I have been an addict of musturbation almost for the rest of my past life. It has haunted me severely and affected me in every way. When I got born again, this addiction continued but a few times. I fought this battle for a long time. I couldn’t ask for help coz I knew it was a shame. I prayed to God to help me but he kept saying that
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
1 Corinthians 10:13
He keeps telling me this, time and again, I know it’s true, but to me it seems as though God gives little energy to resist the urge to sin and feel like praying for more strength (but inside I know am Wrong) I feel I need to blame someone for my wrong but who?
I keep doing the same thing again
For I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate.
There are many Christians who are addicts passing through the same fight as this but there is one wrong thing they normally do.
I Remember reaching a point of stopping to read the Bible and going to church coz of my guilt, I felt I can’t face God though I knew he would still. Forgive me but I felt it was to much I had done that God didn’t deserve me anymore but that made things worse. I kept dying more and more.
If this is what you are going through I request of one thing. Please any addiction you are fighting. I advise you to please never think running far away from God. As for me, when I learnt this, whenever I sinned, I said all sorry God and came closer to the church the more. The more I sinned, the more closer i came closer to the church and this has helped me to save me completely. I am no longer and addict not because if my might but because of God whom I went to closer when I sinned. So do the same and your addiction will Disappear.
NO ADDICTION CAN BE OVERCOME BY MAN’S EFFORT.
