Porn Addiction Help – Can God Help?
Can God help me with porn addiction help? Remember, God has already gained the victory over porn addiction through the death and resurrection of His son Jesus Christ. Our job, then, is to look to Him in this understanding and give ourselves to Him in relationship and obedience. It is important to have accountability, good counsel, books, and seminars and all the other spiritual supplements to our war against pornography addiction. However, none of those things, in themselves, will bring true healing and victory. It is Christ who, after we have made ourselves available to Him, scoops out the muck and the mire of our hearts and replaces it with purity, strength, and integrity.

Sometimes, He does not do this by snapping His fingers and simply taking it away. Instead, He helps us war it out of our flesh. Healing and victory is a process of growth through Christ-centered adoration, faith, and obedience that will teach us to be true men of God. Christ, in time, appropriately handles, heals, and eliminates the deep rooted and underlying causes of our sin, growing us in Him along the way. A great place to gain context on this process is in 2 Peter 1. Here the Apostle Peter speaks of making our calling and election sure. He describes the very things which God has given us, that if we increase in them and add to our lives the virtues of faith and obedience then we will be kept from “being ineffective and unproductive” in our relationship with Christ.

Porn Addiction Help – The Battlefield
War, in a very emotional and physical human experience, is like nothing everyday civilians will ever come to grips with. Only those who have seen the battlefield can understand what it is like. If these men and women can stand, without turning away, in the face of an enemy that is using fearful tactics and deadly weaponry to destroy them, then I too can stand in the face of an enemy attempting to destroy my life.

A soldier’s job is to hold the line, to prevent the enemy from breaking through and taking ground that will threaten the freedom of the many they fight for. Their job is to risk their lives in order to defeat an enemy that is attempting to take away our way of life. In the same manner, it is our job as men of God to hold the line of our hearts, minds, and families and let nothing move us. We are to press forward in Jesus name and reclaim the land that has been taken from us. John 10:10 says, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. . .” Satan has stolen our purity and is attempting to destroy our integrity and kill the hope we hold onto. Yet, Jesus says that He has “. . .come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” He is the redeemer of all we have lost in our war.

Think of how brutal the battlefield is. The blasts of artillery, the smell of gun powder, the screams of wounded soldiers, and the bodies of those who gave themselves for freedom’s sake strewn about on the ground. It is utter chaos and full of fear and adrenaline. However, the soldier presses through and keeps going. How they do it, I will never understand. It seems a great impossibility. Yet, in all that, if they can keep moving forward then so can I and so can you. I know which side I am on and I hope you know which side you are on. Despite my greatest temptations and deepest weaknesses I know I can keep going and so can you.

Porn Addiction Help – Be Strengthened
I want to encourage you today as you seek porn addiction help. You can press through. Your enemy is not so fierce that you must lie down and give up. I understand that I do not know the severity of your problem, what it is you are facing or how deep it may be. However, Jesus can reach you wherever you are. He knows exactly what you are feeling. He is there, in the midst your struggles, your hardships, your battles, and your wars. He knows that you are insufficient and incapable of winning on your own. Therefore, if you are willing to open yourself to Him, He will break the cycle and bring you to victory. Stand firm then, let nothing move you and keep moving forward.

Here are some that have helped me press forward. You will be encouraged and strengthened though God’s Word -- Psalm 119:33-40, Proverbs 3:13-15, Proverbs 11:20, Proverbs 23:26-28, Acts 17:24-28, 1 Corinthians 6:12-20, 1 Corinthians 10:13, 2 Corinthians 2:11b, Romans 5:1-5, Philippians 4:8>, and Titus 2:11-14.

WHAT DO YOU THINK? - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

Yes, I am already a follower of Jesus
