How to Stop Masturbating. (10 Biblical And Powerful Steps)

The word masturbation is a highly argued topic in some places while to some, it is a subject that is to hard to discuss. Masturbation is as real as any other type of addiction and it’s a huge concern for many who are trapped into it and don’t know how to stop masturbating.

I have seen and also read quite a number of topics online on this subject and i have  discovered that so many in our society today do not see anything wrong with this subject, while some feel it’s healthy, others just see it as a stage in one’s life that will be outgrown.

There are a lot of people struggling to stop masturbation and that’s why i have decided to write something here that i believe can bring a total stop and liberation for this sinful habit.

Masturbation is just like any other habit and believe me, it can be stopped

Satan has always lied to many who are involved in masturbation and frolicking with sin that it doesn’t matter, you can quit whenever you want, you have flesh and blood, even God who created you understands and many more… All these are brutal lies from the pit of hell and from the father of lies the devil  and we must resist him by the Word of God.

Here are 10 Biblical and powerful steps on how to stop masturbating.

For you to stop masturbation and any other kind of sinful habit;

1. You should ACKNOWLEDGE that this act is sinful.

You must completely believe and agree that masturbation is a sinful and displeasing act before God. If you acknowledge this truth, you are on your way to freedom and a life of victory.

Nobody can convince you otherwise, not even the devil. The word of God says that you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. Flee immorality. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the immoral man sins against his own body.
1 Corinthians 6:18 NASB

2. Acknowledge that God can forgive all your sins..

Don’t allow Satan to stuck you with the believe that your sins cannot be forgiven. You must know that no matter how terrible your sin maybe, God’s forgiveness is readily available to you if you can confess your sin and genuinely repent of all your sins.

God is faithful to forgive all our sins and completely cleanse us from all our iniquities and wickedness 1John 1:9. Hebrews 8:12 tells us that God will forgive all our wickedness and will remember our sins no more.

That is the reason why Jesus shed his blood on the cross. Through the Blood of Jesus, we are cleansed from every unrighteousness and we obtain forgiveness, Ephesians 1:7

3. Believe That You Can Stop It.

Philippians 4:13 tells us that we can do all things through the help of Christ that strengthens and quickens us. Jesus was tempted by the devil and he overcame. He is willing to help us overcome any kind of temptation. All He wants us to do is to trust him and beckon on him to help us whenever we feel like walking into sin, Hebrews 2:18.

You must have a strong desire to quit sin and every form of unrighteousness. Your desire is to please God and obey his commandments. Daniel 1:8.

4. Let the word of God fill your mind and soul..

a. Read the word of God daily. The word of God washes our minds from dirty thoughts. a constant study of the Word of God, with emphasis on overcoming sin, sexual immorality, walking in holiness, the blood of Jesus and many others will purify our minds. Ephesians 5:26, John 17:17.

b. Meditate on God’s word daily. When you constantly meditate on God’s word, you drive those sinful thoughts away and they will no longer find a space in your soul.

Whatever you think upon, you will surely act on. Let your thoughts be fixed on what is true, right, pure, honorable, admirable, lovely and excellent. Philippians 4:8, Psalm 119:11.

5. Pray Without Ceasing.

Prayer is one of the most powerful force in the universe. When you talk with God in prayers, you draw from him mercy, strength and grace to prevail and overcome. Hebrews 4:16.

Accept God’s word, like the ones i have shared in this article and use them to talk to God. You receive power and wisdom to prevail. Prayerlessness makes you a prey to Satan. It is in the place of prayer that you draw strength to resist temptation.
Watch and pray, so that you will not give in to temptation. For the spirit is willing, but the body is weak. Mark 14:38 NLT

Spend time praying in the Holy Spirit (Speaking in tongues). It empowers your faith to overcome all the fiery darts of the devil. Jude 1:20

7. You Must Be Sensitive To And Yield To The Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit is our Helper. He helps us by reminding us of God’s word and constantly telling us where, what, how, with whom…
When you fill your mind with God’s Word, The Holy Spirit will often bring the word back to you when you need it. All you need to do is yield yourself to Him and obey, then you will not fall for the cravings of your flesh. Remember, you receive the power to obey as you spend time in prayer. He enables us to overcome, He is The Power Of God.
So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves. Galatians 5:16 NLT

8. You Must Avoid Temptations.
There are things you watch, things you read, places you go, people you hang out with, music you listen to… that bombard your mind with ungodly thoughts and stir your flesh toward sinning. You must do whatever you need to do to guard your mind and not expose yourself to these people, places or things.

Cut yourself off from any person, place or thing that feeds your flesh… Your eyes and ears are gateways to your heart and mind, therefore you must be deliberate about protecting yourself from whatever will lead you to sin.

I will refuse to look at anything vile and vulgar… Psalms 101:3 NLT
Stay away from every kind of evil. 1 Thessalonians 5:22 NLT
And don’t let yourself think about ways to indulge your evil desires. Romans 13:14b NLT

9. You Must Make Yourself Accountable To Someone Or People.
Surrounding yourself with the right kind of people is of great importance in overcoming sin. Establish a relationship with someone or some people who you can talk to regularly about what is going on in that area of your life. Someone who will also check up on you regularly to know how you are doing, pray with you and go over God’s word with you.

Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellers there is safety. Proverbs 11:14

Being involved in a local Church where your spirit is constantly fed by regular Bible studies and which has active support groups will help greatly.
We should not stop gathering together with other believers, as some of you are doing. Instead, we must continue to encourage each other even more as we see the day of the Lord coming. Hebrews 10:25 GW

10. You Must Think Of The Consequences.
One of the things you can do to stop a particular sin is to think of the consequences. When you weigh the consequences against the pleasure, you will know that you ought to deny yourself of the pleasure of sin in order to gain a bigger, better and everlasting pleasure.
Don’t you realize that this is not the way to live? Unjust people who don’t care about God will not be joining in his kingdom. Those who use and abuse each other, use and abuse sex, use and abuse the earth and everything in it, don’t qualify as citizens in God’s kingdom.  1 Corinthians 6:9 MSG
