2 Corinthians 12:7-9:
7 And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. 8 For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. 9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
Today we are going to be engaging powerful prayers to overcome self stimulation. Self stimulation is a process where which one reaches orgasms through the self stimulation of his or her genitals. Self stimulation is very common among teenagers and young adults. Most people get there first intimate experience from self experimenting or self stimulation. Now the question is this , Is self stimulation a sin? The answer is Yes and No, therefore the final answer is yes. This is because, according to the law of mathematics, positive and negative equals negative. Now why did I say “yes and no” ?. Self stimulation is a sin because it is rooted in lust. You cannot engage in it without having a mental picture of lust in your mind. Most people mix self stimulation with adult movies which further enhances there fantasy. Lust is a sin as it leads to fornication and adultery, therefore self stimulation is a sin. I said “no” because by self stimulation, you are not harming anybody physically and you are not also harming yourself physically or medically. In other wards,there is no physical or medical harm connected to self stimulation but Spiritually its a sin and that is all that matters. I hope you get my point.
Self stimulation is a powerful addiction among Christians, an unbelievable amount of believers in Christ secretly indulge in this act. Its a concern among many believers as they have tried all manner of spiritual exercises to overcome it but all to no avail.They have prayed, fasted, confessed the word of God etc but nothing seems to be happening and they are frustrated. I am here to tell you today,do not worry, God is not mad at you. The reason why you are frustrated is because you are trying to stop masturbation by your own strength. You think that your ability to pray or fast is going to set you free, it won’t. Only the grace of God can set you free from self stimulation. One thing this prayers to overcome self stimulation will teach you today is to depend on Gods grace.
Paul the apostle had a similar challenge as a believer, he called it a thorn on His flesh, he prayed three times for God to remove it, but God told Him ” my grace is sufficient for you,my strength is made perfect in your weakness” what a word of encouragement. Jesus was telling him, do not let the things you can’t change frustrate you, rather depend on my strength to be set free. Paul had rest from then on. This prayer reminds me of serenity prayer. If you are addicted to self stimulation as a Christian, you need the grace of Jesus, His grace is sufficient for you, He is not mad at you, He will never reject you or forsake you, He will always be there to carry you up when you are down and His strength becomes visible when you are weak. Therefore receive His grace to stand strong in Him. Hebrews 4:16.
But one may ask, How can the grace of God help me overcome self stimulation? The grace of God is Gods unmerited favour, it is also the strength of God. Every time you fall in to the sin of self stimulation, rise up and declare that ” the grace of God is sufficient for me and His strength is made manifest in my weakness” keep receiving His grace in time of need and also be at rest, do not struggle with it, just let the grace of God in you overwhelm you, its only a matter of time, you will see the urge of self stimulation die in your life in Jesus name. Now we are going to engage in some powerful prayers to overcome self stimulation. This prayers will help you activate the grace of God in your life to overcome these sin.
