given you reasons to go and enjoy yourself, so long you’re not having Sex with the opposite Sex. Well, don’t be surprise when you see a grown up man and you tell ask him about masturbation and he tells you that’s his first time of hearing that word, I knew someone that did.
Erotic stimulation especially of one’s own genital organs commonly resulting in orgasm and achieved by manual or other bodily contact exclusive of sexual intercourse, by instrumental manipulation, occasionally by sexual fantasies, or by various combinations of these agencies.
Some go through this with the use of lotion creams, soaps, something very soft to keep them arouse, then a picture of a pornography that they have watched. This will look exciting to them but it’s the darkness covering the eyes of man.
The Truth is even ladies do masturbate, but this is one thing that is common among guys from ages of 13 even to adulthood and ladies from ages of 15 to adulthood. It’s such a thing that affect mostly all guys. And like I said many do not know how to come out of it. Many times, you really need someone to talk to especially someone that can help. It’s hard for you to find someone that is proud to say he masturbate but if he does I believe darkness has covered his eyes. Such may even tell you he needs no help.
I was led to a dinner one day in a particular church on campus and I know that the protocol guy that directed me to the sit I sat was not just ordinary but I believe it was divinely arranged. Got talking with folks I met at that table for which I actually came for a spy of their dinner for mine. We got talking and we said some things on kissing then somehow we talked on masturbation and then I opened up the floor. “I know that how to help a man THAT NEEDS HELP is not by giving him more injury but by showing him your scar” after the talk the friend opened up. I never condemned him, I just told him have been there before and then the look tells he is facing the challenge and I said to him to read Romans 6 everyday which he did and actually helped him.
I was introduced to masturbation in Secondary School by a friend then, on the note that you’ll hate ladies, for which at that time, I was so shy to talk to a lady. When it comes to something about darkness, the promises you heard that made you do a thing will engulf your heart and then validate that thing. That’s darkness for you. I knew even at that time that it was affecting my concentration in school, really it affect you psychologically except you stop it. I know what am saying. A guy was found doing such in an open environment, it takes of how he was so involved in it. The common story is always “I don’t know what came on me” well, am sure some guys will have said that numbers of time.
The Truth is don’t fool yourself, if you’re in such a case, I know it’s a secret thing. But really you need help, not even on the note that it affects the psychologically but before it will give you wounds that you asked for. I stand boldly to say, there is no gain in it. It takes your confidence in yourself away than you could believe, it’s subtle. Discipline and vows will not help. You need Jesus. I know some of my strong friends that were involved in it, but one common testimony we all had was that I don’t know how it left me I just realized I stopped. The Truth is, there were times we all cried to God. See, even if you pray and you still fall into it, still keep praying (don’t say it doesn’t work) and study the word, to help you cleanse your heart. Your heart need first a cleansing by the washing of the water by the word. I say again, disciplining yourself to stop will not work you really need help. In fact some will give some counsel to go to Sex workers. Kai! That is not the cure my friend! Once you’re alone that same spirit and urge will come get yourself on. In fact, there were times I got talking with friends and I just excused myself and then off to masturbation. You need Jesus and to be cleanse by the washing of water by the word of God.
You can read Roman 6 daily and pray because Jesus said:
Luke 22:40 And when he was at the place, he said unto them, PRAY THAT YE ENTER NOT INTO TEMPTATION.
The Truth is the temptation will always come, it will and it will, but to avoid is by practically praying for help and reading that Romans 6. See this
1 Peter 1:22 Seeing ye have PURIFIED YOUR SOULS IN OBEYING THE TRUTH through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:
John 17:17 Sanctify them through THY TRUTH: THY WORD IS TRUTH.
John 15:3 NOW YE ARE CLEAN THROUGH THE WORD WHICH I HAVE SPOKEN unto you.
Go get Jesus word from scriptures that’s your healing.
