Purity Prayer Challenge Day 7
Hello ladies! It's been a week since the challenge started and I hope it's been a blessing to you! So today I want to discuss a topic that's a little uneasy for you to talk about but it's something I feel needs to be discussed. The topic is masturbation. Growing up I always heard it releases stress and it causes no harm. Well, it causes harm to God and yourself. Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body (1 Corinthians 6:18). Masturbation is nothing but a selfish act! It's only pleasing yourself and not God! I understand your hormones or loneliness may get to you but you HAVE to rebuke those thoughts! Find an accountability partner, journal to God, listen to worship music, put a reminder on your phone to rebuke those devilish thoughts! Do whatever you have to do to not be tempted. 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 (Corinthians 10:13). God won't allow you go trough this alone but you have to bring it God! Go in prayer about this issue! If you are on social media, I suggest following, nosexmovement on twitter, instagram, and facebook. They also have a nosexmovementladies on twitter. Dear God, rid us of those lusty thoughts! Fill our mind with thoughts of you so we won't have to succumb to temptation! Strengthen those ladies dealing with the sin of masturbation. Let them know that they aren't' alone! Help us to keep each other lifted up and accountable, Lord! We love you! In Jesus name we pray, Amen!
