Allow God’s wisdom to lead you and His power to sustain you. Read books and pray so much. Don’t stop praying, don’t stop studying, untill you are free from this, don’t stop. Remember do not think masturbation, replace it with the thoughts of God’s word. God Almighty our Father of great love and mercy see us through and by His Grace keep us and sustain us.
I have been married for more than three decades and for all that time e I have seen the expression singles need to find a healthy way to express their sexuality
It so very difficult as it is for many of us single guys just to get a date, let alone having a steady girlfriend these days. Many women have their very high unrealistic expectations and standards now, unlike the past when women back then were the very complete opposite of today which made love very easy to find back then.
Maybe I’m missing something, but what are those ways? No one ever goes the next step and says what they are. I am familiar with one way as I Am sure most singles feel there is one way to express that part of themselves. Before I got married that was the only way I ever imagined that could be expressed in a healthy way. So what are these ways that no one seems willing to explain?
I’m a 33 year old woman, never dated, and currently still single. I have struggled with masturbation since I was a teenager. After I talked to my mom about it and we prayed, I didn’t struggled so much for many years. But recently, the past couple years I have faced defeat after defeat. When I research biblical answers from teachers like Focused on the Family, I get mixed opinions. Of course, it’s something my flesh desires so I am constantly looking for loop holes although I know it’s wrong. I am tired of guilt and shame and violating God’s design. I’m at a loss…I don’t know what to do. I could really use a good mentor and accountability partner but one has been really hard to find.
Are you plugged into a church? I have found that it can be difficult to find a mentor if I am not actively part of a church. Many churches even have ministries devoted specifically to this!
I will be praying that you are able to find a mentor or ally soon. Do not give up! Blessings, Moriah
Let’s all remember there’s a price to pay for either abstaining from sex till marriage or give in to sexual fornication
This article has really helped me, now I’m calmer about it, just a little help or advice too, when you pray to God to deliver you, be intentional that you want to drop it, after crying for mercy, rebuke the spirit involved by name, eg; I rebuke you spirit of masturbation in Jesus name. This is what I did after one masturbation bout with holy anger I REBUKED IT that was the last day it troubled me, do same for porn, fantasies etc God bless you, you’ll will overcome, it also have faith
Thanks for the article. Let’s continue to fight this urge as we honor God . God knows everything and he’s aware of the struggle we going through but he has given us the will to choose. There are consequences attached to either choices also. So we’ve got to choose one and stick to it . Imagine yourself abstaining from sex till marriage,how will it feel like – no guilt, no worries , you don’t lose your relationship with God -its feels great right and more importantly the blessing that await us .
