(If you haven’t join our SUPPORT GROUP yet, i advise you to. It’s an accountability group for amazing men and women who want to break free from porn.)
I know how hard it is when you are struggling with porn addiction, you want freedom, and yet you feel like it is impossible to be free.
I just want to say that, I know God loves you, at your lowest and your highest. When you feel worthless and holiest (I don’t know if this is a word?).
So today, I wanted to share some encouraging Bible verses, the ones that you can proclaim everyday of your life, because when it comes to addiction, I think it is good to take it one day at a time. Speak these truth today, over your life, over your body and mind.
1 John 2:16
“For all that is in the world - the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life - is not from the Father but is from the world”
“Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life according to your word.”
1 Corinthians 10:13
“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.”
“I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh”
“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”
1 Corinthians 6:18
“Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body.”
“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God - this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
“The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor. Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy. Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh.”
1 Thessalonians 4:3-4
“God’s will is for you to be holy, so stay away from all sexual sin. Then each of you will control his own body and live in holiness and honor–not in lustful passion like the pagans who do not know God and his ways”
1 John 2:16-17
“For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.”
” I am using an example from everyday life because of your human limitations. Just as you used to offer yourselves as slaves to impurity and to ever-increasing wickedness, so now offer yourselves as slaves to righteousness leading to holiness.”
“But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust. Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death.”
