    15 Year Old with Masturbation Problems – Solution

    Hi Mark, I just listened to your show that was screening on TBN in South Africa. A 15 year old boy was asking how to get rid of the temptation of masturbation. I have some solid advice from experience and Scripture that works! God is really clear that it is wrong in 1 Kor 6:19. The boy needs to fight this evil spirit as it also took over in my life when I was young and nearly destroyed my marriage. The only way I could break it was to make a firm decision to turn my life around and make God the Rock of my life.
    1. Change your thoughts to focus on something good. Phil 4:8 (Meditate on it) – It really works.
    Another way is to do decide upfront what you will do next time there is a temptation. Something that will distract your thoughts – Like exercise / gym / swimming
    2. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. James 4:7
    3. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands and purify your hearts. James 4:7
    4. Recognise every temptation as an attack from the enemy. Every time you resist the temptation you should see as a brick you laid in a temple you are building for God. Recognise your victories and build on it! It makes you stronger.
    5. The armour of God in Eff 6 provides a number of tools and defences. To me the belt of truth and the shield of faith was of particular value. I used to carry a small cross in my pocket and put it in my right hand to remind me of the shield that God gives us.

    I hope this may be of help. The solution is given to us in Scripture. We need to figure out how to apply it in our lives.

    God bless you and your team.
