Bible Reading: 1 Thessalonians 4:3–4, 1 Corinthians 6:19–20

Memory VerseAnd said, “You who are full of all deceit and fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease to make crooked the straight ways of the Lord? Acts 13:10 (NASB)

To masturbate is to excite one’s genitals, many times to the point of orgasm. This often leads to an addiction and many have been caught in this evil web. It is an aberration from the standard of God. Sex toys, “fingering”, etc. are some of the methods employed to masturbate. More than ever before, this generation is more sexually active and it is done with gross impunity. The family and the media share the greatest blame. How do you break free from masturbation?

1. Repentance: Beloved, sex is only fun in the context of a Christian marriage between a man and a woman. Any other form of sex is a sin against God and your own body. Tell God you are sorry.

2. Be genuinely born again: Accept or rededicate yourself to Jesus as your personal Lord and saviour.

3. Expel the spirit behind masturbation: Anointing breaks the yoke (Isaiah 10:27).

4. Stand your ground on righteousness: Deliverance is progressive. The Bible makes it clear that the evil spirit will always want to come back. So, fill yourself with Word of God by:

I) Reading the Word of God daily.

II) Meditating on the Word of God daily: Think about these scriptures – I am the righteousness of God (2 Cor. 5:21), I am crucified with Christ… (Gal. 2:20), I have been given power to tread upon snakes and scorpions (Luke 10:19), I reckon my body dead to sin (Rom 6:11). 

III) Confessing the Word of God daily: Open your mouth and declare what you meditated upon. You put angels to work in your mind and in your environment by so doing.

5. Cut off from any trigger point: Your old sinner friends, erotic novels, erotic magazines, erotic audio and videos, pornographic sites, etc., must be laid aside.

6. Be productively engaged: An idle hand is the devil’s workshop.

7. Fellowship with the brethren: Don’t miss Bible study, Prayer meetings, evangelical outreaches, personal and collective retreats, Christian conferences, etc. All these will strengthen your faith. You become more like God when you do the things of God.

8. Personal Discipline: Be careful of what you see and hear. Let the Holy Spirit be your guide. Also, try not to be alone for too long a time.

9. Heart-felt Prayers: Sometimes, until you are very tired of a problem, and you cry out to God in desperate personal prayers laying flat on the floor, your victory over besetting sins may not be in view.

10. Be accountable: Tell your man of God, your godly parents, godly guardian, or Christian relative or neighbour who can hold you accountable. You need a God figure to deal with sexual sins.

11. Don’t give up on yourself: Should you sometimes backslid in your fight against porn, reject self condemnation and self guilt; and fight again (Hebrews 12:4). Your victory is sure in Jesus.

Quote: Lust is the captivity of the reason and enraging of the passions. It hinders business and distracts counsel. It sins against the body and weakens the soul – JeremyTaylor.

Prophetic Decree: By the reason of the anointing, enter into your liberty, in Jesus name.

Prayer Focus

1. I repent and confess my sins of masturbation, and rededicate my life to Jesus, in Jesus name.

2. I bring my mind under the control and influence of the Holy Spirit, in Jesus name.

3. I break the grip masturbation in my life, in Jesus name.

4. I shut down any door I have opened for the devil in my life, in Jesus name.

5. Holy Spirit, possess my life, my thoughts and my heart, in Jesus name.
