Today we will be talking about POWERFUL PRAYERS TO OVERCOME SELF STIMULATION
Self stimulation is the stimulation of one’s own genitals for sexual pleasure; masturbation. It is also referred to as self-abuse. A type of masturbation, onanism. manual stimulation of the genital organs (of yourself or another) for sexual pleasure. According to American Psychological Association dictionary,it defines self stimulation as the act or process of inducing or increasing the level of arousal in oneself. It can be observed in various situations; for example, infants who are under stimulated may explore their surroundings or babble to themselves. Is self stimulation God’s will for our lives ?. It is said that God created human in pairs for Intimacy and fruitfulness. Some examples of self stimulation are masturbation,onanism, manual stimulation of the genital organs.
What does God says about self stimulation?
In Genesis 38vs 8-10, we read about the story of Onan who was told to sleep with His widowed sister in law but refused on the ground that the descendants will not be his own so whenever he slept with her he pours out the seed and won’t be able to fertilize the sister in law’s egg. The roman catholic church still condemns this act as a sin, but we know that there’s no place in the bible that masturbation was condemned by God. But still there are some works of the flesh that kills our spiritual mind and takes us far away from God.
If we have been indulging in self stimulation we should pray to God to help us stop with the habit and fill us with the holy spirit that is powerful and capable of taking over our mind and our soul and stop us from indulging what is against God’s will.
Masturbation is the experience of sexual orgasm produced by self-stimulation for sexual arousal and pleasure.
Some bible verses about self stimulation,( though there are no clear places in the bible where masturbation was pointed out as a sin)
1 Thessalonians 4:3-6 says, “It is God’s will that you should be sanctified; that you should avoid sexual immorality; that each of you should learn to control your own body in a way that is holy and honorable, not in passionate lust like the pagans, who do not know God.”
Proverbs 25:28 says, “A person without self-control is like a city with broken-down walls.
But where in the Bible does it point to masturbation as a sin? Well, it doesn’t. The closest we can come, in that context, is sexual immorality and lust.
